Win a Babar Classic Series DVD Twofer!

Babar: Best Friends Forever DVD Babar: School Days DVD

It’s a pair of releases from Entertainment One with everyone’s favorite elephant-that-walks-on-two-legs, Babar. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:

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 (over 12 million sold worldwide, and more than 1000 titles in print) and several animated series. This Fall, the unforgettable, family favorite, BABAR: THE CLASSIC SERIES, comes to rich life with the first releases in the eOne DVD series. Hailing from the acclaimed, award-winning HBO Family series which ran from 1989-91, these wonderfully animated stories – perfect for the whole family – follow Babar, his family and friends undertaking many challenges and adventures. The series also teaches 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!”


Featuring four episodes that focus on the bonds Babar shares with his pals and family, in each of the adventures on BEST FRIENDS FOREVER, the Elephant King discovers important lessons on love, friendship, teamwork and understanding. In “City Ways”, Babar, alone and confused in the big city, is befriended by the Old Lady who teaches him how to fit into the human world; in “Between Friends”, Babar remembers about the time his future wife Celeste and his friend Zephir had an accident and ended up in court; Cornelius and Pompadour have a major disagreement and vow to never speak again (although the most certainly do!) in “Friendly Agreement” and in “An Elephant’s Best Friend”, Babar excitedly finds a pet warthog in the jungle, but reluctantly returns it when he learns it belongs to Lady Rataxes.


Babar The Classic Series: School Days features four episodes about Babar’s own school day adventures as well as those of his friends and family. In each tale Babar learns important lessons on acceptance, honesty and patience. In “School Days”, Babar reminisces about his early education, when he and his friends were picked on by the school bullies because they all looked “different”; however, he soon realizes everyone should be proud of themselves because differences are what makes everyone unique and special; “Kings of the Castle” in which Babar and the rhino lord, Rataxes, are convinced to trade places for the day and they learn it isn’t easy to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes; “Every Basket Has a Silver Lining”, in which Babar’s son Pom, a towel boy on the basketball team learns a valuable lesson about not lying about his playing status; and, “Peer Pressure”, in which King Babar recalls having to make a tough decision between loyalty to friendship and loyalty to the law.
