"Clyde and His Dads" (also known as "Clyde's Two Dads") is an Internet-exclusive short, based on The Loud House.


Clyde and his dads try to get Cleopawtra and Nepurrtiti in their cages for a vet appointment, which proves easier said than done.


At the McBride house, Clyde, Howard, and Harold are hiding in the attic. Clyde says that Cleopawtra and Nepurrtiti have a vet appointment today, and Howard and Harold are horrified, since the last time the two cats had a vet appointment, the task of getting them in their cage was a dangerous task. However, Clyde says he has a plan on catching the two. He suggest that they try to sneak up on the cats so they capture them, but that doesn't turn out well when Cleopawtra and Nepurrtiti notice them trying to capture them. The McBrides, with minor injuries, attempt to go with another plan, this time, by charging at them while they sleep. However, like the first plan, that plan doesn't go well. With even more injuries, Clyde presents his third plan: cucumbers. A cucumber is tossed at the cats, and the cats are horrified. Surrounded by cucumbers, the cats discover a box labeled "Cucumber Free Zone", and jump into it. Suddenly, it's revealed that it was a cage they jumped into. With the cats captured, the McBrides begin celebrating.

Sometime later, Clyde and Harold are hiding in the attic. Harold reveals that Clyde got the dates wrong: the cats don't have a vet appointment today, but Howard has an appointment at the dentist today. In the end, Clyde and Harold attempt to catch Howard, which proves to be just as hard as trying to catch the cats.
