Some critics believed the show taught children bad behavior, such as being rude to their parents and throwing tantrums if they don’t get what they want. Even in Caillou’s home country, critics were drawn to the show.
“Unlike most children’s programming, Caillou makes almost no attempt to educate its young audience. There are no veiled math problems, spelling lessons, or morality tales; it’s just calm, non-threatening, bright-colored people navigating everyday tasks, “The National PostTristin Hopper, a 2017 writer for’s Tristin wrote this: Caillou Backlash was at its peak. “It’s escapist TV: A toddler version of Sex and the City or Mad Men.

Change.org petitionDemand YouTube and other channels to remove the show. “Caillou is a menace that has been allowed to run unchecked for quite some time, “The petitioner wrote. “The creators of the show said they made him the way he was, in order to allow kids a way to see that their feelings are validated.
