Sb Gargamel by common-calluna Sb Gargamel by common-calluna
I've been out of the DA loop for a while, but recently I started going back to Sketchbomb and doodling so I've got a backlog of stuff to post. Here's my "least favorite cartoon character" from this month's gathering.

I always disliked Gargamel, even when I was young enough to not despise the rest of the Smurf's. Bad design, poorly executed- he was always more annoying interruption than anything else. Plus, why was he a monk? Some sort of Rasputin reference maybe? I never got him.

The cartoons messed it all up. He is a stronger character in the original books. The monk thing? No-one knows. Maybe it was just chosen as it's easy to draw and monks don't change their habit very often. Good drawing by the way :-)

Thanks!

Yeah, there are a lot of things about the TV show that were unfortunate. Hanna-Barbera did a lot of good as far as popularizing animation in the 80s but man they took the idea of a "cranking it out" to a whole new level.

They did spoil it when they sent them off time traveling.
