Nickelodeon has been a staple in adolescent culture for almost 40 years, and the network is still breaking barriers and making history today.
A new Nick show called The Loud House just introduced its first-ever biracial gay couple. In an upcoming episode of the show, which centers around the life of Lincoln Loud and his ten sisters, the couple – Harold and Howard McBride (voiced by Wayne Brady and Michael McDonald) – are taking their son, Clyde McBride, to a slumber party at the Loud house.
The Daily Mail reports:
The show’s innovative scene is heralded by Loud telling McBride: ‘It’s time to make history!’ just as the McBride parents ring his doorbell.
The scene focuses on how McBride’s parents are extremely overprotective of their son and shows them handing Loud a sleeping bag, pajamas, a white noise machine, a humidifier, a dehumidifier, earplugs, inhaler and so on.
The amusing scene makes no fanfare about the couple’s sexuality but instead draws attention to the couple’s cautious nature.
Despite the haters, social media had some positive responses to the ground-breaking episode:
The episode, called “Overnight Success,” is set to air Wednesday, July 20th on Nick.
