To escape his mother's fate, newly orphaned elephant Babar flees the jungle for the big city. His presence there creates a hullabaloo till a kindhearted, elderly woman bedecks him in fancy clothes and schools him on the finer points of human culture. But a crisis summons the gentrified Babar back to his origins, where a whole new set of woes awaits him: sickness, fires and a dustup with the neighboring rhinos.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Babar: King of the Elephants is a terrific introduction to this classic pachyderm from children's books. The one cause for concern is a scene early in the film where Babar's mother is shot and killed by a rifle-toting poacher. Beyond this scene though, the story teaches lessons through the examples of the characters on kindness, consideration, respect, and apologizing for one's mistakes. For parents who grew up with Babar books and kids experiencing Babar for the very first time, this movie is a positive experience to share.
