March 10, 2010

Summary: This episode has four segments.  In between each segment are puppet scenes and people scenes.   These scenes reinforce the theme of the episode.  I am only reviewing the Caillou scenes.

Segment 1:  Caillou’s mom has a business meeting to attend.  She asks Caillou to help his dad take care of things while she’s gone.  Caillou helps take care of his sister Rosie, since his dad does not know her normal routine.

Segment 2:  Caillou does not want to  share his toys with Rosie.  Rosie begins to cry, so Caillou shares so he won’t get in trouble.  Caillou complains to his dad that Rosie takes all of his toys.  His dad explains that Rosie is little and he should play with her and share.  Caillou makes Rosie a fort in hopes that she will play by herself.  They end up playing hide and seek and have fun.

Segment 3:  Caillou, Rosie, and Dad are driving.  Caillou and Rosie are not getting along.  The car breaks down and Rosie begins to cry.  Caillou comforts Rosie.  The car is towed to a garage where it is fixed.  They all make it to the restaurant for a meal with Mom.

Segment 4:  Caillou and Rosie spend the night at their grandparents house.  Caillou and Rosie argue about who gets to sleep on the top bunk.  Caillou is given permission to sleep on the top bunk, but when he gets up there he is nervous about sleeping there.  He ends up sleeping on the bottom bunk with Rosie.
