Babar: The Movie

After Babar's children take part in the Cellesteville's annual Victory Parade, Babar tells his children the story of how the parade got its name. When he was a boy, on one of his first days as King, his friend Celleste ran into the Palace saying Rataxes, King of the Rhinos, was attacking villages and kidnapping elephants. When Babar's army gets bogged down in bureaucratic nonesense, Babar learns one of the important lessons about being King--if you want something done, sometimes you have to do it yourself.
