-->'''Elizabeth:''' Haha, so the elephant express will not go through! Nochapter in the history books for good King Babar! You lose!\\

'''Basil:''' Loosely translated it means: "You'll live forever in the memory of every creature in the jungle as the pigheaded barbarian who cheated them out of their railway!"

* TheMovie: More or less a remake of cartoon series though.
* NeverSayDie: ZigZagged. In early episodes death is discussed and even shown, but after the construction of Celesteville things have become so safe that the worst thing an assassin can be said to have planned for Babar is kidnapping.

Babar's animated debut was ''Babar and Father Christmas'' in 1986, a 25-minute ChristmasEpisode by Creator/AtkinsonFilmArts. A few years later an AnimatedSeries was produced by Creator/{{Nelvana}}[[note]]who have since assumed distribution rights to the non-Nelvana Christmas special[[/note]] that originally aired between 1989 and 1991 and in 2000, airing on the Creator/{{CBC}} and then Creator/{{Global}} in Canada, and on Creator/{{HBO}} and later Creator/{{qubo}} in the US. The series was broadcast in 30 languages in over 150 countries, making it one of the largest distributed animated shows up to that point. There have also been two movies, ''Babar: The Movie'' in 1989 and ''Babar: King of the Elephants'' in 1999, but both came and went at the box office with little fanfare.

Added DiffLines:

* FurryReminder: This series makes it clear that despite being civilized, the animals still have their instincts. For example, each year the Rhinos run on all fours and embark on "Rhino Rampage", because it's in their blood.
