The latest effort between Nelvana Studios and TeamTO will make its debut November 22nd, as Babar and the Adventures of Badou hits televisions. The CG toon, already on France’s TF1, will join YTV’s Playtime block that Monday at 11am, bringing the classic Babar books back to the forefront of animation. Those of you looking for an even earlier peek can find the mighty elephant on his own float during Toronto’s 106th annual Santa Claus Parade November 21st. YTV will air a repeat broadcast of the Parade on December 5 at 12p.
Created by Jean and Laurent de Brunhoff, Babar and the universe of characters will now roam in full 3D in the new toon that stars Badou, Babar’s grandson.
Amongst the characters in the toon, Babar and the Adventures of Badou will showcase Babar, Isabelle, Pom, Zephir, Celeste, Lord Rataxes and Lady Rataxes.
