[[http://savinoboy.blogspot.com/2008/06/and-winner-is.html However, in 2008]], he revealed that the project, which was picked up by an unnamed network, had been axed due to the channel changing the direction of their content.

Added DiffLines:


In May 2018, he became the very first person to ever be suspended from the Animation Guild of Los Angeles as a result of the aforementioned sexual allegations. This has resulted in him being officially blacklisted from the animation industry for one year, must donate $5,000 to a charity (which has to be picked by the members of the Guild that accused Savino in the first place), has to complete 40 hours of community service and partake in ongoing counseling and receive a certificate of sexual harassment training.

* BleachedUnderpants: Savino is best known in the animation industry, working on children's cartoons. However, at some point, he created his very own comic strip titled ''The Complex Adventures of Eddie Puss'', which is about a young anthropomorphic cat who is [[OedipusComplex sexually attracted to his own mother]]. As you might've guessed, the comic strip isn't kid-friendly at all.
* HeAlsoDid: Before he became a writer for ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' and ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'', Savino worked as an animator for titles like ''WesternAnimation/CoolWorld'', ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'', and ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife''.
* OldShame: How he briefly describes Seasons 3 and 4 of ''Dexter's Lab'' to Creator/ButchHartman in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ACDIHh9B-84&t=503s this video]].

He is also a huge fan of comic strips and their artists, especially Cliff Sterrett, George Herriman and Charles M. Schulz. He often incorporates elements from their strips into his works.
* RoleEndingMisdemeanor: Savino's career was effectively destroyed after he was suspended and eventually fired by Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} in October 2017 when several women in the industry came forward to reveal his decade-long history of sexual harassment and blackmail threats against them.[[note]]One of them being ''WesternAnimation/BoJackHorseman'' director Anne Walker Farrell.[[/note]] Savino has since withdrew from his social media accounts [[note]]with the exception of an apology [[http://money.cnn.com/2017/10/19/media/nickelodeon-chris-savino/index.html he posted]] on his now-defunct Facebook page[[/note]], making it safe to say that he's all but blacklisted from the industry and that he'll have no further involvement with ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'', or any show for that matter.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Some time in the year 2000, Savino directed a pilot for the ''WesternAnimation/WhatACartoonShow'' titled ''Foe Paws'', which involved a woman purchasing a dog and cat from the store to act as her new children. The short could have pre-dated Savino's creator credit for ''The Loud House'' had it been picked up for a series.
** Around 2005, Savino started development for a live-action pilot for a potential TV series titled ''Adventures in Milk''. [[http://savinoboy.blogspot.com/2008/06/and-winner-is.html However, in 2008]], he revealed that the project, which was picked up by an unnamed network, had been axed due to the channel changing the direction of their content.
** In 2011, he launched an Indiegogo campaign to fund for a live-action short adaption of his comic book titled ''Bigfoot and Gray on the Run'', which he intended to serve as a potential pilot for a TV series. The short was [[https://vimeo.com/59683177 completed]], but its chances of being picked up are slim to nothing with the allegations made against him.
** When Nick [[http://deadline.com/2017/03/spongebob-loud-house-sherlock-gnomes-1202054433/ announced plans]] for a theatrical ''Loud House'' movie for 2020, Savino was signed on to write and direct the feature. However, due to the aforementioned allegations against him, a new writer/director is set to replace him.
