    Beautiful Holiday Movie, December 5, 2005

    This review is from: Caillou’s Holiday Movie (DVD)

    This DVD came with bonus extras (games, etc) but I am only reviewing the movie as that is what I have watched; 12 times since we opened it 2 days ago to be exact. My son loves Caillou. So it was natural that he would enjoy this movie. As a matter of fact, he loves it and has become quite the remote control/TV/DVD hog since having this movie. The other reviewer is correct as the movie is all animation without the puppet segments. But you know what I prefer it that way. My son always mistook Rexy and the other puppets as interruptions and they never held his attention for too long. The movie has very beautiful songs and truly gets in the spirit of Christmas, giving, love, family, friendship, etc. I do not want to spoil the movie for others but it is kid friendly packed with morals. Now I am a sociologist so I may be just a bit biased but I absolutely loooove how the creators added how other cultures in the world celebrate Christmas not just the U.S. (Puerto Rico, Germany, Austria, Mexico etc.) They also gave a bit of historical background (How the Christmas tree came about, etc) This is a nice touch for anyone who shares a different background or just would like their children to know how other little children celebrate Christmas! This is the best Caillou ever. Feliz Navidad!

    Great Story, Special Features Lacking, November 14, 2003

    This review is from: Caillou’s Holiday Movie (DVD)

    Looking at “Caillou’s Holiday Movie,” it’s obvious that the staff of the show was going for someting a little different. Stories in the show itself are only an average of five minutes long, but this is a full ninety-minute presentation.

    The writers and animators seem to have been successful and the result is a great story with beautiful musical interludes that kids will enjoy watching. There’s a lot to be learned about holiday traditions from around the world, much of it coming from a twelve days of Christmas calendar that Caillou receives as present from Daddy. Although there are no puppet segments, most of the best characters are present in the story, including some favorite guest characters that are nice references to past stories. Fans of Rosie will also enjoy the movie and the special way in which she surprises everyone in Caillou’s family.

    If buying the DVD, note that while the story is good, the special features really aren’t much to cheer about. The Caillou interview bonus doesn’t actually relate to the movie, but is actually more of a cute filler segment in which Sarah attempts an interview with Caillou for her school, but can’t get straight answers out of Caillou and then experiences technical difficulties. The “singalongs” are simply cut from the movie, they don’t even have lyrics at the bottom of the screen or close-captioning to follow along. Finally, the promotion of “six Caillou challenges” is somewhat miselading. There are a two games including, each with three levels, for a total of six “challenges.”
