Babar king of the elephants
Babar: King of the Elephants is a 1999 animated film made by Nelvana Limited, Homemade Films, and TMO-Loonland and released in theaters in Canada and the U.S. by Alliance Communications and later on home video by HBO Home Video. Based on Jean de Brunhoff's book series, it is the second Babar film, following Babar: The Movie.
Babar's mother is killed by hunters, forcing him to flee to a nearby city. He is taken in by an older woman who raises him as if he is human. His elephant friends later find him, although they had presumed him dead. Babar returns with them to the forest, bringing human culture with him. Although Babar is keen for elephants to adopt more human customs, this is innately problematic.
