There has been much debate over the actual size of a smurf. Animated references to their size are arguably fanciful - often referring to them as being “three apples high”. Realists who compare their size to their “mushroom” homes surrounded by towering blades of grass, choose to reference the smurfs to these indicators, believing that smurfs are between 2-5 cms. Alternatively there is a school that references the size of smurfs to their hunter, Gargamel and his cat Azrael. Disciples of this school consider smurfs to be at least 30 cms tall. In summation it seems that the creators gave little thought to the believability of their size and more thought to the artistic interpretation of the cartoon.
