Will contemporary kids embrace the gentle exploits of Jean de Brunhoff's creation Babar the Elephant as interpreted in this HBO series which aired between 1989 and 1991? It's hard to say. As choices in children's programming have expanded, these moralistic stories told in a simple and straightforward animation style certainly have a pleasing nostalgia factor. I'd like to think that the sweetness and innocence of Babar and his cadre of pals will still have an appeal to modern audiences, but some kids have become jaded by the various alternatives that have flooded the entertainment market. Does Babar lack a certain visual sophistication? Perhaps. But over eighty years of success in books and on television seem to indicate an enduring attraction to this story. Babar, for those unfamiliar with the optimistic pachyderm, is a curious soul who after having traveled to the city brings lessons about civilization to his small tribe of family and friends. There are plenty of adventures and challenges in the stories, but with unwavering fortitude and a positive attitude--all things are possible.

The Classic Series on DVD brings four episodes of the show together under some sort of thematic banner. The programs themselves have been digitally restored and remastered, and each DVD runs (with all four episodes) around the ninety minute mark. Also included is a small, and relatively unremarkable, 8 page coloring book--but hey, it's free! I'm not a big fan of TV shows releasing random episodes as opposed to full seasons, but at least they tried to pair titles according to a central message.

I liked the dvd but my 2 1/2 year old was not too interested, maybe when he's a little older. The movie itself is nice. Kinda on the older version but a good kind movie child appropriate.
