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."
This DVD is over 90 minutes long featuring 8 new songs.
Special features include:
*animated interview with Caillou

I admit, I'm not a big fan of Caillou as an adult. I think the illustrations are simplistic and flat, and Caillou is usually a whiny brat. So, it was with a little trepidation that I bought this holiday DVD last year. I have to say, though, that it's a fine holiday movie and much more engaging than the show. Caillou doesn't whine, but appears curious and thoughful.
My son doesn't use the Bonus material, but really enjoys Caillou's first feature-length holiday movie.
