Caillou

Imagine! (#116)

Today, Caillou discovers something inside him that makes ordinary things fun: imagination! Unable to fly his kite on a windless day, Caillou stares at the clouds and finds they're really wagons, balloons and dinosaurs, if you look at them just right. When rain grounds his kite another day, Caillou and Dad turn the living room into a pirate ship -- with Gilbert shaking the dormant kite like a lively fish. It's also fun playing with his friend George, who no one can see but Caillou. Meanwhile, the puppets fall into individual reveries about singing, dancing, and conducting an orchestra -- then realize they can imagine together, and make a full concert of it!
