Season 4 Episode 15

Caillou Outdoors

Aired Wednesday 9:00 AM Jul 19, 2006 on PBS



  • Trivia

    • Caillou hosts the "Which one doesn't belong?" game at the end of the episode. In a group of a carrot, a tomato, lettuce and a toothbrush, the toothbrush doesn't belong because it's not a vegetable. A ferryboat is the odd one out in a group that also includes a car, a van and a truck --- the others all travel on land. In a set of a swingset, a flower, a slide and a mechanical horsey, the flower is a plant, whereas the others are things to play on.

    • Caillou talks about himself at the end of the episode. He also talks about his Grandpa.

    • Caillou and Daddy sing a song called "A Car Trip" in-between the second and third stories.

    • The third segment doesn't really fit the "outdoor" theme. A portion of it takes places outdoors, but the play is held indoors.

    • Although online episode descriptions describe the boy who visits Caillou's playschool, Alan, as having Down's Syndrome, there is no mention of it on the show itself.

  • Quotes

    • Caillou: I found out what Alan is really good at --- acting!

    • Caillou: Ya'ay. The dragon is now tame. He's going to take me for a dragon ride. Take a picture, Clementine.

    • Clementine: A dragon in the jungle? I'd better take a picture of him.

    • Narrator: Caillou wondered why Alan was having some much trouble with climbing and swinging. After all, Alan was a whole year older.

    • Daddy: Caillou, look. It's the captain!
      Captain: Welcome aboard.
      Narrator: The ferryboat captain showed Caillou the controls of the boat and when they got close to the shore, he even let Caillou blow the horn.

    • Daddy: Gas is like food for the car. It makes the car go.

    • Caillou: Where are we going to drive to, Daddy?
      Daddy: Oh, I don't know.

    • Caillou: Rosie, you're all white.
      Rosie: Rosie baking!
      Mommy: Oh is that what's going on here?
      Daddy: Yup. Believe it or not, this will all result in a delicious apple pie.

    • Narrator: Caillou loved playing in the dirt. He was finding all sorts of interesting things.
