Marx Smurf

A followup to, Papa Smurf is a Communist. Wikipedia has an article about The Smurfs and communism "Papa Smurf has a wide beard, which some feel looks like Karl Marx's. He also wears red slacks and a red cap, displaying the stereotypical color of Communism throughout the world. Despite the society's communal nature, Papa Smurf does have the ultimate authority, often overruling Brainy Smurf when he oversteps his boundaries. In several episodes when Papa Smurf is not present, the Smurf Village's utopian system destabilizes entirely."

Also, "Communism fell in Russia around the time that The Smurfs were lost from TV syndication and comic publication."

Gummi Bears, what was there game?
