Dad and mom could not be happier that ‘Caillou’ is cancelled
Kids’s present “Caillou” is formally useless. And fogeys are dancing on the “little brat’s” grave.
“We’re saying farewell to @cailloudhx,” PBS Youngsters announced in a tweet together with ideas “for what to do when your baby’s favourite media goes away.”
But it surely appears the bald cartoon character was the least-favorite animated star amongst mothers and dads all over the place, who’ve been celebrating on-line because the information of the present’s cancellation broke.
“Caillou’s reign of terror is over!!” wrote one relieved viewer on Twitter, whereas different Caillou-skeptics’ complaints have included that the tot is a bootleg Charlie Brown, referred to as him a “little brat” and “evil.”
Another soberly added, “You received’t be missed.”
The present first aired in 1997 on Teletoon, and new episodes have been launched till 2010, after which Caillou reruns dominated the popular-kids station — till just lately.
The perennial 4-year-old clearly didn’t win over the hearts of the millennial mother or father set. Per the present’s theme track, Caillou enjoys exploring his fictional world on Pine Road alongside together with his dad and mom, associates, grandparents, pets and puppet buddies. The present included segments to show younger ones easy methods to brush their tooth, the times of the week, and easy methods to work by mood tantrums and sibling squabbles, which the titular character apparently struggled with all through the 5 seasons the present aired.
“Rising up just isn’t so powerful, ‘cept once I’ve had sufficient,” sings Caillou within the present’s theme track sequence, which exhibits the tot throwing toys and beating his fists on the toilet flooring. Movies circulating on-line present Caillou pinching his baby sister Rosie, and whining to his mother. Some dad and mom admit that Caillou’s unhealthy habits on-screen precipitated them to ban the Canadian collection from their house.
“That is the one present he wasn’t allowed to observe,” wrote one mother. One other PBS-reared grownup reminisced, “This present was banned in my home and lots of of my associates!”
Caillou was not with out his skilled critics both. One op-ed from Canadian newspaper the Nationwide Submit categorized Caillou as a “shameless whiner,” including that the toon, “flip[s] the present’s younger viewers into shrill monsters.”
With the cancellation kicking off 2021, dad and mom are relieved to see that Caillou is lastly getting the punishment they believe he deserved all alongside.
Caillou passes the torch to a couple more moderen and extra standard PBS cartoon characters together with Daniel the Tiger, a former supporting character from “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood”; Pinkalicious, the co-star of “Pinkalicious & Peterrific”; and Molly, a 10-year-old Alaska-native protagonist of “Molly of Denali.”
