Fanon: "Smurfs in the City" Season 1
Greedy is the Village Chef and is in charge of preparing every Smurf's meals on a daily basis. While he tends to eat more than his fair share and even hoards some goodies all to himself, he has displayed a much stronger sense of generosity by concerning himself with every Smurf's health. He has said on multiple occasions, "I love eating almost as much as I love watching others eat."
He knows that without his services, the village would risk perishing from a lack of nutritious and delicious meals. In "Greedy Goes on Strike," every Smurf started taking his hard work for granted, he decided to venture someplace where he would be appreciated. In time, the Smurfs apologized and begged him to come home, so he returned to the village with help from his new friend, Prince Pyro.
With his voracious appetite, he has struggled to maintain a healthy weight from a young age. He remembers being teased as a Smurfling when he could not play Smurfball as efficiently as the others due to his extra weight. Although the teasing has just about ended by adulthood, the memories serve as a reminder to keep himself in check.
In "Gormandizing Greedy," he hit his heaviest scale marker and was forced to go on a diet, but would snack behind every Smurfs' back. This nearly led to his demise after Gargamel caught him and considered fattening him up to later eat. The thought of such a terrifying ordeal made him realize how much his fellow Smurfs cared about him to be so tough with his weight management.
Should some Smurf request cooking lessons, he is all too happy to oblige. He holds sessions in the Smurf Village Schoolhouse if more than several Smurfs wish to learn a particular dish. He has become one of the most popular teachers because, at the end of each class session, he and his students "have their cake and eat it, too!"
Relationship with Smurfette
He first meets Smurfette in "The Smurfette." Like the majority of his fellow Smurfs, Greedy developed a crush on her after she was transformed by the True Blue Spell. He made food in her image, cooked more of her favorite dishes, and even offered her a lifetime of "delicious Smurfiness" when asking her to marry him. After she informed everyone that she felt too young to marry, he has taken a step back. Regardless, he still enjoys her company and friendship, and some romantic attraction tends to resurface with the coming of Spring each year.

Relationship with Moxette Smurfette

He is easily identified from the crowd by wearing a chef hat and white napkin tied around his neck. He also sports the generic white trousers and seems to be a bit heavier than his fellow Smurfs.
In the cartoon show, he was voiced by Hamilton Camp. A latter would be B.J. Novak, who voiced Baker Smurf in the 2011 Smurfs film and it's 2013 sequel.
- He is an amalgamation of his own design along with Baker, Nabby, and Chef Smurfs from the comic books.
- He is allergic to pollen.
- Greedy has been invited to parties held by other Smurfs where the food provided isn't catered by him, which may suggest that he isn't the only Smurf in the village who can cook or bake. This is especially evident from the episode, "Greedy's Magic Porridge Pot," which featured every Smurf making their own favorite dish for the Feast of Plenty.
- His Zodiac sign is on the cusp of Capricorn and Aquarius, and his birthday is January 19th.
