Nick’s The Loud House is a children’s show based on a large family of eleven children. In the show the main character, Lincoln, struggles with being the only son with 10 sisters. Talk about a full house! In the show’s latest episode “Overnight Success,” the newly-introduced married couple, Harold and Howard McBride, prepare their son Clyde for a sleepover with Lincoln.

Voiced by actor Wayne Brady and singer Michael McDonald, the couple are not only Nick’s first same-sex marriage couple, but they also biracial. Breaking barriers left and right, Twitter reacted in excitement to see such diversity on their television screens.
