Did You Know?

Trivia

The cartoon became a massive cult favorite in Eastern Europe and Russia, due to its repeated showings during the 2000s and good quality dubbing work, and also thanks to the wide availability of the children's channel Fox Kids, which ran the series. Many were attracted to the grounded humor and characters too, which stood out among some of the more outlandish animated comedies. People from those countries who grew up around that time consider the show one of the most cherished animated series ever, and several of its jokes are quoted to this day. In a 2016 interview, Louie Anderson claimed he had 300,000 Twitter followers from those regions alone. In comparison, the show is mostly forgotten in the United States. See more »

Best Saturday morning series EVER!
6 August 2002 | by DeborahPainter855See all my reviews

I was so sad when the series ended years ago. Like the ones in "Fat Albert And The Cosby Kids", the characters in "Life With Louie" were distinctive and funny. Having a grown up Louie doing the voice for himself as a kid didn't detract from the show at all; in fact, it made it better. Louie wasn't a grown up in the body of a kid like the "Peanuts" characters. He was a talented youngster with peculiar, well meaning parents. Don't we all know people like them? Sure, you know you do.
