Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming
The Smurfs introduces the 3-6 year old TV audience to a wide array of pro-social lessons using the device of a wise and patient elder who guides younger generations as they learn to deal with the complexities of interpersonal relationships and with their own, sometimes confusing feelings. Smurfs are tiny blue creatures who live in a very magical forest along with other magical creatures. Each Smurf represents a particular character trait (e.g. brainy, jokey, greedy, handy, pushover) a narrative device that helps young viewers understand some abstract feelings and ideas. As the Smurfs confront day-to-day life, they encounter unexpected obstacles, issues, and feelings that may threaten their plans, community, or self image. We watch as the village elder helps the younger ones figure out who they are and how they should behave - striving to teach them the power of love and caring. Various individual episodes also explore such issues as kindness, greed vs sharing, fighting, repsonsiblity, humility, carelessness, self confidence, etc. In other words, these are many of the issues that any 3-6 year old might encounter in the play-yard.
