First watched : Uncertain
From Monday 29 September 1969 The Magic Roundabout was rested for a while and replaced by Babar , another French import narrated by Eric Thompson although that was the limit of his involvement. The scripts were written by Peggy Miller.
The lovable elephant originally appeared in French childrens' books by Jean de Brunhof in 1931 He had already been the subject of two Bollywood films by the time this series was made.
There's very little on the net about this series. It's only listed at the bottom of Babar's wikipedia page and most references are to a French/Canadian cartoon series which was shown on the BBC in 1989.
I remember little more than the name.
