Show Summary

"Growing Up is the Greatest Adventure of All" Welcome to the Caillou guide at! 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!

  • I liked it when i was little but now i hate it :C

    The show is not very great Callou's voice is to shrill and annoying, I feel like his voice actor is screaming. He is also very bratty when he doesn't get his way and he is sometimes mean to other little kids. All the other characters are tolerable but he is just awful.
  • I LOVE this Show!

    I am so disappointed in all the HATERS who have posted here. If you don't like it DON'T watch it!

    I have been in the child care business for over 15 years and now I have 10 grandkids and we all LOVED this show! It is very educational and I have been able to use different episodes for different scenarios in our daily life with my grand kids. So Grow up and Shut up and Turn the Channel if you don't like it. It is really a very cute show! I have 48 episodes on the DVR and also have NETFLIX on my phone and sometimes the grand kids use my phone to watch CAILLOU over and over

    Yours truly,

    CAILLOU For Evermoreless
  • When I was little, I was soooooooo glad I didn't watch this show.

    I had to honestly say that this was one of the top worst animated shows TV shows on earth. Now I really know why this show received a lot of criticism, this show has the most WHINIEST titular character on television. I'm really glad I didn't watch this show as a little kid because this show is a bad influence and it's one of the top biggest examples of what NOT to show your children what's on TV.moreless
  • kids love it

  • Dumb Show

    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
