‘Loud House’ Creator Chris Savino Suspended for Sexual Harassment

Chris Savino, the creator of “The Loud House” on Nickelodeon, has been suspended amid several claims of sexual harassment, Variety has learned.

Viacom would not confirm the news, but issued a statement: “Viacom is committed to the safety and well-being of our employees, and to fostering a workplace free from harassment. As a matter of policy, we do not comment on specific employee matters, but we take all allegations of this nature very seriously, investigate them thoroughly and take any necessary actions as a result.”

The news was first reported by the website Cartoon Brew, which said that a dozen women have accused Savino of inappropriate behavior. Their accusations — which date back several years — include unwanted sexual advances as well as threats of retribution after the end of consensual relationships.

“The Loud House,” now in its third season, is one of Nickelodeon’s most popular series, just behind “Spongebob Squarepants.” It follows the adventures of Lincoln Loud, an 11-year-old boy growing up in a family with 10 sisters. It premiered in 2016 and in October was renewed for a third season. It is unknown how Savino’s suspension will impact season three production.

Savino is a veteran of kids’ animation, having worked on “Rocko’s Modern Life.” “The Loud House” was developed out of Nickelodeon’s Animated Shorts Program.
