  • This skit is a parody of The Smurfs based on the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Trivia / Info:

  • The skit alludes to criticism of government response to Hurricane Katrina. Such as one scene where two Smurfs are on a roof protesting with one of them holding a sign saying "SMURF FEMA".
  • Brainy Smurf's line "Papa Smurf says that the king doesn't care about blue people." is a reference to rapper Kanye West's controversial quote "George Bush doesn't care about black people."

Goofs / Nitpicks:

  • Brainy Smurf says there are no more smurfs left. However, we see two smurfs on a roof (one is picked up by a bird) and another looting a TV from a store.
  • Gargamel purees several smurfs but their white clothing is still intact when he goes to eat them later. Which is probably why they don't taste good.
