  • This is a great episode because it focuses a lot on the windmill, a building not often featured (or even shown) in the series. Many exterior and interior shots of it are shown.moreless

    This is a longer Smurfs episode packed with adventure. Centered mainly around the windmill, this episode begins with the premise that a hurricane is coming, so all the smurfs are securing the village, with Handy's supervision.



    After other smurfs are put in charge of securing the ship, well, Smurfette's flowerbed (with the help of Handy's cool crane), and other smurf houses (Vanity's in particular with all his mirrors), Handy comes to the windmill where he puts Lazy in charge of securing it. However, Lazy, as usual, has fallen asleep so Handy reprimands him and asks him to not let him down and to have the windmill secure in time before the storm. Lazy gets right to work but has trouble with one of the levers that stops the windmill. It breaks and he falls back onto the main gear where a beam hits him on the head and knocks him out.



    The hurricane is almost at Smurf Village and Handy and Papa Smurf are making their rounds to see that the village is indeed secure. But when they get to the windmill, Lazy appears to be sleeping. Handy wakes and scolds him, then gathers up other smurfs to help him secure the windmill. The storm begins to bear down as the smurfs scramble to close and lock the windows and doors, then get the windmill blades stopped. However, the storm has come and they are too late--the windmill is pulled off the ground and into the air.



    Papa Smurf sees the windmill fly away and, after the storm subsides, calls the smurfs together to follow the windmill, only to find the ship has been damaged during the storm. They begin to repair it after some words of encouragement from Papa Smurf.



    Meanwhile, the windmill has landed in an island volcano that Handy calculates erupts every 500 years--and this day is it! Handy and the others begin work on a helicopter-like machine out of the windmill's parts while Lazy goes off to sulk, falling asleep (of course), and having a dream about being heroic.



    Back in the village, the smurfs get the ship repaired and set off to find the other smurfs. With the volcano about to erupt, the helicopter is complete and Smurfette goes off to find Lazy, who no longer wants to live. Smurfette drags him back to the helicopter which takes off as soon as they return.



    The helicopter makes it out of the volcano but Handy hits his head trying to steer it. Lazy scrambles up to him to take over, but there's nowhere to land so they crash into the water, only to be surrounded by sharks. Natural Smurf puts the sharks at bay and they are all rescued by the other smurfs.moreless
