The record for "most Smurfs gathered together at one time" remains unbeaten. Close to 400 folks in Croatia painted themselves blue and wore floppy white hats. But a group from a British University remains the Smurfiest aggregate in recorded history.

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.

The record for most Smurfs gathered together at one time remains unbeaten. Close to 400 folks in Croatia painted themselves blue and wore floppy white hats, trying for a spot in the Guinness World Record. Unfortunately for the big blue group, their search of the Internet had yielded the wrong record. It turns out a British university had out-Smurfed them with an even bigger, bluer group.
