I remember Babar from my childhood so I got excited when I was offered the chance to let my children watch the new digitally restored and remastered DVD set of Babar: The Classic Series: The Complete First Season. All four of my kids love to watch it! There aren't many movies that keep the attention of my youngest, but she does like to sit and watch Babar. She has even pointed at the TV and said "Babar", which was her way of asking if she could watch Babar. My three year old often watches it during quiet time. He will lay there and quietly watch as many shows as possible before he finally dozes off.
The complete first season comes on two discs with a total of thirteen episodes. It has a total running time of 293 minutes (4 hours, 53 minutes). The inside cover tells the name of each episode along with a little information about each one. You can watch this in English or you can choose the French or Spanish language option.
First appearing in Histoire de Babar, Jean de Brunhoff’s 1931 storybook classic based on a tale that his wife Cecile had invented for their children, Babar the Elephant has, for 80 years, captivated millions around the globe. The story of the little elephant who leaves the jungle, visits a big city and returns to bring the benefits of civilization to his fellow elephants has been captured in a multitude of best-selling books (over 12 million sold worldwide, and more than 1000 titles in print) and several animated series, including “Classic Babar” which currently airs on NBC, Telemundo and Ion, as well as a new hit series, “Babar & the Adventures of Badou”, which airs daily on Disney Junior.
This June, Entertainment One invites families to discover the magical world of de Brunhoff’s elephant king with the debut DVD release of BABAR: THE CLASSIC SERIES: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON. Hailing from the acclaimed, award-winning HBO Family series, these wonderfully animated stories – 13 episodes in all perfect for the whole family and never before available together as a complete season – follow Babar, his family and friends undertaking many challenges and adventures, all while teaching the most valuable lesson of all: despite life's challenges, great things are possible if one never gets discouraged. As Babar says, “Long live happiness!”
