Episode Guide »
Olive Muddle: Grandma brings over some delicious treats for the kids to try - only they're full of olives. Caillou doesn't like olives, but he doesn't know how to tell Grandma he doesn't like her cherished dishes...until...he can't stand to eat another one! Caillou blurts out the truth and realizes Grandma isn't upset - everyone has likes and dislikes - even her! Educational Objective: The importance of honesty; communicating with others. Caillou's Clay Play: Caillou and Leo accidentally break Rosie's clay poodle while playing. Instead of telling the truth, they try to make another clay poodle for Rosie...but end up with a few misshapen oddities - e.g. a lionoodle and an elephantoodle. When Caillou and Leo finally confess, it turns out Rosie is equally happy with her new and unique clay creatures. Educational Objective: Realizing it's better to tell the truth after damaging someone's property. The Lightning Ball Express: Mrs. Howard brings over an old train set for Caillou to play with. Caillou has much fun with it...until he breaks the train! Instead of telling Mrs. Howard, Caillou attempts to hide from her. When his rouse fails, Caillou confesses to breaking the train and is surprised to learn that Mrs. Howard's son broke it many a time as a child...and she knows how to fix it! Educational Objective: It's always better to tell the truth.
