Is a a smurf a gnome?

For classification purposes, the genus would be gnome, the species would be smurf.

Yabu no, smurfs are not gnomes
Yanbu, smurfs are indeed gnomes

No, a smurf is a smurf not a gnome.

Everyone knows that smurffs are male fairies smile

A smurf is a pixie. A gnome is a small bearded man with a hat. I know smurfs wear hats but they are blue.

I hope this helps

Cabin then what is smurfette?

I think smurfs are a subset of gnomes with common lineage to the garden gnome.

Smurfette was made out of clay and magic by the smurfs enemy Gargamel to trick the smurfs, and no I wouldn’t say smurfs are gnomes totally different creatures

Definitely not gnomes - or only very very very distantly related

They are mutant Wombles.

Gnomes are thought to have evolved from Gnomapithecus in the early Paleolithic.

Smurfs evolved from Boy George's blue chin circa 2008.

How dare anyone say they are gnomes?!?!?

PurpleDaisies Sun 30-Aug-20 11:04:18


Smurfs are smurfs.

Pixies are green. I was a sixer in the Pixies. I know.

I am unsure whether smurfs are gnomes. But they are most definitely NOT pixies.

FedUpAtHomeTroels Sun 30-Aug-20 11:17:10

I think they are gnomes, would that mean.
All Smurfs are gnomes but not all gnomes are smurfs?

WhatamessIgotinto Sun 30-Aug-20 11:18:01

A Smurf is not a pixie, what is this madness? Smurfs are Smurfs from Smurfland. Or Smurfsville. Or Smurf Vegas or something.

No, smurfs are not gnomes.
