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/Jetix, which ran the series. This cartoon station was hugely popular in Europe due to other kids' networks (Disney Channel, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network) being either unavailable, having bad coverage or suffering from technical errors. Many viewers were also attracted to the show's grounded humor and characters, which stood out among some of the more outlandish cartoons that aired at the time. People from those countries who grew up around the 2000s consider the show one of the most cherished animated series ever, and many 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. Even here on IMDb, statistics show that most of the show's high ratings came from outside the US. See more »
The first season had real life introductions featuring Louie Anderson discussing something he did as a child, etc. and that's usually what the episode was about. When second season came, the introductions were replaced with an opening and theme song. See more »
Why? Because this shoe comes from a time when Fox Kids didn't suck so much. Life with Louie is about comic Louie Anderson as a kid. The characters were great, particularly Andy Anderson (Louie's dad). Every episode was filled with many jokes and first class humor. If you think back to your own childhood, you can really relate to several episodes. Life with Louie was one of the best Saturday morning shows ever. If you can ever track it down, watch it.
