These Blue Cartoon Characters Sparked Some Unusual Products

 - Jan 16, 2013
While the four Smurf criminals were finally caught in Australia, the adorable cartoon versions of the Smurfs would never go on a crime spree or rob convenient stores.

In fact, the little blue cartoon characters are so lovable, they have influenced designers and creators to come up with products inspired by them and their iconic blue hue. From Smurf-shaped memory sticks to Smurf-blue furniture and fashion shows, the impact of this nostalgic childhood TV show is seen in all different industries. Even celebrities such as Katy Perry have been caught copying their indigo-hued style.

The Smurfs have always taught us to be kind to one another, not to try and hot-wire a stolen getaway car.
