Episode Information

"Overnight Success" is the seventeenth episode of the first season of The Loud House.


Lincoln invites Clyde to a sleepover, but gets jealous when Clyde wants to hang out with his sisters.


Lincoln is excited to have Clyde come over for a sleepover, especially since his father usually forbids sleepovers, due to his sisters' past efforts leading to disaster. When Clyde arrives at the house, Lincoln wants him to strictly stick to his long, detailed itinerary, including watching the 5-hour director's cut of King of the Rings. However, Clyde prefers to join in the girls' interests, and has fun with them, causing Lincoln to freak out over how much time they're wasting. Eventually, the two friends have an argument over how the sleepover should go, and they have a falling-out.
