Trivia / Info:

  • "72 virgins" is a false Muslim belief that when a true believer is martyred, they will go to paradise, where they will have 72 virgins.
  • This is one of only three Smurfs sketches where Gargamel doesn't appear. The others are Smurf Radio and Smurf Memorial Day.
  • Casey, Dimmy, Junior, Tooter, and Corky are the only "main" snorks that do not appear.

Goofs / Nitpicks:

  • The show The Snorks takes place in a far-off ocean where the Snorks reside, while this segment suggests that the Snorks in a river near the Smurf Village.
  • Gaileo wears glasses in The Snorks, while in this sketch he doesn't.
  • The Snorks' snorkels are presented bent in the series while this sketch presents their snorks straight up (except in one scene where the snorks are approaching from the water).
  • One Smurf claims that the entire Smurf race thought that there was only one female in the entire world (Smurfette). In The Smurfs, the Smurfs know that females exist. There was also another female Smurf - a Smurfling named Sassette (who would later appear in Not So Smurfy).
  • In the TV show, Handy Smurf wore overalls but here he wears white pants like the other Smurfs.
  • Vanity is missing the flower in his ear.
  • Some Snorks seem to die multiple times in the segment.
  • The Snorks are underwater, yet they can light the fuses to the dynamite stuffed inside of the fish.
  • Deaf Smurf is well, deaf, but he seems to respond to what Papa Smurf is saying. Still, it is possible that he knows how to read lips.
