I watch this show with my 5-year-old daughter and we both love it. The CG animation is beautiful-- very colorful and clear. So, to start, it is interesting visually. The stories have the right amount of adventure, humor and lessons. It is nice to see grandparents (in this case, King Babar) portrayed as wise yet "cool." He is not bumbling or stupid or out of it. Babar is clearly friends with his grandson Badou and with Badou's friends. The monkey is particularly funny and the porcupine also is funny. The teacher, Miss Stritch, is one of my own favorite characters. She's loving, a bit ditzy, but always manages to impart a useful lesson.
It's one of the few children's TV shows that I can actually sit through and enjoy. So many are downright boring or stupid. I highly recommend this!
