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!

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."

When winter comes to Caillou's house, this curious 4 year old tackles all kinds of big boy activities like helping Daddy shovel snow, making holiday presents for his family and even discovering how other little boys and girls around the world celebrate the season.

This DVD is over 90 minutes long featuring 8 new songs.

Special features include:

*animated interview with Caillou

*2 holiday songs

*'Twas the Night Before Christmas Story

*Six Caillou challenges

Languages: English, French, and Spanish

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.

Five stars for the film, but two for this DVD release at best. If you have the original DVD release of this film or can get it, then there is nothing worth bothering with here. No closed-captions or subtitles, no French or Spanish language tracks like the original disc, and while this DVD has the Caillou interview and two sing-alongs that were originally included, it's missing the six games found on the original. For something billed as being released celebrate Caillou's 25th anniversary, this is a really poor showing.

My children cannot get enough of this movie! Every year they start asking to watch it as soon as they see Christmas decorations appearing around town, and they're still asking for it by spring. I know that a lot of parents don't like Caillou because he whines; honestly, though, I think Caillou is respectful of his elders, and the show is a good example of positive family values and showing kindness to each other. Caillou and Rosie also have a loving and respectful relationship with their grandparents, and they also learn about kindness to elderly neighbors as well as those who live in nursing homes. Along with educational adventures, I think the show portrays nice character traits such as kindness, respect, and friendship. This movie is fun and festive, and it gives some great historical accounts while building a child's excitement and awe of the Christmas season. I wish new Caillou shows and movies were in production!
