Audience Reviews for Babar - The Movie

It was an enjoyable movie when I was a kid, but paying attention to it now it's rather violent for kids. But hey, i also has good morals to teach the kids as well ;) I still enjoy the movie. A good family movie.

I was quite surprised that one of my early childhood favorite movies was not only tolerable but also still fun to watch. I got a kick out of the songs again and it really brought back some memories. (First viewing - Childhood)
