The first appear of the smurfs was in October 23, 1958 by Pierre Culliford, a Belgium from Brussels.
He drew his series which called 'Johan and Pirlouit' , Johann and Pewit (English Names) and their attempts to recover the magic flute. On their journeys, they discover strange new creatures: The Smurfs! then the smurfs became so popular that they were given their own series.
