A New CG ‘Caillou’ is Being Re-Animated by WildBrain and Peacock

The little bald boy is coming back in CG! WildBrain and NBCUniversal’s streamer Peacock are producing a new 52 x 11-minute Caillou series. Peacock will also premiere five previously announced 44-minute Caillou specials.

Accoring to WildBrain, the new Caillou series continues to explore the daily life of an imaginative and curious four-year-old boy, who “is learning and growing a little more each day and doesn’t usually get things right on the first try, despite his best efforts.” Through the support and encouragement of his parents, friends and neighbors—as well as through adventures in his very active imagination — Caillou reaches new understandings and discoveries as he learns to never give up and keep pursuing his goals until he succeeds.

Caillou is getting ready to entertain kids in a new CG-animated series produced by WildBrain.

“We’re delighted to join with Peacock to expand the Caillou universe,” said Josh Scherba, President of WildBrain. “This is yet another example of how we’re reinvigorating treasured brands from our evergreen library. For over 25 years, preschoolers have connected with Caillou because they can see themselves in these highly relatable stories. Caillou is a kid just like them, facing everyday problems and learning about the world around him. With a new look and stories where Caillou explores the world through wonderful flights of imagination, Caillou is better than ever. We’re confident that today’s kids—and their families—are going to love it.”

“We are overjoyed to work with the team at WildBrain for a new CG-animated version of the beloved Caillou series that won over the hearts of young audiences from around the world,” said Kristofer Updike, VP of Kids Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “Peacock is committed to enriching the minds of a new generation to promote emotional expression, creative thinking and dreaming big. We can’t wait for parents and their kids to see these pivotal themes come to life in Caillou and in all of Peacock’s kids’ offerings.”

In addition to the new series, WildBrain and Peacock are also presenting five family specials featuring the four-year-old boy.

The five new Caillou  are billed as preschool-friendly event viewing throughout the year: Christmas, Halloween, celebration of family, summer vacation and even tackling the important topic of bullying. Each story will push further into the rich imaginative potential of Caillou’s inner world than ever before. By telling bigger stories, we get a better understanding of Caillou’s struggles and victories, with the ultimate satisfaction of knowing things are always wrapped up in a happy ending.

Caillou was originally introduced in 1997, based on a series of bestselling children’s books inspired by the work of French child psychiatrist Dr. Françoise Dolto. WildBrain’s Caillou has been viewed in over 140 countries worldwide. The existing Caillou content library of 234 classic 2D episodes and five digital-first seasons remains popular on streaming and broadcast platforms worldwide. On WildBrain’s own premium AVOD network on YouTube, WildBrain Spark, Caillou is the number-one property, having garnered more than 73 billion minutes of watch time in 21 languages. WildBrain manages global distribution rights for all Caillou content.
