Babar's animated debut was ''Babar and Father Christmas'' in 1986, a 25-minute ChristmasEpisode by Creator/{{Nelvana}}. A few years later an AnimatedSeries was produced by Nelvana 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}} 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.

* CivilizedAnimal: The citizens of Celesteville.

to:

* CivilizedAnimal: The citizens of Celesteville. Before then, they behaved as they do in nature.
* CryingWolf: The episode "Monkey Business" is very much centered on this where Zephir keeps sounding the alert for if Rhinos come to the peanut patch. After doing it too many times, no one believes him, and Rhinos do come.


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.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Perhaps unintentional; Pompadour is a tall, [[AmbiguouslyGay effeminate]], KnowNothingKnowItAll elephant in a yellow/golden outfit, and his companion Trubadour is a [[ShorterMeansSmarter short, smart]], [[TheSpeechless mute]] elephant in a blue outfit. [[Franchise/StarWars Now replace "elephant" with "droid"...]]
** Considering the characters were created back in the 1930's, and Babar's never been all that big in the US, we may safely assume it was accidental.
*** However, these two specific characters were created specifically for the TV show in 1989, and it's safe to think that ''Franchise/StarWars'' was big in Canada and France. Nelvana animated the Boba Fett segment of ''Film/TheStarWarsHolidaySpecial'' and the ''Droids'' and ''Ewoks'' animated series to boot.

* NoAntagonist: The book ''Babar the King'', which is about the construction of Celesteville, has no antagonist (and not much of a conflict) at all; neither the hunter nor the rhinos make an appearance. The closest it ever gets to an antagonist is Misfortune, the personification of Babar's own misfortunes who comes in for a metaphorical conflict in a two page NightmareSequence towards the very end.

** The book ''Babar and Father Christmas'' also lacks an antagonist, focusing on Babar's ordeals to find Father Christmas so that he can deliver toys to the elephant children. The AnimatedAdaptation adds Rataxes to the story, trying to foil Babar's plan so that he can get the toys for himself.
