I have never actually heard the Smurf story or any issues with Smurfs. Perhaps it never reached us here in the UK.
We ALWAYS heard horror stories about people buying stuff from second hand stores.....suits and scarfs trying to strangle and squeeze people to death and toy building blocks reassembling themselves to make scary messages.
I used to be terrified of ELO's "Mr Blue Sky" because it contained the 'Satanic Death' march at the end the song and was riddled with backward messages.(except it wasn't of course)
And does anybody remember the story where John Denver supposedly made an announcement at the beginning of one of his concerts where he asked if there was any JW's in the audience, and if so, they were told to leave.
JW's LOVE stories like this.
