In an episode called "Overnight Success", the protagonist Lincoln says, "This is it. Time to make history," as his friend, Clyde McBride, does a countdown in the background.

Then Howard and Harold McBride, who are Clyde McBride’s parents, drop their son at Lincoln’s house for a sleepover.

People are seriously loving the representation of a married same-sex couple.

Time to make history indeed! First married gay couple on a Nickelodeon cartoon!

The Loud House was already our new favourite cartoon and now they've gone and done this brilliant thing. 💕💕
