* There seems to be such a difference in Gilbert's personality between the animated segments and the puppet segments. Animated he's very normal and catlike, puppet is wise and knowledgeable.
** Simple. His owner isn't supposed to know that he has some human-like qualities.
* What's with the Charlie Brown Haircut on Caillou? I mean no one else has hair like that. Or a lack of it for that matter.
** Some kids are just bald, or prefer their hair to be that way.
** WordOfGod confirms that he was originally planned to be a young baby.
** This might make me a terrible person, but as a little kid I assumed he had cancer and was dying.
** According to the publishers,[[http://www.chouette-publishing.com/about-caillou/frequently-asked-questions/why-caillou-bald Caillou is bald because he represents all children.]]
*** Yep because we are all feminine white boys.
*** It's impossible to have him represents all races, also their had to give a personality would you like it better if he was bland?
** Running the risk of an OutsideJoke here, but I thought the art style in ''Caillou'' was detailed enough to distinguish Charlie Brown's do (blond hair with a buzz cut) from actual baldness.
