Brainy Smurf (original French name Schtroumpf à Lunettes) is one of the main characters of The Smurfs comic books and cartoon show. Distinguished from the other Smurfs by the large glasses he wears, he considers himself the most intelligent Smurf in the village and an expert on everything, although his actual knowledge is questionable at best; often, his attempts to help in a given situation leads to more problems. He considers himself Papa Smurf's second-in-command, although even Papa Smurf himself is often tired by his sanctimonious attitude. He also has archived his self-perceived wit and wisdom in volumes of books entitled Quotations from Brainy Smurf. The Smurfs often respond to his self-righteous preaching by tossing him out of the village (in the original comics, they instead whacked him on the head with a mallet) and never listening to his plans. His original French name translates to "Smurf with Glasses", highlighting the fact he is not actually smarter than the other smurfs, even though he fancies himself to be.
