** The hunter, big time. In the books, he was merely an ordinary game hunter who killed Babar's mother simply because he noticed her passing by and disappeared from the story completely after failing to do the same to Babar. The series on the other hand made him the BigBad of the FiveEpisodePilot, being there with the intent of poaching Babar's ''entire herd'' from the beginning, with Babar's mother merely being his ''first'' victim. In fact, his threat is largely the reason Babar returns to the jungle, and despite the knowledge about humans that he and his friends acquired from the city that they use against the hunter, it still takes a great deal of effort to drive him out...only for him to return two episodes later, recovered his shock of the discovery of talking civilized elephants, and prepared to deal with them accordingly (i.e. more mooks, more weapons and guards protecting his camp.) He's only defeated for good by an enormous forest fire that [[HoistByHisOwnPetard he started in the first place.]]

* CassandraTruth: When the hunter returns to the jungle in ''Babar's Triumph'', Rataxes and the other animal leaders brush off Babar's warnings about how dangerous the hunter is and refuse to join forces to stop him. It isn't until Rhinoland (then merely a cluster or rural grasshuts) is attacked by the hunter and his men ,with all the rhinos captured, that the other animals realize who they are dealing with.

* TheKingdom: A kingdom of elephants, no less.

* HonorableElephant: The elephants live in TheKingdom with all sorts of positive values. Babar is a good and responsible king and a loving father, Celeste is a caring wife and mother, Cornelius is a wise advisor, and even the NervousWreck Pompadour is well-intentioned. However, Babar's mother may have been the most honorable elephant of them all. The most her first shooting from the hunter while she was carrying Babar to safety did was injure her slightly. After reaching the herd, instead of running off like hell with them, she drops Babar off with them and then [[HeroicSacrifice charges at the hunter, seizes his gun with her trunk and smashes it, temporarily neutralizing his threat and buying the others more time to escape. Unfortunately, she receives several more blows from the hunter in more vital spots while doing so, effectively killing her.]]

Added DiffLines:

* FeudEpisode: Two of them. The first ''Between Friends'' involves Zephir and Young Celeste crashing into each other with their model car and bike respectively. Each one blames the other and go to court, where Babar (who is filling in as judge) must help them realize that the incident was both their fault as both were equally careless while riding, but more importantly how trivial this incident was. The second was ''Friendly Agreement'', where Cornelius and Pompadour feel they no longer see eye to eye and break ties. It takes a fire in the kitchen that they must work together to put out to bring them back to their senses.

** The giant crocodile from "The Gift" is shown with an overbite like an alligator.



* MisplacedWildlife: The show supposedly takes place in Africa, but in "Babar's Triumph", tigers and bears are mentioned (although not shown) being invited to the Jungle Council, and a toucan and an armadillo were seen. Bears and kangaroos are seen throughout the show as citizens of Celesteville, though they could have come from outside Africa. The Purple Nightshadow from "Witch's Potion" is shown to be a rattlesnake, which are only found in the Americas.
