2008, Smurfs are celebrating 50 Years old. Really unbelievable they already 50 years old. My favourite characters till now. I like them very much. Therefore to celebrate their birthday, sure Belgium philately will do something. First coming out issuse is the ATM Labels. Issued on 25 September 2008.
Of course there will be another issue of stamps and FDC on 29 September 2008.
So I show you the first cover posted on 25 September 2009 from Belgium. With a very nice commemorative postmark on it.
If you never watch Smurfs animation , then you can go for it in YouTube. Quite lots in YouTube.
Can have more information about Smurfs from wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Smurfs
For sure there are another official website for Smurfs too.
There will be aution for Smurf items , which all income will be donated to UNICEF
So if you are interested can go to have a look and bid for it.
