    Almost sounds like something the "Robot Chicken" guys would do. (Except that it is serious, and not funny.)

    The scary thing about this is that they think people will react more to images of cartoon characters being bombed than those of real people affected by war.

    Even scarier, they're probably right. [​IMG]

    So the Peyo people are fine with this, but they can't get their act in gear and start getting Smurfs released on DVD in the US?

    I hope to God that I never have to see that commercial, I grew up with the Smurfs and i'm franky shocked that the Peyo family went along with this.

    Why? It's not as if this is some tasteless parody using the smurfs.

    Sean,
    i'm just not down with the idea of seeing the Smurf village turned into Smurfing Private Brainy.
