The series is based on the book series by Christine L'Heureux, and Hélène Desputeaux, and produced by CINAR (the first 3 seasons only), Cookie Jar Entertainment (Seasons 4-5 only), 9 Story Entertainment (now 9 Story Media Group) (Seasons 4-5 only), and Atomic Cartoons (Season 5 only), and co-produced by Sunwoo Entertainment (Season 2 only), Shanghai Animation Film Studio (Season 3 only), Cosgrove Hall Films (Season 4 only), and Clockwork Zoo (Season 5 only). It centers on a 4-year-old boy named Caillou who is fascinated by the world around him.

Plot[edit | edit source]

Caillou lives in a blue house on 17 Pine Street (as mentioned in the 2002 episode "Where I Live") with his mother, father, and his younger sister, Rosie. He has many adventures with his family and friends and uses his imagination in every episode.

Each episode in Seasons 1–3 has a theme and is divided into 9 short sections that mix animation, video of kids in real-life situations, and puppet skits (Seasons 2-3 only). In Seasons 4–5, episodes are divided into 3 short sections; the puppet segment was dropped, along with the "Real Kids" version of the segment.

During the first season, many of the stories in the animated version began with a grandmother (who is also the show's narrator) introducing the story to her grandchildren, then reading the story about the book. Since the second season, the narrator/grandmother is an unseen character.

Caillou[edit | edit source]

Caillou is the title character of the show. Caillou was first voiced by Bryn McAuley from 1997 through 2000, then Jaclyn Linetsky from 2000 through 2003, and then, due to Jaclyn Linetsky's death, Annie Bovaird from 2003 through 2010. Caillou was first shown in the episode "Caillou Makes Cookies", which aired in 1997.

Caillou is an average, imaginative four-year-old boy with a love for forms of transportive machinery such as rocket ships and airplanes. A dreamer, Caillou is prone to frequent dream sequences in some episodes visualizing his daydreams and hopes, and many episodes chronicle his normal daily experiences with his parents, friends, and neighbors. Caillou particularly loves his stuffed dinosaur Rexy and teddy bear Teddy, along with his pet cat Gilbert, all of whom are depicted as puppets in segments featured in the earlier episodes.

The puppets[edit | edit source]

The puppet segments were used only on the PBS telecasts of Caillou from 2000 to 2003, as continuity to fill time usually taken up by commercial breaks during the original Teletoon, Citytv, SCN, CTV, and Access broadcasts; later episodes on PBS did not include the puppet segment continuity.

  • Gilbert – Caillou's pet cat. He is the leader of the group. He has a greyish-blue body with black stripes and loathes dogs with a passion. He especially hates the bulldog in the neighbourhood. In the puppet segments of the program, Gilbert often composes odes. Puppeteered by Mike Petersen.
  • Rexy – Caillou's toy dinosaur. Bluish in color and speaks in a somewhat Hispanic accent, he is very playful. Rexy has the incapability to give a "good" hug. Rexy is noted for being rather pedantic. His speech impediment has been the scourge of his existence; he is often teased about it, and tends to react violently to any mention of it. Puppeteered by Kevin Yamada.
  • Teddy – An old teddy bear that once belonged to Caillou's daddy, and now belongs to Caillou, Teddy is reasonable, cute and brown. He is somewhat pessimistic, but all in all, he just needs a hug. Puppeteered by Frank Meschkuleit.
  • Deedee – A brown squirrel, she has a bushy tail, and is often seen playing with Rexy. Deedee first appeared as a baby squirrel when Rexy found on the ground lost from her family. Deedee lives in Caillou's backyard where most of the puppet segments take place. She was absent in Season 3. Puppeteered by Wendy Welch.

Reception[edit | edit source]

A 2011 study conducted at the University of Virginia, published in the journal Pediatrics, tested the show's effect on preschool-aged children's attention spans and cognitive abilities. The study had three groups of four-year-olds each engaged in activities; one group watched Caillou, another watched SpongeBob SquarePants, and the third group drew pictures. After nine minutes, the children were tested on mental functions; those that watched Caillou had very similar results to the group that drew pictures, both of whom performed significantly better than the group that watched the SpongeBob episode.

As Caillou appeared as a much younger child in the original line of children's books, the character originally had no hair. When illustrators found that adding hair made the character unrecognizable, it was decided that Caillou would never have hair.
