Howard and Harold McBride are the adoptive parents of Clyde on The Loud House. They are overprotective of their son and very rarely let him do anything unsupervised. Howard has a tendency to get overemotional while watching Clyde grow up. He has red hair and buck teeth. Harold is more calm and collected. He has thinning black hair and wears a sweater vest with a bow tie.
Often mentioned by Clyde, the first episode to feature them is "A Tale of Two Tables". However, they are only talked about and never actually shown in this episode. Their first physical appearance is in "Overnight Success", in which they walk their son over to the Loud family's house for a sleepover. They are also featured prominently in the episode "Attention Deficit", in which they try to help Lincoln with his science project, and "Baby Steps", in which Clyde thinks they are going to adopt another baby. They also have a brief cameo in "Roughin' It"; in this episode, Lincoln and Clyde get lost in the woods and must work together to make their way back to the Dads' bed-and-breakfast.
The pair broke Nickelodeon barriers, becoming the first pair of married male characters in Nicktoons history.
