Smurf Statue at Brussels Central Station

Peyo aka Pierre Culliford and the father of the Smurfs was born in Brussels. When he created the Smurfs in 1958 he never thought it would become a worldwide success of which we are still talking today.

Nevertheless these little blue creatures became an ‘institute’ in many households worldwide and even today chocolates, movies, cartoon series and merchandising sell! Next to these characters, Peyo created many more comic strip characters, most of them in charge of the famous publisher Dupuis. More or less accidentally his Smurfs became a hype of which we are still proud today.
