How come this show doesn’t get more love! It’s actually better than Loud House (no offense to Loud House)

Streaming on Paramount Plus, the Casagrandes is more than just spin-off of Nickelodeon’s “The Loud House”. It’s actually one of the cutest shows I’ve seen on TV this year! Being introduced to it through plutoTV’s Nick channel I decided I have to try it out, and therefore I did. Every character on there has good morals, even better than Loud House at times! It is a shame that they are ending the series, because the characters are so likable. The cast is also very racially diverse, representing different cultural and ethnic backgrounds. And the cutest character is Froggy 2! For Nickelodeon fans, the fairly short-lived Casagrandes has elements of classic Nickelodeon as well as modern.

Our review:
Parents say (7 ):
Kids say (27 ):

This cheerful Loud House spin-off retains the original's sweet tone and focus on a big, raucous family, but it gender-flips the main character and makes that family a vibrant Mexican American clan. Score! Though the family's Mexican origins are seldom mentioned, it's clearly telegraphed by spoken Spanglish, the brilliant color palette, and the stylistic flourishes like title cards strewn with Mexican embroidery patterns and papel picado. The Casagrandes coexist happily among a diverse set of neighbors and friends, like next-door neighbors the Changs. Pretty much everybody in the Casagrandes' big (unnamed) city ends up in the family's store anyway, so why draw borders?

With her skateboard always at the ready, and a head full of schemes intended to right wrongs and show up her annoying brothers, Ronnie Anne is a high-spirited hero kids will relate to (even while they may wonder how she gets the freedom to knock around her neighborhood parent-free, day and night). Meanwhile, parents will appreciate how lovingly her aunts, uncles, grandparents, and cousins rescue her from minor scrapes and gently nudge her toward better behavior. The appeal of this show is obvious, and the representation simply delightful. Don't miss a chance to visit with this big-hearted family -- it's worth your while.
