The Puppet segments were a part of the regular episodes in season 2 & season 3 that were used from 2000 to 2003, but they have not been on the show, since.none of the puppet segments have official titles, so they aren't considered episodes instead all of them combined are 1 episode. There are 4 puppets that are in the puppet segments : Gilbert, Caillou's pet cat (Gilbert also appears in the regular episodes). Rexy, Caillou 's dinosaur. Teddy, Caillou's teddy bear, and Deedee, a squirrel.
Most of the puppet segments take place in the backyard or in Caillou's room. Gilbert, Rexy and Teddy appear in almost all the puppet segments while Deedee is only appears in some. When the puppet segments were on the show their was usually one puppet segment day the show was on and there was one less episode then there is today. Sometimes the episodes shown were related to what was shown that day in the puppet segments, for example, one of the episodes on the show involved Halloween the puppet segments did too. The puppets do talk in the puppet segments but not in the regular episodes, Gilbert also looks very different then he does in the regular episodes because the characters in the puppet segments aren't cartoons they are real puppets. The puppet segments are considered neither canon nor crescent fresh.
Although the puppets aren't on the show, Gilbert, Rexy, and Teddy still appear, Gilbert as a real cat and the other two as inanimate objects.
