Big Brother Caillou is an episode from Season 1 of “Caillou”.
The episode begins with Caillou and his pregnant Mommy in the backyard. Caillou asks if she is coming today and Mommy says she is going to go to the hospital later that day, and that his grandmother will look after him. Caillou's Mommy and Caillou's Daddy leave for the hospital and Grandma comes to watch Caillou. Caillou can't wait to meet Rosie for the first time. Soon, the car appears in the driveway and Caillou excitedly runs for the door. Mommy shows Caillou his brand-new baby sister, Rosie, but before Caillou can get a good look, Grandma runs over to see the new baby, saying "Oh, she's just beautiful! She's absolutely adorable!" Mommy and Daddy reply with "Isn't she gorgeous?", "She's my special girl!", and Rosie started crying.
Caillou is grumpy and jealous that no one is paying attention to him, thinking they only care about Rosie now. He goes to his room, sits on his bed, and then throws his ragdoll onto the floor in anger, wanting nothing to do with it anymore.
Later, a jealous Caillou walks sadly into Rosie's room where Caillou's Daddy and Rosie are in a rocking chair. When Daddy asked Caillou if he'd like to rock the baby, Caillou responds with a huge "No!" Daddy gets up and sets Rosie on a changing table so he can get a diaper from the linen closet. Meanwhile, Caillou scoots a chair over to the changing table and climbs onto it. Caillou grabs Rosie and kisses her, and for a second it looks like he is making up with her...until he suddenly grabs Rosie's cheek. Daddy hears the loud shrieks and sees Caillou holding Rosie down, his hand still on Rosie's cheek. He scoops up the bawling infant and cradles it until it stops crying. Caillou's Daddy asked why he did that. Caillou told him he didn't like Rosie because she didn't play with him. Caillou's Daddy tells Caillou that Rosie is too little to play, and tells him about the good things about being a big brother and Caillou helps change Rosie's diaper and he began to like Rosie more, he even got to hold her!
