"Smurfed Behind: A Bit Of The Smurfish Spring" is a story that took place during The Lost Year when the Smurfs were traveling through time using the Key Of Chronos crystals. It is the adaptation of the cartoon show episode "Shamrock Smurfs" from Season 9.
When the Smurfs emerged on the Emerald Isle, Grandpa Smurf warned them about the legends of leprechauns. Jokey, deciding to have fun at his fellow Smurfs' expense, used Painter's green paint and disguised himself as a leprechaun to fool them. However, the Smurfs got tired of eating nothing but potatoes, so Greedy went off to find something else the Smurfs could eat while Papa Smurf worked on arranging the time crystals to open up the portal again. In his search for food, Greedy came across a patch of shamrocks and decided to make a stew out of them. Upon his first taste of the stew, though, he was transformed into a leprechaun and decided to use his newfound magical abilities to play pranks on his fellow Smurfs. Tapper learned that Greedy had eaten of this stew, which he remembered his parent Smurfs warning him not to eat of, and kept the other Smurfs from eating it so they would not be turned into leprechauns. While Papa Smurf now worked on a counter-spell in order to change Greedy back into a Smurf before sundown, where he will remain a leprechaun forever, Brainy decided that he will try capturing Greedy and get a wish granted from him (since he heard that leprechauns had power to grant whoever catches them one wish), with the intention that he will wish for all the Smurfs to return home. However, when Brainy did catch Greedy, he became so upset with him being a leprechaun that he wished that Greedy was back to his old self. Instantly his wish was granted, and Greedy changed back into a Smurf.
- In the EMPATH story series retelling, when the Smurfs complained that all they had to eat was potatoes, Tapper brings up the fact that not only had Empath had to eat nothing but nutrient paste in Psychelia, but also that the Israelites under God's protection in the wilderness in The Holy Bible had nothing but manna and water to eat for 40 years.
