They are turning 50 this year, but they remain among the most popular characters in Belgian comic strips. They were created by Belgian comic strip author, Peyo in 1958. They first appeared in “La flûte à six trous” (The flute with six wholes), in Spirou journal.
Their 50th birthday is being celebrated by comic strips lovers all over the world, but at the Belgian Comic Strip Center, visitors will be invited to consider Peyo’s work from a new and original angle: it is because of their individual weaknesses that the Smurfs discover their strength…
You will be able to meet the Smurfs at the Belgian Comic Strip Museum in Brussels, through authentic documents lent by Peyo’s family. The exhibition will last until November 16th.
So hurry up and smurf to the museum or smurf their website athttp://www.stripmuseum.be/en/home
During our new coming tour to Belgium in 2 weeks, our guests will be able to pay them a visit if they wish.
