Babar is a shopaholic? After his mother is murdered and he is chased by the hunter who did, his first desire is some sharp looking threads? And when Celeste and Arthur visit him for the first time in the city, what does he do? Buy them clothes of course! And when he returns with Celeste and Arthur to the jungle in his swanky new car(nice image there; Celeste and Arthur's mothers have to run behind the car with their trunks held up to avoid the belching smoke), what does he do when told he is the new elephant king? Why, tell everyone he and Celeste are getting married and will require (wait for it) clothes! Such adventure.
