Someone comes to this blog searching for “why is Caillou bald” every single day. Apparently, it is a matter of great concern to a lot of people. I am more concerned about the lack of adult supervision for Max, Ruby, Dora and Diego. At least Caillou has adults who take care of him. Everyone worried about Caillou needs to relax. His name MEANS “bald head” or “smooth stone” in French. Maybe he gave himself a haircut and his mother had to repair the damage. Maybe his parents hate hippies. Maybe his town has a lice problem. He’s cute with that smooth little head. He’s bald because the artist likes him that way.
