The series received a positive reception. Joyce Slaton of Common Sense Media described the series as a "charming Loud House spin-off about Mexican American family." She further noted that cartoon violence only happens infrequently, with differences between characters rarely coming up, and said that while "humor can be slightly vulgar," it is a lot of fun, and is "worth your while."[20]
