Q. Why is Caillou bald?
A. Caillou’s character is based on a much younger character featured in illustrated children’s books published before the television series was created. Generally, for children, Caillou is a larger than life image of a preschooler. The fact that he is bald does not seem to bother preschoolers in the least. Not only do they never mention it, but when asked to think about why Caillou has no hair, our focus groups just laughed and replied: "He just doesn’t have any hair!"

Caillou's Family




Caillou - A 4-year-old boy who is fascinated by the world around him, Caillou has a vivid imagination with friends and family who help him navigate the trials and tribulations of growing up. In season 1 he was 2-3 years old and wore a gray shirt, but later he wore a yellow shirt. Caillou and his family live in a two-story blue house, whose address is mentioned in one episode: 17 Pine St. His nickname is the "Prince of Imagination". Caillou was first voiced by Bryn McAuley, then Jaclyn Linetsky, and then voiced by Annie Bovaird due to Linetsky's death in a car crash.

Doris - Caillou's mother. She is a busy homemaker most of the time but is seen to work in an office too. Caillou occasionally helps his mom with various chores and she often takes time to involve Caillou and his friends in activities such as crafts and baking. She is predominantly dressed in a red blouse with yellow trim. Doris is Voiced by Jennifer Seguin. She is only known on-screen as Mommy.

Boris - Caillou's father. He and Caillou occasionally work on projects around the house. Like Doris, his name is never explicitly mentioned in dialogue. Daddy always wears a green sweater with red trim while at home. In the episode Caillou The Chef he says he once worked at a restaurant and made pizza. Boris is voiced by Pat Fry. He is only known on-screen as Daddy.

Rosie (French name: Mousseline) - Rosie is Caillou’s lively and adorable 2-year-old sister who is a typical toddler. She always wants to take part in the same activities as Caillou. In later seasons of the series, she becomes more talkative and independent. Rosie was first voiced by Brigid Tierney, then Jesse Vinet.

Grandma - Caillou's paternal grandmother. Grandma is a very active how loves the arts and the outdoors. She passes that love on to Caillou. Grandma often comes up with creative ideas to solve Caillou's problems. She and Caillou paint and go birdwatching together. She is Boris' mother. Grandma is voiced by Pauline Little.

Grandpa - Caillou's paternal grandfather. He takes Caillou on adventures, often going on walks and riding the bus throughout the town in which they reside. In Caillou's hiding place, he showed Caillou a hidden area inside a tree in the backyard. In the episode Camping with Grandpa, he and Caillou camp in the backyard. He is Boris' father and loves to tell stories about Caillou’s Daddy, when he was a little boy. He always wears a blue shirt. Grandpa was originally voiced by George Carlin, but after Carlin's death in 2008, his voice was replaced by Tim Conway.
Gilbert - Caillou's pet cat.
