Why is Caillou Bald?

Good Question and one that is asked often. There are a few answers we have and one is that the creators did not want Caillou to have a particular type of hair style and rather no hair like everyone is when we are born.

Here is the official  reason why Caillou is bald from the publishing company that created Caillou


Caillou stands for all children. He doesn’t have curly blond hair, a carrot-top, brown hair, glasses, or ethnic features, because he represents all children. We wanted to make Caillou universal so every child could identify with him. And they do! Caillou’s baldness may make him different, but we hope it’s helping children understand that being different isn’t just okay, it’s normal.
