Duh, have you even watched the show, he is just a kid, has nothing to do with cancer. Are you making that assumption based on his appearance? Some people should THINK before they TYPE.

Yeah, cancer has nothing to do with it. In French, Caillou means "pebble" or "bald Head". The original books were based on a 9-month old baby who still hadn't grown any hair. Cute idea, I suppose, but I still have a hard time with the character. The whining and complaining settled a bit in the newer episodes, but it was quite bad in the earlier ones.

This will be great if you want to teach your kids how to whine and complain, because that's all Caillou ever does.
