They Cancelled 'Caillou'
Published Jan 06, 2021Everyone seems to hate it. Its merch lines the aisles of Dollaramas across the country. And it looks like shit. But somehow the children's show Caillou was on the air for two full decades. Finally, in 2021, PBS has said enough is enough and cancelled that bald boy for good.
PBS KIDS announced that it would be saying farewell to Caillou with a pair of tweets, both of which caused mass rejoicing:
New episodes of Caillou had not even been made in the last decade. Instead, this is simply PBS announcing it will no longer air reruns. The news caused mass rejoicing from the Twittersphere, including the Iron Sheik:

You know this little weasel Caillou is gonna do a podcast now.— Jeff O'Neill (@odognine2) January 6, 2021
Of course, nothing ever really dies. A Caillou web series, which is a totally different entity from the PBS show, is still going strong on YouTube and is currently in its fourth season. Perhaps it's further proof that cancel culture isn't a real thing.
