107 The Loud House Facts is a YouTube video uploaded by Frederator Studios' YouTube channel Channel Frederator on November 4, 2016 as part of its "Tooned Up" series. A Spanish-language version of the video was uploaded on Frederator's Spanish-language channel Atomo Network on January 26, 2017.
The Loud House was created by Chris Savino, a long-time animator who began his career way back in 1991 as a layout artist on the radical cartoon series, The Ren & Stimpy Show.
Savino says that Ren & Stimpy is one of his favorite cartoons of all time along with Rocko's Modern Life, which he was a character designer for.
Savino worked in animation on various kids shows for years, including stints on Rocko's Modern Life, Hey Arnold!, Dexter's Laboratory, The Powerpuff Girls, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, My Life as a Teenage Robot, My Gym Partner's a Monkey, Ni Hao, Kai-Lan and Kick Buttowski. Just to name a few.
Savino grew up watching cartoons like Looney Tunes, Underdog, Popeye, and Rocky & Bullwinkle. He said if he could befriend any animated character in real life, he'd choose Bullwinkle because his pun game is so strong.
Although he loved those cartoons, his biggest inspiration for getting into cartooning and animation was the comics page in the Sunday newspaper. Savino always wanted to have his own comic strip and his favorites to read growing up were Pogo, Peanuts and the work within MAD Magazine.
The Loud House was designed with those traditional comics in mind. Savino himself said that he wanted watching an episode to feel like you're reading the Sunday funnies.
This classic look goes all the way to the bones of the show with every floor, wall, and line being done in a single color. Not to mention a lot of the show's backgrounds don't feature any moving action at all.
Even the title cards of every episode look like an old-school Sunday newspaper comic. Lincoln appears on every single title card in some form.
The show began as part of Nickelodeon's Animated Shorts Program, which started in 2012 to showcase new work by some talented folks.
Savino's pitch was selected to be part of the 2013 shorts program. Originally, the short was about a family of rabbits starring a lone boy rabbit with 25 sisters.
As the short was developed the characters became humans instead of animals and the number of sisters was knocked down to 10. Whew! A little easier to remember.
The story became a reflection of Savino's own life as he himself grew up with nine siblings. Take that, Brady Bunch!
Savino named five of the girls on the show after five of his real-life sisters. Two other sisters were named after what Savino and his wife would have named their daughters - if they didn't wind up having three sons, that is - one sister was named after a pet wiener dog he had, and another sister's name was taken from a famous literary character - Lennie from Of Mice and Men. So a lot of thought went into these names.
Lincoln, on the other hand, was named after the street Savino grew up on. He was the last character to be named.
Savino's childhood home inspired the Loud house itself. The house number, 1216, is the same as the address where he grew up and the boomerang and Frisbee on the roof are based on all the objects his family stranded on his own roof.
Growing up, Savino's family had many pets, inspiring him to give the Louds a lot of pets as well. They have four who appear regularly: a dog, a cat, a bird, and a hamster.
All of these pets are named after famous cartoonists: George McManus, Cliff Sterrett, Walt Kelly, and Charles Schulz.
The initial pilot was called "Bathroom Break!" and featured Lincoln's attempt to reach the bathroom, warding all of his sisters in the process. Ah, siblings...
In 2014, Savino's short was chosen by Nickelodeon's head honchos to become a full-length series. They greenlit the production of 13 episodes of The Loud House.
They eventually expanded that order to 26 episodes. Quite impressive for the first series to be greenlit from the Animated Shorts Program!
The Loud House continued an impressive streak, becoming the 37th Nicktoon in the network's history.
The show was previewed at the 2015 San Diego Comic-Con as part of the Nickelodeon Variety Show.
