The Loud House is a 2016 animated television sitcom series created by Chris Savino and airs on Nickelodeon.
Set in the fictional city of Royal Woods, Michigan, The Loud House centers on Lincoln Loud, an 11-year-old boy with ten sisters. His siblings are bossy eldest child Lori, ditzy yet beautiful Leni, aspiring rock star Luna, aspiring comedian Luan, athletic Lynn, gloomy goth Lucy, polar-opposite twins tomboy Lana and girly Lola, child prodigy Lisa, and baby Lily.
Why It Rocks
- Incredibly witty humor, jokes, idioms, satires and slapsticks.
- Likable characters with unique personalities.
- Great animation with an interesting comic-esque style.
- Great soundtrack with a catchy theme song and awesome and touching songs such as "That's What Christmas is All About" and "Lincoln Loud, The Best Dang Brother Anywhere Around" a song where the sisters showed their love and how much they care for their brother.
- Tons of cultural references, including references from Peanuts.
- Awesome voice acting.
- In every title card, the "Skater Dudes" font is used, which looks very cool, as well as having comic book-style panels.
- Clyde is a very nice and likable pal to Lincoln, especially when Lincoln needs him around.
- Some endings have really funny moments.
- Good morals and lessons for kids, teenagers, and adults alike.
- Lincoln is still grateful for having a large family, which is a positive message for other large families.
- It uses the slice-of-life formula very well.
- Lincoln’s relationship with his sisters is relatable and accurate, even if they sometimes don't get along.
- The moments where Leni's clumsiness is shown are hilarious and memorable.
- Overuse of toilet humor, which is annoying.
- It has its share of bad episodes like "Brawl in the Family", "It's a Loud, Loud, Loud, Loud House" and "One of the Boys".
- Some episodes involve child abuse, like the episode "No Such Luck", where Lincoln gets kicked out of his house and has to sleep in the rain, with his family later publicly humiliating him by forcing him to wear a squirrel suit. After heavy fan backlash, the show's writers were forced to tone down the mean-spirited vibes in later episodes.
- It has characters sometimes twerking, which is something that is extremely inappropriate (and incredibly disgusting in terms of children doing it) for a family-friendly show.
- It can get pretty mean-spirited sometimes.
- Some endings come out as flat, generic, mediocre or just plain bad.
- Luan Loud’s character is flanderized from a mischievous, fun-loving girl to a sadistic, Joker-esque prankster in every April Fool's Day-themed episode. Fortunately, she finally gets a taste of her own medicine in "Fool Me Twice".
- The show was based on Chris Savino's own childhood.
- Chris Savino was fired in late 2017 after he was revealed to have sexually harassed numerous female Nickelodeon employees, with Kyle Marshall replacing him as the show's lead director.
- Savino was the second Nickelodeon employee to be fired for sexual harassment after John Kricfalusi, the creator of The Ren & Stimpy Show.
- Lincoln has been voiced by three different voice actors: Sean Ryan Fox voiced Lincoln in the pilot episode "Bathroom Break", Grant Palmer voiced Lincoln in the first season from "Left in the Dark" to "A Fair to Remember", and Collin Dean voiced Lincoln from "One of the Boys" onward.
- Clyde's voice actor Caleel Harris left the series during Season 3. He will be replaced by Andre Robinson.
