Putt-Putt Joins the Circus
Baby Jambo is an elephant and one of the six missing baby animals. He is the son of Mama Mombassa, the Cartown Zoo's main elephant. Baby Jambo is the only baby animal in Putt-Putt Saves the Zoo who gets lost in the same section of the zoo where he lives (the Grasslands). He's also the only baby animal who is rescued from another animal (Giant Scary Mouse). His name is Swahili for "Hello."
Baby Jambo is a fat male baby elephant. Like most elephants, his skin is grey and tough but in the overview closing shot, his skin is silver and his eyes are smaller like dots. Baby Jambo usually stands on his front legs but in a close-up shot of him, he stands on his hind legs. The storyboard sketches also show him standing on his hind legs. A plate at the Gift Cart resembles that the elephant actually looks like him. After joining the circus, he wears a traditional red beret and blue bow tie.
Putt-Putt Saves the ZooEdit
Just before the opening of the Cartown Zoo, Baby Jambo was wandering the Grasslands when a mouse (called a "giant scary mousey" by him) scared him into a corner. When Putt-Putt finds him, he asks for help. Putt-Putt agrees and returns with Cheese Squigglies to feed the mouse. The mouse leaves after he has eaten the whole bag. Baby Jambo thanks Putt-Putt and returns home to his mother.
If Baby Jambo is not the last baby animal to be saved, Putt-Putt can visit him and his mother during the gameplay.
Baby Jambo is one of the baby animals in the closing overview shot of the Cartown Zoo.
Putt-Putt Joins the CircusEdit
Some time later, Mama Mombassa and Baby Jambo, left the Cartown Zoo and joined B.J. Sweeney's Big Top Circus for the summer. During their tour of Apple Valley, they happen to reunite with Putt-Putt during his time helping B.J. Sweeney get the circus up and running. Baby Jambo explains that he is no longer a "scaredy-elephant" and has developed a talent for painting. He offers to paint Putt-Putt different colors if he so desires.
