Caillou is no more.
After more than two decades on air, PBS Kids has cancelled the Canadian TV show Caillou, and people have flocked to Twitter to rejoice in the news.
The series, which got its start in Canada in 1997, premiered in the United States in 2000. Parents have been petitioning against the show for years, lobbying that the main character is not an ideal role model for kids, saying Caillou is whiny and mean.
