I’ve never mentioned this before, but last month I created a poll on Twitter asking TLH fans whether they like Clyde. The choices were:
- He’s okay.
- I can’t stand him.
The poll closed after two days, with the first choice having the majority of votes. (I wish I had made a screenshot of it.) The reason why I created it in the first place was that I had routinely seen (and still do from time to time) comments from people saying how much they hate Clyde and complain each time he appeared onscreen. But then I realized that there are many fans aside from my friends here who like Clyde anywhere – I just frequently go to Toonzone and The Loud House Wiki where a few users regularly voiced their dislike for him.
As you may have already known, I love Clyde! And seeing such comments kind of bothered me. I do understand his unrequited crush on Lori annoy some people, but several episodes have shown that he’s much more than that – “Baby Steps” for example. However, despite that, those people continued to pin as useless.
And the reaction to “Change of Heart”? Whoo. While I do like the episode, I wish that Clyde getting over his crush on Lori would’ve stayed – so that he would finally have a more positive reception. Long ago, I announced that I was thinking of opening a Loud House RP blog – it’s going to be a Clyde RP blog, since there are no blogs on Tumblr about him! However, the mostly negative reaction to “Change of Heart” made me rethink my plans – I already created the blog a few days before the episode’s premiere – and I still don’t know whether I can officially open it.
Who can not like this cute kid?
