** Most of "Caillou is Getting Older". He finds a dead bird[[note]]We also get a [[SarcasmMode lovely]] image of a dead bird, uncensored. Though it is BloodlessCarnage.[[/note]]. Daddy tells him that the bird died because it got too old. That turned out to be a bad idea, as Caillou started getting paranoid that he would die at any minute. Unfortunately for him, [[ColdTurkeysAreEverywhere there was Daddy's eyes getting bad (he told Caillou he might be getting old), and Sarah having a birthday and being one whole year older.]] A kid being paranoid about death is pretty dark for a kid cartoon.[[note]]This episode was banned in the USA though, so it's averted in said country, but not in the other countries that still air banned episodes of the show.[[/note]]

* NotAllowedToGrowUp: Caillou, if perhaps allowed to grow up a bit, experiences a very dragged-out childhood. In the earliest books from the 1990s, he is a baby. In the very early installments of the television series, he is 3. From then on, he is officially 4, as stated in the theme song, "''I'm just a kid who's 4 / Each day I grow some more!''" However, in later seasons he takes more steps into school and eventually starts attending playschool and mixing more with older kids. And that's where things stand as of 2017.

* InnocentSwearing: The banned episode "Caillou's Crossword" uses the word stupid to teach children about cursing. After Caillou and Leo hear an older boy use the word, they call Clementine the word and it upsets her. Caillou later uses it around Rosie and she learns the word. Caillou's mom teaches him that it's a bad word and he apologizes to Clementine.
