Orphaned as a young elephant, Babar flees the forest and runs all the way to the city of Paris where he is taken in by the generous Old Lady who teaches him the ways of the fashionable Parisian, buying him clothing, teaching him French, and indulging in the finest pastries and a shiny red car! The excitement evolves when his friends from the forest, his cousin Arthur and the lovely Celeste, come to the city to find him and they all get to experience the differing cultures of city and forest life!
