The Loud House follows a boy named Lincoln Loud who is the only boy in the Loud family consisting of 10 sisters. Viewers will be introduced to the same-sex couple during an episode when a friend named Clyde McBride comes over for a sleepover. Harold and Howard McBride, the same sex-couple, are voiced by Wayne Brady, Let’s Make a Deal host, and MadTV alum Michael McDonald. The reaction to the cartoon news has been pretty positive on social media with many praising Nickelodeon for their actions. While this is the first same-sex couple to be featured in a cartoon on a major television network, Disney and Pixar made the move with a lesbian couple in Finding Dory and with a pair of mothers on the Disney show, Good Luck Charlie. Check out the clip below and see the full episode on Wednesday at 8 on Nickelodeon.
