Nickelodeon USA to Air 'The Loud House' / 'The Casagrandes' Crossover Special 'Hangin' at Home' on Saturday, May 23, 2020

Got plans for next Saturday night? Well, you do know! In the brand new The Loud House / The Casagrandes crossover special, "Hangin' at Home" with Lincoln and Ronnie Anne! It'll be a night full of best friends, unexpected guests and a big BIG surprise! The Loud House & Casagrandes "Hangin' at Home" special, airing next Saturday, May 23, 2020 from 8:00 p.m. (ET/PT), followed by the premiere of Group Chat: The Show at 8:30, only on Nickelodeon USA!


Using Adobe Character Animator and voice actors recording from home, Nickelodeon creates animated half-hour special hosted by Lincoln and Ronnie Anne; The Loud House SmartyPants Challenge trivia competition follows beginning May 25.

Lincoln and Ronnie Anne join the virtual hosting ranks in The Loud House & The Casagrandes Hangin’ At Home virtual animated special, coming to Nickelodeon Saturday, May 23 at 8:00 pm (ET/PT). The show will feature the pair on video chat, reminiscing on classic moments from The Loud House and The Casagrandes; they’ll share helpful tips and funny anecdotes about what their families are all doing while staying home, while flashing back to previous episodes featuring their big and fun-loving families.


Much like these characters and their young fans, the Nickelodeon Animation crew are also “hangin’ at home” due to pandemic precautions. But, the studio continues to create opportunities to explore the intersection between content and technology. This special was created virtually and features original animation of Lincoln and Ronnie Anne, created using Adobe Character Animator in nearly a week. Using the software, work-from-home artists were able to listen to voice over and, using keyboard shortcuts, trigger specific animations on the characters. The voice actors behind these characters recorded their lines from home, which were then matched with the animation.


Nick previously employed Character Animator for The Loud House Facebook LIVE event, The Loud House NYE special and the Rise of the TMNT virtual press junket.



The show is part of Nickelodeon’s #KidsTogether, a global, multiplatform prosocial initiative using its most popular characters and talent to engage with kids and families on tips for staying healthy and also ideas for activities to do together while in the home during COVID-19.


Following the special, fans can compete in The Loud House SmartyPants Challenge, featuring trivia questions about the series. Players will test their knowledge with over 100 questions, earn badges and get an automatically generated nickname. The challenge will air over The Loud House episodes starting Mon., May 25, through Fri., May 29, from 4:00 P.M. to 5:00 P.M. (ET/PT) and syncs with Nickelodeon’s Screens Up! companion app.

The Loud House animated series was recently greenlit for a fifth season and new episodes continue to air on Nickelodeon. The series also won Emmy Awards for Outstanding Children’s Animated Series and Outstanding Writing for an Animated Program in 2018.


The series debuted May 2016 on Nickelodeon and centers on 11-year-old Lincoln Loud and his ten sisters as he gives an inside look at what it takes to survive the chaos of a huge family. In addition to the series, the property also has been translated into a comic book series, which continues to roll out new stories and a podcast, Listen Out Loud. Two seasons of Listen Out Loud are currently available with a third coming soon. The series is executive produced by Michael Rubiner. Karen Malach serves as producer and Kyle Marshall is supervising producer.

A spinoff of The Loud House, The Casagrandes tells the story of 11-year-old Ronnie Anne who moves to the city with her mom and older brother to live with their big, loving family, the Casagrandes. The series showcases the culture, humor, and love that’s part of growing up in a multigenerational Mexican-American family.

The series recently received a Season 2 greenlight, which will continue to follow Ronnie Anne and her multigenerational family for more love, laughter and adventures in the big city. Premiering this fall, the Casagrande family members will find themselves in a variety of situations, including becoming a viral sensation, searching for Pancho Villa’s lost gold, celebrating Las Posadas and more.
