Re: Seriously, what is with Cailou??

My 2, 3 and 4 year olds LOVE Calliou and your thread makes me laugh because you sound like my DH. He thinks Calliou is a whiny brat and can't stand his voice. I became alarmed when my year old started talking like him. Ugh!

This is soooo funny, we were just talking about this show in the teacher's lounge at lunch, even the 23 year old rookie teacher had seen it flipping channels and said "why is a 4 year old still bald?"

Wow! My niece loves it! DH hates it. It was a life-saver babysitter when I was sick with the swine flu.

I asked that same exact question the other day.

It's kind of weird, b/c his sister (who is younger, I think she's 2?) has a TON of hair.

Re: Seriously, what is with Cailou??

I like it alot and my son loves it. It is the last thing he watches before going to bed each night (and has been watching it for a year). He got 6 Caillou Dvd's for Christmas even. My one complaint is that on the sprout channel they basically play the same 20 or so episodes over and over again. Now the earlier episodes that we have seen on youtube when Cailou was 2 or 3 he was much brattier than he is now at age 4.

Re: Seriously, what is with Cailou??

I think its that every tiny issue in Calliou's life gets acknowledged and that's the draw for kids. Everything is so great when you're Calliou! Not so easy to apply to real life, but if a kid can live vicariously, they will. Easy to see why so many parents can't stand the kid. His parents are hard to match!

My oldest was really drawn to him. I used to joke: "I'm not Calliou's mom, so don't try to butter me up!"

Re: Seriously, what is with Cailou??

DS hasn't ever seen it...however:

Can I just say I HATE Max and Ruby?! Hate it. I know I'm reading too much into it but where are their parents? There grandma is around but no sign of parents. Why doesn't Max EVER get in trouble??? He's always doing stupid crap that could get him seriously hurt and Ruby doesn't even bat an eye! Max is very intelligent, but can only say one phrase over and over again, and pulls some of the dumbest crap!? Whew, glad I got that out.

I have a soft spot for Max & Ruby, reminds me of my brother and I when we were small (Ruby's always trying to get Max to do stupid things).

I too don't really get the attraction with Caillou.
