Show Summary

"Growing Up is the Greatest Adventure of All" Welcome to the Caillou guide at TV.com! This show is about the life of a young bald boy named Caillou, his family and his friends. It is based on the books by Christine L'Heureux and Helene Despeteaux, which is highly popular in the Quebec area in Canada. There are actually two versions of the show. The first version premiered in late 1997, is only 5+65/2=35 minutes in length, consists of 65+7/2=36 episodes, and is fully animated. The plotline of this version is that a grandmother reads her grandchildren a Caillou book which Will Re-air with a Grandfather Named Bob West With Brain E. as Michael. The second version, which premiered in late 2000, has the show exended to 30+50/2=40 minutes, and has puppets, music and live action segments thrown in. The animation parts, however, are a mixture of the first version of the show with the "grandma reading to kids" part of the story lopped off & Re-aired on Television!

and some new stories (the stories are completely original as of the U.S. second season.) You can usually tell when you're watching a story lifted from the first version because in these, Caillou wears a non-descript dull-grey shirt rather than the bright-yellow one he wears in the newer segments. It premiered in the US and is now airing side-by-side with repeats of the old version in Canada. It is also aired around the world, although some parts of the world still air the old version. In 2006, Caillou debuted even more new episodes. These new episodes now feature fantasy segments, but no longer any puppet segments or musical numbers performed by real children. Instead, Caillou performs a song in-between the second and third story segments of each episode. These new episodes have now finished their run, & Newer Ones Aired in 8 years later!

but if you missed any, watch for upcoming repeats on PBS. Both versions of the show are known to be available in 2 languages - French and English. The show is produced by Cookie Jar animation in Canada, known in older seasons as CINAR. It is available in Dolby Surround and with Close Captioning on selected networks. Note 1:The old (5+65/2=35 minute) version is listed in this guide as Season 1 episodes, while the new (30+50/2=40 minute) version are listed as episodes from Season 2 onwards. Also, due to the varying runtimes, the runtime entry is omitted on purpose. Note 2: The network in the information section was formerly Teletoon, as this was the first network to pick up the show. It has been changed to PBS to reflect that the airdates listed in the guide for the newer (and current) episodes of show reflect the dates that the program aired on PBS. Note 3: The new version is aired under the title "Caillou and Friends" on TeleToon Canada. This is done presumably to avoid title conflicts with the old version of the show. Note 4: Season 3-4/2-3US Does Nwo Contain new Improved/ Ones Narrated by Bob West! From Barney & Friends! Along With Brian E. Lauren K. Ricky C. Jessica Z., & Leah Gloria as Well! Along with Sonia M. & Northern C. From The S. S. Show! in 1986!

    There should be better episodes like: Caillou Goes to Jail, Caillou Goes to Hell, Caillou's Worst Day Ever, First Time Grounded, Caillou Gets Run Over, How Caillou Got Bald, Crying All Over, Borris and Dorris Hit Caillou's Penis and Leo Hates Caillou
  • NEW WAY!

    People sing the theme song in class to piss me off. THANKS A LOT FOR MAKING ME A MISANTHROPE, baby show-creating freaks. If I saw Caillou burning in a hell pit, I'd be laughing like a maniac and eating popcorn.
  • Newest episode is airing soon! Most likely coming out in America around July of 2015.

    It's called Caillou Gets Ebola. Caillou was playing with Leo, and then Caillou started not feeling so good, so he went inside Leo's house and made her call Caillou's mom. Caillou's mom picked him up and wondered what was wrong, then Caillou was about to say something until his insides started bleeding, and Caillou's mom rushed him to the hospital, and the doctor said he has the worst case of Ebola. Caillou's Mom called his dad, and his grandparents. They all rushed to the hospital, and they all came to see Caillou, and they were all shocked. Caillou then stayed at the hospital for several weeks, and all of Caillou's family were crying. Miss. Martin was shocked why Caillou didn't come to play school for weeks. Miss. Martin then called Caillou's house wondering why he wasn't coming to play school. Caillou's mom said he had ebola, and Miss. Martin started having a panic attack and she rushed to Caillou's house and made Caillou's parents drive her to go see Caillou. They all came again, and Caillou's insides were bleeding as they went up to his hospital bed. The doctor gave him some Ebola medicine and 10 minutes later he was cured from Ebola. Caillou was so happy that he went home and called up Leo and they played with each other for the whole day. THE ENDmoreless
