The Loud House has the style and a heart of older Nickelodeon cartoons. It has funny and likeable characters. Lincoln's sisters are all very different and have very distinct personalities, so it's easy to pick a favorite. And despite the fact that there's 10 of them and all of them follow the same name pattern ( all of them have four letters and start with "L" ), I was able to remember their names after watching just 2 or 3 episodes. Sure, their personalities are kind of stereotypical and one-note ( Bossy older sister, Dumb Blonde, rocker girl, tomboy... ), but the show isn't trying to have very deep or complex characters, it's just trying to be a little fun show with Slice of Life plots, some jokes and... it does what it wants to do really well. I also like the animation style, it looks like something out of comic book and, of course, an older Nickelodeon cartoon.
The Loud House is funny, cute, has a simple yet likeable premise and has charm of old Nickelodeon cartoons. It has potentional to become one of the classics of the network.
I feel as if 2010 has been a really good decade for cartoons, with the exception of one or two cartoons. We had shows like Gravity Falls, Adventure Time, Regular Show and many others. But, in my personal opinion, I believe my favourite is The Loud House.
The Loud House is easily my favourite cartoon. of the decade. Maybe even all time, but that's a bit of a stretch regarding of quality. The best way to describe TLH is "a 90's Nicktoon with modern cartoon elements", basically taking the best of both worlds and mashing them up.
The show is basically a kid with a lot of sisters tries to survive his every day life. That's kinda it. And hey, I appreciate that. I like cartoons with a simple idea. They don't need a lot of continuity or all these worlds and rules and stuff, TLH is simpily a show with a basic premise and makes most of it's appeal via humour and heartwarming moments.
The sisters themselves are very likeable. Even some of the more Base Breaker characters in the fandom I found myself really liking. They feel as if they really care for our protagonist and everything and are written in a way that made me completely believe they're sisters, unlike a few other cartoons where I could see them more or less as friends then sisters.
The writing is also really good. I really love this shows sense of Reality Ensues. It's really satisfying to see some tropes that have been driven into the dirt be given a more realistic approach. Like, a good example is in "Driving Miss Hazy" where Lincoln uses a video game to teach Leni how to drive. But Leni dosen't get her license because she did what she did in the video game, i.e speed and bash cars. That's relatively satisfying to see after most cartoons who go all "I can do this because I played a game about it!". It could also be seen as a nice Take That to Moral Gaurdians who are always screaming "Violent games make you violent" bullshit.
Overall, this is a great show. I strongly reccomend it with every bone in my body. Here's hoping Nickelodeon manages to keep things fresh with this one.
