Synopsis

Smurf Village Theater is making the production of Dr. Smurf and Mr. Hyde, but troubles began to unfold when an old man named Mr. Talbot, who lives in the forest, is being chased by Gargamel, who believed that he would be the legendary Wolfman, to which everybody in the kingdom had talked about, and Sassette accidentally becomes a werewolf when she was bitten by one.

Trivia

  • Unlike the previous direct-to-video film, The Smurfs Meet Frankenstein. This one is set in The Smurfs' Season 1-8 timeframe (predating the time travel storyline from Season 9).
  • This movie was one of the few times when Brainy didn't get the boot out of the village and he was more tolerable.
  • This was the final WB Smurfs direct-to-video film to feature the Smurflings, Baby Smurf, Grandpa Smurf, Nanny Smurf and Smoogle.
  • Again, the movie had art style differences between The Smurfs characters. Both Peyo-style (castle guards, human village, etc.) and Scooby-Doo style humans (Lawrence Talbot/Wolfman) are much rather different, including its darker and edgier atmosphere from the Scooby-Doo series.
  • Jon McClenahan was one of the character layout artists in the film.
