Smurfs living a worn-torn village?

UNICEF is trying to get our attention these days. Maybe because funds are getting low, or other world events such as Earthquakes, Floods, Hurricanes, Tsunami's just seem to be taking center stage. In Belgium, their newest campaign features those relatively peaceful 80's Smurf's with their village getting carpet bombed and baby Smurf crying for his dead mother, Smurfette (Which in reality couldn't be Smurfette, because she was sent in as Gargamel’s evil spy with the intent of destroying the Smurf village, then changed. Unless of course - she was pregnant…by Gargamel?). All this for the sake of Africa! If I were a kid and saw that, it would kind of freak me out. Instead, they should have chosen something closer to Belgium adult’s hearts, like Baywatch.
