Smooth Yoda refers to photoshops of the character Yoda from the Star Wars films in which he is edited such that his wrinkles are removed. After appearing on Tumblr in late 2017, the characters saw further use on social media in the summer of 2018.
On November 30th, 2017, Tumblr user dan-mcneely posted a photoshopped image macro of Yoda photoshopped such that the character was smooth. The post gained over 14,000 notes (shown below, left). User 5u5 posted a separate "Smooth Yoda" picture that day, gaining over 66,000 notes (shown below, right).
In reblogs of these posts, Tumblr users created additional "Smooth Yodas" (examples shown below).
