The Loud House is an American animated television series created by Chris Savino for Nickelodeon.[1] The series revolves around the chaotic suburban everyday life of a boy named Lincoln Loud, who survives as the only son in a large family of eleven children. It premiered on May 2, 2016.

The series originated from a two-minute short film created by Savino in 2013 for the annual Animated Shorts Program as a pitch to the network, and was greenlighted for production the following year. The series is based on Savino's childhood growing up in a large family and its animation is largely influenced by newspaper comic strips.


Set in the fictional city of Royal Woods, Michigan (based on Royal Oak, Michigan), The Loud House centers on Lincoln Loud, an 11-year-old boy[2] 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.


Clockwise from left: Luan, Leni, Lori, Lincoln, Clyde, Luna, Lynn, Lucy, Lisa, Lola, Lily, and Lana.

In other languages



The Loud House became the number-one children's animated series on television within its first month on the air.[7] Throughout May 2016, it received an average of 68% more viewers in its target audience of children aged 6–11 than broadcasts on Nickelodeon in May of the previous year.[8] It replaced SpongeBob SquarePants as the network's highest-rated program in June 2016, holding an average Nielsen rating of 4.9 among the 2–11 demographic at the time.[9]

The Los Angeles Times cited The Loud House as a major factor in maintaining Nickelodeon's position as the highest-rated children's network in summer 2016.[10] During the show's fourth week of premieres, Cyma Zarghami announced that it was continuing to draw more viewers than any other program on the channel.[11]

The show's highest-rated episode, with 2.28 million viewers upon its premiere, is "Two Boys and a Baby."[12] This was the first episode to air after it was announced that Howard and Harold McBride would be debuting on the program. The first episode of The Loud House shown at prime time, "11 Louds a Leapin'," was the seventh most-viewed telecast across all U.S. households on Friday, November 25, 2016.[13]

Critical reception

The Loud House has received mostly positive reviews, specifically for its animation, voice acting, and the heartwarming themes of each episode. Emily Ashby of Common Sense Media praised the show's voice cast and thematic messages, writing that "kids will come to The Loud House for the laughs, but they'll return for the ensemble cast and the surprisingly heartwarming themes that dominate every story."[14] Kevin Johnson of The A.V. Club gave the show a B+, noting that "the female characters are defined by their traits, but never judged for them."[15]

The characters of Howard and Harold McBride have received praise for being a positive representation of a married same-sex couple.[16] They are the first same-sex couple to be featured in a Nicktoon.[17][18] Laura Bradley of Vanity Fair stated that The Loud House "handles the topic [of same-sex marriage] in exactly the right way...this kind of casual representation in children's programming is a milestone."[19] De Elizabeth of Teen Vogue wrote, "The best part is that the show doesn’t treat these characters any differently, or even introduce them with a heavy asterisk about their marital status."[20] The Frisky's Tai Gooden mentioned that "kids who have two dads (or moms) will be more than thrilled to see a family they can identify with on TV."[21] Time reported that "people are thrilled about Nickelodeon's decision" to include a gay couple.[22] However, the characters have been met with criticism from conservative media groups. The American Family Association attempted to prevent Nickelodeon from airing scenes featuring the McBride parents, saying that "Nickelodeon should stick to entertaining instead of pushing an agenda."[23]
