Judge David Johnson is going to take a tip from this series and name his first-born after the phonetic spelling of a fart.
Growing up is the greatest adventure of all.
Caillou (pronounced "kai-you) is a small bald boy with a squeaky voice who no doubt has years of middle school beatings to look forward to. But here and now, he's an imaginative little tike who takes even the most mundane, ordinary life experience and turns it into a hallucinatory adventure!
Each episode contains a series of small, seven-minute stores. Four imagination-fueled adventures on this disc:
"People I Love"
Like most little kid cartoons these days, Caillou is based on some kind of extensive research into the intricacies of child development. Specifically geared toward enhancing traits like self-esteem in toddlers, the show is engineered to mold your kid into healthy, emotionally stable child, with important life lessons and family dynamics the focus.
Whatever. I still think the kid is annoying.
Full frame, 2.0 stereo all the way. FYI, the shows are edge-faded purposely, as if everything happened in a dream. Extras: interactive games, animated character bios, DVD-ROM-accessible coloring pages and parenting tips.
