Episode Summary

EDIT
In today's puppet segment, Rexy says he wants to go on a worldwide adventure. He says to Gilbert that he told him he was growing up, so he thinks he's ready for his adventure. Gilbert, however, tells him that he's not grown up enough yet. Rexy waits like a few seconds and then asks if he's grown up enough. Gilbert tells him it takes years to grow up. Rexy then sings a downbeat song about how he was going to have a great adveture, but now he has to stay right where he is. As he finishes the song, Gilbert and Teddy show up, saying they're going on a worldwide adventure. They tell him that just because they can't really go on a worldwide adventure doesn't mean they can't pretend. They sing an upbeat version of Rexy's song and then all agree that they enjoyed their pretend adventure. Caillou today is also going on adventures, as well as trying out some new things both by himself and with others. "Caillou Becomes a Waiter" Caillou is drwawing and he's drawn a nice picture of Julie, his and Rosie's babysitter. It just so happens she's coming over today because Mommy and Daddy are going to a restaurant. She arrives, but Caillou complains that he wants to go to the restaurant with Mommy and Daddy. They tell him that he can't come, but he'll have fun with Julie. He insists that he won't have a good time. Julie asks Caillou if he wants to help with dinner. Mommy made his favorite, macaroni and cheese. Caillou's really not interested at first, but then Julie says that they can make their own restauran. So Julie, Rosie and Caillou all get together and make up pretend menus and Caillou makes a bowtie for himself and pretends to be a waiter. As Julie and Rosie sit down to eat, he brings them their menus and has them order off of them. He even gets four pennies out of "Julie" as payment, although when he asks Rosie for payment, she manages to bargain it down to one penny. It's now time for Caillou to order, so Julie takes on the part of the waiter. Caillou tells her that he doesn't have any money to pay her with. She tells him that if you can't pay, you have to do the dishes. Caillou tells her that he wanted to anyway. He says he's glad that he didn't go to Mommy and Daddy's restaurant because their restaurant is much more fun. "The Big Boat" Today, Caillou and his family are going to ride on a sailboat. It's morning and Caillou uses a toy boat of his to play pretend about their journey. To help demonstrate, Daddy adds a sail to the boat. Mommy then says that it's time to leave for the marina. Daddy has Caillou put on sneakers, saying that they're the best shoes for riding in a boat. He also gives Caillou a toy pinwheel. The sailboat they're going on is white and is owned by a friend of theirs named Helen. They get to the marina and at first Caillou doesn't see the boat, but with Mommy and Daddys' help, he spots it. Helen welcomes everyone aboard. She has them all put on lifejackets. Then, she takes Daddy and Caillou to see her indoor boathouse, but Mommy and Rosie stay outside because Rosie has taken an interest in watching the seagulls. Helen shows Caillou that her boat has lots of different things, such as a kitchen, a bathroom and even a bed. After this exploration, Helen gives everyone some grapes. It's getting windy, so it's time to set sail. They go sailing, but then the boat stops, so the sails have to be turned in the direction the wind is blowing. Rosie gets scared as the boat goes faster and faster, but calms down when Caillou gives her his pinwheel. Helen lets Caillou be the captain of the boat for a bit and wear her cap. Finally, the visit comes to an end. Helen gets back her cap and Caillou gets back his pinwheel. That night, Caillou is still thinking about the boating experience, so he sails his toy boat in the bathtub. "Sticking to It!" Caillou's looking for one of his favorite toys, a tractor. He's looked all around, but can't find it, so he yells for Mommy. Mommy looks at his room and suggests that he clean it, think that maybe if he did, he might be able to find it. Cailllou starts to clean up. He finds a toy airplane of his, but then he ends up accidentally stepping on the tractor, which was buried under a pile of clothes. He shows it to Mommy, who figures it wouldn't have happened if his room had been such a mess. She tells him that she has an idea that could make housework fun. She and Caillou get together and make up a sticker chart. Rosie joins in too and gets her own chart. The chart includes various tasks and each time Caillou or Rosie does one of them, they get a sticker. Caillou gets a sticker for cleaning up a glass of milk he spills. Caillou and Rosie also both get stickers for brushing their teeth. Then, Caillou notes a very nice dinosaur sticker. Mommy says that if he wants such a special sticker, he'll have to do something special for it. So Caillou cleans up all of the clothes and stuff lying around his room and he earns the special sticker. Rosie also gets another sticker because she helped out with the cleaning. "New Clothes" Caillou is sitting at the breakfast table, stirring the milk in his cereal bowl. Daddy is on the phone, but he's just getting off and says that Grandma and Grandpa are having an anniversary party tonight. Caillou's excited at the idea of a party and wants to go right away, but the party's not until the evening and Caillou isn't even dresed yet. Mommy suggests that maybe today he can dress himself. Caillou tries this and ends up in a red shirt with blue shorts. However, upon closer examination, Daddy finds that he is actually wearing two shorts. Furthermore, he takes him inside and shows him that it's a bit nippy out. Caillou decides to reconsider the shorts idea. So he tries again and this time puts on a green shirt and a pair of pants, but the pants are on backwards. That evening, it comes time for the anniversary party and now it's time to put on some nicer clothes. Caillou dons some clothes he feels are pretty nice, but when he sees Daddy and Grandpa looking very spiffy in their clothing, he decides to reconsider his apparel and comes back in something even nicer, even wearing a tie, although he needs a little help getting the tie on properly.moreless
