much love smurfday

Love: the Smurfs!

After briefly mentioning them in my last post, I thought the Smurfs deserve a Much Love Monday post dedicated to them. Possibly anyone who spent their childhood in Indonesia in the '90s (and beyond) read and adored these translated comic books. Sure, they're well known around the globe, but they were really popular to us, along with all the other awesome European comic books (Asterix, Tintin, Lucky Luke, the list goes on). So when my childhood best friend sent me a couple of them for my birthday last week, it brought back the best memories. Those Smurfs are a bunch of charming little fellas, I tell ya.
