Caillou Yanked from Us Air to Parents’ Pleasure Caillou Makes Youngsters Scream, Claim Parents!

Caillou, a 4-year-old boy who lives in a blue house with his parents and sister on Pine Street, is the main character of an educational show aimed towards toddlers and preschoolers.

Caillou makes intangible friends, discovers the outdoors, and masters new sports. Caillou, ever gregarious and inquisitive, encounters all the delights and surprises a young child might hope for.

Each episode of seasons 1-3 includes, in addition to the animated segments showcasing Caillou’s travels, puppet skits and films of youngsters in real-world settings.

Canada’s Caillou, based on a Quebec children’s book series, has drawn a surprising amount of criticism for a show about a four-year-old boy’s routine activities.

Apparently, It Was Enough for One Frustrated Parent that Caillou Indoctrinate Her Child’s Whining Ways.

Concerns have been voiced by parents who say their children’s language and behaviour improved when they started watching Caillou.

Several formerly well-behaved children become violent after watching Caillou. Formerly good kids are now actively engaging in criminal activity.

Preschoolers and toddlers in the real world are often not like the cartoon character Caillou. Caillou has nothing in common with the children of my friends and relatives. Their politeness and intelligence are just remarkable.

Landon remarkably imitates the voice of a ten-year-old boy when he talks.

As Landon watched Suite Life of Zack and Cody, he rolled his eyes every time London appeared on screen and muttered something about how annoying she is.

This is saying something, given that I don’t have any strong feelings either way for London. Nonetheless, her naivete has the potential to become irritating.

Caillou Is an Aggressively Terrible Show that Is Hurting Children All Across the World, and It’s All Canada’s Fault, According to Tristin Hopper.

Canada’s Caillou, based on a Quebec children’s book series, has drawn a surprising amount of criticism for a show about a four-year-old boy’s routine activities.

Facebook sites titled “I loathe Caillou” exist. The widespread distaste that many parents feel for the programme has been chronicled by dozens of parenting websites.

If you type “Caillou hate” into Google, you’ll get over 400 thousand results.

The critical reception is uniformly terrible. The show has a dismal 4.3 out of 10 rating on IMDB. It gets a 4.8/10 grade on TV.com, which is the same as an F.

However, there are already three petitions on Change.org demanding that the show be cancelled.

Most concerns about Caillou centre on the idea that the show’s titular figure has some sort of supernatural power to transform its young viewers into shrieking monsters by reaching through the screen.

Children that watch the show often try to act like Caillou. The kids on “Caillou” are “whining, demanding, flinging (themselves) on the floor kicking and screaming,” as one Michigan mother puts it on the petition to get the show taken off the air.

The explanation is elementary: Caillou is a chronic complainer. Caillou spends most of each episode complaining about having to do something boring, but he never gets in trouble for it.

In fact, Caillou’s whining may be the only thing he does for long periods of time.
