    When I was young, There was a rumor through out our circut, that the smurfs were demonized. We were told at once to destroy all smurf toys, dolls, and figures. There were storys flying around about talking smurf statue figures, that would get up and walk across the floor, ect... Does anyone remember this, or did it only happen in my part of the world? My sisters and I watched in horor as all smurfs were rounded up, and placed in consentration camps (burn barrels) and exterminated. It wasn't very smurfy to watch.

    LMAO Ohhh yes, that brings back memories!

    The story I heard was that some kid took one of his little smurfs to the kingdom hall and during the meeting it got up and walked out on it's own!

    Must have been a demonized papa smurf which just got too fed up with the excruciatingly boring talk...

    I found the Smurfs pretty boring, with all their utopian talk. Probably that's what it was all about: rivalry between two groups as to who had the better claim to be creating paradise on Earth!

    Here in Oz we also had an urban legend concerning the Cabbage Patch dolls. They would move ceereal boxes in the kitchen overnight, things like that!

    In Australia, we have a newly appointed Branch Overseer. Many years ago when the legend was all the 'rage' he had to give a talk at a DC to calm the hysteria, I seem to recall.

    And they say the Witnesses don't have anything to do with the demons!

    I were in the org as a child from 1989 to 1994 but I don't remember the urban legend about the smurf in my region. I was reading a lot of their books and there was no problem.
