Editorial Reviews

When Babar grows up, he's crowned king of the elephants, marries Celeste and has kids. One of the greatest lessons he learns is that despite life's challenges, great things are always possible. Beloved series filled with learning lessons, based on Jean de Brunhoff's book series

Format:DVD
Last year, several Babar DVDs were released that contained random episodes from the run of the show. If you bought these smaller offerings, you may experience an overlap in a couple of episodes as now the Complete Season One is being presented in its entirety.

Season One consists of thirteen digitally restored and remastered episodes as follows:

(1) Babar's First Step, (2) City Ways, (3) Babar Returns, (4) The City Of Elephants, (5) Babar's Triumph, (6) Babar's Choice, (7) Race to the Moon, (8) No Place Like Home, (9) An Elephant's Best Friend, (10) The Show Must Go On, (11) To Duet or Not to Duet, (12) The Missing Crown Affair, and (13) The Phantom.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adore Babar February 18, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I watched this as a kid, and this DVD took me right back to my childhood. I noticed no obvious glitches or video errors on the copy I received. Also still entertaining for me as an adult, but I bought it for my daughter.

4.0 out of 5 stars We want more! October 21, 2013

This show was so sweet and wonderful and we were so grateful to be able to watch it again. I would give it a five but there are no special features and I believe at least a couple of the eps. are out of order.

But I still recommend it highly to children of all ages, and eagerly await the release of the rest of series :)

This brought back so many memories! Even the theme song made me weepy. It's perfect for children and grandchildren and even the lucky folks who get to watch with them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Character to model November 7, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It is a great story that has a lot of character education in it. My son loves to imitate the elephant's call at the same time in the movie.
