My favorite movie when i was younger
11 April 2004 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I'm 16 now, and was just thinking of things i liked when i was little.

Right away i remembered babar! he was my favorite cartoon next to my little ponies.lol:). I had to look up this movie because i was curious. then i saw the picture of the movie and remembered it! so weird. anyway, i liked this movie so much that after 12 years, i still remember scenes from it! isn't that crazy? it is a very good and cute movie. i highly recommend it for 4-8 year olds. it is hard to find though; i haven't seen it in any video stores since i was little. maybe you can only buy it now?? don't know.
