Hereby nominated for Best Answer. (Though these days you can't be certain. There's at least one Japanese pop star who is a computer animation. I don't know whether they're also synthesizing her voice.)
Isn't Biebar a cartoon elephant?
That'd be Babar. L

Boy, but I believe his handlers are deliberately giving him a somewhat androgynous style so he's nonthreatening, and thus more attractive, to teen girls.(I don't dislike him any more than I do any other manufactured celebrity. He's a product. He's a good example of what he is. I'm emphatically not the target audience.)
