CAILLOU, a four-year-old little-kid hero, epitomizes the wonder with which children experience the ordinary - from understanding one's family to venturing around the corner for the first time. The series blends animation and live-action segments as Caillou makes sense of the world and helps young viewers do the same.

For children 3 to 6 years old.

Series Goals

  • Help children discover and learn new things.
  • Help children develop social interaction skills like giving, caring and sharing.
  • Help children learn about family and friends.

The characters on ARTHUR grapple with the same issues that many children in the audience face: maintaining friendships, working things out with siblings, dealing with fears, and doing the right thing. The show can serve as a springboard for family conversations that invite kids to talk about similar situations in their lives.

Helping Kids Prepare for School

In each episode, Caillou and his friends confront an age-appropriate concept relating to social literacy and child development. Caillou focuses on the social and emotional growth of young children, and encourages them to ask questions and explore the world around them.
