  • Episode Description
  • The puppets are all outside, imagining things in the clouds. Gilbert spots a bird in a tree and they all hear it singing. They don't really understand it, but they figure if maybe they sing a song, it'll help, since birds communicate by singing. They sing a big number called "The Animal Song" with lots of different animal sounds. Once they're done, Rexy asks if the bird liked it and it chirps back as if it did. Caillou also enjoys seeing and interacting with a bunch of different animals. "Elephants" Caillou is inside, showing Rosie animals in a storybook. He points out an elephant to Rosie. Mommy comes in and says that they'll see some today during the trip to the zook. They go to the zoo and Cailou sees a parrot.He likes it, but he really wants to go see the elephants. So they follow a sign, which has a picture of an elephant pointining in one direction and a picture of a whale pointing in another. They see a monkey on the way to the elephants. Rosie likes it and Caillou tries to imitate it. Then they see hippos, which Caillou likes because they're really big, but he still wants to see the elephants. Mommy gives both him and Rosie a piggyback ride to where the elephants are. Caillou is happy to see them and they're as neat as he thought they would be. He sees a baby elephant and also sees an elephant spraying itself with water. "Caillou and the Sheep" Mommy has a bad cold and is trying to get some rest, so Caillou is spending the day with Grandma. Grandma has a special surprise for him. She takes him to the farm of an old friend of hers. It's a sheep farm and Calllou is afraid of the sheep at first, but he gets the courage to go up to one and say hello. He meets Emma, Grandma's friend, who possibly kind of like what Rosie might when she grows up. Emma shows him around her house, showing him some of the different things they use the wool from the farm for. Then, Caillou meets Mary, Emma's kid, who also has the same Rosie-ish hairstyle as Emma. Mary shows Caillou how to work a spinning wheel. Then they go outside and Caillou spots a sheep that's been sheared of it's wool. He thinks it looks funny. Mary points out her Dad, who is hard at work shearing the wool off a sheep. She says that her Dad concentrates so hard that he probably won't even notice them. She leads Caillou to a small barn, where it seems that a lamb has gotten loose. She explains to Caillou that lamb is what they call a baby sheep. Caillou's a bit scared because that it seems the lamb won't even listen to Mary. She finally gets a hold of it, however and Caillou pets it. He likes it because its wool is even softer than that of the normal sheep. He watches as Mary gives it milk from a bottle and then she finally places it back in its pen. It comes time for Caillou and Grandma to leave and they're both given something to take home. When Cailloug gets home, he finsd out that it's a plush sheep. Grandma gives hers to Rosie and Caillou gives his to Mommy to make her feel better. Gilbert starts trying to play with Rosie's sheep and they tell him to quiet down, since Mommy is trying to rest. "Caillou and the Puppies" Caillou is going over to Mr. Hinkle's with his Daddy to help Mr. Hinkle make a doghouse. When they get there, there are are many puppies and also a Mommy named Mimi. The narrator explains that Caillou is sometimes nervous around dogs, but he soon gets up the courage to pet one. Mr. Hinkle explains that they're not actually his dogs. He's looking after them for a friend and he's making the doghouse to surprise his friend. Caillou goes off to look for a lost puppy. He starts playing with some of the others and then realizes he's still supposed to be looking. He finally finds it and it seems to be playing hide-and-seek. The puppy hides under the roof of the doghouse and Caillou has a good time chasing after it. The doghouse is finally completed (it seems Mr. Hinkle and Daddy did most of the work) and Caillou goes inside himself to check it out. He approves of it. "Clementine's New Pet" Clementine has just gotten a new pet and Caillou and his Mommy are going over to her house to see it. On the way there, Caillou wonders just what the pet could be. He wonders if maybe it could be a dog, but Mommy says that it isn't. He thinks maybe it could be a squirrel, but Mommy says that squirrels aren't pets. She starts drop hints as to what it could be, saying that it's orange. Caillou wonders if maybe it could be a dinosaur. They finally get to Clementine's and Caillou meets up with Clementine. She tells him that her pet blows bubbles. He finally gets to see it: it's a goldfish. Clementine shows him that it has special food to eat. Mommy tells Caillou to take off his jacket. Caillou refers to the fish as "fishie" and Clementine tells him that it's name is Goldie. Clementine's Mom gives them a snack and Caillou pretends to eat like a fish. Caillou and Clementine go off and draw pictures of Goldie. It's almost time to go, but first Caillou shows his drawing to Goldie. Back at home, Caillou tells Daddy all about Goldie. He also shows off his drawing, which Gilbert seems to like.moreless
