    Many parents even argue that the show is a bad influence on kids because of how bratty Caillou is.

    Of course, not everyone feels that way, and the replies under the PBS Kids announcement is also filled with support for the show.

    @PBSKIDS I'll never understand the Caillou haters. It's a lovely show, with relevant stories, and I'm grateful for the legacy it leaves.
