User Reviews

One of the loveliest animated TV series of all time
2 January 2008 | by (The world of artists) – See all my reviews

"Babar" is one of the sweetest and most innocent childish TV shows ever made. It is one of many animated TV shows I grew up with. Those stories with that affectionate elephant family are something I always found heartwarming. I used to watch this many times in the good old days.

"Babar" also happens to be very educative and moral, teaching valuable lessons for children, as well as good morals and values.

But times have changed very much. This generation doesn't have shows like this anymore. Instead, children of nowadays watch mostly crappy cartoons with violence, crappy humor, too much noise, dreadful artwork and absolutely no interest, not to mention that they don't teach anything worthy or useful for children.

Overall, "Babar" is one of the best "babyish" animated TV shows.
