First appearing in Histoire de Babar, Jean de Brunhoff’s 1931 storybook classic based on a tale that his wife Cecile had invented for their children, Babar the Elephant has, for 80 years, captivated millions around the globe. The story of the little elephant who leaves the jungle, visits a big city and returns to bring the benefits of civilization to his fellow elephants has been captured in a multitude of best-selling books (tens of million sold worldwide, and more than 1000 titles in print), motion pictures and animated series, including “Classic Babar,” which currently airs on Qubo, as well as a new hit series, “Babar and the Adventures of Badou,” which airs on Disney Junior.
This June, Entertainment One invites families to discover the magical world of de Brunhoff’s elephant king with the debut DVD release of BABAR: THE CLASSIC SERIES: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON. Originally seen on HBO, these wonderfully animated stories – 13 episodes in all, perfect for the whole family and never before available together as a complete season – follow Babar, his family and friends undertaking many challenges and adventures, all while teaching the most valuable lesson of all: despite life's challenges, great things are possible if one never gets discouraged. As Babar says, “Long live happiness!”

Does you family love Babar, the loveable elephant? If so, then you will love this new DVD series, containing the complete first season of the classic series, Babar. I was first introduced to Babar as a child, and am thrilled to be able to share this wonderful series with my daughters. Each adventures teaches them valuable lessons that will help guide them in life, especially not giving up and being happy. I received this DVD last week, and over the course of 4 days, watched each of the animated cartoons with Savannah. By the last episode, she turned to me and said, "Mama, be happy!" She learned about the importance of happiness as they watched these entertaining short episodes. I couldn't believe it -- this was her first sentence!! And, from that day onward, she tells everyone she sees to "be happy!"
I am so glad I had the opportunity to review this wonderful series, that parents can enjoy with their children. And, when my daughter asks about her first sentence down the road, I can tell her she said it after watching Babar with me. We can't wait for future Babar DVD releases, and will add this DVD to our growing Babar collection.
You can pick up this newly released DVD at Amazon right now, for only $14.99.
