Guess who turns 50 this year?

Well if you guessed the little blue guys you would be correct! Smurfs or Schtroumpfs (as they are known in Belgian) began life 50 years ago as a comic strip. So for their big 50, they are getting a new movie, stamps, comic books and a whole new line of female smurfs! Yes, no longer will Smurfette be the only girl in town.

Hopefully this will increase the value of my Smurf action figures that I got in the 80s!
