From the publisher's web site:
Caillou stands for all children. He doesn't have curly blond hair, a carrot-top, brown hair, glasses, or ethnic features, because he represents all children. We wanted to make Caillou universal so every child could identify with him. And they do! Caillou's baldness may make him different, but we hope it's helping children understand that being different isn't just okay, it's normal.

Also, the charlie brown effect! Yellow shirt, no hair, dog... coincidence?
Didn't know the answer to this question, but as a nurse unfamiliar with this particular cartoon character my first thought was that he must have cancer and is getting chemo. Curious to find out the real reason, I checked the other answers and thought they were very interesting. Apparantly the publishers really thought this one through.

Why do some babies stay bald for so long?My daughter is 14 months and is still mostly bald on top. My other two children had a full head of hair. What causes this?
