We’re already feeling pretty celebratory about elephants today, now that we’ve learned that the WWF is saving their lives by making them scared of imaginary bees. So we’re really digging this video of the most adorable elephant family reunion ever.

These guys are just so human! You know, aside from having four legs and giant ears and trunks and weighing five tons. The little kid recognizing dad and running excitedly towards him, the tender trunk touch — it’s straight out of some sweet family friendly sitcom. But, you know, reenacted by wild animals that could crush you.

Still, I’d watch that show. The Elephant Family, anyone? Everybody Loves Bull Elephant? Fresh Prince of Elephant National Park, South Africa?
