The Smurfs (2021) Season 1 Volume 3 DVD review

Jan 19, 2023- Permalink

Paramount and Nickelodeon Home Entertainment are releasing The Smurfs (2021) Season 1 Volume 3 on DVD and I had the opportunity to take an early look at this third part of the 2021 reboot.

Our three apple high heroes experience new adventures in this latest edition and, as always, find themselves trying to escape the clutches of Gargamel. Here’s a list of the eight included episodes:

  • The Smurfs Show
  • Smurfboards / Monkey See, Monkey Do
  • Flying Ace / Lab Assistant
  • Order of Merit / Smurfy Mother’s Day!
  • Leaping Lizards / Cover Story
  • Papa Times Two / Fake News
  • You’re Fired! / Mirror, Mirror on the Armoire
  • Smurfing Places / Poet Slam

As mentioned in previous DVD reviews of HD series, though the show was broadcast in HD market forces and its intended audience means that DVD is a better format for the studio. Despite the lower resolution of the video presentation it still looks quite good and the primary colours of the animation really pop.

On the audio side, the 5.1 soundtrack is mostly front-heavy. Dialogue is clear and centred and music is bright and clear.

Your young fans of the Smurfs will enjoy The Smurfs (2021) Season 1 Volume 3 on DVD.
