'''''Caillou''''' (pronounced Kai-You or Kai-U) is a Canadian educational children's television series that was first shown on Teletoon, with its first episode airing on the former channel on September 15, 1997; the show later moved to Treehouse TV, with its final episode being shown on that channel on October 3, 2010. The series is based on the books by Hélène Desputeaux. It centers on a 4-year-old boy named Caillou who is fascinated by the world around him. The series made its debut on PBS Kids on September 2000. The series was produced by Cinar (later Cookie Jar Entertainment in 2004), and later Clockwork Zoo for the show's 5th and final season. The series is currently owned by DHX Media, and it is known to be one of the most hated little kids' shows because of the title character Caillou having a bad attitude and crying a lot. His actions have caused a very bad hatedom because of that.

== Why They're More Spoiled And Bratty Than Caillou ==
 +
===Overall===
 +
#They both have toxic [[Vyond Fandom and Hatedom|Vyond fans and haters]], Plotagonners, [[TheTopTens Community|TheTopTenners]] and [[The Gacha Life Community|Gachatubers]].
 +
#As expected, they can never handle differing views on the series, especially the haters.
 +
#They ignore that the show was based on a book series and probably never read it. They (mostly the fans) even don't know anything about ''Caillou'' nor the source material yet they act as they do.
 +
#They also come from the [[Chuck E. Cheese Fandom and Hatedom]] since there are many Caillou-related videos involving the restaurant and entertainment center.
 +
#*They would also come from the One Punch Man Fandom and Hatedom as Saitama looks like an adult version of Caillou.
 +
#They never stop complaining about [[Classic Caillou Hatedom|Caillou in the 1st season of the show]] (also known as Classic Caillou) for being a brat. He's only a fictional character, guys.
 +
#*On the flip side, they deify his season 4-5 counterpart like he was the son of Jesus Christ, all only because he's a Gary Stu of his earlier self having absolutely zero bad qualities. This makes them hypocrites as they hate his earlier self for having bad characterization yet his later self gets admired to death despite still having bad characterization.
 +
#They both give ''Caillou'' a really bad name.
 +
#Whether they choose to like it or hate it, it's mostly because someone else does, which is [[Circle-Jerking (Opinion Bandwagoning)|circle-jerking]].
 +
#They both spoiled [[The Cartoon Community]].
 +
#A lot of them are either [[Manchildren|manchildren]], [[Little Kids in Groups|little kids]], Internet Trolls, or [[Nostalgia-Tards|nostalgiatards]].
  
== Why They're Toxic ==
+
===Fandom===
[[File:Caillou-grounded-no-reason.jpg|thumb|200px|An example of your typical "Caillou Gets Grounded" video made by [[the Vyond Community]]]]
+
#They overpraise the show like it's the best TV show or cartoon ever.
#It mostly comes from the former [[The Vyond Community|Vyond Community]]. They are mostly [[Cartoon Police Groups, Anti-Cartoon Police Groups and Generic GoAnimate Groups|UTTP THDTC members]].
+
#*They also admire the titular character to death like he's the second coming of Jesus, even though he's only a fictional 4-year kid.
#There are tons of parenting blogs run by soccer-moms ranting about Caillou on tons of parenting websites [https://www.huffpost.com/entry/this-is-how-much-people-hate-caillou_n_58d05f98e4b0be71dcf766a9 (this is your typical example of a hate article)]. And if Caillou is so whiny, then why are whining about the character and show? Who's the whiner here?
+
#*They also [[Ignoring Flaws|ignore the flaws]] of the show and Caillou himself.
#They make fun of him all because he's bald and they claim that he has cancer, which is offensive to those who have cancer. The reason why he is bald is because the creators of the show thought that he would be unrecognizable if he had hair.
+
#A lot of them are part of the [[Little Bill Hatedom]], the [[Dora the Explorer Hatedom]], the [[Arthur (TV Series) Fandom and Hatedom|Arthur Hatedom]], and sometimes the [[Upin and Ipin Hatedom]].
#*Arian Foster, who is a hater of the show, said that he can't grow hair because he sucks and his body even knows that he doesn't deserve food or love, which is heartless and not true. And if you were to search "why does caillou have no hair" on Google, at one point it said that Caillou can't grow hair because he sucks, because of the SBNation article! [https://i.imgur.com/vp19XY9.jpg Proof].
+
#*Some of them are even prejudiced against African Americans and Hispanics as a result, and a few even call Little Bill the N-word.
#They make crappy Vyond-styled rants on him. Here's an example of what they sound like:
+
#To add on to the above pointer, similar to the [[SpongeBob SquarePants Fandom (Toxic Portion) and Hatedom|SpongeBob SquarePants Fandom]], they say that any shows that have any slight resemblance to ''Caillou'' are ripoffs, like ''Little Bill'', ''Arthur'', and ''Upin and Ipin''. This doesn't make any sense at all, as all four shows are completely different from each other, not to mention that the Arthur books came out eleven years before the Caillou book series, Little Bill is based off the childhood of Bill Cosby, and the TV adaptation of Arthur came out 1 year before the TV adaptation of Caillou did.
#*''"Caillou? More like f**k you! Oh my God! This show sucks! It's about a bald-headed kid who goes on failure adventures. Caillou is bald cause he cries all the time. Rosie cries too. Mommy and Daddy don't punish Caillou. And Gilbert? Well, no one gives a f*ck about him. Not two or three, either. Not even (insert a bunch of numbers that will make you go insane). Do you know who likes this show? Dora The Explorer! She wants to join the cast, but she can't because she's not made by DHX Media, and do you know who hates this show? African Vulture! She makes grounded videos out of him! So screw Caillou! And screw Dora The Explorer! Kirby is (inserts a bunch of numbers that will make you go insane) times better than Caillou. End of rant. Next rant, (insert awful [https://awfulmovies.miraheze.org movies], [https://crappygames.miraheze.org video games], [https://loathsomecharacters.miraheze.org characters], or [https://terribletvshows.miraheze.org tv shows])." '' -typical GoAnimate-Styled Rant
+
#A handful of them praise the animation, yet some of them hate shows like [[Horrid Henry (TV Show) Fandom and Hatedom|Horrid Henry]], [[Arthur (TV Series) Fandom and Hatedom|Arthur]] and [[Johnny Test Fandom and Hatedom|Johnny Test]], which have similar animation styles.
#They make Facebook communities like ''"I Hate Caillou"'' which is immature.
+
#When it was announced that Chuck E. Cheese would be closing down for good, they freaked out and acted like it was the end of the world, and made pointless Vyond Caillou videos out of it.
 +
#They keep spamming stuff like "Caillou is a good boy!" which not only is false (as he's not a bad boy, but he's not really a good boy either), but it can get annoying.
 +
#They constantly make Caillou Gets Ungrounded videos 24/7, not to mention that in this series, Caillou is probably one of the biggest Gary/Marty/Larry Stus in the world, not even a likable one.
 +
#Some of their OCs they made are recolors of pre-existing characters like Daillou for example. There are even other OCs they made that are either generic, uncreative, or Gary/Marty/Larry Stus and Mary Sues.
 +
#They treat characters such as Boris (Caillou's dad), Toris (Boris' "classic" self), and Classic Caillou like they are punching bags by making grounded videos out of them.
 +
#They are hypocrites. For example, they bash on Caillou Gets Grounded because it's getting old (which is true), but the same can also definitely be said about Caillou Gets Ungrounded.
 +
#A lot them disrespect opinions on Caillou, and rage at people who hate the series.
 +
#Just like the [[Super Mario (Franchise) Fandom (Toxic Portion) and Hatedom|Mario Fandom]] and [[Rainbow Butterfly Unicorn Kitty Fandom and Hatedom|Rainbow Butterfly Unicorn Kitty Fandom]], some of them will always act like they're superior to everything.
 +
#Similar to the [[Sonic the Hedgehog (Franchise) Fandom and Hatedom|Sonic the Hedgehog Fandom]], they portray Caillou as some kind of playboy despite him being '''4 years old''' in the series and ship him with any other female and male character from the show or even another series or franchise. Primary examples include Dora Márquez (both her original counterpart from the series and her Vyond counterpart from the grounded videos) from ''Dora the Explorer'', [[The Loud Sisters (The Loud House) Fandom and Hatedom|Leni Loud]] from ''[[The Loud House Fandom and Hatedom|The Loud House]]'', Gina Degaldo from Vyond, etc.
 +
#*Some of them are also [[Incest Shipping|incest shippers]] since '''they ship Caillou with his own family members such as Rosie, Boris, and Doris, who are all related to each other'''.
 +
#*There are even [[Fangirls|fangirls]] who self-insert themselves with Caillou saying that Caillou is their boyfriend, with the most notable example being a user called "Andreamation// CaillouGetsUngrounded2019", which is very disturbing considering that most of them are either teenagers or adults and Caillou's '''only 4 years old''', making them pedophiles.
 +
#They take parodies of the show way too seriously, like the Caillou the Grownup videos (which according to them, are hate animations) and the grounded videos by Samster5677 and PaperLuigi99, which are only satires of grounded videos.
 +
#*Ironically enough, despite them being against grounded videos, they also get offended by grounded video parodies. One example is a DeviantArt journal of a grounded video in a nutshell in which the Caillou fans took offense to the author of the journal calling Caillou worse than Hitler, even though it was just a joke to poke fun at Vyond users' behavior.
 +
#They proclaim themselves to be a healthy group, yet going by what was stated above, they are far from it.

 +
#They don't just hate this show, they antagonize it like it was Nazi Germany.
 +
#They generalize him being nothing but a spoiled angry brat just because of some episodes, ignoring any good qualities of the titular character and that he didn't always act like this. They also ignore most good qualities of the show.
 +
#They hate Caillou for being immature and bratty yet they themselves act very immature and bratty as well, making them huge hypocrites.
 +
#They make fun of him all because he's bald and they claim that he has cancer, which is offensive to those who have cancer. The reason why he is bald is that the creators of the show thought that he would be unrecognizable if he had hair.
 +
#Hate art, [[Hate Memes|hate memes]], [[Hate Petitions|hate petitions]], [[Hate Lists|hate lists]], and hate parodies such as grounded videos are quite common in the hatedom, which can come off as being repetitive, cringeworthy, and lazy.
 +
#*Not only that, but there are also hate communities of Caillou on [[The Facebook Community|Facebook]], hate accounts on Instagram, and on Reddit, [https://www.reddit.com/r/FuckCaillou/ this subreddit.]
 +
#*Additionally, many [[Moral Guardians]] and Social Justice Warriors write hate articles about Caillou, like [https://www.huffpost.com/entry/this-is-how-much-people-hate-caillou_n_58d05f98e4b0be71dcf766a9 this].
 +
#They make crappy Vyond-styled rants on it.
 
#They make bad "Free Like" videos where all it ever shows is Caillou or Rosie crying and they expect you to laugh and like the video.
 
#They make bad "Free Like" videos where all it ever shows is Caillou or Rosie crying and they expect you to laugh and like the video.
#They bash on the series' movie ''Caillou's Holiday Movie'' a lot, and they think it's the worst Christmas special ever, when it's not, because there are way worse Christmas movies like ''Gummibär: The Yummy Gummy Search For Santa'', ''Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas'', etc. TheTopTens hates this movie ''JUST'' because it's Caillou-related, [https://www.thetoptens.com/worst-animated-movies/ proof]. Many people haven't checked out the movie because it's ''actually'' pretty good. Also, one of the haters (KB336SM909) made a lie on one of his "vyond-styled* rants. he told Caillou got coal in that movie, that is not true, n the movie, he got a spaceship instead of coal. He really needs to rethink his mind!
+
#They hate on any media related to Caillou just for being Caillou-related, especially the movie ''Caillou's Holiday Movie''. [https://www.thetoptens.com/worst-animated-movies/ It even got an entry on this list].
#They call him a rip-off of Charlie Brown which is not true because in Peanuts, Charlie Brown doesn't have parents but in Caillou, he does. There are also several other reasons as to why Caillou is not a Charlie Brown rip-off.
+
#They overlap with the [[Johnny Test Fandom and Hatedom|Johnny Test Hatedom]] as they hate [[Canada Ironic Hatedom|Canada]], [[Teletoon Hatedom|Teletoon]] and [[DHX Media/Wildbrain Hatedom|DHX Media/Wildbrain]] '''just for making both shows'''. Just because they made 2 shows you don't like doesn't make them bad.
#Rosie has a hatebase that is just as bad as Caillou's, she is hated for crying and such, which are dumb reasons to hate a character. As of 2018, they make tons of grounded videos out of her on [[The Vyond Community|Vyond]]. So that Rosie is the grounded target and not Caillou anymore.
+
#*They are even [[Child Ironic Hatedom (Pedophobia)|toxic child haters]] as they (mainly adults) hate children all because of Caillou. Just because of a character you don't like doesn't mean that all children are bad.
#One of the most prevalent "reasons" for the hatedom is ''just because he threw a temper tantrum in the episode "Caillou Joins The Circus."''
+
#Some [[Labeling Something as a "Rip-off"|rip-off believers]] claim that Caillou is a pale copy of Charlie Brown from the ''[[Peanuts (Comic Strip) Fandom|Peanuts]]'' franchise, even though Caillou and Charlie Brown don't have anything in common, besides having little to no hair on their heads.
#A bunch of Enterbots make a bunch of godawful Animated Atrocities notebooks out of him who take cartoons way too seriously, [https://duckyworth.deviantart.com/art/Caillou-Joins-the-Circus-Notepage-482745290 here is an example].
+
#One of the most prevalent "reasons" for the hatedom is ''just because he threw a temper tantrum in the episode "Caillou Joins The Circus".''
#They wish he was ''to be sentenced to capital punishment/death penalty''.
+
#*They could also hate it only because of anything else in Season 1. Just because he was bad in season 1 doesn't mean he never improved his behavior.
#[[TheTopTens Community|TheTopTens]] users make bad top 10 lists out of Caillou like [https://www.thetoptens.com/characters-should-spank-caillou/ ''Top ten characters who should spank Caillou'']'', [https://www.thetoptens.com/reasons-hate-caillou/ Top ten reasons to hate Caillou], [https://www.thetoptens.com/video-games-caillou-would-die/ Top Ten Video Games Caillou Would Die]'' and so on. If they find out that you like him, they will react like this: ''"O o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o oh! F**k you for liking Caillou! F**k u for saying that '<nowiki/>'''The Simpsons'<nowiki/>''' is worse than Caillou. '<nowiki/>'''The Simpsons'<nowiki/>''' is way better that Caillou! F**k you for having a different opinion on him."''
+
#A bunch of [[TheMysteriousMrEnter Fandom and Hatedom|Enterbots]] who take cartoons way too seriously made a bunch of godawful Animated Atrocities notebooks out of him, [https://duckyworth.deviantart.com/art/Caillou-Joins-the-Circus-Notepage-482745290 here is an example].
#They bully people who like the show and character.
+
#They bully people who like the show and character and force them to hate him. This can sometimes go as far as sending [[Death Threats|death threats]] to those that like it.
#Whenever Caillou gets hurt, they will laugh at him and say something like "You deserved it b***h!".
+
#Bad jokes, [https://kinderperfect.com/mommy-drink-caillou-whiny-bitch/ like this one].
#They also hate ''Barney and Friends'', ''Dora the Explorer'', ''Dragon Tales'', ''Yo Gabba Gabba!'', ''Go, Diego, Go!'', ''Oobi'', ''Postman Pat'', ''Handy Manny'', ''JoJo's Circus'' and any other shows meant for younger children when in reality, some can be good.
+
#They are rude to Hélène Desputeaux just because she created the franchise.
#They send out angry messages, destructive criticism and even '''death threats''' to the creators of Caillou (Christine L'Heureux and Hélène Desputeaux).
+
#*''[[Disrespecting the Dead|Additionally, they were happy that Jaclyn Linetsky died all because she was the second voice actor of Caillou.]]''
#The hatebase caused [[The Vyond Community|Vyond]] to remove the non-business themes because of all the grounded videos about not just him, but ''several other shows.''
+
#[[Godwin's Law|They even compare Caillou to Adolf Hitler or Nazis]] to show their hatred. [https://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/beesrc/parents_of_young_children_why_do_you_hate_caillou/ Some of the comments on this thread are a shining example.]
#They treat him as if he came from the pits of hell.
+
#*On top of that, someone even made a character called "Nazi Caillou" in M.U.G.E.N.
#Cringeworthy hateart such as "Lincoln Loud and His Sisters Hate Caillou".
+
# They are responsible for having vandalized both the Caillou Wiki and the Wikipedia article on Caillou numerous times. Just go to their revision histories and you will find proof.
#They make grounded videos, punishment day videos and assaulting videos out of him on [[The Vyond Community|Vyond]] and [[Plotagon Fandom|Plotagon]]. The CGG, CGPD, and CGA videos also makes Boris, his dad, abusive to him unlike the real show.  
+
#This hatedom is the prime example of beating a dead horse: It's 2020 and many still rage about Caillou to this day even though it stopped making episodes in '''2010'''. Compare this to the [[Barney & Friends Hatedom|Barney & Friends hatedom]], which was also toxic, but at least has calmed down since it went on hiatus in 2010.
#Bad jokes, [https://kinderperfect.com/mommy-drink-caillou-whiny-bitch/ like this one]
+
#Some are even rabid fans of PhantomStrider, who only hated the show just because he mentioned it on his "Top 6 Worst Kids Cartoons" list along with the "Top 6 Worst Canadian Cartoons" on his LiveStrider channel.
#They sometimes start protests and force PBS to take the show off the air and go as far as sending '''DEATH THREATS''' to them.
+
#They even wish for him to get brutally tortured, assaulted, and even '''murdered''' when not only is that barbaric considering his young age, but also impossible as he's only a cartoon character. This also proves that they are [[Demonizers|demonizers]] of the show.
#Many of them are from the [[Arthur Fandom]] and the [[Rosie (Caillou) Fandom and Hatedom|Rosie (Caillou) Fandom]].
+
#They leave obnoxious and immature hate comments that get old quickly on anything related to Caillou. [https://loathsomecharacters.miraheze.org/wiki/Special:Log?type=comments&user=&page=Caillou&wpdate=&tagfilter= The page on him on Loathsome Characters Wiki] is a prime example.
#Before Rosie became the grounded target, when Caillou was the target, she was an unlikable Mary Sue to a ton of Vyonders and someone even made some pictures on DeviantArt, like Rosie framing Caillou for breaking the wall, and Rosie laughing at Caillou after he got his butt slapped.
+
#They even call Caillou [["Gay" and "Lesbian" as insults|"gay"]] and use insults like "Gayloo", which is homophobic.
#They bully people who like the show and character and will eventually call you a "retard".
+
#[[Treating Opinions as Facts|They will also claim that "nobody likes Caillou"]] when some people can like it. After all we all have our tastes.
#They also think Caillou is on the naughty list. Even worse, they also think he got coal!
+
#One user on TheTopTens even called it "racist" when there's little to no proof.
#A few people even compare him to Adolf Hitler, and '''some even say he's worse than that evil Nazi. How is being a brat even comparable in the slightest to killing 11 million Jews, Slavs, Romanis and homosexuals? He's just a four-year old fictional character! [https://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/beesrc/parents_of_young_children_why_do_you_hate_caillou/ Some of the comments on this thread provide evidence for the existence of this comparison.]'''
+
#There's [[Hypocrites|hypocrisy]] in these haters in that they hate Caillou for being bossy or a spoiled brat yet they could defend or like other shows that have main characters that have the same issues like ''Max & Ruby'', ''Horrid Henry'', ''The Simpsons'', ''Johnny Test'', ''Dennis & Gnasher'', or ''Peppa Pig''.
#They even think He sucks at piano

# The hatebase is slowly dying and decaying as of 2017, which means no more abuse or hateful memes of him either. Even though the hatedom is still standing, it's not as rabid as it was before back in 2014-2016
+
===Both===
# Many users (including ALR247 (formally known as Go!Thug247) have since stopped making bad videos of Caillou as of 2017. One example is Rosie, who's stopped making grounded videos to [https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfjRWuEl0iZq9TN1TbOpA3A like to her channel].
+
#They are aware of how bad they can be, as well as how both sides are toxic.
# The MLG/YTP (YouTube poop) videos are hilarious.
+
#At least there are some civilized fans and haters of the show who are respectful towards each other.
# Some "Caillou gets grounded"-type videos have at least some effort/thought put into them, [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=apmKlvgG9K4 like this one].
+
#Some understand its source material.
# African Vulture made a '''VERY''' awesome Caillou video that doesn't involve him getting grounded. See it [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNoG970LFPM here].
+
#They do have good points about the show's pros and cons. For the pros, they just like the show because it was a part of their childhood and they have fond memories of the show, which is understandable. The cons, on the other hand, accentuate the mediocre animation in seasons 4 and 5, Caillou being a bad role model, and Boris and Doris rarely punishing Caillou for his behavior.
# The first result you find on Google for "why is Caillou bald" comes from the official Caillou creators and not from a [http://www.chouette-publishing.com/EN/why-caillou-bald rabid hater].
+
 
# Some people hate Caillou reasonably and '''don't''' act like this nor take him so seriously. One example is that some peoples hate the episodes from seasons 1-3 due to their lack of education, showing Caillou with his whiny, tantrum-ridden behavior that often comes without consequences, unlike many baby shows like Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Ni Hao Kai-Lan, etc., which are really educational.
+
===Fandom===
# At least the rabid hate art isn't very gory or bloody.
+
#Like many other fandoms, they can make nice fanart, fan content, OCs, and fanfictions involving the characters.
#At least some of the haters respect opinions.
+
#Some of them don't hate ''Little Bill'', ''Dora the Explorer'', or ''Arthur'', and in fact, some fans of these shows can get along pretty well with the ''Caillou'' fans.
 +
#*Speaking of which, some of them don't believe that ''Little Bill'' and ''Arthur'' are rip-offs of ''Caillou''.
 +
#Some are civil towards parodies and grounded videos made about Caillou.
 +
#They paid their respects to Jaclyn Linetsky, the second voice actor of Caillou, when she passed away.
 +
#Some do understand the flaws of the show and the titular character.
 +
#The fandom wasn't always like this. Until the late 2010s, it was actually healthy and more civilized than the hatedom.
 +
#It's mostly the hatedom that made them look toxic.
 +
#*On top of that, they do have points about Caillou being overhated constantly.
 +
#They are not everywhere unlike the hatedom.
 +
 
 +
===Hatedom===
 +
# Not all of them are moral guardians or hate children and Canada.
 +
# Not all of them were happy that Jaclyn Linetsky died, since there are some who paid their respects to her.
 +
# They are right about the series' flaws mention above.
 +
# Some jokes and parodies about the show are funny such as the MLG and YouTube Poop parodies or ''Caillou The Grownup'' from AOK.
 +
#Even some grounded videos involving Caillou are funny and well-made, mainly the ones from samster5677 and maybe RareYellowBee.
 +
#Some of them actually like the movie, like how some of the [[Dora the Explorer Hatedom|Dora haters]] like ''Dora and the Lost City of Gold'', and like how some of the [[Teen Titans Go! Hatedom|Teen Titans Go! haters]] like ''Teen Titans Go to the Movies''.
 +
#Most of them didn't freak out and rage over the show having a web series (which are basically shorts that are mainly remakes of older episodes) on YouTube, especially since the videos of the web series are georestricted in the US.
 +
#In recent years, some of them have matured and became less toxic and are aware that the show ended in 2010.

Caillou Fandom and Hatedom

Caillou: I'm just a kid who's four. Each day my fandom and hatedom get worse.
Nickname: Fandom:

Type: Preschool Show Fandom and Hatedom

Caillou (pronounced as kai-you or kai-U) is a Canadian educational children's television series that was first shown on Teletoon, with its first episode airing on September 15, 1997; the show later moved to Treehouse TV, with its final episode being shown on that channel on October 3, 2010. The series is based on the books by Hélène Desputeaux. It centers on a 4-year-old boy named Caillou who is fascinated by the world around him. The series made its debut on PBS Kids on September 2000. The series was produced by Cinar (later Cookie Jar Entertainment in 2004), and later Clockwork Zoo for the series' 5th and final season. The series is currently owned by DHX Media. This show has received a bad fandom and even more notorious hatedom because of the titular character having a bad attitude and crying a lot.

Why They're More Spoiled And Bratty Than Caillou

Overall

  1. They both have toxic Vyond fans and haters, Plotagonners, TheTopTenners and Gachatubers.
  2. As expected, they can never handle differing views on the series, especially the haters.
  3. They ignore that the show was based on a book series and probably never read it. They (mostly the fans) even don't know anything about Caillou nor the source material yet they act as they do.
  4. They also come from the Chuck E. Cheese Fandom and Hatedom since there are many Caillou-related videos involving the restaurant and entertainment center.
    • They would also come from the One Punch Man Fandom and Hatedom as Saitama looks like an adult version of Caillou.
  5. They never stop complaining about Caillou in the 1st season of the show (also known as Classic Caillou) for being a brat. He's only a fictional character, guys.
    • On the flip side, they deify his season 4-5 counterpart like he was the son of Jesus Christ, all only because he's a Gary Stu of his earlier self having absolutely zero bad qualities. This makes them hypocrites as they hate his earlier self for having bad characterization yet his later self gets admired to death despite still having bad characterization.
  6. They both give Caillou a really bad name.
  7. Whether they choose to like it or hate it, it's mostly because someone else does, which is circle-jerking.
  8. They both spoiled The Cartoon Community.
  9. A lot of them are either manchildren, little kids, Internet Trolls, or nostalgiatards.

Fandom

  1. They overpraise the show like it's the best TV show or cartoon ever.
    • They also admire the titular character to death like he's the second coming of Jesus, even though he's only a fictional 4-year kid.
    • They also ignore the flaws of the show and Caillou himself.
  2. A lot of them are part of the Little Bill Hatedom, the Dora the Explorer Hatedom, the Arthur Hatedom, and sometimes the Upin and Ipin Hatedom.
    • Some of them are even prejudiced against African Americans and Hispanics as a result, and a few even call Little Bill the N-word.
  3. To add on to the above pointer, similar to the SpongeBob SquarePants Fandom, they say that any shows that have any slight resemblance to Caillou are ripoffs, like Little Bill, Arthur, and Upin and Ipin. This doesn't make any sense at all, as all four shows are completely different from each other, not to mention that the Arthur books came out eleven years before the Caillou book series, Little Bill is based off the childhood of Bill Cosby, and the TV adaptation of Arthur came out 1 year before the TV adaptation of Caillou did.
  4. A handful of them praise the animation, yet some of them hate shows like Horrid Henry, Arthur and Johnny Test, which have similar animation styles.
  5. When it was announced that Chuck E. Cheese would be closing down for good, they freaked out and acted like it was the end of the world, and made pointless Vyond Caillou videos out of it.
  6. They keep spamming stuff like "Caillou is a good boy!" which not only is false (as he's not a bad boy, but he's not really a good boy either), but it can get annoying.
  7. They constantly make Caillou Gets Ungrounded videos 24/7, not to mention that in this series, Caillou is probably one of the biggest Gary/Marty/Larry Stus in the world, not even a likable one.
  8. Some of their OCs they made are recolors of pre-existing characters like Daillou for example. There are even other OCs they made that are either generic, uncreative, or Gary/Marty/Larry Stus and Mary Sues.
  9. They treat characters such as Boris (Caillou's dad), Toris (Boris' "classic" self), and Classic Caillou like they are punching bags by making grounded videos out of them.
  10. They are hypocrites. For example, they bash on Caillou Gets Grounded because it's getting old (which is true), but the same can also definitely be said about Caillou Gets Ungrounded.
  11. A lot them disrespect opinions on Caillou, and rage at people who hate the series.
  12. Just like the Mario Fandom and Rainbow Butterfly Unicorn Kitty Fandom, some of them will always act like they're superior to everything.
  13. Similar to the Sonic the Hedgehog Fandom, they portray Caillou as some kind of playboy despite him being 4 years old in the series and ship him with any other female and male character from the show or even another series or franchise. Primary examples include Dora Márquez (both her original counterpart from the series and her Vyond counterpart from the grounded videos) from Dora the Explorer, Leni Loud from The Loud House, Gina Degaldo from Vyond, etc.
    • Some of them are also incest shippers since they ship Caillou with his own family members such as Rosie, Boris, and Doris, who are all related to each other.
    • There are even fangirls who self-insert themselves with Caillou saying that Caillou is their boyfriend, with the most notable example being a user called "Andreamation// CaillouGetsUngrounded2019", which is very disturbing considering that most of them are either teenagers or adults and Caillou's only 4 years old, making them pedophiles.
  14. They take parodies of the show way too seriously, like the Caillou the Grownup videos (which according to them, are hate animations) and the grounded videos by Samster5677 and PaperLuigi99, which are only satires of grounded videos.
    • Ironically enough, despite them being against grounded videos, they also get offended by grounded video parodies. One example is a DeviantArt journal of a grounded video in a nutshell in which the Caillou fans took offense to the author of the journal calling Caillou worse than Hitler, even though it was just a joke to poke fun at Vyond users' behavior.
  15. They proclaim themselves to be a healthy group, yet going by what was stated above, they are far from it.

Hatedom

An example of your typical "Caillou Gets Grounded" video made by the Vyond community.
  1. They don't just hate this show, they antagonize it like it was Nazi Germany.
  2. They generalize him being nothing but a spoiled angry brat just because of some episodes, ignoring any good qualities of the titular character and that he didn't always act like this. They also ignore most good qualities of the show.
  3. They hate Caillou for being immature and bratty yet they themselves act very immature and bratty as well, making them huge hypocrites.
  4. They make fun of him all because he's bald and they claim that he has cancer, which is offensive to those who have cancer. The reason why he is bald is that the creators of the show thought that he would be unrecognizable if he had hair.
  5. Hate art, hate memes, hate petitions, hate lists, and hate parodies such as grounded videos are quite common in the hatedom, which can come off as being repetitive, cringeworthy, and lazy.
    • Not only that, but there are also hate communities of Caillou on Facebook, hate accounts on Instagram, and on Reddit, this subreddit.
    • Additionally, many Moral Guardians and Social Justice Warriors write hate articles about Caillou, like this.
  6. They make crappy Vyond-styled rants on it.
  7. They make bad "Free Like" videos where all it ever shows is Caillou or Rosie crying and they expect you to laugh and like the video.
  8. They hate on any media related to Caillou just for being Caillou-related, especially the movie Caillou's Holiday Movie. It even got an entry on this list.
  9. They overlap with the Johnny Test Hatedom as they hate Canada, Teletoon and DHX Media/Wildbrain just for making both shows. Just because they made 2 shows you don't like doesn't make them bad.
    • They are even toxic child haters as they (mainly adults) hate children all because of Caillou. Just because of a character you don't like doesn't mean that all children are bad.
  10. Some rip-off believers claim that Caillou is a pale copy of Charlie Brown from the Peanuts franchise, even though Caillou and Charlie Brown don't have anything in common, besides having little to no hair on their heads.
  11. One of the most prevalent "reasons" for the hatedom is just because he threw a temper tantrum in the episode "Caillou Joins The Circus".
    • They could also hate it only because of anything else in Season 1. Just because he was bad in season 1 doesn't mean he never improved his behavior.
  12. A bunch of Enterbots who take cartoons way too seriously made a bunch of godawful Animated Atrocities notebooks out of him, here is an example.
  13. They bully people who like the show and character and force them to hate him. This can sometimes go as far as sending death threats to those that like it.
  14. Bad jokes, like this one.
  15. They are rude to Hélène Desputeaux just because she created the franchise.
  16. They even compare Caillou to Adolf Hitler or Nazis to show their hatred. Some of the comments on this thread are a shining example.
    • On top of that, someone even made a character called "Nazi Caillou" in M.U.G.E.N.
  17. They are responsible for having vandalized both the Caillou Wiki and the Wikipedia article on Caillou numerous times. Just go to their revision histories and you will find proof.
  18. This hatedom is the prime example of beating a dead horse: It's 2020 and many still rage about Caillou to this day even though it stopped making episodes in 2010. Compare this to the Barney & Friends hatedom, which was also toxic, but at least has calmed down since it went on hiatus in 2010.
  19. Some are even rabid fans of PhantomStrider, who only hated the show just because he mentioned it on his "Top 6 Worst Kids Cartoons" list along with the "Top 6 Worst Canadian Cartoons" on his LiveStrider channel.
  20. They even wish for him to get brutally tortured, assaulted, and even murdered when not only is that barbaric considering his young age, but also impossible as he's only a cartoon character. This also proves that they are demonizers of the show.
  21. They leave obnoxious and immature hate comments that get old quickly on anything related to Caillou. The page on him on Loathsome Characters Wiki is a prime example.
  22. They even call Caillou "gay" and use insults like "Gayloo", which is homophobic.
  23. They will also claim that "nobody likes Caillou" when some people can like it. After all we all have our tastes.
  24. One user on TheTopTens even called it "racist" when there's little to no proof.
  25. There's hypocrisy in these haters in that they hate Caillou for being bossy or a spoiled brat yet they could defend or like other shows that have main characters that have the same issues like Max & Ruby, Horrid Henry, The Simpsons, Johnny Test, Dennis & Gnasher, or Peppa Pig.

Redeeming Qualities

Both

  1. They are aware of how bad they can be, as well as how both sides are toxic.
  2. At least there are some civilized fans and haters of the show who are respectful towards each other.
  3. Some understand its source material.
  4. They do have good points about the show's pros and cons. For the pros, they just like the show because it was a part of their childhood and they have fond memories of the show, which is understandable. The cons, on the other hand, accentuate the mediocre animation in seasons 4 and 5, Caillou being a bad role model, and Boris and Doris rarely punishing Caillou for his behavior.

Fandom

  1. Like many other fandoms, they can make nice fanart, fan content, OCs, and fanfictions involving the characters.
  2. Some of them don't hate Little Bill, Dora the Explorer, or Arthur, and in fact, some fans of these shows can get along pretty well with the Caillou fans.
    • Speaking of which, some of them don't believe that Little Bill and Arthur are rip-offs of Caillou.
  3. Some are civil towards parodies and grounded videos made about Caillou.
  4. They paid their respects to Jaclyn Linetsky, the second voice actor of Caillou, when she passed away.
  5. Some do understand the flaws of the show and the titular character.
  6. The fandom wasn't always like this. Until the late 2010s, it was actually healthy and more civilized than the hatedom.
  7. It's mostly the hatedom that made them look toxic.
    • On top of that, they do have points about Caillou being overhated constantly.
  8. They are not everywhere unlike the hatedom.

Hatedom

  1. Not all of them are moral guardians or hate children and Canada.
  2. Not all of them were happy that Jaclyn Linetsky died, since there are some who paid their respects to her.
  3. They are right about the series' flaws mention above.
  4. Some jokes and parodies about the show are funny such as the MLG and YouTube Poop parodies or Caillou The Grownup from AOK.
  5. Even some grounded videos involving Caillou are funny and well-made, mainly the ones from samster5677 and maybe RareYellowBee.
  6. Some of them actually like the movie, like how some of the Dora haters like Dora and the Lost City of Gold, and like how some of the Teen Titans Go! haters like Teen Titans Go to the Movies.
  7. Most of them didn't freak out and rage over the show having a web series (which are basically shorts that are mainly remakes of older episodes) on YouTube, especially since the videos of the web series are georestricted in the US.
  8. In recent years, some of them have matured and became less toxic and are aware that the show ended in 2010.

According to that SBNation article, on the bottom line, it is not okay to bully someone, but it is okay to bully Caillou?

They're unaware that threatening them worse than Hitler, and A-Logging on him only makes them more whiny, annoying and even barbaric than Caillou himself, so, the conclusion is, Caillou doesn't do what his haters do.
