Carlos "CJ" Casagrande Jr. is a recurring character in The Loud House, and a main character in its spin-off "The Casagrandes".


CJ is the oldest son and the second oldest child of the Casagrande siblings. He also has Down syndrome.

Carlos Jr. has Down Syndrome, which is exhibited through his childlike actions and lack of physical development, while in his teen years. He loves to play children's games like pirates and superheroes, and he can easily befriend any person, like Lincoln.

Carlos Jr. is also surprisingly perceptive. Many times, he notices things before other members of his family. For instance, when Lincoln and Lori come to visit the Casagrandes, CJ is the first to notice that they have arrived, as the other members of his family are all distracted with their own tasks. On another occasion, when the family notices Ronnie Anne is standing under an air conditioning unit, CJ is the first to realize the danger that the air conditioning unit might fall on her. He is also the first one to notice that he has been sprayed with pickle juice in "Pranks for the Memories with the Casagrandes".


Carlos Jr. is a portly and stocky Mexican-American teenage boy with black scruffy hair. He wears a yellow shirt, a black bow tie with red outlines, dark blue shorts, white socks and blue shoes with green laces. Due to his disability, despite being 13 years old, where most kids have already or are just starting puberty, CJ is very short in stature. Due to Down Syndrome he has small eyes that are further apart.


  • He is the first character in the show to have a developmental disability.
  • His bio in "Live Life Loud!" reveals that he has Down syndrome and that the reason he wears a bow tie is because he always asks to wear it.
  • "Mexican Makeover" reveals that he can tolerate spicier food than his siblings (except Carlitos) and cousins can.
  • "Short Cut" reveals that he is good at cutting and styling hair and works as Carl's "hair guy".
  • "Flight Plan" reveals that he usually enjoys airplane rides, but can get motion sickness if the plane flips over too often.
  • "Spin Off" reveals that he is an excellent sign spinner, can perform stage magic, and always feels nervous about competing against others.
  • "Summer Special" reveals that what he likes best about camping is the ghost stories.
  • According to a promotional video, he is a few inches taller than Lynn.
