7 Things to Love About Caillou

Even though this Canadian toddler is the epitome of aggravation with his whiny voice, obnoxious giggle, and incessant pouting, I think we as parents are failing to acknowledge the power that is Caillou. On the surface, the show appears to glorify a spoiled brat and his Ginger sister, but peel back the layers, dear readers, and uncover the invaluable life lessons within…


1. Drugs Are Bad. Constant snacking and a lesson in tie-dying? Someone’s been taking hits from the bong and it’s Caillou’s Grandma. This pothead Granny illustrates the negative influence of drugs through her overzealous narration (CAILLOU WAS FEELING VERY FRUSTRATED! WEEEEE!!!!) and by allowing wild birds to peck at her in the park. Just say no, kids.

_cgmaki2. Accessorizing the Home. Caillou’s house is an acid trip gone wrong (and, I think, to blame for his childhood baldness). With a daily dosage of Caillou, kids are sure to opt for home décor that is both aesthetically pleasing and soothing to the soul. Accessorizing rule of thumb: when in doubt, choose earth tones over a-rainbow-took-a-shit-in-the-playroom tones.


3. Stay in School. Poor Ms. Martin. If she wanted to be a real teacher, she should have taken college a little more seriously. Now she’s stuck working as a glorified babysitter, taking Caillou and crew on nature walks to find pine cones and raccoon crap. She deserves it for wearing overalls after 1985.



4. The Dangers of Child Luring. With creepy neighbor Mr. Hinkle as Exhibit A, young children will learn to recognize the signs of child luring and pedophilia. “No, Mr. Hinkle, we do not want to visit your ‘sister’s farm’ and ‘milk some cows.’” Perv.

5. Affordable Health Care. Mommy rarely loses her shit on her demon spawn; in fact, she’s usually humming to herself or peacefully reading on the couch while her kids play in the street. Caillou teaches children the direct correlation between accessibility to Prozac and successful parenting.

6. Equality. Caillou’s pals hail from wide-ranging backgrounds which acclimates his young audience to different races and religions. And nothin’ screams genuine ethnic diversity like a black kid playing the tuba or a red-headed Jew. I got 99 problems, but Mazel Tov, son.


7. The Importance of Personal Hygiene. Daddy needs a haircut. Caillou needs a wig. Mommy needs to get off of her frumpy ass and make the iron her friend. And Grandpa needs a new diaper; he soiled himself three episodes ago, but Grandma has been too stoned to notice. After witnessing this hot mess of characters, children will be begging to brush their teeth.


If the aforementioned lessons aren’t enough, let us not forget the most beneficial side effect of Caillou: Kids in a TV coma for 25 minutes.

Can’t beat that.

Okay…this makes me hate the show a little less. My son loves the brat and I’m sure my unborn daughter will too. I’ll forever think of a stoned grandma while I suffer through lunch time episodes.

So funny! Why does his mommy never change her outfit?! But my kids are mesmerized by the show. They are frozen in their seats. But the minute it’s over they break out of their trance & continue where they left off trashing the house & beating each other up! Lol

My brother and I have watched Calliou since we were really young. I saw no negative influence. Toddlers will whine anyway, right? It’s YOUR job to be a good parent, not to fix them up on TV hoping they would behave. I guess that’s how watching garbage on TV was born. -_- I guess Calliou was there to teach kids the solution to whining, not to encourage it.

SPONGEBOB, IS THE WORST. DON’T WATCH SPONGEBOB. It encourages talking back, bad words, decreases attention spans, and yeah. Calliou is healthy as it boosts brainpower. Read this article:

I’m a minority of one because I don’t mind my four year old son watching Caillou. He’s been watching for two years (after he gets home from prechool). Yes Caillou is an obnoxious, animated version of the most insipid, incessantly whiny little pr!ck of a child I’ve ever witnessed, but the shows have actually managed to reinforce some valuable life lessons that we wanted our son to learn. My son has learned from Caillou episodes that it’s okay to be afraid, that it’s really fair to share, that it’s not okay to lie, and he’s even learn not to be afraid to play soccer with kids he’s never met before.
I view Caillou as a necessary evil. Also, I’m pretty sure he’s going to grow out of his Caillou fascination within the next year. My six year old daughter outgrew Caillou two years ago, so we’re right on schedule!

After getting my now 12 year old granddaughter through the Caillou years, we now have a 2 year old grandson who loves the little bald-headed brat. As a black woman I resent the noses on the black kids. Come on already, it takes up half of their little faces! My daughter claims that Caillou had cancer, hence the bald head. I’ve never heard it mentioned.

heavensmom 3 years ago

What a BRAT. He’s such a rude,spoiled crybaby. Who is rewarded for his behavior. I have never seen a child’s television show glorify this type of behavior. My daughter will become a big sister shortly and the way Caillou treats Rosie is disgusting. A

In all fairness. Age 3 is very whiny. And children start to develop their personalities. They will start to "push your buttons". I am not a fan of Caillou and totally support the ban.

Katelyn Evans 3 years ago

Until now, I've never had a single complaint about my near-perfect three year old. From sleeping through the night at 6 weeks of, giving up bottles and his crib and moving to his own room – even taking baths and going to bed every night without a single complaint and potty training and reading on his own at 2.

UNTIL CAILLOU. And I'm not joking. This isn't a joke review. This is a serious complaint.

That obnoxious little brat, Caillou, in just two episodes, has my son WHINING "I can't!!" to EVERYTHING he is asked to do. "Time to get out of the tub, sweetie," I tell him. "I caaaaaaannnn't." He whines in this horrible squeal. I had NO IDEA where this abhorrent behavior came from until I caught THREE SECONDS of this horrible show on tv.

My won was watching intently and I said "turn the tv off please." And to my horror, he dropped to the floor, and started whining over and over "I can't! I can't".

I wanted to throw up. No shock- this horrible excuse for a television show has been PERMANENTLY banned from our home. I will tell every parent I know of this god -awful excuse for an "educational program".

My son has caught glimpses of sponge bob (crude), power rangers (physical fighting) and even half an hour of gremlins (not in my presence, but I found out he saw the most gruesome parts) and had ZERO reaction to these things – he didn't karate chop our house cats, or imitate any of the crude humor on sponge bob….but in a mere TWO MINUTES of "CAILLOU" my son immediately picked up that petulant little Bart's HORRIBLE incessant whine and his "I can't" crap that he spews every time he is asked or told to do ANYTHING.

In every episode after the first season, Caillou whines about EVERYTHING. He throws things, yells at his sister "Nooooooo, Rosie!" And whines CONSTANTLY. God forbid you should let your child watch this and then he or she starts sounding like Caillou. I'd rather my son dance around saying "Say Map!" All day than listening to him whine about EVERYTHING.

BY FAR the worst children's show I've ever seen. PBS should be paying for a professional to help me fix this behavior (and a trip to the spa to relax my nerves after listening to the whining I'd never had to deal with before "CAILLOU". Flat out AWFUL.

Seriously! Anything else on TV for kids would be better than Caillou. Atleast for me when I see something on Disney or Nickelodeon a lot of the time, they atleast TRY to be good. For some of those shows, underneath there’s something about them to like. There’s always something about a show that deserves some credit but that doesn’t always mean it’s enough for people to enjoy the show. And Caillou is definitely the case.
Caillou is especially the worst lead character ever. I can’t stand that kid’s voice AT ALL. I can’t believe I even voiced him as a little kid when my brother wouldn’t let me have a turn with playing on our Gameboy. I’m always amazed how calm those parents were!
I’ll atleast give the show SOME credit if kids aren’t heavily influenced by it that they can’t change their ways due to the influence this show could have.

Rebecca 3 years ago

Am I the only one who thinks Caillou is cute? Well, maybe that’s because if you total the time watched of Caillou in a year to be about 5 times or less. My kids like the show but Nickelodeon & Disney seem to have always won over than Sprout/PBS. Sometimes we have a day where Sprout or PBS is left on for the whole day (when not playing a game or doing something else) but that’s only once in a while. It’s Max and Ruby that have been driving me crazy lately. I have my own theory there that someday I need to write down

At a doctors office right now and stumbled upon this. I am laughing out loud. My oldest is almost 7 and watched calliou and my 22 month old watches it. Good God they annoy the crap out of me. Glad I am not alone.
When in Rosie going to say more than 2-3 words? His mom needs smacked…who really keeps their cool like that? An epidode when they went on a walk and calliou fell…I would have been freaking out…whiny ass kid crying and rosie yapping….I would be going home…put some band aids on..and naptime all around. .with a cocktail for mommy!!!
Glad I am not alone and thanks for the laugh!!

ROFLOL! Awesome! Cannot stand Caillou!! I’m not sure which is worse, the whining done by my preschooler wanting to watch Caillou, or the whining of Caillou himself! I had effectively banned that nuisance from our home for 4 years before Grandma made the introduction!! My husband then discovered that Netflix has the whole series, and knowing how much I hate it, thought it pretty hilarious to let our son in on this as well (and why not? He’s not at home all day with him, I AM!) FML. Luckily, I can still get away with playing dumb and telling my son that Netflix is “broken” and mommy doesn’t know how to fix it, only daddy does. Ask him when you get up at 6 am on Saturday.

Why are all these colors giving me a headache? Thanks for sharing, this made my day!

The funny thing about that show is that it was supposed to be a show for the parents/caretakers in order to show how to deal with different situations, hence Caillou’s bratty behavior. But it was the kids who liked it because, hey, he’s the rebel toddler! Every kid wants to be the boss like him! :)

    REALLY?! I never knew that, probably it’s a huge fail and the parents and caretakers suck. :)

I hate Caillou so much. What a whiny little bastard. Why is he bald? My 5-year-old keeps asking me if he can have no hair like Caillou (not a chance, buddy). Why do his parents let him get away with murder? They are such craptastic parents. Caillou is going to grow up and be an entitled little shit. Also, I think I’m going to scream if my kids don’t stop calling all 6 of my cats Gilbert. They are not allowed to watch Caillou when I’m home, but their dad thinks it’s funny how much I hate it so he lets them watch it when I’m out. Ugh.

Sarah 3 years ago

My oldest loved Caillou but hasn’t watched in a long enough time to have forgotten about him. I hated that show with a passion(still do). I don’t mind if a show starts with a bratty character who learns a lesson that makes them change but when they are bratty and there is no lesson, thats when this mama has an issue. His whining bratty behavior banned him from the house months ago. I told my husband I didn’t care how much she liked it, she needs shows she can learn from (which is why, among many other reasons, the annoying creature known as spongebob got banned from my home)

Kara 3 years ago

I blame my husband for the caillou addiction my 2yr old has! I just have soooo many questions though… What’s with the freaking hearts all over the house? Why doesn’t caillou have any hair? Why does he wear shorts in the dead of Canadian-ass winter? Why does ms Martin only call Xavier “zah-vee-yay” and everyone else calls him “zay-vee-yer”… Ugh… The things I ponder…
If you think caillou’s voice is bad… It pales in comparison to that asshat friend of his Andre.

I can’t stand Caillou, and the kids watch it on PBS. I’m like seriously? How the hell is this considered PBS programming? But I make my objections vocal, even my three year old has taken stock. I’ll come in from folding laundry and say, I don’t like Caillou. She sighs and says “Yes he needs his butt spanked.” In a voice that clearly says, you’ve said this before mom. BTW I’m not a big advocate at spanking a child, or strangling a child. But Caillou sure does push that line. LOL.

I guess I’m the only one who doesn’t mind Caillou. It’s not as cool as Yo Gabba Gabba, but it’s worlds better than the jumping idiots on Fresh Beat Band. And I dread the day that my kid wants to watch garbage like I Carly or anything teen-like on Disney. This is why we have Japanese anime like Spirited Away and My Neighbor Totoro. And of course my 3 year old daughter also knows the name of every Star Wars bounty hunter. It’s all about steering your kid towards decent programming lol!
