Bud Grouse (more commonly referred to as Mr. Grouse) is the Loud family's elderly, curmudgeonly next-door neighbor on The Loud House. As his surname would suggest, he is often annoyed by the noisy antics of the Louds, and sometimes appears to heckle them. He originally hatred of the Louds and their belongings end up in his yard and is known to confiscate said things as punishment. As annoying as he finds the Louds to be, though, he is willing to do favors for the family in exchange for Lynn Sr.'s homemade lasagna.
In "11 Louds a Leapin'", it is revealed that Mr. Grouse, like the Loud kids, is from a rather big family himself, but they live far away and he is not easily able to visit them. When the Louds and the McBrides helped him by giving him a bus card so that he could visit his family, he became kinder and gave back the stuff he stole from them, and even gave his old sled to Lincoln. Subsequent episodes show that, despite retaining his crabby exterior, his new-found friendship with the Loud family does indeed stick; he babysits Lily in "Breaking Dad", and later enjoys watching sports with Lynn Jr. in "Good Sports". And in "Coupe Dreams" at the end of the show's fourth season, he sells his old car to Lori for her to go to college.
