When Linus Met Sally and Other Famous Fictional Couples

You have to be pretty hard-hearted to not get a least a little lump in your thought when you think of some of fictional couples. But have you ever stopped to think just how these crazy lovebirds ever got together? The answers may surprise you.

Linus Van Pelt and Sally Brown
According to the comic strip, Charlie Brown’s sister, Sally was born on May 26, 1959 where Charlie marked the occasion by passing out chocolate cigars to his friends. She grew up quickly. She took her first steps on August 22, 1960 and she fell in love with Linus, Lucy’s brother, on the next day. It was love at first sight, at least on her part.

In this new animated tale of the Smurfs, the biggest question about the blue guys is brought up: why is Smurfette the only girl? The answer might have something to do with a mysterious "Lost Village," but in order for Smurfette and her friends (Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty) to get there, they will have to go through the Forbidden Forest against the advice of Poppa Smurf. And, they'll have to get there before the evil wizard Gargamel does.

While this movie is completely new, the filmmakers actually went back to the original artwork from Peyo – the Belegian artist Pierre Culliford who created the Smurfs comic books in 1958 - to truly capture the look and feel of the classic Smurf’s world. “Peyo’s work has a buoyance and a lightness of being,” says direct Kelly Asbury. “For the Forbidden Forest and the Lost Village, we wanted it feel like something that the audience was experiencing with the Smurfs for the first time.”

Smurfs: The Lost Village features the voices of Demi Lovato, Rainn Wilson, Joe Manganiello, Jack McBrayer, Danny Pudi, Michelle Rodriguez, Ellie Kemper, Ariel Winter, Mandy Patinkin and Julia Roberts.

While waiting for the movie to come out, you might want to visit the official movie website where you can “Meet the Characters,” learn how to draw a Smurf, find Smurf-inspired recipes (like Marshroom House, Smurfberry Pie, Strawberry Cake and Popscicles) a Smurf quiz and other games.
