Smurfette was a sent there as a spy by Gargamell, but she was over come the smurf's smurftacular kindness. And it doesn't matter if she was a girl because smurfs are asexual. :)

I mean how smurf is that?! :lol:

i was born in 85, but really grew up in the 90s... so i only remember about 1/2 that stuff.

...i feel so old

God I feel old, although I was born in '84, so I'm nearly too young to remember 1/2 that stuff.
 
:lol:
I was born in '84, and I know more than half, and you forgot the Muppets and Fragle Rock! :D
 
Even though I grew up in the eighties (Born in '82) I've never heard of Dr.Snuggles, Seabert and the Thunderbirds. Did I miss something ? :eek:
 
Ah the eighties, a great decade for music too.

Don't forget:
