The Loud House is an American animated sitcom series created by Chris Savino that premiered on Nickelodeon on May 2, 2016. It was the second Nicktoon to stem from the network's internal shorts program, wherein a pilot short was released on June 5, 2014.note
Based on Savino's own childhood of growing up in a large family and influenced by his love of Newspaper Comics, the series follows the adventures of Lincoln Loud, the middle child in a family of eleven kids, having five older sisters and five younger ones, living in the suburban town of Royal Woods, Michigan. Simply put, think Cheaper by the Dozen (or the In Name Only film) as a cartoon.
Following the first season, the series would go on to expand past Lincoln and have more stories centered on other members of the family. By the fifth season, the series' Floating Timeline has broken and the Louds have all aged by one year.
In October 2017, Nick fired Savino amid numerous allegations of sexual harassment and intimidation towards fellow artists, and it was announced that the show would continue to go on without him.note In March 2018, it was announced that story editor Michael Rubiner had become the new series showrunner, effective in Season 4.
Not to be confused with the JMA Wireless Dome.note

May sound bad but ain't the case in the Loud House... (Loud House)
Duck and dodge and push and shove
That's the way we show our love in the Loud House (Loud House)
Laundry piles stacked up high! Hand-me-downs that make me cry!
Standing in line to take a pee! Never any privacy!
Chaos with eleven kids, that's the way it always is
In the Loud House!"
