Do you know Caillou? This is the main cartoon character in the animated series of the same name. Caillou is a famous Canadian educational children’s television series that was first shown on Teletoon.
Caillou is an imaginative four years old but who has a love for forms of transport machinery such as rocket ships and airplanes. For years, “Caillou” has delighted many Canadian kids and annoyed their parents. But have you ever wondered why he doesn’t have hair?
There are some hypotheses, one of them assumed that the four-year-old boy has cancer or progeria, which is one of the reasons why his parents always let him get his way. However, people were just dramatic everything, this hypothesis isn’t true.
The TV series “Caillou” was actually inspired by a much younger character from an illustrated children’s book. In the story, Caillou has created as a nine months old baby. As he got older, publishers were afraid that people would not recognize him if they drew hair for the character, thus they decided to keep his bald.
“Caillou’s baldness may make him different, but we hope it helps children understand that being different isn’t just okay, it’s normal” Chouette Publishing expresses their morals on their site.
In addition, since this TV series was aimed at the preschoolers, it is more important to research their thoughts on this matter. The TV show’s website unveiled that the preschoolers watching the show often ignore this detail. “The fact that he is bald does not seem to bother preschoolers in the least” written on the site. “Not only do they never mention it but when asked to think about why Caillou has no hair, our focus group just laughed and replied: ‘He just doesn’t have any hair!’”.
However, there are some people who have thought that Caillou would have looked prettier if he had had hair.
