1. The theme song mentions the word Caillou 14, 356 times that will drive you nuts after five minutes of listening. The director basically told the voice actor, “As high-pitched as you can go, with extra whine.”
2. The kids who are watching this show imitates the tantrums of Caillou that is featured in every episode.
3. That face. When he is pretending to be sick.
4. When Cailou met Rosie for the first time.
5. This facial expression.
6. His face when he is pretending that he liked the olive bread cake baked by his grandmother.
Of course, Rosie ate it and liked it. Because Rosie is not a real character on the show.
7. Rosie is on the show to make Caillou jealous and to play with him.
8. Lots of people thought that Caillou is a kid with cancer. But as you keep on watching it, you will realize that he is a very annoying kid.
Why is Caillou bald? Lots people think it’s because the show is based on a kid with cancer. No: The creators did not give him hair because in the original books he was an age when many kids don’t have hair. Caillou is basically a hairless, ageless tyrant who is never happy with anything and was sent here to turn your kids into weak brats.
9. Back to business: The color scheme is terrible.
10. The clothes that the adults wears, like sexless blobs.
11. When they forgot to color the whole frame!
12. The plot and the animation of the show are unbearable.
13. The viewers are disgusted and they are planning to get it off air. And people were like “Yaasssss!”
14. The show’s story structure is annoyingly complicated. That grating narrator? It’s the voice of a grandmother reading Caillou stories to her two grandkids. So Caillou exists as a story within a story, just to be extra horrible to you.
It gets even more complicated later on, as explained by Crap My Kids Watch:
In later seasons, stories are introduced by his cat (in puppet form for some reason), who apparently can talk, but only in puppet form. In the story that the cat has introduced, the not-grandmother is still narrating, and the cat is now Caillou’s not-special, not-talking, not-puppet cat. I don’t get it at all.
15. When every episode showcases terrible parenting skills. In one episode, Caillou gets chicken pox. And then Rosie gets it, because Mom and Dad are too dumb to keep her away from Caillou.
Caillou looks a little *too* happy about the situation, too, yes?
16. Parents are frustrated while watching the constant whining of Caillou.
17. It gives people idea not to have kids.
18. But if you think you had enough, you can block the show, Netflix support people are like, “Yep, I will totally block that show for you.”
Because they get asked that all the time.
