Watch Babar

Babar is an animated cartoon created for the viewing purpose of young adolescences and younger children. The series was produced in Canada, and is based on the works of author Jean de Brunhoff's Babar books, which later were continued by Jean's son Laurent de Brunhoff. Babar, the main character is an elephant, but not just any old elephant. Babar is king of the elephants!

The series is mainly built around Babar himself, his royal family and friends, and the many adventures that have taken place throughout his life. The king recounts all of these storied adventures to his children. It all started when he was orphaned and taken in to live with Madame (The Old Lady) in Paris. She taught Babar a number of things especially in regards to city life and the ways of the world. As Babar inevitably got older he returned to the jungle, when the other members of his homeland caught wind of how much he had learned, and how bright he was they made him king.

Other important characters throughout the series include, Celeste, Babar's wife and ruling queen of "Celesteville", appropriately named after her of course. Also their four children, among them are the triplets, Pom, Flora, and Alexander. Joining them not far behind is Isabelle, who though may be the youngest, seems to follow in her Father's footsteps the most. All the children take to adventure along with Babar, and Celeste in later episodes of the series. Arthur, the prankster of the royal family is Celeste's brother, and can always be counted on to pull a stunt or two. Many friends are introduced to the series as well, like Zephir a monkey who is very close with the family.

A reoccurring theme is that of the challenges that may come forth during Babar's adventures, but his ability to rise to the occasion, even in the face of his most difficult tasks. He also always finds a positive outlook for every negative situation. Babar worldwide is one of the most popular kid friendly cartoon characters, and remains a role model for young children everywhere.
