The magic of having a 9-year old as an adult is being able to stay in touch with cartoons and whatever else kids are into. It’s because of her that I ever really pay attention to cartoons on television. One of those shows that I was grateful to be introduced to is Nickelodeon’s The Loud House. Due to the popularity of this series, they were able to develop a spin-off to that series called, Los Casagrandes. This add’s the perspective of a Hispanic family in the mix of all the crazy daily adventures that we are used to.
Los Casagrandes follows 11-year-old Ronnie Anne, voiced by Izabella Alvarez. As well as her brother Bobby, voiced by Carlos PenaVega. The premise is that because of the fact that their father is working abroad in Peru, they move in with their multi-generational Mexican-American extended family above their Mercado. What is great about this series, is how well they integrate Latin culture without it feeling stereotypical. The many adventures of Bobby and Ronnie Anne for the most part feel like they could be part of any family.
Here is the synopsis for Nickelodeon’s The Casagrandes:
A new home in the city holds big adventures, laughs and love around every corner in Nickelodeon’s original animated series The Casagrandes. A spinoff of Nick’s animated hit The Loud House. The Casagrandes tells the story of 11-year-old Ronnie Anne. She moves to the city with her mom and older brother to live with their big, loving family, the Casagrandes. Starring Izabella Alvarez (Westworld) as 11-year-old Ronnie Annie. Carlos PenaVega (Big Time Rush) as her brother Bobby. As well as Sumalee Montano (Nashville) as her mom Maria. The series showcases the culture, humor, and love that’s part of growing up in a multigenerational Mexican-American family. After moving in with their grandparents in Great Lakes City, Ronnie Anne adjusts to her new life living under one roof and over the family-run mercado (local market), which is a gathering place for everyone in the neighborhood.
Next Monday, Nickelodeon will be featuring a fun event for fans called, The Loud House Mega Music Countdown Special. Followed by the premiere of a new episode of Los Casagrandes titled, Meal Ticket. The Loud House event will be hosted by one of the stars of both series, Carlos PenaVega. Ahead of this, LRM Online had the opportunity to talk with PenaVega about it. As well as talk about what makes his character Bobby special, and what he hopes people can take away from Los Casagrandes. It’s a fun time! Be sure to check it out down below!
