"Attention Deficit" is the thirty-first episode of the first season of The Loud House.


Lincoln begins spending time at Clyde's house when Clyde's fathers give him more attention than he gets at home.


Lincoln is hard at work making a model volcano. He tries to ask his parents for assistance, but they're too preoccupied trying to help his sisters. Lincoln then tells the viewers that in a family as big as his, he can't get some assistance from his parents.

It seems that Lincoln gets more attention from the McBrides.

As Lincoln and Clyde head to school with their model volcanoes (with Lincoln's being messy and clumpy, while Clyde's is well detailed), Lincoln compliments on how well crafted Clyde's model volcano is. Clyde tells him that his dads assisted him in making it the entire weekend. He then suggests that Lincoln come by his house to help him, an offer he happily accepts.

After their day of school, Lincoln and Clyde head to the McBride house. The moment they enter, Clyde's dads, Howard and Harold, quickly pamper Lincoln, such as fixing a loose button on his polo, fixing the sole on his shoe, and evening out his sideburns. Later, they serve dinner, and Lincoln is amazed at the fact that they play classical music, and eat actual meat instead of foiled packages. After they're done eating, Lincoln, Clyde, Howard and Harold all relax on massaging chairs, with Lincoln telling the viewers that he's finally getting some attention.

Lincoln heads back home, but the moment he walks in Lynn bumps into him and suspiciously asks him what he's been up to. Lincoln tells her all about the excitements of hanging at Clyde's house and she wants to join him, wanting to improve her bat swings.

The next day, after Lincoln and Lynn leave the McBride residence, they arrive back home and encounter Luna, who notices subtle changes on Lynn's appearance. Like Lynn yesterday, she gets suspicious about their activity and they tell Luna about their time at Clyde's. After they tell her, Luna promises to keep it a secret.

Lincoln enters Clyde's house and mentions that he can tolerate a couple sisters, when suddenly the other sisters come in one by one. Lincoln chastises Luna, believing that she spilled the beans on everyone else, but she said that she never did -- at least not technically. Through flashback, it is shown that while Luna was singing in the shower about all the attention and respect she got at Clyde's house, the other sisters eavesdropped on her and heard every word. With that, they all agreed to spend time at Clyde's house. With these turn of events, Lincoln is unable to get any attention and assistance into finishing his model volcano. When Lincoln tries to tell the sisters to quiet down, he's interrupted by his sisters, who thank him for introducing them to Clyde's dads. At that moment, Lincoln realizes that all the sisters wanted was some attention but since he's unable to get some help, he heads back to his own house.

When Lincoln arrives back home, Rita and Lynn Sr. offer their assistance to Lincoln to help him with his project. At that exact moment, the other sisters arrive back home. They explain that when they suggested to sleep over at the McBrides', Clyde's dads snapped and drove them back home. Back at the McBride house, Howard and Harold are so exhausted that they're unable to behave like their normal selves for the night.

Lincoln finally gets attention from his parents.

As the sisters complain and ask for their assistance, Mom and Dad tell them to stop by saying that they want to help Lincoln first. After a few minutes (provided by a "Five Minutes Later" screen), Lincoln says that the volcano is ready and is prepared to press the button to ignite it. The moment he presses the button, the entire first floor of the house (and presumably the whole family) is splattered with lava.

Physical distribution

This episode is available on the "It Gets Louder" and "The Complete First Season", and "Les Sœurs à la rescousse" DVDs.


  • In the English version, Howard's cell phone ringtone is a chorus singing "Hallelujah!".
    • The Latin American Spanish dub doesn't have the chorus singing, only the background music.
  • In 2017, the episode was nominated for a GLAAD Media Award in the "Outstanding Individual Episode (in a series without a regular LGBTQ character)" category.
  • This is the first episode to have the Loud parents be depicted on the title card.

Right before Lisa suggests the sleepover...

  • A moment where all the sisters keep asking Clyde's dads for something and back them into a corner was removed from the final version of the episode. This could be before they send them home.
  • This episode reveals that Lincoln and Lynn did not have their vaccinations prior to when they visited the McBrides. That same scene implies that at least one of Clyde's dads has gone through medical school.
  • Irony: Lincoln came to Clyde's dads to get rid of the sisters hogging their attention, but in the end, they did exactly what he wanted to avoid in the first place.
  • Innuendo:
    • Luna and Lincoln mention their father, Lynn Sr. having a "wicked kanker". Kanker is Dutch for the terminal illness, cancer.
    • Clyde's dads lay out fresh newspapers as Lily crawls into their home diaperless. This implies that they feared Lily would ruin their carpet by defecating on it.
  • This episode likely takes place before "Sleuth or Consequences" since Lana learns to unclog the toilet .


Dudley Puppy approves of this glue.

  • Attention Deficit - The title is a play on Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and/or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), a mental disability with symptoms such as inhibiting one's ability to pay attention or stand still.
  • T.U.F.F. Puppy - The bottle of glue Lincoln used to make his model volcano is labeled "TUFF", which could possibly be a reference to the fellow Nicktoon created by Butch Hartman.
  • Coppertone - At the beginning of the episode, Charles is seen tugging on Lily's diaper, a subtle reference to the Coppertone logo.


Where's Luna?

  • After the sisters return from the McBrides, they all return, but when they try to ask their parents for attention, Luna is missing. Five minutes later, Luna is back.
  • When Leni comes downstairs after another makeup malfunction, her chin is shown up, but her face is blank.
    • This is explained in "11 Louds a Leapin'" where it's shown that her chin is up higher than shown in here.
  • Lisa calls Lola a "Salisbury steak stealer" when Lola snatches her fork, but the closed captioning misreads the line as "Her moving style is very safe here."

Did Lola get a growth spurt?

  • During the flashback where Luna sings in the shower and the rest of the girls eavesdrop, Lola looks slightly taller than usual.
  • Lana drives Lola's Princess Car without touching the gas pedal.
  • The sewing tools Howard used to fix Lincoln's shirt appear from nowhere in his hands.
  • In the last scene where everything is covered with fake lava, there's an open window which has lava floating in the air.
  • When Howard is telling Lincoln that he needs to help Lola with her double pageant wave, the closed captions misreads the line as "double pageant wings".
  • In the Brazilian Portuguese dub, Howard's voice actor wasn't credited in the dub credits.
  • In the Latin American Spanish dub, Harold calls to Lincoln by his own name when he looks at his project.
