The Casagrandes is an American animated comedy series that is a spinoff of The Loud House. It debuted on October 14, 2019, and was developed by Michael Rubiner based on characters by Chris Savino. The series has been renewed for a second and third season.
Ronnie Anne, her older brother Bobby, and their mother Maria, having moved to Great Lakes City, now live with their extended family, the Casagrandes. There, Ronnie Anne meets new friends like Sid Chang, and discovers more about the city.
Why It Rocks
- Amazing animation; just like with The Loud House, it uses the cartoony, newspaper comic-esque style nicely.
- Speaking of The Loud House, the titular house had a cameo at the end of “New Croaks”.
- The characters originally from The Loud House (such as Ronnie Anne, the protagonist) are still lovable, and the new characters are great as well.
- Catchy theme song that's peppered with some Spanish phrases and words.
- Manages to build on top of existing continuity by introducing new characters.
- A few characters from The Loud House appear in certain episodes, further uniting the two series.
- Lincoln Loud appears in “The Horror Scope”.
- Lori Loud appears in “This Bird Has Flown”.
- Great depictions of Mexican-American culture.
- Excellent writing.
- C.J. is a great, well-written portrayal of down syndrome.
- Has some crossovers with The Loud House such as "The Loudest Thanksgiving" and "Cursed!"
- Witty humor, jokes, and slapstick.
- Awesome voice acting, with well-known names such as Melissa Joan Hart, Ken Jeong, Eugenio Derbez, and Sonia Manzano.
- Even this show has a few bad or mediocre episodes such as "The Bird Has Flown. (the most infamous episode in this series)", ¨Senior Class¨, and ¨I, Breakfast Bot¨.
- There are also a few boring episodes, but thankfully, not too many.
- Some jokes can get old very quickly.
- Sergio, the family's pet parrot, can be annoying and unlikable.
- Some blatant attempts at being relevant at dead/dying trends such as Bobby dabbing in the episode "Stress Test", and Tía Frida dabbing and flossing in the episode "Copy Can't” and Ronnie Anne dabbing in the title card of the same episode.
- The intro when Ronnie sang "Tíos, abuelos, all of my primos ,A dog, a parrot, amigos, We're one big family now!" which is familiar to the infamous song Despacito by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee.
