The Smurfs 2, is an American 3D live-action/computer-animated comedy film which is based on the Peyo ( Pierre Culliford ) characters created by the Belgian comics artist. In the early 1950s Peyo’s character Johan appeared in the magazine Spirou, a second character was added as a companion to Johan called Peewit.
The comic strip very soon became popular and a staple of the weeklies. The Smurfs were introduced into a storyline featuring Johan and Peewit called The Magic Flute in 1958.
The Smurfs became so popular in their own right that they quickly supplanted Johan and Peewit and so were spun off to form their own cartoon series.
” Ooh La La ” was originally written for Lola Blanc ( Kandice Melonakos ) as her debut single, the title is a play on her stage name. When the track was heard by Dr. Luke, he thought the song would be perfect for Britney and a deal was made to the song to be recorded by her instead. Dr. Luke brought in songwriters Bonnie McKee and J. Kash, they rewrote the lyrics so the song would be better suited to both Britney and the film, The Smurfs 2.
Britney said of her decision to record the song for the film soundtrack ” always loved the Smurfs as a kid and now my boys are the biggest Smurfs fans EVER. I wanted to surprise them with a song in the movie. I know they’ll think it’s Smurftastic! ”
