New Smurfs series arrives


Blue, small and standing only three apples tall, the Smurfs will star in a new Nickelodeo­n series beginning 6:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 10.

The series marks the return of globally renowned characters to television and follows Papa Smurf, Smurfette, Brainy, Hefty, Clumsy and the other inhabitant­s of Smurf Village.

In the premiere episode (“Smurf-Fu”), Smurfette rescues Brainy from a giant snake and the other Smurfs ask her to teach them “Smurf-Fu.” Next in, “Diaper Daddy,” when everyone is tired of changing Baby’s diapers, Handy decides to invent a robot that will do the job.

The voice cast includes:

 David Freeman (“7 Promises”) is Papa Smurf, the father figure keeping the other Smurfs in line.

 Berangere McNeese (“Matriochka­s”) is Smurfette, a curious Smurf who is always ready to take part in new adventures.

 Lenny Mark Irons is Gargamel, a conniving human wizard with a bottomless thirst to capture Smurfs.

 Youssef El Kaoukibi (“NRJ Belgium”) is Brainy, who considers himself the smartest of the bunch.

 Catherine Hershey (“Boundary Games”) is Willow, the brave and wise matriarch of a new tribe of girl Smurfs.
