  • Trivia

    • Although this episode appears in schedule listings as "Caillou the Artiste," the title-display shown before the game segment reads "Caillou the Artist."

    • Caillou talks about both his Daddy and Rosie at the end of the show.

    • Caillou hosts a new game at the end of the episode in which the viewer assists in finding items hidden in various scenes. Items found include Mommy's keys, Daddy's shoe and Rexy.

    • Caillou and Mommy sing a song called "We're Cooking" in-between the second and third stories. Interestingly, there is a song on the "Caillou's Favorite Songs" albums that probably would have fit just as well, if not better --- "The Recipe for Having Fun." Like "What's Cooking," this song is also about Caillou and Mommy making a cake. It is possible that they couldn't acquire the rights to use it on the show, or it didn't fit within the time requirements.
