Do you remember Saturday morning cartoons? Do they even have them now? All I know is the last time I watched cartoons, they were WAY different than what we grew up with. I remember Saturday mornings as though it were yesterday. My sister and I would wake up early, get our breakfast ready, settle onto the couch with a blanket and our food, and wait for our favorites.
Our favorites… they varied. Mine were The Muppet Babies, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and of course The Smurfs. Back then televisions shows, even cartoons, had a different meaning. There was a message, you took something away from the show without even knowing it, and each episode left us wanting more and excited for the following weekend.
Now that I am older and have a child of my own, I am thrilled that The Smurfs are back. A few years ago I was able to introduce my daughter to The Smurfs on the big screen and then The Smurfs 2. I’m excited to share that our friends are returning to the big screen with their new movie, Smurfs: The Lost Village on April 7, 2017.
