Add Full Plot
Once upon a time (1930, to be exact) French artist-writer Jean de Brunhoff wrote his first story about Babar the Elephant for the amusement of his two young sons. Tonight, three of the Babar books which have delighted millions of French and American youngsters over the years will come to life in an animated NBC color special. Peter Ustinov will narrate the program, which has been produced by Lee Mendelson and animated by Bill Melelndez, the team responsible for the immensely popular "Charlie Brown" TV specials. Don't forget "Babar". He wouldn't forget you.
