The Smurfs and the Magic Flute, the second volume of the Papercutz series that reprint the original Smurfs stories in graphic novel format, contains the first appearance of the little blue people. The is actually a Johan and Peewit story that feature the Smurfs in a supporting role, but was repackaged as a Smurfs story began to grow in popularity.

It is not much of an introduction to the Smurfs, since the only Smurf with a distinct personality here is Papa Smurf. They don’t level yet in the lush

'mari kita mensmurf bahasa smurf dengan para smurfs!'.
ini dia bacaan gw sejak jaman sd dulu...
gila dah lama banget ga baca petualang para smurf ini!
satu yg unik banget dari bangsa smurf yg tinggal di desa jamur itu: bahasa smurf!
hampir semua noun/verb/adjective/adverb diganti dengan kata 'smurf'...kadang suka bingung juga bacanya he4x...
di buku ini mereka ketemu sama johan & pirlouit, duo konyol yg bener2 kocak, terutama si pelawak istana pirlouit dgn 'si jenggot' kambingnya itu!
bener2 dob

I didn't even know these comics existed, but happened across it and couldn't resist as I loved the tv series as a child. Don't be put off by the fact that the Smurfs aren't really the main characters in this story. It is more of an introduction to the setting. The story revolves around Peewit and Johan, two boys living in a medieval-type castle who happen upon a magic flute that cause people to dance when it is played. It is stolen by an evil robber and, of course, adventure ensues. Great read, ...more

This barely made the 3 star cut. The bulk of the story is Smurfless and follows the adventures of Johan and Peewit as they try to reclaim the magical flute. (It makes people dance.) Things picked up when the Smurfs finally showed up. They had some good fun with their confusing language. (Papa Smurf got royally smurfed off when Peewit said he was a smurf.) Also, Johan said "Heavens to Murgatroyd" which has got to be a worth at least a star.
Probably this is the first time Peyo show his most famous work, the Smurfs, in his lesser known work, i.e. Johan et Pierrot - or in this case, Pirlouit. The two heroes, Johan and Pirlouit, have to face an evil guy, Terdesakus, who has plan to take over the kingdom using foreign mercenary, with a little help from the magic flute made by the Smurfs.

Actually, I read this for the first time back in the '80s. Like it then. Still find it a fun read at this present time.

Oh man the memories. I've loved the movie since I was a child and I'm so happy to finally read the source. Great story. Johan and Peewit are classic classic characters. It's neat how much of the comic made the translation to the film. I wish NBM would publish the rest of the Johan/Peewit stuff rather than riding the Smurf wave. I'm still happy this stuff is finally getting published. Just... Smurfs are Smurfs while Johan and Peewit are fruit and cake!

In the second of the series of new Smurf graphic novels, we're gifted with the original story of how people were introduced to them. Although they don't actually appear in the book until three quarters through, the other characters in the book are both entertaining and well drawn. A great story to keep youngsters entertained and enthralled as they learn the story of the Smurfs and the adventures they get themselves into.

While I remember the Smurfs TV series fondly from my childhood, The Smurfs and the Magic Flute didn't hold my attention. The Smurfs are more or less bit players in a rather generic medieval story, and they don't show up until the second half of the book.

Also, the artist was still developing the Smurfs characters, so their looks, personalities and habitat aren't fully formed yet.
This is the first story the Smurf's appear in! The story is about two friends trying to recover a stolen magic flute, which turns out to have been crafted by the Smurfs; some of the humor reminds me a little of the Asterix comics. Oh, and I guess the new Smurf movie is live-action! (Kind of hard to imagine, actually.....)

This comic has everything that children and adult would enjoy. The story is funny, engaging, timeless, safe for all age and drawn beautifully by Peyo. Available in various language, and because of the soon to be release Smurf the movie (3D), the comic series is re-released in English. Happy reading.

This was amazing. I had no idea that the Smurfs had been around for 50 years in the form of a Dutch comic series. I don't know why this is tagged #2 because it is their first appearance. oddly they don't show up until the last quarter of the book.

I learned that the Smurfs had a very effective heirarchical structure led by their patriarch, Papa Smurf.

Attention ! Album historique ! Première apparition des Schtroumpfs !

Un très bon album, avec notamment de croustillants dialogues avec les petits hommes bleus.

Nice, some of my memories about them was nostalgic when I was Child. Anybody, can you search or give some information about it to me... ?
A medieval village and a magic flute. The humans needs the help of the smurfs. A very good reading for kids, funny and great art.

I definitely recommend this for Cub Scout-aged boys, who will appreciate its slapstick shenanigans.
