YMMV / The Casagrandes

Go To

  • Adorkable: Tio Carlos by virtue of being an Absent-Minded Professor.
  • Bizarro Episode: The second part of the Season 3 premiere, "Bunstoppable," involves Sid and Adelaide making bao based on their father's family recipe. In case that sounds normal enough, then it involves three bandits being whisked from the past via a time rift!
  • Friendly Fandoms:
    • Besides The Loud House, there's also a good amount of overlap with Maya & Miguel due to both family-friendly animated shows focusing on Latino city families, even featuring a pet parrot with the same voice actor.

    • To a lesser extent, the same can be said for skateboard based media fans such as those who played the Tony Hawk's and Skate games as we got an episode of the show focusing on Ronnie Anne skating. Funnily enough, Tony Hawk would eventually be revealed to be a guest star in an upcoming season 3 episode, "Skaters Gonna Hate."
  • Moe: This series is filled with characters that are this.
    • All of the Casagrandes kids are too cute for words:
      • Ronnie Anne is a playful ball of energy.
      • Bobby. He’s a pinhead, but he’s also Lori’s pinhead.
      • CJ is so silly and childish, that you can’t help gush when he’s around.
      • Carlota is a vain, but lovable fashionista diva.
      • It’s kinda cute when Carl tries to act older and flirt with girls.
      • Carlitos is a little baby, so of course he'll be this.
    • Not just the title family, so is some of their neighbors. Examples:
      • Sid is just an Adorkable, inexhaustible fountain of energy who's willing and able to help out with Ronnie Anne's plans.
      • Sid's little sister, Adelaide, is just a precious little sprite, and has yet to grow out of the age of endless childhood wonder.
      • Miranda is a pudgy girl who likes hacky sack, and she's so endearing.
  • Moment of Awesome:
    • In "How to Train Your Carl", Mrs. Chang saves Carl from being Eaten Alive by Keyon the komodo dragon.
    • In "Team Effort", Laird of all people is shown to be a good skateboarder. Granted, he has trouble stopping, but it's still impressive.
    • In "Uptown Funk", Adelaide, despite only being six years old, knows enough about trains to get the train back under control after Carl accidentally sends it out of control.
    • In "Blunder Party", Ronnie Anne and her friends send Carl and Adelaide on a scavenger hunt. It was meant to be a Snipe Hunt, but the two little kids manage to actually find all the objects.
    • In "Fails from the Crypt", Ronnie Anne and her friends (even Laird, who still uses a security blanket!) not only manage to spend the entire night at the cemetery without bailing out (which nobody apart from her grandparents, Vito, and Sergio has been able to do in years) but (with the exception of Laird) they managed to prank those four back after being pranked by them.

    • In "Short Cut", CJ is revealed to be able to style hair in the dark.
    • "Karate Chops" reveals that Carl, and especially Adelaide, are very good at karate for their age (eight and six respectively).
    • Carlitos proves himself to be rather smart for a baby in "Fluff Love" — he knows the way to the arcade, reasons that he can't make it there on foot, and is able to use the pigeons to get Laird out of the way.
    • In "Prankaversary", Sid, despite being a newbie prankster, manages (along with Adelaide) to fool Ronnie Anne, a notorious prankster.
  • Nausea Fuel:
    • In "Croaked", Ronnie Anne, Sid, Adelaide, and Sergio use Carlitos' dirty diaper to attract flies for Froggy to catch.
    • The "Dizzy Carl" sequence in "Maybe-Sitter" ends with Carl throwing up all over Bobby's cat pajamas. ON-SCREEN! Lampshaded by Bobby, who looks like he's about to puke as well.
    • "Gossipy Girl" has Nikki taking a bite out of a corn dog that was previously stuck up her nose.
  • The Scrappy: Many viewers of the show really, REALLY hate Sergio for being an unrepentant Jerkass who causes conflict in nearly every episode, especially towards Bobby. Not to mention he gets shoehorned in so often that Carlitos and Lalo feel underutilised compared to him.
  • Spiritual Adaptation: For some of the community, it's considered to be a better and proper yet comedic take on Dora and Friends: Into the City! (with a distinctively sitcom vibe) than the actual one.
  • Squick:
    • In "Never Friending Story", when we learn that Nelson gets "the poops" upon eating almonds, extremely gross squirting sounds can be heard offscreen.
    • In "Slink or Swim," when Carl and Bobby were swimming, there was a brown substance floating at the pool. Bobby believed it was chocolate, and in fact wanted to eat it, but then we see Lalo swimming, farting in the pool, implying that it was his poop in the pool. Talk about disgusting.
    • In "What's Love Gato Do with It?", when the family makes a room for Bobby's cat persona, a litter box can be seen. Thankfully, he never has to use it.
  • The Woobie: Bobby in "Stress Test." In that episode, the stupid aspects of his character are somewhat deconstructed because he is shown to genuinely struggle with passing his Achievement Test of Destiny. After failing the test four times, even with the help of Carlos, Rosa, and Carlota, he is reduced to Inelegant Blubbering, his tear-stained face providing the image for this show's Tear Jerker page, and he briefly crosses the Despair Event Horizon.
