but modern kids have barely even heard of Smurfs. So why even buy the license? Why go to all the trouble of remaking a classic product that is decades before your target audience's time? I just don't get it. - Pxtl

It is easier and cheaper than thinking of something original.

This happens all the time, in music, movies, etc... You have a hit with a movie about dinosaurs you get 100 more dinosaur movies. A unique sounding band gets a number one single and next thing you know everyone is looking for a carbon copy (even if they have to "manufacture" one). Rip off, rehash, remake... it is the way the entertainment business works.
