WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Fun and Games with Caillou” is a new compilation disc about grown-ups making Preschoolers play outside. Sharing and friendship are tackled throughout all of the episodes, but everyone knows where it’s heading. Caillou makes some more friends that don’t show up ever again. That guy must have one terrible personality. Just kidding, he’s only a kid.
Caillou still has that whiny Charlie Brown thing going on. There are parents that have learned how to mimic the whine down to an art. Especially, since their own children have now taken to whining for their mothers with the same tonal precision. I heard what the kid sounds like in the original French language tracks, so I’m not sure why they turned up the annoying for American audiences. It’s one of life’s mysteries, I guess.
The DVD comes with coloring pages and activities as the special features. The A/V Quality is pretty strong for a foreign kids’ show. The Dolby track is supportive with its surround design. However, the transfer feels flat when compared to the PBS HD broadcast. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to parents of young kids.
