Rugrats is a show that brings back memories for me. I remember watching it every night at 7:30 back in 2002/03 (I forget if it was one or both), and it was probably the first show I watched on regular Nick (meaning not Nick Jr.). Today, it's still one of my favorite Nicktoons. In 2003, it got a spin-off called All Grown Up!, which I liked too. But it also had a second spin-off that I don't think as many people are familiar with. It's called Rugrats Pre-School Daze. I never even heard of this show until 2011, and didn't watch it until this month so I could review it. From what little I have heard of it, it isn't that good. But I also liked All Grown Up!, so maybe I'll feel different. Is it actually good, or is it obscure for a reason?

This week, Nick debuted a new Nicktoon called The Loud House. It was created by Chris Savino, who's known for his work on Dexter's Laboratory and The Powerpuff Girls, and was the showrunner on the last 2 seasons of both. I know there is a lot of hate on his episodes, but I actually like them. They weren't as good as when they were run by their creators, but I still found them enjoyable.
His first show, the Loud House, was announced nearly 2 years ago. It started out as a 2 1/2 minute short that was released online. It wasn't bad, but I wasn't really a fan of the humor. Based on what the short was about, it could've been just for that. Was that the case, or is this not that good a show?
