Our Friday Frivolity host theme this week is Kids TV Shows. There are so many ways I could have gone with this prompt: favorite, funny, best, memories. I have already talked about questions parents ask about Kids Shows and how Curious George is leading my son astray. Today I chose to go with what may be the most insipid cartoon character of all time: Caillou the Annoying.
Oh sure there have been annoying shows and characters on children's TV probably as long as there have been Kids TV: Woody Woodpecker, Jabber Jaws, Barney, Teletubbies, Lazy Town even Elmo can get on one's nerves. But the vehemence against the mysteriously bald whiny brat named Caillou (pronounced Ky-yoo) is a bit terrifying. And yet it is also a relief that I am not the only parent that HATES CAILLOU!
The kid is 4 years old and as bald as a bowling ball while everyone else sports a full set of locks. We never find out if it is cancer, or alopecia, or mom and dad like shaving their kids head.
Many people have tried to re-imagine Caillou with hair.

But the mystery of his hair is a minor annoyance compared to his never ceasing WHINING!
