Caillou's parents become shadows.


Caillou is in bed. Doris and Boris say good night and to not let the bed bugs bite. Caillou opens his eyes as soon as his parents leave. He shines a flashlight on his toys and the window. He is frightened because he thinks he's seeing bed bugs! Doris comes in and aces what's wrong. Caillou explains about the bugs, but she tells him that they were just shadows. Caillou is also worried about a "scratchy monster," but Doris tells him monsters aren't real. Suddenly, Caillou gets up, makes a mobile clanking sound, and something falls on his head. He screams for his Daddy's help. Boris comes in and he tells him that it was only his toy snake that fell on his head. Caillou thought that there was a flying monster and the scratchy monster, and it's in his room. Boris also tells him that he probably just imagined he heard something, and he can't find anything, but Caillou also thought that the scratchy monster, and it makes some scratchy sounds when he makes some them. Boris also suggests that Caillou listen to a music box to drown out the "monster" sounds. Just moments after, the music stops and the sound is still heard. Caillou screams, "Mommy, Daddy, the scratchy monster! He's got me! Help!". Caillou's parents enter the room as they become shadows. They turn on the lights, and see that Caillou's pajamas are stuck to the bed because the "scratchy monster had trapped him". Boris explains that the wind was making the tree branch hit the window, causing the "scratchy monster noise". Suddenly, there's another strange noise, but it is only Gilbert who was stuck in a bag underneath Caillou's bed. Caillou says that he hopes there won't be any more scary sounds. Comforted with Teddy, Caillou is no longer afraid.
