I'm giving away my age here but I would be lying if I said that I wasn't looking forward to the new remake of the 80's hit cartoon "The Smurfs". I remember waking up early saturday morning with my brothers and sisters and camping out in front of the tv with a bowl of lucky charms while we watched the show.

Well as an added bonus to this good news, the production team has just revealed that the beautiful "Smurfette" (the only female smurf) will be played by Katy Perry!

Spoiler Alert: The movie will go into how Smurfette  was created by the archenemy of the Smurfs, wicked sorcerer Gargamel, in an effort to use her as a saboteur against the Smurfs. Gargamel's plan failed though when Papa Smurf took pity and reversed her spell, turning Smurfette into a real, live Smurf! From that point on, she became much more attractive, and became desired by ALL the Smurfs!

The movie is scheduled for release August 3, 2011.
I'm looking forward to this! The only thing left for them to do is make a remake of "Thundercats", "He-Man", and "Sherah"...and the world would be a happier place:)
