|“||Hey, guys! Papa Loud in the house!||„|
|~ Lynn Loud Sr.|
Lynn L. Loud, Sr. is the father of Lincoln Loud and his sisters and a supporting character in The Loud House.
He is voiced by Brian Stepanek.
Lynn Sr. is stern, and he often calls a halt to his kids' fights, but he loves and cares about them. He also loves his wife, Rita, and often acts playfully romantic towards her. He has been shown to have a childlike side at times, even sometimes taking part in his kids' antics, when it's all in good fun. He's also the more sensitive of the two parents, frequently prone to crying when frustrated and often necessitating his wife stepping in whenever he needs to pull himself together.
On a side note, he seems to enjoy jokes and dancing. He is shown to dance on occasion in segments such as "The Loudest Yard", "Ties That Bind", "Come Sale Away", and "House Music". In addition, it is mentioned in "A Tattler's Tale" that he won a dancing contest, and had a disco ball trophy that Lincoln broke. In addition, in "Sleuth or Consequences" he mentions enjoying karaoke. He often enjoys Luan's jokes, and tries making his own.
Lynn Sr. wears a green sweater over a light-green checkered collar and cuffs, and brown slacks. He has a long pointy nose, brown eyebrows, and curly brown hair that is thinning on the top.
In "House Music", when he is playing the cowbell, he wears a yellow-striped shirt, and green pants which his underwear was seen. In his youth, he sported a mustache.
His parallel counterpart in One of the Boys has the same hairstyle, but wears a pink shirt and dark brown-purple pants.
- Lynn Sr.'s entire face was never shown during the first season. His face was revealed along with Rita's face in the Season 2 premiere, "11 Louds a Leapin'".
- This seems to be parodied at the beginning of "Suite and Sour", as the first few seconds of the episode keep their faces hidden, as if their reveal never happened, only to show them afterwards.
- Out of his children, he's seemingly the closest to Luna (Largely due to the fact that he loves music almost as much as she does), Luan (Due to the fact that they have similar senses of humor, and it's quite likely that Luan inherited her love of puns from him), Lynn (Unsurprising, since she's named after him) and Lana (He often enlists her help in his home- improvement projects, and helps teach her more about it).
- He is the first character in the series, apart from Lincoln, to speak to the audience. This instance occurred at the end of "It's a Loud, Loud, Loud, Loud House".
- His personality is very similar to that of Tom Harper from Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn, as well as Harold Buttowski from Kick Buttowski: Suburban Daredevil, who are also father characters played by Brian Stepanek.
- Lynn Sr. shares some similarities to Vito Corleone from The Godfather:
- Both have short tempered and aggressive children (Lynn Sr.: Lori, Lynn and Lola, Vito: Sonny).
- Both are loving fathers and family oriented.
- Both have family members who are musicians (Luna Loud in Lynn Sr.'s case, Johnny Fontane in Vito's case).
- However, unlike Vito Corleone, Lynn Sr. is neither a criminal nor is he a crime boss.
- It is revealed in "House Music" that he used to be in a band, but got kicked out due to playing his cowbell too much, even when they were not practicing.
- According to "The Loudest Yard", he used to breakdance.
- In "April Fools Rules", his eyes and nose are visible throughout the entire segment.
- Of the two Loud parents, he has made the most appearances.
- According to "The Price of Admisson", he's afraid of horror movies. Along the same lines, in the Halloween special, 'Tricked,' it's revealed that he hates Halloween due to how scary it can be for him.
- Lynn Sr. is the first supporting character to get a segment centered entirely around him.
- There are episodes that reveal the Loud sisters inherited some of Lynn Sr.'s habits.
- He has a love of cooking and is quite good at it, eventually quitting his office job to become a restaurant chef.
- He has a large collection of neckties, with a particular love of ugly and/ or tacky ones.
