Grouchy Smurf


Grouchy Smurf appears rather late during the game, at around level 15. Papa Smurf again gives the task to search the forest and after that is completed Grouchy is found and returns to the village. To get Grouchy Smurf it is important to regularly do Papa’s quests, especially the ones given right after a new level has been reached, otherwise he will not give the order to search for Grouchy until all of his previous tasks, which should have been done before he asks to find Grouchy, have been completed.

Grouchy Smurf gives 100 XP per day; he is ready to give the bonus XP as soon as a thundercloud appears above his head, taping him then instantly gives the XP.

Like Jokey Smurf, Grouchy does not have his own mushroom house and he is not stationary, he walks around the village with the other Smurfs.

When a new level is reached, Grouchy always has some tasks of his own, which, like Papa Smurf’s quest, give extra XP once completed. Unlike Papa, however, Grouchy runs out of tasks after a while and does not give new quests until the next level is reached. A yellow “!” above his head indicates that Grouchy has a task that needs to be completed.

Missing Grouchy after Christmas Quest:

This issue has been fixed for iOS users with the update That probably means it will be fixed for Android users with the next update as well.

    How do I make grouchy cross his arms?

  2. Chuck says:

    I'm having a grouchy problem too! He wants me to collect a gift from Jokey. I have done this twice over the past two days and still no task completion, thoughts?

  3. yip says:

    where i can find Grouchy and make grouchy cross arms 2 times?

  4. Amanda says:

    So like many others I am stuck on the 30 boxes of tulips. I have only 6 flower boxes. I used the suggestion on deleting crop land to be able to place more flower boxes….. Well I deleted 9 crop lands and I can’t place any more flower boxes…. Says I need more smurfs….. So now I’ve lost crop land and still can’t complete the quest……

    • Sassete says:

      pu need to plant al 30 at the same time so you need to delete more land plots and be sure that you delete them so you dont store the plots

  5. Jenben1946 says:

    I totally agree. Who has room for 30 flower boxes anyway. I don’t want to have to delete plots land. Think this is the worst task ever. Have had problem giving and receiving gifts since level 5 and now on level 35 so flowers never get watered by friends! Beeline don’t seem able to fix this bug.

    • Onontio says:

      The don't want to fix it. I have the same problem and have written twice to them and they give the same lame response, which is not helpful and does not work. I never get gifts or watering from friends even though I can do it for them. The game has been updated several times since I first noticed this and still no fix. Walk away from this game before you spend money on it. It used to be fun but tasks like this one force you to completely change your village and the game is not really supported by Beeline. They don't care.

  6. Mickey says:

    I have planted many tulips but it does not work. I have not been disturbing the clock. Please help me!!!!

  7. cotodon says:

    Grouchy wants me to harvest 30 boxes of tulips so he can throw pollen in someone’s face. I have been trying to complete this task for a couple of weeks and I really think that I have harvested over 30 boxes of each of the 3 types of tulips and nothing has happened. Any thoughts or suggestions?

  8. Maria says:

    Grouchy has asked to plant 30 tulips in the boxes I know I have but am still unable to complete the quest? What am I to do?

  9. Poet says:

    Did you try harvesting all 30 tulips AT the SAME time?

  10. Miranda says:

    Grouchy keeps telling me to plant 30 tulip boxes. I’ve done this in batches of 7 (that’s all the boxes I have) more than once. It never works! I think I’ve grown 100 tulip boxes! How do I beat this challenge?

    • Miranda says:

      Sorry. Couldn’t get the posts to load until AFTER I posted a question. Seems many people have the same issue with multiple answers. Seems unfair that I have to delete land plots just so I can get 23 more flower boxes. And why doesn’t Beeline say that to us? Stupid.

      • Poet says:

        It's not really unfair as it has been said at the very beginning, one farm plot will take up 1 smurf. Naturally, 1 flower box will also take up the count of 1 smurf, so you can't have both.

        • jla says:

          actually there's nothing natural about it. if i want to have a flower box and a garden on my property I have to decide which to attend to. naturally i can't attend to both at the same time but i don't have to til under my garden every time i want to water my flowers.

        • Onontio says:

          They don't explain it at the outset of the quest that the tulips have to be harvested at the same time. Stupid, a waste of resources, and one more strike against Beeline and this game, which are becoming annoying as time goes on.

    • Poet says:

      You need to harvest all 30 at the same time.

  11. Ashley says:

    Hi, I’m on level 38 and grouchy wants me to havest tulips. 30 boxes worth. I’ve done that twice now and it’s nof saying I completed it. I only have 5 boxes and I’ve been planting the 8 hr tulips. Is there a trick to it?? Help please :)

  12. Felicia Ho says:

    I have tried everything for the tulips quest !!! Nothing seems to happen. Can someone please tell Beeline abt this ? So sick and tired of this silly bug !!!

  13. says:

    OK, so if I plow under good farmland just so I can get 30 flower boxes and satisfy Grouchy, is the payoff worth it? If all that's going to happen is that he'll say "I remember now that I hate flowers" or some such idiocy, then why should I bother?

  14. April says:

    Grouchy has to plant 40 crops of artichokes. I’ve done that (plant and delete again) but the quest won’t get solved. What schould I do???

  15. Delger says:

    I have a problem with a quest from grouchy smurf. He wants me to plant 30 boxes of tulips (“I don’t know who that is but maybe we can throw pollen in his eyes so he’ll get disoriented”)

    I harvested way over 30 boxes of tulips buy the quest still isn’t complete, could someone please tell me what to do?

    Thanks in advance!

  22. Sasongko says:

    There’s A Quest from Grouchy Smurf. to Harvest Some Tulips. ( Harvest 30 Boxes tulips)

    I Have 12 Boxes, and i’ve tried to harvest 3 types of Tulips (Pink, Red and Blue Tulips) for 3 times Each. (it should be 36 boxes for each colour of Tulips). but the Grouchy quests still exist.

    and also in the Islands, I already collected 2 from 4 pieces from Message in The Bottle Quest, but I have 4 times (since the last totem) finished the MiTB quest and only Beach Chair, Flag, Beach Umbrella and swinging chair.

    • Brainy says:

  23. Patsimaria says:

  24. *J.Man* says:

    Grouchy has given me a quest to harvest 30 flower boxes of tulips so the pollen can be used to throw in gargamels eyes to disorientate him… I’ve been growing and harvesting all 3 different types of tulips for a week now and grouchy is still stuck on this quest… Please help!

  25. Beth says:

  26. Jo says:

    • Brainy says:

  28. Bianca says:

    Hey guys, I just updated to the new version and I’m on level 34. Grouchy has amnesia and wants me to harvest 30 boxes of tulips. I’ve harvested about 40 now and he’s not satisfied :( Any tips?? Thanks!!

  29. Suzan says:

    I’m level 37 and grouchy wants me to harvest 30 boxes of tulips. I tried all 3 colours of tulips, but still nothing, what do I do wrong?


  30. DinaFelice says:

    Grouchy says "Harvest some tulips". At the bottom of that note, it clarifies that I should "Harvest 30 boxes of tulips." Well, I have planted and harvested 50 boxes of pink tulips (the 8-hour ones) so far, and no change. Any thoughts? Should I be harvesting some other color of tulips? Or is this an issue that ties in with the constant crashing of the last few days?

  31. Priscilla says:

    I'm on level 37. Grouchy ask me to collect a gift from jokey.
    I had collected 3 timrs, waiting for 3 days but still cant completed the quest.
    What should i do then??
    Please help :'(

    • Brainy says:

      One of the moderator had the same problem. He had to find Marco first, then collect from jokey.

    • -MixPad- says:

      If I recall that quest, my mum got it, It says to get a gift from jokey or a friend ?? I sent her a gift and it cleared the quest for her. Unless its another quest, hope this helps.

  32. Vedant says:

    I got a quest from Grouchy smurf to plant 40 crops of Artichokes. I planted 21 crops the first day and 19 the second but I didn’t complete the quest. Please help!!!

  33. -MixPad- says:

    Hello, i've noticed a few people, including myself, are having trouble with the new grouchy smurf quest of planting 30 boxes of tulips (level 36). Does anyone know which type of tulips ? 8 hr, 12hr or 18 hr ?

  35. hardy72 says:

    I need to know how to complete Grouchy's quest of harvesting 30 tulips! I have harvested 40 already and when that didn't work, I planted 30 and still nothing! Can someone please give me some insight???

  36. Julie says:

    I am also having the problem with grouchy's quest with harvesting 30 tulips!!! I have harvested 40 and still nothing and I even tried just planting 30 of them and neither one worked! Anyone else have this problem or does anyone know how to fix it???

  37. Sarah says:

    I have planted AND harvested 45 pink tulips now and is hasn't worked. There must be a certain colour he wants. Any ideas?

  38. Summergirl1964 says:

    I am having trouble with the latest grouchy quest…harvest 30 tulip boxes. I have harvested 40 tulip boxes and it still not clearing the quest or awarding the XP for finishing the quest??? Also, for some reason, I can't see my friend's villages, even though I have logged on and am connected through game center? Is it another glitch happening with the site??

  39. KEp says:

    Grouchy smurf is waiting to collect a gift from jokey smurf. Two gifts have been collected…. What's up with that.. Also smurfette has been stuck on harvesting 20 boxes of flowers. I have harvested 80 and nothing happens…

  40. annj7sdn says:

    Anyone on the new grouchy quest to harvest 30 boxes of tulips, surely there is an easier way it will take forever having to wait all that time?

    • Poet says:

      sadly no…

      • gracelcg says:

        Beeline say:
        •Place one flower box & plant one tulip. Wait for the tulip to finish growing. Harvest the Tulip and then remove it. Replant a new tulip & repeat the process until you have done it 30 times.

    • clarksark says:

      I have the same problem have done the quest 5 times and nothing. Deleted the tulips and tried new color, still nothing!

    • Greta says:

      I only have 8 flower boxes so I can't harvest 30 at the same time. When it comes to other cros you can do multiple harvests, why not the tulips? I have personally harvested over 60 boxes of tulips since this started and all the colors to no avail.

      • Dreamy_Smurf says:

        It's still a glitch that you can't complete it without having 30 flower boxes. Delete some gardens and buy flower boxes.

  42. ali says:

    Had to restart game and am at level 18 and no grouchy how can I fix that also no clumsy or able to buy vanity smurf and no lone smurf or that other Marco smurf a lot I can’t do like before what can I do to fix that???????

    • Sassete says:

      You should get grouchy from question from papa smurf but he should get to you much earlier. you dont write if you play on android or ios but you cant buy vanity if you play on android, lone smurf was smurfette for a limited time around haloween she is now back as her self again. Marco smurf should appear in your village at lv 22

  49. JMB says:

    Grouchy asks me to "come back at night" to calm down Scaredy Smurf. I've played at all hours of the day. What do I do?

    • Smurfette says:

      You have to turn on the day & night mode and then tap on him when it is dark, i.e. night in your village. You can turn it on by setting the effects to on in the options menu

    • Allicia says:

      You just need to find scary once a night, not much to actually do with grouchy. Tap on him when he is standing scared somewhere and you will get xp. You cannot help scardy in the daytime or when he is walking around.
