Smurf Reference to Fozzie Bear?
I may have found a reference to Fozzie in one of the early episodes of the Smurfs. In the episode "Bewitched, Bothered and Besmurfed" (available on DVD), Grouchy is transformed from his usual grumpy self to a comical Smurf by way of a magic locket. When the transformation happens, Grouchy immediately says "Wocka Wocka Wocka!" It's actually spelled "wocka" in the subtitles, and Grouchy even tells a bad joke: "Hey, Smurf, you hear the one about the Smurfball game? It was called on account of rain! You get it? Wocka wocka wocka!" Throughout the episode, Grouchy keeps saying "wocka wocka wocka". I checked the DVD and each time Grouchy says it, in the subtitles, it's spelled "wocka".
- That link doesn't work for me, but based on your description, it does sound like a verbal mention. —Scott (talk) 05:55, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
The link doesn't work? Crud. They must've taken it down. (Sorry). I guess the best thing I can suggest right now is the DVD (Smurfs Season 1, vol. 1) is in print. It can be purchased and it might be available to rent if someone wants to look into it further to verify the information. In the meantime, I'll keep my eyes open if it pops up on Youtube.

Smurf influence on Fraggles?
Jim said in a few interviews that he really enjoyed the Smurfs show, and I feel like I heard something about how it had to do somewhat with the conception Fraggle Rock in one way or another (but I could be wrong). I didn't want to add it without a source, so if anyone has access to the interview, it might be worth adding. Scooter 05:13, 22 October 2006 (UTC)
- Can you remember any more details about the interviews? Were they print articles or videotaped? — Scott (talk) 05:16, 22 October 2006 (UTC)
- Well, I just hunted through the Lexis-Nexis database of major papers/magazines and couldn't find a thing. This seems to imply that either the interview was on-camera, or in a niche periodical or something like TV Guide (which the database doesn't cover). -- Andrew Leal (talk) 15:09, 22 October 2006 (UTC)
Elmo in movie
I saw this in the theaters and there was a guy in an Elmo costume that the Smurfs thought was a red troll. They also had the Muppet Whatnot builder in FAO Schwartz.SesameStreet'sBIGGESTFAN 02:11, July 30, 2011 (UTC)
I saw that too, although I only saw Kermit, Statler, Wardlof and Lew Zelend on a collage in the Muppet Whatnot builder. User:Gary the Gaget Dude
