Grouchy hates a lot of things. Unfortunately, one of them is Christmas itself. To teach him a couple of things about this wonderful event, he is to be visited by three Smurf spirits (of past, present and future) which will take him on a trip he will never forget.

It's emotional but also funny. A remake of the original Christmas Carol made with Smurfs. I'm glad they decided to use the cartoony Smurfs as the animated ones look in comparison a lot worse. Make sure you watch it!

I read the other review on this film and have to disagree totally. Every movie I've ever seen about A Christmas Carol has the guy who hates Christmas and is visited by the 3 ghost of Christmas Past, Present and future to show them how things would be different if they kept upon their negative ways. That's all this movie does is follow the same formula as all the others that came before it.

Did I find it negative and did it leave me feeling that way? No. It teaches one of the smurfs how his actions affect everyone and he learns and it leads to a very happy ending!

My daughter really enjoyed this and I believe it takes all the adult movies of the same theme and puts it on a level for children to understand. Did A Christmas Carol with Micky Mouse leave a negative feeling for you too? It was the same movie just longer?

This short animation is about how the Smurfs make Grouchy like Christmas again.

After watching "The Smurfs: A Christmas Carol", I find myself in a rather gloomy mood. The story is dark, with lots of grumpiness, antagonism and dissatisfaction. Even though they say "don't be grumpy", the brain picks up "grumpy" at a subconscious level, so there is a constant stream of negative words and negative themes. The constant negativity gets viewers down. And there is even a scene about captivity! Even though the ending contains some positive scenes, it is far from enough to lift the gloomy mood the film spent 20 minutes to create. I cannot see how this animation can make people feel merry and joyful.

It's the spin on Dicken's 'A Christmas Carol' Smurfs style.

Grouchy Smurf is sick and tired of getting the same stupid present from Papa Smurf every year and is unhappy that he does not get the present he really wants.

This leads to Grouchy Smurf to behave badly to the other Smurfs and he refuses to celebrate Christmas.

The Smurfs of Christmas Past, Present and Future appear to teach him to appreciate Christmas. The Smurf of Christmas Future shows Grouchy a future where all the Smurfs will wander into the forest and get captured by Gargamel.

The film is bookended with CGI animation before going to the traditional animation for the bulk of the story.

Kids who enjoy the Smurfs film will appreciate this cartoon the most. At least its spirit is true to the Dickens story.
