Belgium: Smurf

On Thursday I got three cards from Belgium.

One of them shows a Smurf. Smurfs are small, blue, human-like creatures who live in mushroom-shaped houses in the forest. They were created by Peyo in 1958 and first appeared in the Belgian comic Johan and Peewit published in the Spirou magazine. Already in 1959 the first independent Smurf story was published. Until today more than 100 Smurf characters were created, which appeared in the 31 Smurf comics, video games, movies and TV series.


With awesome matching stamps:
60 years Smurfs (two from set of five) (issued 27-01-2018)
with First Day Special Postmark


Thank You very much Gerda!
