—"Get the Message"

Roberto "Bobby" Alejandro Martínez-Millán Luis Santiago, Jr.[n 1] is a supporting character in The Loud House, and a main character in its spin-off The Casagrandes.

Biography

Bobby is Lori's boyfriend, Ronnie Anne's older brother, and Maria's oldest child and only son. He has had many jobs throughout the series, such as pizza delivery, lifeguard, mall security, and grocery clerk.

Left in the Dark

Bobby is first mentioned in "Left in the Dark", the first episode of the series. Lincoln texts him using Lori's phone to call her in order to distract her from live-tweeting her show. While she is glad that Bobby called her, she is fully aware that Lincoln only did this to distract her.

Get the Message

Although not shown physically on screen, Bobby's voice can be heard in "Get the Message" when Lori is seen sorting through the voicemail messages that Bobby has left for her. It is his first "appearance".

Undie Pressure

Bobby at Lori's window.

Bobby's first onscreen appearance is in "Undie Pressure", six weeks after he and Lori have begun dating. After being out of contact with Lori for too long due to a bet the Loud siblings had all agreed to, Bobby is first seen in the pouring rain looking through the living room window to check on Lori. He is still there when Luna hides behind the curtains to avoid being caught cheating on her part of the bet, and is eventually allowed inside the house, losing Lori her end of the bet. He also indirectly causes Lana, Luan, and Lisa to lose their bets.

In the final scene, Bobby is seen chasing a chicken and asking why it crossed the road, which is a reference to the reason he gave Lori for being late to visit her and the statement that indirectly lost Luan her part of the bet.

Save the Date

Bobby, Lori, Lincoln, and Ronnie on a double date.

Bobby's first major role was in "Save the Date", where it is also revealed that Ronnie Anne is his sister. In order to deny going out with or even having interest in Ronnie Anne, Lincoln says several insulting things about her to his friends, hurting her feelings and causing her to cry. This causes Bobby to break up with Lori. In order to make things right, the four go on a double date. Clyde, posing as the host of the restaurant, continuously tries to sabotage Bobby's experience, such as not seating him with the rest of the party and stealing a chair out from under him.

Disgusted at Bobby and Lori's romance, Lincoln and Ronnie Anne begin to tell stories about Bobby and Lori. It is revealed that Bobby once considered store-bought flowers too impersonal and elected to pick his own, accidentally picking poison ivy and causing Lori to swell up "like a salted turkey". Bobby and Lori see the two laughing and getting along and decide that their break-up is over. Bobby states that it has been "torture" and the two lean in for a kiss, only to be interrupted by Clyde.

After Lincoln's friends from school show up and Lincoln tries to sneak out of the restaurant without being detected, he is spotted and insults Ronnie Anne yet again. Ronnie Anne leaves the restaurant in tears and Bobby declares that he and Lori are again separated.

It is assumed that Bobby and Lori got back together after Lincoln apologized and kissed Ronnie Anne in the restaurant, because they are seen to be together in future episodes.

A Fair to Remember

Bobby bonding with Lincoln.

In "A Fair to Remember", Bobby becomes close friends with Lincoln and begins to spend more time with him than he does with Lori, making her jealous. To get back at him, she starts hanging out with Clyde. The four of them went out as friends together and no matter how much she tried, Bobby remained unaware that she was trying to make him jealous. Eventually Lincoln had to break off their friendship to bring them together. Bobby was hurt by this, but Lincoln said they could still be friends if they didn't hang out as much as they used to.

Homespun

"Homespun" reveals the first time Bobby met Lori's parents. He learned the hard way that the Loud house is falling apart. He fell through the rotting porch, fell victim to the faulty water pressure, and broke off the bathroom doorknob.

11 Louds a Leapin'

Bobby gives himself to Lori for Christmas.

In "11 Louds a Leapin'," Lori and Bobby are celebrating their first Christmas together. However, Bobby is having trouble coming up with a good present to give to Lori, who, in turn, is trying her best to resist opening up Christmas presents early (she and the rest of the family not wanting a repeat of what happened at Christmas the previous year). Lori later gets a huge present that says to open it immediately—but believing it to be some sort of test, Lori decides not to open it until Christmas morning. When Lori finally opens the huge present that she has gotten the day before, the present turns out to be Bobby himself. Exhausted and half-starved, Bobby explains that he couldn't come up with a material gift for Lori, so he decided to give himself as a Christmas present to her (and immediately asks for food and water after having been in the box for so long).

Cheater by the Dozen

The kids confront Bobby about his alleged cheating.

In "Cheater by the Dozen," Lincoln and Clyde catch Bobby going into another girl's house. Assuming the worst, Lincoln and Clyde (and later Lincoln's sisters sans Lori) decide to spy on him to present Lori with photographic evidence that Bobby has been cheating on her multiple times. Among other things, they take photos of Bobby showing another girl a ring in a little box, dancing with a man, and sitting in a car with yet another girl. With enough photographic evidence, Lincoln, Clyde, and the sisters go to Giovanni Chang's Italian Chinese Bistro to confront Bobby about his supposed unfaithfulness, but Bobby quickly disproves their suspicions by pointing out that all the people in the photographs were simply helping him out on his date with Lori. After that, Bobby and Lori forgive Lincoln and Clyde on the grounds that they were looking out for Lori.

Lock 'N' Loud

Bobby guards the house.

In "Lock 'N' Loud", Bobby gets hired as a security guard for the Loud House. He is on a Segway while wearing his mall police attire where he approaches Clyde and asks him for his name and business. When Clyde asks Bobby what he's doing, the latter informs that due to new security measures by Lori, he was hired to guard the house. Lori decides to vouch for Clyde, and he's allowed access into the house. Later, he asks Rita and Lynn Sr. for their names so they can leave the house where he holds up a piece of paper. Rita then tells Bobby he said their names (he did not because he called them Mr. and Mrs. Loud), and then he says facepalms his head saying that he has to stop doing that. Later in the end, he is seen with the Loud family and Lynn's roller derby teammates.

The Loudest Mission: Relative Chaos

Bobby and Lori bid each other goodbye.

"The Loudest Mission: Relative Chaos" has Bobby and his sister Ronnie Anne visit their maternal grandparents in Great Lakes City. At first, they think it's just for the weekend, but by the end of the weekend, their mother has told them that they are in fact moving into the Casagrande apartment. Ironically, although Bobby got emotional and wept dramatically at the thought of being away from Lori for two days, he had no problems with staying with his extended family indefinitely. Not surprisingly, Lori is furious when she finds out and tries to persuade Bobby to return to Royal Woods--only to learn that he has developed a surprisingly well-thought-out plan to make his and Lori's relationship work even after the move. It is then when Lori agrees to let Bobby stay in Great Lakes City.

From this episode onward, Bobby has a permanent job at the Casagrande mercado.

Selfie Improvement

Bobby about to have his wisdom teeth removed

During Lori's attempts to one-up Carol Pingrey in "Selfie Improvement," Bobby calls Lori to try to get her support for something he is about to undergo. But Lori is so caught up in blind determination that she almost ignores him, although she does call him to invite him to a picnic for a selfie. Later, after Lori has arrived at the picnic area, Bobby drives over to see her, revealing that he has had his wisdom teeth taken out. Astonished that Bobby would drive to see her while still groggy from anesthesia, Lori apologizes to him for being selfish and decides to make the most of the time she has with Bobby.

City Slickers

Bobby comforts Lori after a bad day in the city.

In "City Slickers," Bobby and his sister are happy to see Lori and Lincoln again. Bobby shows Lori the new changes he made to the bodega, while Lori fantasizes about how she would live in the city. However, when her day in the city doesn't go over nearly as well as she planned, Lori returns to Bobby in tears and admits that she is reconsidering her plans to live with Bobby in the city. But Bobby comforts her by recalling how he ran into the backside of a police horse on his first day in the city. He then tells her that, with time, she will be able to adjust to city life.

Missed Connection

Bobby and Lori fear that they are losing their connection.

In "Missed Connection," Bobby and Lori are trying to talk to each other over the phone, but after a couple of misunderstandings, the two end up having a really awkward conversation, and when they hang up, Lori and Bobby are left in tears, worrying that a long-distance relationship isn't working for them. However, with encouragement from their respective relatives, Lori and Bobby decide to do something for one another to show that they truly care for each other.

Bobby tries to send a heart-shaped pizza to Lori, but Lana and Lola, who answer the door when the pizza arrives and think that it's shaped like a butt, eat it themselves. Then, Bobby tries recording himself on a normal day at the bodega, places the video into a flash drive, and is prepared to mail it off to Lori. However, Carl, in an attempt to woo Lori himself, intercepts Bobby's flash drive and switches it with his own, which contains a video of Carl singing off-key while playing a guitar. Then, Bobby and Lori try virtual dating, where they watch the same movie together while talking on the phone. However, Bobby's video constantly buffers, and Lori's video is plagued by ads.

Realizing that they need to be together, Bobby and Lori meet each other at the Loud house (after Lori has tried to pay Bobby a visit at the bodega). However, their plans to have a romantic date (high school, hot-air balloon ride, restaurant, etc.) all fall flat, and finally, at Flip's Food & Fuel, Bobby and Lori give in to despair and weep hysterically before deciding to go their own separate ways. Ten minutes after they have left Flip's, however, Bobby has locked himself in the bathroom, so Lori calls the fire department. While they wait, Lori and Bobby end up having a real conversation, and they discover that all their constant worrying made them realize that their love for each other hasn't changed at all. At that moment, the firemen arrive, free Bobby from the bathroom, and drive the two back home.

The Loudest Thanksgiving

Bobby and Lori's first kiss.

In "The Loudest Thanksgiving," Bobby and Lori reveal their respective families' plans for Thanksgiving Day. Both lovers are so amazed that they want to spend Thanksgiving together. However, their families, eavesdropping on them, decide to appease their teenager in love into staying with them forever. In Bobby's case, the Casagrandes try to bribe him with food prepared for the dinner, have him be in Frida's painting, make him help in creating the paper chain decoration, and tell the story of a young man who left his family for Thanksgiving. Soon enough, however, Bobby becomes suspicious and confronts his family for trying to get him to stay, but Hector, his grandfather, guilt-trips him into staying with the Casagrandes for Thanksgiving, as neither Bobby nor his sister have seen their extended family for five years.

Realizing that they cannot leave their families for Thanksgiving, Bobby suggests that they should have their families get together instead, but when Lori asks who should host, the families, who have once again been eavesdropping on their conversation, each insist that they host. For lack of decision, Lori does a coin flip, and Bobby calls heads, but the coin lands on tails, which means that both families will spend Thanksgiving with the Louds.

Because of these results, the Louds and the Casagrandes decide to one-up each other in an attempt to get Bobby and Lori to decide who they will want to spend the rest of their Thanksgivings with. First, the Louds use Bobby's love of theatre to stage their annual Thanksgiving play: Lori pardoning the Thanksgiving turkey. Then, after Bobby gets invested in the play, the Casagrandes have him do their annual turkey dance. But during dinner, the two families' competition over food escalates into a food fight, driving Lori and Bobby to flee to Flip's Food & Fuel and call their respective families out on their constant bickering, deciding that they should spend Thanksgiving by themselves from now on. The families, admitting that no one wants to be alone on Thanksgiving, decide to get along for Lori and Bobby's sake.

This episode is notable for showing Bobby and Lori's first kiss.

Driving Ambition

Bobby and Lori's future family.

In "Driving Ambition," Bobby appears in a vision Lori has of her future, being married to Lori and the stay-at-home dad of her eleven children. Notably, there are more boys among Bobby and Lori's children than among Lori and her siblings.

Roll Model with the Casagrandes

Bobby and Ronnie Anne when they were younger

"Roll Model with the Casagrandes" reveals some insight into Bobby and Ronnie Anne's youth: in Bobby's preteen and early teenage years, Ronnie Anne, who was about six to eight years old at the time, would copy everything Bobby did, as she looked up to him as a hero.

Pranks for the Memories with the Casagrandes

Bobby and his male cousins get pranked by Ronnie Anne and Carlota.

"Pranks for the Memories with the Casagrandes" reveals some more insight into Bobby and Ronnie Anne's younger years: Bobby reveals that when he and Ronnie Anne were children, Ronnie Anne would prank him all the time, to the point where he now cannot grow hair on a portion of his face. When he finds out about Ronnie Anne and Carlota's attempts to prank CJ, Carl, and Carlitos for all the times they pranked Carlota, Bobby joins the boys' side, pranking Ronnie Anne and Carlota as payback for all of Ronnie Anne's pranks against him. When the girls find out about this, they prank the boys by spraying them with pickle juice and covering them in catnip, thus allowing the alley cats to chase them!

Store Wars with the Casagrandes

Bobby and Ronnie Anne stumble into a new supermarket...

In "Store Wars with the Casagrandes," a new supermarket, the Hi and Buy, has opened next to the family mercado. This supermarket is so massive that even the mercado's most frequent shoppers have decided to shop there instead. Fearing that the mercado will get shut down by the Hi and Buy, Bobby and his family try to copy the Hi and Buy's every move, from free samples to deliveries to staying open all night. The last method proves a disaster, as the entire family becomes increasingly sleep-deprived. Thus, Bobby comes to realize that there is a way that the mercado can stay open: they know their customers very well, and as long as they continue selling on what everybody wants, they can keep business running.

Schooled!

Bobby helps Lori move into Fairway University.

In "Schooled!," Bobby tries to help Lori, now eighteen years old, move into a suitable dorm room at Fairway University. However, the dorms at Fairway University have their own respective quirks: the quiet floor demands that all its residents should remain silent at all times, the residents at the driving range floor are constantly flinging golf balls from room to room (rendering even going through the hallway hazardous), each resident at the caddy floor has their own caddy who monitors their every move, and the sand trap floor is flooded with sand. But after Lincoln has inspired Lori to make the most of whatever situation she's in, Bobby again helps Lori get a dorm room, only to find themselves in the water hazard floor. Lori decides to have a dorm room in this floor, even though she and Bobby are up to their knees in water.

Ghosted!

In "Ghosted!", Bobby is face timing Lori in the very beginning of the episode. He then tells her it's kind of dark, then Lori says if she doesn't do well, she could lose her scholarship. In the mercado, Vito says he has been waiting for fifteen minutes and that his spumoni is melting. Bobby apologetically tells Lori that he has to go and hangs up.

Camped!

In "Camped!", Lori is trying to face time Bobby, but constantly fails because of Camp Mastodon's internet service.

Stress Test

Bobby is unhappy with his failure.

In "Stress Test," Bobby is having trouble passing his BAT (Big Academic Test) because his anxiety drastically hinders his ability to remember things, even his own name. Sympathizing with his plight, Carlos, Rosa, and Carlota use various methods to help Bobby pass.

Carlos tries putting him through several procedures, such various exercises, cutting down on what he eats, and having him sleep upside-down in freezing conditions. Rosa tries using various superstitions, such as rubbing an egg all over him to get rid of negative energy (much to Ronnie Anne's disgust), banging pots and pans together to drive off evil spirits, having him drink a cup of boiled herbs, and filling his backpack with countless lucky charms. Carlota also tries to boost his confidence by giving him a haircut and having him wear a new suit.

After all these methods fail, Bobby returns to the apartment with tears running down his face and announces that he's calling it quits. However, as Bobby works in the mercado, Ronnie Anne discovers to her surprise that Bobby has supreme math skills when it comes to pricing and coupons. This causes Ronnie Anne to inspire Bobby to take the test in a mock-up of the mercado, whereupon he finally passes his BAT test.

Flee Market

Bobby and Lori during their pizza-versary

In "Flee Market," Bobby and Lori are preparing for their "pizza-versary," which is the anniversary of when they ate pizza together for the first time at Gus' Games and Grub. The moment they hang up, Bobby asks Hector if he can cover for him tomorrow. Hector says that he can't, as he's attending a convention, but asks Bobby to let Ronnie Anne, CJ, and Carl watch over the mercado for him. Bobby doesn't think they're responsible enough to do so, so the next day, Bobby attempts to instruct Ronnie Anne, CJ, and Carl on how to run the mercado, but the kids are so eager to let Bobby go on his "pizza-versary" they send him out and take charge.

Paranoid about what Ronnie Anne, CJ, and Carl could do to his mercado, Bobby picks up Lori and sends her to a pizzeria in Great Lakes City instead of Gus' Games and Grub. Upon arriving at Great Lakes City, Bobby complains about all the changes Ronnie Anne, CJ, and Carl have made to the mercado (switching the music to K-pop, placing the mangoes by the fish, etc.). Annoyed that he is too picky, Ronnie Anne, CJ, and Carl decide to leave the mercado, leaving Bobby to constantly switch between his "pizza-versary" date and his job at the mercado.

Before long, however, Lori becomes suspicious and follows Bobby to the mercado. As Bobby apologizes, revealing how he tried to put Ronnie Anne, CJ, and Carl in charge, Lori explains to him that his family cares about the mercado, it's just that everyone has their own method of how they run the place. Realizing that he has a hard time letting things go, Bobby makes it up to Ronnie Anne, Carl and CJ by letting them run the store their own way. The three forgive Bobby, and let him and Lori have their pizza-versary on the rooftop of the apartment building.

This Bird Has Flown

Bobby is furious with Sergio!

In "This Bird Has Flown," Sergio has been getting on Bobby's nerves lately. Sergio does such things as mess with Bobby's hair, leave feathers in his breakfast, and even upstage him as employee of the month. Finally, when Sergio poops on him, Bobby is furious and tells him to "fly away and never come back". Deeply offended, Sergio flies off.

The next day, Bobby learns that his family is worried sick over Sergio. This makes him feel so guilty he convinces Carl to make a fake Sergio, which is basically a drone covered with feathers and a guacamole dispenser to resemble poop. With Carl's help, Bobby manages to fool his family into believing that Sergio has come back. However, a malfunction with the guacamole dispenser causes the charade to slowly fall apart, and then, the drone gets destroyed after slamming into Par's delivery truck. Upon seeing his whole family crying, Bobby, knowing he can't hide it anymore, sadly confesses that he's responsible for Sergio being missing. At that moment, the real Sergio comes back, saying that he was crashing out at Sancho's in an attempt to teach Bobby a lesson. Reunited with his feathered friend, Bobby and Sergio engage in a hug, each admitting they miss each other.

Never Friending Story

Bobby and Par become besties.

When Bobby realizes that he has no friends in the city in "Never Friending Story," Ronnie Anne decides to help him make some friends. However, the personalities of Bobby's would-be friends and/or Bobby's own clumsiness prevents him from forming a good bond with them. Finally, Bobby befirends Par when he discovers that they have several things in common like their ability to tell when peaches are ripe, having long distance girlfriends (with names that rhyme), and using the same brand of hair wax. But before long, Bobby learns, to his horror, that Par is a thrill-seeker who likes picnicking with cheetahs, rafting on the sewer rats, plunging down a waterfall in a barrel, going through a stunt course on a motorcycle, and relaxing in a Jacuzzi with a baby shark.

Later, while Bobby and Par are going tandem skydiving, Bobby confesses to Par that he's not into thrill-seeking. However, Par tells Bobby that he should've told him sooner, saying that he's willing to compromise and says that they can still be friends.

Slink or Swim

Bobby and Carl having fun at the pool.

In "Slink or Swim," Bobby learns that Carl doesn't really know how to swim, so Bobby comforts him by offering to teach him how to swim in exchange for Carl teaching him how to tie his shoes. At first, neither Carl nor Bobby's lessons go too well, and they eventually decide not to go on speaking terms. But then, when Bobby stands up for Carl, the two cousins make amends and proceed to teach each other what they were teaching before. In time, the two gradually succeed in accomplishing their goals, as Carl finally knows how to swim and Bobby can successfully tie his shoes.

Bo Bo Business

Bobby working for Mr. Hong.

in "Bo Bo Business," Bobby wants to try out some new ideas (free wi-fi, commercials, petting a bunny). But when Hector shoots them all down, Bobby decides to take his ideas to Mr. Hong's Korean market. Mr. Hong accepts Bobby's ideas, and his market soon outperforms Hector's mercado. However, in Mr. Hong's absence, Bobby's "pet the bunny" idea ends with the bunnies going out of control. Hector initially decides to just watch him suffer, but as he looks at Bobby being smothered by the bunnies, Hector is unable to see him suffer anymore, and he and Ronnie Anne proceed to pull him out and get to work on rounding up the bunnies to get them back in their cages. Mr. Hong fires Bobby when he sees the mess Bobby has made, but Bobby has learned his lesson, and Hector is at least willing to let Bobby make a commercial for the mercado.

What's Love Gato Do With It?

Cat or not, the family still loves Bobby.

"What's Love Gato Do With It?" has Bobby get hypnotized by a magician during Alexis' birthday party. Every time a bell rings, he will think he's a cat, and when the word "papaya" is spoken, he'll turn back to normal. Initially confused, the family eventually figures out that Bobby has been hypnotized. Unfortunately, the magician cannot undo the spell, so Bobby leaves his family to live as a stray cat. But Ronnie Anne, Carlota, CJ, and Carl take him back anyway, reminding him that cat or not, Bobby will still be loved by his family. Even better for Bobby, the spell is broken when he hits his head falling from a cat tree.

Guilt Trip

Bobby, Ronnie Anne, and their mom share a group hug.

In "Guilt Trip," Bobby and Ronnie Anne learn that their mother has always wanted to travel overseas, but has never had the time. Believing that they're responsible for her not fulfilling her dream, they decide to win her a trip to anywhere in the world. But all their attempts (a Korean market prize wheel challenge, an Italian pizza-eating challenge, a Japanese sumo wrestling contest, and even a dance battle) fail. Feeling defeated, Bobby and Ronnie Anne tell their mother everything. Their mother is touched by her children's thoughtfulness and, in her own words, raising them "has been the journey of a lifetime."

A Very Casagrandes Christmas

Bobby is excited for Las Posadas.

"A Very Casagrandes Christmas" takes place on Christmas Eve. Both Bobby and Ronnie Anne are very excited to celebrate the last night of Las Posadas with the Casagrandes, but their plans go awry when the Changs, the Nakamuras, Vito, Mrs. Kernicky, Alexis and his mom, and Maybelle all come over for the holidays, their own Christmas plans having been ruined. Convinced that the neighbors are ruining their Nochebuena, Bobby and Ronnie Anne decide to fix everyone's plans, as well as save their own plans.

Unfortunately, Bobby and Ronnie Anne's father Arturo ends up trapped in the Hi 'n' Buy supermarket, so they go out to save him. After a run-in with Becky and her brother Ricky, Bobby and Ronnie Anne reach the store and, after a phone call with Par, they get in to save Arturo. However, it isn't long before a snow plow inadvertently causes a wall of snow to trap them inside. To make matters worse, none of them have a phone to call for help (Ronnie Anne's is dead, Arturo's is dead and damaged from masa, and Bobby's is still outside).

Just as Bobby and Ronnie Anne lament that their Christmas is ruined, their family and neighbors arrived to rescue them by drilling a hole in the snow wall. Moments later, Bobby and Ronnie Anne allow the neighbors to join their family in caroling and the subsequent party at the Casagrande apartment.

Dynamic Do-Over

After an encounter with a stressed-out actor causes Carl to lose his faith in El Falcon in "Dynamic Do Over", Bobby, who took him to see El Falcon in person, blames himself and takes on the role of El Falcon himself. With some help from his family, Bobby rebuilds Carl's faith in El Falcon by defeating El Dragon (Carlos), La Cobra (Carlota), and La Tortuga (Rosa). However, Bobby is far more nervous when he has to deal with a real burglar. By the time the burglar is arrested, Bobby's ruse is exposed, and Carl loses faith in both El Falcon and Bobby. But just as the two are about to be crushed by a falling billboard, El Falcon comes in to save their lives. This not only fully restores Carl's faith in El Falcon, but also the actor's own faith in his role.

Tee'd Off

TBA

The Loud House Movie

Bobby thinks that Lori's broken up with him.

When the Louds arrive to Scotland, Lori tries to inform Bobby about this news. However, the dodgy reception in Scotland makes it difficult for the two lovers to understand each other, and Lori's garbled up speech rearranges Lori's audio in making sound like she's breaking up with him. Ronnie Anne, having overheard the entire conversation, believes that Lori broke up with him and encourages him by telling him that he should prove to Lori that he alone is her "Boo-Boo Bear." Thus, Bobby decides to go to Scotland personally.

At the end of the film, just as the Louds depart Scotland to head back home, Bobby arrives in a submarine and asks the nearby fisherman where she can find Lori Loud. The fisherman silently responds by giving him a telescope and focus on the departing ship, which has Lori on it. Realizing he arrived to Scotland a few moments too late, Bobby screams in despair.

During the credits, Bobby, covered with patches of mud and his clothes all tattered up, is carried by Lori, having arrived back to the US.

Personality

New Bobby render.png
Bobby generally has a relaxed and carefree attitude and is similar to Leni in terms of perception and intelligence. He is an easy-going, kind, and laid back person who enjoys having fun and hanging out with his friends. However, his mood can shift dramatically if he is out of contact with Lori for even a short amount of time, or if he believes that something bad has happened to her. He is also very protective of his younger sister Ronnie Anne, even going so far as to break up with Lori when he heard that Lincoln had insulted her.

Bobby is an especially understanding and forgiving person. In "Cheater by the Dozen", he forgave the Loud siblings quickly even though they falsely accused him of being a two-timer. Furthermore, he has been shown to be generally friendly towards Clyde, despite the fact that Clyde hated him and often tried to sabotage his and Lori's dates (but Clyde has seemingly gotten over his crush on Lori since then, as evidenced in Exchange of Heart and Brave the Last Dance).

He has been shown to act a bit silly. In "Undie Pressure", Bobby's answer for being late to meet up at Lori's house is due to him having to wait for a chicken to cross the road. In "Cover Girls", Bobby was unable to distinguish between Lori and Lily while Lily was dressed as Lori, despite Lori being present (although disguised as Lincoln). He was also unable to pick up on Luna's ruse to free Lincoln and Clyde from the Royal Woods Mall jail when she dressed up as their mother, as seen in the episode "For Bros About to Rock".

His absent-minded nature can also cause turmoil and conflict. In "A Fair to Remember", Bobby neglected Lori to the point of tears when he began spending more time hanging out with Lincoln that he did with her.

A running gag throughout the first season and part of the second is that Bobby has had many different jobs. It is unclear why he has worked so many, possibly for the extra money, or to impress Lori, or perhaps because he keeps losing them. In "For Bros About to Rock", Bobby states that Lori loves a man in uniform. When Bobby and his family moved in with their big-city cousins he began working in the bodega, thus ending the gag.

Although generally dimwitted, Bobby has had moments where he is uncommonly clever. He has been shown to have good business acumen for his age, as seen in "The Loudest Mission: Relative Chaos", where he helped his grandfather run the bodega and helped rearrange the store to increase sales, and "Bo Bo Business", where he came up with many ideas to make money at both the Casagrande mercado and Hong's market. He has also been shown to be capable of coming up with a complicated plan, such as when he thought of a way to make his and Lori's relationship work even after he moves to another city to live with his big city cousins. Bobby also showed a slight vengeful streak in "Pranks for the Memories with the Casagrandes" working with his male cousins to prank Ronnie Anne and Carlota to get even for all the pranks Ronnie Anne had played on him.

Bobby is very dedicated to his work and tries to leave a good impression on people, especially his father Arturo as well as Lori. He sometimes shows fear that he may not be good enough for the people he cares about, or that they might ditch him and leave him behind altogether. If something were to happen that would cause Lori to dump him or Ronnie Anne to completely distrust him, he'd never be able to forgive himself. As a result, he might push himself harder than he really needs to. Despite this, deep down he knows his family cares about him and will always turn to them for help whenever he feels like he needs it.

Much like his girlfriend, Bobby is very emotional and cries easily. He may become despondent and weep uncontrollably when he's feeling lonely[3], when things go wrong[4], or when he thinks he's messed things up in some way[5][6]. It is implied that he got this trait from his father[7].

Nick Description

Bobby is Lori's super cool boyfriend and a man of many jobs. When he's not a pizza delivery boy, pool lifeguard, mall security guard, or grocery stock boy, he can be found texting Lori. Bobby may be dense, but he sure is smooth!


Appearance

Bobby is tall as Lori. He has tan skin, and black hair with a tuft combed upwards. He wears blue jeans, brown shoes with multiple white stripes, a black belt with a gold buckle, and a cream-colored T-shirt under a green unbuttoned shirt.

His original design was completely different from its current design. In this one, he has a more urban outfit, including a bonnet covering his eyes and headset. He also was going to have freckles on his cheeks and more scruffy hair.

In Season 1 and "11 Louds a Leapin'", his eyelids were the same color as his skin.

Alternate Versions and Alter-egos

Bebe

Main article: Genderbent Royal Woods

Bebe is Bobby's female counterpart. She constantly chats with Loki (Lori). She doesn't appear physically in the episode, but her name was shown on Loki's phone on the initial sketch of the boys.

Boo-Boo Bear

Boo-Boo Bear is Bobby's story counterpart and the boyfriend of the Mermaid (Lori's story alter ego), who appears in a photo in "A Dark and Story Night". His appearance as a literal bear is a reference to Lori's "Boo-Boo Bear" pet name for Bobby. He and the mermaid are constantly connected like Bobby and Lori, with the mermaid using a crystal shard (and later a water wheel) to power up her phone.

Trivia

  • In the episode "Butterfly Effect", Lincoln apparently thinks that Lori secretly fears that Bobby might end up leaving her for Leni.
  • Although Bobby's first on-screen appearance is in "Undie Pressure", he can be heard through Lori's cell phone as a voice message in "Get the Message".
  • Bobby was on vacation in France during the events of "The Green House".
