Nickelodeon Animated Series Debuts First Interracial Married Gay Cartoon Couple

Nickelodeon Loud House Gay Interracial Couple Cartoon

Nationwide — TV has become more gay-friendly these days, and not just for adults! Nickelodeon, which is owned by Viacom, apparently wants their animated programming to reflect more diverse types of families, and so they’ve introduced an interracial gay couple as the parents of one of the characters on an upcoming episode of “The Loud House”.

Both of the parents are men – one is Black, and the other is white. The episode, which aired on July 20th features the couple, Harold and Howard McBride – voiced by Wayne Brady and Michael McDonald – taking their son, Clyde McBride, to a slumber party at the Loud house. The scene focuses on the two parents being extremely overprotective of their son.

According to Mail Online, the scene makes no fanfare about the couple’s sexuality but instead draws attention to the couple’s cautious nature. Although many found the scene to be outrageous and inappropriate, the gay community reportedly was thrilled about Nickelodeon’s decision to represent a married same-sex couple in such a positive light.

Meanwhile, Nickelodeon literally made history by being the first cable network ever to feature such a scenario.
