By K. Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on August 30, 2011
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.

This is the classic Babar character, who is more regal (and much more enjoyable) than the most recent television version. If you grew up with Babar, these stories warm the heart and harken back to simpler times. Babar the elephant still wears a crown, travels by train, and brings his diplomatic style to the screen even as he confronts his nemesis Lord Rataxes.

There is a classic feel to the animation along with well thought out storylines and character development. Entertaining with a message. Through vignettes that take a look at life through the vantage point of an elephant family, it explore and resolves human issues. Wholesome, simple and educational. Stories teach important lessons, such as dealing with peer pressure. Each episode focuses on one common problem, being new to a school and bullies, problem-solving, sibling rivalry and peer pressure. Teaches positive ways to handle each situation.

Here's what our youth critics had to say: "I like the elephant, it was funny." It engages the kids and they laughed at the elephants. The old-fashioned style of it was fun to watch, but didn't make them ask to see it again. The kids really like the baby elephants and talked about how they should better treat one another.

It has many valuable stories of moral character and doing what it right rather than what makes you feel good.
