It was a blue day in Hollywood as The Smurfs were honored on Tuesday (December 13) with a handprint ceremony at Grauman's Chinese Theatre - cementing their Hollywood legacy along the historic Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Papa Smurf, Smurfette and Clumsy Smurf were on hand for the ceremony, that included the traditional imprinting of their hands into cement.
The Smurfs were first introduced to the world in 1958 as comic book characters and over the next fifty years have come to life in books, television, films, and video games.
The characters' cross-generational appeal has only grown as children who grew up on The Smurfs are now parents themselves and introducing their children to The Smurfs for the first time.
The Smurfs are also celebrating the recent release of an an all-new mini movie, "The Smurfs: A Christmas Carol," exclusive to the 3-Disc Holiday Blu-ray and DVD gift set that is now on sale for the holidays.
