I just love when my old favorite cartoons come back and are released to DVD so that my kids can enjoy them; and Babar is one of those classics that I feel good letting them watch because it is clean, wholesome, and has great morals.
Have you noticed the big trend these days with our old cartoon favorites coming back into syndication? I have watched a few of them with my kids and wonder "what in the world did I like about this?!" Well, with the new DVD release of Babar: The Classic Series: The Complete First Series, I am happy to say that not only did I enjoy watching it with my 3 kids, but also I felt good letting them view it! No adult-referenced jokes, not hitting or fighting, no sexual references...just good clean simple stories.
Babar: The Classic Series: The Complete First Season DVD is not a recreation, but a re-release of the original 13 episodes that debuted on HBO back in the...hmmm, not really sure I want to date myself that much :) I appreciated that the stories were perfect for my 2, 4, and 5 year olds and kept their attention the entire time. The lovable characters and story lines are easy to follow and just make you want to watch all the episodes back-to-back.
