I heard one of a smurf poster that kept falling off the wall( in some kids bedroom) and trying to smother the kid. I also heard the not being able to burn smurf stuff stories and the smurfs running up the KH aisle. We only had one or two channels of tv so if the smurfs were on we watched it anyhow (on the off chance we were home on Saturday morning) Usually didn't have the chance to watch the damn smurfs anyway cuz of field service.
Gen Xers--Who remembers when Smurfs were Demonic?
Boy do I ever, I actually referred to that totally by coincidence in a thread I started today LOL
Your book looks like a real good read, apostawriter! Will have to check into that. Have bookmarked the blog too.
Welcome to JWD wonderwoman, what a kickin' avatar!
of the (yeah, I had to throw out my stuffed smurfs, class, which stunk cause I bought them with my own allowance!) class and the
hey, wait a minute, how come the evil female smurf had dark hair and the 'good' smurfette was blonde???
i heard it as...a little girl had been given Smurf curtains for her bedroom and the first night she awoke to find the evil Smurfs had jumped off the curtains and began dancing around her room, laughing demonically.

I LOVE this idea. You'll have to show us when it's done.
I went to the UK in '78 and had not yet seen/heard of Smurfs. I thought they were cute and come home with a few smurf toys and 2 records for my little brother. When I started hearing rumors about them being demonic, I just didn't believe it. I hid the records and still have them! (45's) <= should be a 'blue' smug smilie...
Man you guys got it ALL wrong!
A smurf floated THROUGH the Kingdom Hall and I know someone who knows someone who SEEN it.
Just like the lady that tore the page out of the Bible, oh yeah the page with Jehovahs name on it, the Scripture of validation- Psalms 83:18. I know someone who was there! yep she says; "No! God's name aint Jehovah!" (publisher shows her Psalms 83:18) Householder ripps page out of Bible and says defiantly; "well it aint there now"! ...anyone remember that one?
i am 46 and i remember that mess. i was instructed not to let my son watch the Smurfs on t.v. i always was kind of mixed up over their decision but as you know, no one could question the GB.
I remember this all too well. Just a couple weeks ago my sister bought me a smurf at a garage sale. I sat it on my entertainment center, where everyone who comes in has to see it. My mom did a double take, but never said a word!
