Trivia

Initially viewers who hadn't read the original Babar books but had watched the TV series assumed that Babar's oldest son, Pom, was named after Babar's minister of protocol, Pompadour. Actually, Pom's name origin is unknown (in French the name "Pom" is short for "Pomme", or in English, "Apple", and it used to be a fairly common boy's name), and he was originally written as a character (one of Babar's triplets) in the books, whereas Pompadour was designed specifically as a character in the TV series and earlier 1989 film adaptation and never appeared in the original books.

It's good, but it could be better.
7 June 2019 | by afonsobritofalvesSee all my reviews

Babar is just one of the most iconic, important, and most remembered cartoon characters of the '80s, but in spite of everything, I think his series is not as good as it looks or is reenactment, personally I find the series a little drier for the children's public (since this is your target audience). But despite that, I think it's a good series and I recommend it a lot.
