The Loud House is a 2016 animated television sitcom series created by Chris Savino and airs on Nickelodeon.
Plot[edit | edit source]
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 tomboyish eldest child Lori, ditzy yet beautiful Leni, aspiring rock star Luna, aspiring comedian Luan, athletic Lynn, gloomy goth Lucy, polar-opposite twins handy helper Lana and girly Lola, child prodigy Lisa, and baby Lily.
Why It Rocks[edit | edit source]
- Incredibly witty humor, jokes, idioms, satires and slapsticks.
- Likable characters with unique personalities, including Lincoln's most adorable, most tomboyish girlfriend, and Lori's best friend, Ronnie Anne Santiago.
- Four of the Loud tomboys (Luna, Luan, Lynn Jr. and Lana) are so adorable.
- Lily Loud, the baby sister, is extremely cute.
- Lucy Loud is the nicest and kindest goth girl.
- Clyde is a very cute and likable pal to Lincoln, especially when Lincoln needs him around.
- Good gross-out humor, especially very good fart jokes, thanks to Lincoln Loud.
- Decent animation with an interesting comic-esque style.
- The Christmas episode was decent
- The moments where Leni's clumsiness is shown are hilarious and memorable.
- All Loud siblings have really cute character designs.
- Okay soundtrack with a catchy theme song and decent and touching songs such as "That's What Christmas is All About".
- Tons of cultural references, including references from Peanuts.
- Awesome voice acting.
- Lucy's kindness is so adorable.
- In every title card, the "Skater Dudes" font is used, which looks very cool, as well as having comic book-style panels.
- 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.
Bad Qualities[edit | edit source]
- It was created by Chris Savino, the man who ruined Dexter's Laboratory and The Powerpuff Girls (1998), but he did better with this show.
- There are uses of toilet humor, like Lily's stinky diapers, however, Lily's dipper gag came to an end in "Schooled!"
- It has its share of bad episodes.
- Luan's jokes can be annoying.
- 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 had to tone down the mean-spirited vibes in later episodes.
- Some episodes are pretty bad, such as "Ruthless People", "Kings of the Con", Making the Case", "House Flip" (a torture Flip episode), "No Such Luck" (a torture Lincoln episode), and "Sitting Bull."
- 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.
- Some jokes can be forced and repetitive.
- Overuse of dated and jokes.
- It can get pretty mean-spirited sometimes, mainly towards Lincoln and less so in season 3.
- Lincoln's voice seem to get more deeper in season 3.
- Luna's music, while good, can often lack the spirit of rock and roll.
- Lynn can be pretty unlikable at times, due to her mean spirited bullying nature towards most other characters, especially to Lincoln. In fact, she has no permanent character development whatsoever. Furthermore, she was infamously the one who started Lincoln's "bad luck" jinx in the above mentioned "No Such Luck".
- It often uses flanderization and character derailment in later seasons like in “House Flip”, which is a good example of this.
14. Season 4 and 5 are not well received due to the plots following the same formula where the character apologizes at the end, even though they learned not to do that
