    This page needs some cleaning up to meet Loathsome Characters Wiki's quality standards.

    The following reason has been specified: This page has more tags then needed as some of them contradict or say the same thing but in a different word. Let's not forget bad quality 16 drags the page a bit longer than needed and needs to be TRIMED DOWN. while for the good quality's 12 needs to be shortened as its drags ON and On. Plus can you tone the hate down a bit here as it seems like this page wants to hate on Louie farley more than it needs to.
    If this page looks good to you, you may remove this template.

    Return to the Scene of the Burp
    "George figured Louie might grow up to be a vampire one day. He already knew how to suck the fun out of everything-"
    Lice Check
    "Louie always sounds confident," Alex reminded George. "Even when he's wrong. And he's wrong a lot."

    Revenge of the Killer Worms

    Louie Farley is the main antagonist of the children’s book series George Brown, Class Clown, created by Nancy Krulik and illustrated by Aaron Blecha. He is the younger brother of Sam Farley and the youngest son to his parents; his father; Mr. Farley, and his mother; Mrs. Farley. He is also a student that attends Edith B. Sugarman Elementary School in the fourth grade, and is known as the rich kid of Beaver Brook; being the most disliked in terms of character. He has the tendency to bully the main protagonist; George Brown, a classmate of his, that he bullies for his big burping problems and the unintentional unnecessary behavior he has done within the series.

    He has appeared in every single book that has been released for the series.

    Family

    • Mr. Farley (father)
    • Mrs. Farley (mother)
    • Sam Farley (older brother)

    Personality

    Louie Farley wants to be the center of attention in all of Beaver Brook. Only to prove his worth as a member of the Farley’s, who happen to be one of the richest families in the whole of Beaver Brook. He is pretty mean and looks down on others who don't quite match up to his standards or doesn't take his side of things, such as George Brown, who he considers as an enemy rival to him.

    Why He's Intentionally Far from Good

    1. Just like several characters on this wiki, he is a mean popular boy stereotype. This is due to the overkill of poor writing he has as a character and an antagonist, since he acts more like a spoiled nuisance , thanks to his status in the wealthy upper class.
    2. He acts absolutely horrendous every time he appears, as he has done things that an evil child would do (even things that are illegal), which is ironic since he is the main antagonist.
    3. Every time he does something, he usually does it to make himself look and feel good most of the time, without considering anyone else’s feelings in the process.
    4. He is overly talkative, as he never stops blurting about the “good nature” he always brags about.
      • He says that he is a better player than George in “Three Burps and You’re Out!” all because he is switching positions with him, when George and the other team members are better at the game than he is.
      • He also tends to take credit for something he didn’t do, even though he was clearly working for others or when someone else did it.
        • When his brother; Sam Farley (who is admittingly the best representation of his family nowadays and his good big brother), compliments him and his band members; George and Mike, for their original song that they all helped to make in "Trouble Magnet", he flat out boasts a lie that he did all the work, defeating the purpose of being in a band.
        • Not only that, but he also tries to take the credit away from George in the same book when George was complimented for his actions, saying that the dive-bomb was “his own idea”.
        • When Alex gave clarification to the class on how a type of bat and lice are similar in taking blood, he (Louie) claims to have said it himself, just to be laughed at by George in "Lice Check".
        • He read someone's private journal in "Revenge of the Killer Worms", so that he could get a ton of information (mostly about the movie star; Dirk Drek) and look like a celebrity.
      • He does tend to “showcase” some of the items he got first, just like any average spoiled jerk would do.
        • In “World’s Worst Wedgie”, he shows off his RC Dude-on-a-Skateboard and doesn’t share.
        • He talks about his golden ticket in “Wet and Wild”, where he sadistically teases George, Alex and Chris about how he will always be first in line in the water park attractions since he has it, and due to the fact that it’s his birthday. Also, how come it’s allowed to have an expensive ticket when you can wait in line?
          • To be fair, it does somehow work as lines can be long when you attend a water park, especially a popular one.
        • While shopping for clothes with his mother in "Attack of The Tighty Whities!", he boasts about the "interesting" jacket he was getting to George.
        • He showcased his new remote-controlled car in "Return to the Scene of the Burp", only to cause chaos once he started it up.
    5. He tends to play roughly, such as his infamous game; “Killer Ball”, where he and his team throw a ball (usually a hard one, like a soccer ball) at the opposite team, who also have to throw just as hard. Basically, it's just a brutal counterfeit to Dodgeball.
      • One example of this was when he hit a third grade student hard in the head with a ball in “Trouble Magnet”.
      • Another one would include Mike’s statement about the game itself in “World’s Worst Wedgie”. There he claims that he is black and blue from the game (suggesting that he got bruised), and just says that he won’t complain to Louie, due to his status as a “rich” kid.
      • He never follows his rules, as he would always change them to make him win, making the game completely unfair to begin with.
    6. As expected from the main antagonist; he bullies George a lot, since he views George as a “weirdo freak” in his eyes due to George’s silly behavior and never gives any proper concerns about him at all.
      • He (along with Max) stalks him in "Trouble Magnet" along with Alex, where he and Max eavesdrop on their conversation about their school project on Hawaii. Where he later forces George to leave Alex into planning the project they both would work for by himself, when he told him that he had to try out for his band right at that moment.
      • He takes the credit for George’s suggestion of making their own songs for the band.
      • In the aftermath of the talent show, he (Louie) gets so mad at him for committing his silly antics during their time on stage, that he outright fires him. Granted, George shouldn’t have done those things, but as stated before; it was completely unintentional.
        • This is further shown when he quotes; “If I was Mrs. McKeon, I’d take away your recess for a whole year.”.
      • In “World’s Worst Wedgie”, he laughs in a mean manner at George and promotes a suggestive piece of gross humor by saying “behind”, as he assumes that it was George’s answer to his question about the circus he (George) put up. This is ironic, as the franchise itself shows off gross context for the child audience.
      • After George does his unintentional tomfoolery at Louie’s birthday party in “Wet and Wild”, Louie makes a big deal about it by downright accusing him for ruining his party, when he could've just ignored it or figured out a solution to help him.
        • And to add salt to Brown's wound, he acts like a snitch towards him in the said book; by shouting at his mom about what happened. This led his mother to threaten George by stating that she will send him home if he does it again.
      • He willingly calls out on George for freaking out on the spot during the all-star spelling bee in “Attack of the Tighty Whities!”, when in reality; George was just keeping himself from getting into trouble by running away to burst his big burp.
      • When George wins second place on the all-star spelling bee, he calls him a loser when second place isn’t really that bad and George actually made the effort to win and beat Sam Farley’s placement in the all-star spelling bee.
        • Even Sam acts like a good sport by congratulating George for his efforts.
      • When George and his friends were searching for some empty boxseats in their visit to a baseball stadium to see a Beaver Brook Beavers game, Louie yells; "Weirdo warning! There's a weirdo in the ballpark!". Thus embarrassing George in front of a ton of people, including his own friends in “Three Burps and You're Out!”.
        • And to add insult to injury, he sadistically teases him and his friends for being in the nosebleed section of the boxseats.
      • He got unreasonably mad at George during their game against the Kangaroos, all because he didn't tag the opposing player running to a base. But how can George tag the other player when he (Louie) and Sage just wasted his time by scrambling for the ball and either one or the other could've tagged that other player if possible?
    7. He is pretty rude to others as well, as he would often interrupt the flow of various stories to either brag about his pride and/or insert his own opinions into certain arguments disrespectfully in an annoying fashion.
      • He states that circuses are for babies in “World’s Worst Wedgie”, which is wrong and blatantly offensive to those who do, as people over the age of 3 can actually enjoy it as well.
      • In “Wet and Wild”, he sends an email to everyone in his class, stating that he has a long list of toys that he wants for his birthday, so he doesn’t get anything that he considers lame, breaking the real purpose of getting gifts. Though to be fair, it is okay to request certain presents you want, but only if someone asks you what you would like.
      • Before George, Alex and Chris could go down the Tunnel of Terror water slide, Louie immediately cuts in front of them by using his golden ticket, which just shows how impatient he is.
      • When he sees George Brown getting a lifetime free pass after he slid down the Tunnel of Terror, he yells in anger at the sight, to the point where everyone in the water park could hear him and tells the female employee that he should’ve been the one to have that all because “it’s his birthday”.
      • In "Three Burps and You're Out!", he makes fun of people in the baseball stadium that have nosebleeds, which is just adding salt to their wounds.
      • He insults Sage by telling his teammates that it doesn't matter that she can't catch, because he "can catch it" himself due to his position on the third base, which is in front of her placement on the field. This is insulting to his team, as they don't have that much of a choice in choosing a suitable replacement for Chris when he quit on them.
      • When he misses Julianna's catch when practicing batting, he complains by making the excuse that the ball was "too fast".
      • When he finds out that Chris is at home with lice in "Lice Check", he does not give any empathy to Chris' situation, as he sarcastically says bummer and gives a little chuckle.
        • Also in "Dribble, Dribble, Drool!", he provides that same empathetic sarcasm to George's team; Fighting Ferrets, saying how it's awful that they have a "loser" on their team.
      • He bribes the visitors during Career Day by giving them chocolate to visit his dad's booth, to which his father just wastes their precious time on stuff that wasn't well thought out in his plan.
      • When George mentioned how his loss wasn't big of a deal, due to Julianna winning for the school in the tubing event, he ignores his claim and went on his sinister, immature scheme instead, which thankfully didn't fill the cup.
        • He also ignored the fact that they're doing these ski resort contests for China's school library, not to get money for themselves.
    8. He tends to sue people for the pettiest things imaginable.
      • In “World’s Worst Wedgie”, Louie shouts out that he’s gonna sue the Tyler’s Toy Store if they don’t give his money back. Now for the issues…
        • First, why sue someone over a broken toy that’s just fifteen dollars, when it clearly can be fixed or returned if possible?
        • Second, how come Louie doesn’t ask Mr. Tyler (the toy store’s owner), his parents or even his good brother Sam to fix it?
        • Third, due to how many times he probably went to Mr. Tyler’s toy store, it hasn’t been confirmed that Louie had asked Mr. Tyler if he accepts any returns, making the situation even dumber.
        • And fourth, if a return or a simple fix was possible, then why break the product into several pieces to the point of being unusable.
      • He states that his father should sue Pablo Zoocaso (the famous painter Louie worked with), due to the fact that he (Louie) lost in the art show, which is just baffling.
      • Arguably his most infamous and ridiculous moment in this set, is in "Snot Funny!"; where he tries to sue George all because he lost at the tubing race and can't win "his" five thousand dollars, which feels wrong in so many ways imaginable. Even his parents out of all characters don't agree with his dumb reasoning, as they find it just as baffling to how George and the readers see it.
      • He is willing to sue Dice Nieveson if he wears a yellow helmet in the next contest, saying it's "his thing".
      • When Alex hits him with a snowball, he tries to get him sued because of the fun he's (Alex) having with the others.
      • Just because his father is a big-time lawyer, doesn’t mean that he can sue anyone whenever he wants to. He is just wasting his time on these little things that don’t matter entirely.
    9. He has shown some moments where he throws temper tantrums when he doesn't get what he wants, showing how much of a spoiled brat he is.
      • In “World’s Worst Wedgie”, he kicks and stomps his remote-controlled Dude-on-a-Skateboard, damaging it beyond repair all because it literally popped a wheel off, when it could’ve been fixed.
      • When he gets a deserved scolding from both George and the lady in “Wet and Wild” for his dumb reasoning to get a lifetime free pass at the Pirate Island Water Park, he throws a meltdown by jumping up and down on the pool’s water, splashing countless times while stating how he should’ve gotten that pass since “it’s his birthday”.
      • While volunteering to be Mr. Stubbs' hair model during Career Day in "Lice Check", he throws a tantrum by yelling in anger to what Mr. Stubbs told him, as well as giving denial to what he said about him getting lice. He does this by saying; "I can't have lice, Farleys don't get lice.".
      • When he finds out that he can't sue George for losing the tubing event in "Snot Funny!" (which already feels dumb in so many levels), he jumps up and down angrily saying; "No!" in defeat. Even the book makes fun of it by stating how he's similar to a giant three year old with a hissy fit.
    10. There have been several instances where he acted pretty dumb, as his intelligence heavily relies on him jumping to conclusions, rather than using basic common sense for his plans and his perception of logic. This can stem from thinking that he will win a contest despite not thinking about actual strategies (eg: Him yelling in frustration to Mr. Stubbs about lice to scare the people out of his booth during Career Day in "Lice Check", getting distracted by George several times because of his antics like "Three Burps and You're Out!" for looking at his tomfoolery while at bat, being smothered by his "goofiness" in "How Do You Pee in Space?" during the S.A.P. and flopping his "trick" in showing his talent in snowboarding in "Snot Funny".), "seeing" that his family can have all the good things first before others (eg: Getting the chance to meet certain celebrities and other trends like aliens first before others as proof of their wealth with no evidence given in proving his statements.) and acting like a smart aleck for others to think that he knows better.
      • After George clarified to him about Mike’s countdown of stick clicking during their band practice in the same book, he immediately wants to click the sticks and start things off.
        • When applied on the stage, he would just halt the song's performance for him and the group, potentially causing slip hazards on set.
      • He says that there will be another concert where he will do “his dive-bomb”, when he already fired George and doesn’t have a band at all with just two members. He even schedules a day for George to have band practice with him and Mike, when he already fired him.
      • He doesn’t know what sharing actually is, as in “World’s Worst Wedgie”, he says that “sharing” an item is watching it in action by its owner, rather than giving a portion of it for someone else to enjoy.
      • After Mrs. Kelly announces the special guest interaction with the astronaut Major Minor to her class in "How Do You Pee in Space?", he raises his hand in excitement and says that he would be a great interviewer, all because he's... wearing a new suit, also having the biased excuse that interviewers wear suits, much to the frustration of George and the readers.
      • Despite his offensive, aforementioned statement on the Space Adventurers Program as stated before, he is still willing to participate in it's competition, all for the sake of "winning". This makes you wonder; what good will it be if he won the contest? Apparently nothing but harrassment and bullying to the "losers".
      • When he tries to get Dirk Drek's attention, he sings like an evil witch saying random lines of gibberish, leaving some of Dirk's fans to have an awkward moment.
      • He makes a bet with George in "Dribble, Dribble, Drool!", having the punishment being the winner's butler for a short period of time. This makes you question why, as he already treats Max and Mike like that already, as shown previously.
      • He states that no one will serve the ice cream in his father's parlor; Farley's Flying Floats, yet he states that drones will serve them. Sure, drones are objects and not living beings, but he could've just went straight to the point rather than dragging his info on and on.
      • He's probably at his worst in "Return to the Scene of the Burp" in terms of idiocy, as during the drones' work shift in Farley's Flying Floats, he boasts about a new remote-controlled car his mother bought him. While the drones were serving customers, he touched the buttons of the remote of his RC car, causing the drones to malfunction and make a huge mess in the parlor. Even when George tried to help him in the situation, he acts like a smart aleck and keeps pressing buttons on his car remote. It wouldn't be long until his big brother Sam takes his remote, as well as George's advice. What makes this situation even worse, is that Sam later confirms about Louie ignoring his father's instructions about not bringing the RC car to the parlor, making him a very disobedient child to the harmed consumers. He (Louie) didn't even own up to his mistake as well.
      • As stated in WHIFfG#9, he tends to sue others for the dumbest reasons, thus making him unsuitable to actually go to court due to his bad sense of logic.
      • Despite the many times they ruin his lives inadvertently, he is still willing to associate with Max and Mike, even when it's clear that they are unreliable to be his "friends" in the first place.
      • He always doesn’t think about the things he said, nor does he ever think about what he could do to earn his goals successfully, despite it backfiring on him several times.
    11. He thinks that due to his status, he is the “best kid” and also thinks that he is always right, when most of the time he isn't.
      • He tends to be pretty gullible, as in “World’s Worst Wedgie”; he easily pays for two cups of lemonade just because Sage stated that it was “gourmet lemonade”. Not only does he get the lemonade, but when he sees Max and Mike all puckered up because of its sour taste, he asks for a refund when it was already too late to do so. This could’ve all been prevented if he had just asked George, Alex or Chris what they put in the lemonade before paying up to drink it, rather than listening to someone’s biased opinion.
        • Another instance of this happening is in "Three Burps and You're Out", as without any second thought, he agrees with George and Julianna when they both falsely accused Chris for betraying their team by making them look like weaklings. Even when Chris told them the truth, his viewpoint didn't change, leading to the poor artist to understandably rage at them and quit on their team.
      • Similar to how he takes advantage of George, he uses his (George) private diary as a reliable source in getting what he wants in "Revenge of the Killer Worms" (like getting the chance to become popular when he "associates" himself with Dirk Drek), only to find out that it humiliated him later on.
    12. He is never content with what he has and always wants more just for the sake of “winning everything” and being the main title.
    13. Every time someone calls him out for his actions, he would always deny it like a wimp. This just shows how he can't handle criticism.  
      • He basically tends to gaslight others by lying to them.
        • In “Attack of the Tighty Whities!”, when George won and he lost in the spelling bee of Edith B. Sugarman Elementary School, he says that he spelt the word; “crabby”, right with two b’s, when he misspelled it with a one b earlier. And did he forget about Mrs. Kelly disqualifying him?
        • Also in said book, he says that he was gonna congratulate George for his efforts, when he was clearly gonna bully him from the start. He did this all because his big brother Sam asked him if he was being a good sport, lying in the process to prevent him from getting into trouble.
        • When he gets a deserved scolding from George in "Lice Check" for blaming him on "cheating" the bet during Career Day, as he calls him out to be the actual cheater, he (Louie) denies any part in the obvious crime he committed, along with stating that no one can prove it and that George used his "cheating" tactics to prevent himself from getting lice.
          • This feels questionable, coming from the fact that he (Louie) obviously cheated as stated before and that he still owned up to losing the bet, despite his "methods" being seen by George and other people earlier in the event. Other than that, the argument he created with George is just ridiculous anyway.
        • To get out of a report on his accidental collision with the rule snitch supervisor in "Dribble, Dribble, Drool!", he tries reasoning to the supervisor, saying that the rule book is "outdated" and that it doesn't apply during the time of the wheelie sneakers, as well as saying that; "Farleys don't go on a report.".
        • When George claims to have evidence on Louie's error after the game in said book, he (Louie) just tells him to forget it because his team "won" without having the urge to peep into George's camera.
        • Despite the mad faces, as well as the well-deserved scolding from both his brother; Sam and his mother for his incident in "Return to the Scene of the Burp", he blames the mess on the remote though it's clear to everyone else at the scene of the parlor that he did it.
    14. Moreover, he acts like a sore loser like Lynn Loud Jr. and Big Tex Arkana, as he does cheat, frames others for his own suffering, denies his own actions and acts whiny when he doesn't get his way, as stated previously.
      • One example of this would be the time when he was able to play his infamous game; “Killer Ball” with the rest of the class in “Attack of the Tighty Whities”, due to Mr. Trainer letting him volunteer as the gym teacher. As it was a backwards day at the time this was played. When they played it, and George was able to hit Louie, he (Louie) immediately stopped the game just because he was out. Even when Julianna asked him why, he just says; “I’m the teacher, I don’t give a reason.” Just because he created the sport and played it with others, doesn’t excuse him to portray bad sportsmanship.
      • When George wins against him in the Space Adventurers Program contest in "How Do You Pee in Space?", he (Louie) just glares at him like the sore loser he is.
      • As mentioned in previous pointers, he blames George for his aforementioned loss by attempting to sue him, not caring about Julianna's win for their school in the tubing event, throwing a tantrum over not suing him and most importantly; giving him a lack of focus and strategy during contest, making George the problem, despite it being his own fault for doing so in the first place in "Snot Funny!".
      • Let's not forget the other tantrums he threw at his unreasonable losses back in WHIFfG#11 and his other attempts in suing others for not winning something that "he deserved", as stated in WHIFfG# 10.
    15. This child has a huge status of hypocrisy.
      • He always shows hatred to George, when he is literally associated with him by having him in his band in “Trouble Magnet”.
        • Not only that, but he also sends him his (Louie) pointless Life with Louie webisodes even though most of them aren't good in portraying him (Louie) as a menace and inviting him to his father's ice cream parlor to give free ice cream to him and their other consumers.
      • As stated in WHIFfG#2.1, he takes credit for the dive-bomb George made during their act in the talent show due to the cheering he (George) gained in “Trouble Magnet”, when he was mad about it earlier.
      • He tells George to have killer instinct "like him", only to show that he loses his guard because of the dumb planning he always has in the franchise's whole pizza.
        • This is further proven when he says that Farley’s always wins, when he clearly lost countless competitions to others; most notably George.
          • Even Max and Mike know about this very well and aren’t easily blinded by Louie's delusional mind.
      • He always criticizes George by calling him a “weirdo freak”, “dweeb” and other comments, yet he acts the very way he insults him by suing others for no valid reason (as stated in WHIFfG#10), throwing those worthless temper tantrums (as stated in WHIFfG#11) and the many other horrible things that he has done, as stated in the previous pointers above.
      • He frames George for his own suffering, when it’s clearly his own fault for doing those bad things in the first place like a foolish dimwit.
      • He thinks that George is a joke, when he acts like one himself due to being immature.
      • He states that he is “sharing” his toy in “World’s Worst Wedgie”, when he clearly isn’t due to his explanation as stated in WHIFfG#9.4.
      • He says that he has talent, when he clearly just cheats or commits copyright infringement by having someone to do the work for him (mostly Max and/or Mike) and claiming it as his own for the most part.
      • He claims to know what his father does as lawyer; just suing people, when its clearly more than that.
    16. Misleading name: His first name (Louie), means famous warrior; usually one that is good at combat, while his other name (Farley); means great courage. He isn’t either of these things since his plans are always dumb, easily backfiring on him. While on the other hand, he’s a wimpy coward for being immature, as stated previously above.
    17. Speaking of misguidance, his self-portrait artwork in "Three Burps and You're Out!" shown here, does not match up to the elements mentioned in few of the pages following this.
      • His self-portrait is clearly obvious, yet George, Alex, Julianna, Sage, Max and Mike cannot clearly make it out, due to how "complex" it is.
      • He states that there is a banana in the portrait, when it isn't present.
      • In conclusion, his portrait just looks similar to his original design, but with only a tuxedo similar to one of his outfits shown in "Lice Check" and without any of the "unique" elements that the painting tries to mention in the later pages.
    18. He is also inconsistent, as he somehow is a talented singer in "Trouble Magnet", but sounds awful in "Revenge of the Killer Worms". This is due to Sam helping him in the former book, while he (Louie) completely ignored it and does sing without his guidance in the latter.
    19. His overall appearance and even character, looks pretty similar to Rude Ralph from Horrid Henry.
      • His hair leans closely to his forehead just like Ralph in comparison, just like how George Brown looks a bit like Horrid Henry in terms of their hair design as well.
      • Both characters tend to be rude to the protagonist, but unlike Ralph; he doesn’t set aside his differences to team up with George on anything entirely as frenemies to get something they both want in life from one book onward after it had happened in “Trouble Magnet”, when it could’ve.
    20. He is a pretty static character, as he is incompetent, never learns his lesson, and has little to no character development to change himself for most of the books.
    21. Also, he is a Gary Stu, as there are a few instances where nothing bad happens to him, such as getting reprimanded by his parents for his bad actions. As they either don't mind his behavior or just spoil him for the most part, which increases the reader’s hatred towards him, as well as his parents. In fact, he considers himself one, which the reason for his dumb logic and unlawful behavior.
    22. He always thinks that he can control his parents and others to get his way, as well as getting away with his actions. However, it has been proven several times that he can't, but still does it anyway despite the countless consequences that are thrown at him constantly when he does it.
    23. Though he does get deserving comeuppance for most of his actions in the books, he is never sent to juvenile detention; as he has done several crimes, but is never properly apprehended for what he did.
    24. He is pretty overused in the series, as there isn't one or more books in which he doesn't appear in. Though this is due to the fact that he is the main antagonist, there are a few books where it feels reasonable in some instances to not include him, as he committed crimes in some of the books and has had well-deserved consequences for his actions to warrant that.
    25. The most baffling part of all, is the mixed-bag of him being a sympathetic and ruthless person. This doesn't help as the readers can't feel bad for him due to his horrible nature being shoved at their faces more than actual elements where you can feel bad for him, especially towards George, while Nancy (the author) tries to make you feel bad for him as shown in “Trouble Magnet”.
    26. Speaking of the author, she utterly despises him as she states in “Trouble Magnet”; “Louie was unbelievable”, which just foreshadows how much of a nuisance he would be in the later books.
      • One would think that Nancy could just write him off, but she can’t as she already established him as a main character at the beginning of the series.
    27. Due to these qualities, he is treated like a Butt-Monkey, and you can't feel bad for him as it is deserving, coming from the high amount of egregious traits he has. This also makes his role as a villain extremely laughable, as he just continues being a stubborn crybaby, similar to Lord Betrayus.
      • One time, George tells a joke about his (Louie) remote in “World’s Worst Wedgie”, when he (George) says that his (Louie) remote is sending signals to his (George’s) tooth, making him spin. This results in Louie getting mad, as his bragging and spotlight hogging is drowned out by George’s joke and the laughter within it.
        • Speaking of drowning out, George bursted his big burp while the loudspeakers of the water park chanted Louie’s name in “Wet and Wild”, foreshadowing his defeat later on.
      • Another notable example of this would be in “Wet and Wild” as well, as on his birthday; one of his birthday posters would be vandalized without him knowing. This foreshadows one of his defeats as well.
      • He gets kissed by George in "How Do You Pee in Space?", when they both visited the Beaver Brook Planetarium with their class. This is arguably the worst (though still deserving) offender of the bunch.
      • When Max and Mike fought over the suitcase that one of them must carry to the egotistical Farley, they end up accidentally opening his suitcase to reveal his red footie pajamas. To this, George laughs at him in front of the public, much to Louie's embarrassment in "Snot Funny!".
      • During a lunch break in "Dribble, Dribble, Drool!", he gets snitched by Alex for hitting him by accident when skating backwards. Despite trying to get out of it with his dumb reasoning as mentioned before, he still gets punished, much to the delight of George. Ridiculous yes, but doesn't earn sympathy in the slightest.
      • His gym bag gets ripped by Max and Mike, when they fought over on who should carry it in said book.
      • His mother calls him; “Loo Loo Poo”, which is again ironic to the gross context that the series shows, and is admittingly hilarious.
      • Along with the cringe, cyberbullying and his foreshadowing defeats, his “Life with Louie” segments also serve the purpose of being a comedy machine of Louie gaining unintentional suffering from the mistakes of his duo of “friends”; Max and Mike.
        • When he "shows off" his exercises in "How Do You Pee in Space?", his cameraman; Mike, misses his bending stretches, only showing Sam's trophy shelf as well as circling Louie to zoom in closer to a part of his exposed bum, and gets a portion of blank footage after he (Mike) trips over an object, getting Louie to take the camera's hit on the head while doing push-ups.
        • Before his act of actual copyright infringement, he gets a close up of his foot by Max in "Revenge of the Killer Worms".
        • The most laughable part out of all of this, is the fact that he doesn't check his videos before posting them to the internet, making him a huge laughing stock for the whole world to see, and to think that he was "smart".
    28. Basically, he is a pointless, scrappy, filler plot-device, as he is just in the story all for being the main obstacle that always causes conflict for George (and others to some extent) when he clearly can just be removed entirely.
      • The main antagonists of George’s life in the series could easily be the thoughts and speculation of others and most importantly his big burp, which is the main cause of his clown-like actions and the criticism others have of his behavior. So if you removed Louie entirely from the franchise, it wouldn’t make much of a difference at all.
    29. As of this point, no new book for the franchise has ever been made after 2017, so it's unclear if the series has ended or if Nancy is planning to make more books as well as giving Louie a character arc.
    30. Overall, he is an embarrassment to his family and the worst character of the franchise, due to his bad actions and of course; poor writing (as stated in WHIFfG#1).

    Rich Qualities

    1. He at least has a good imagination sometimes, despite thinking of sadistic things that he would like to see on George Brown.
      • In “Trouble Magnet”, he pretends to play an electric guitar while Mrs. Kelly does hula dances, which is pretty fun when put to good use in real life.
      • Despite the lyrics of his song being dumb and not shown that much in “Trouble Magnet”, his creativity of the tune isn’t bad by any means, as his band members; George and Mike, and even the audience at the talent show enjoyed it.
    2. Though rarely, he does sometimes act nice to George, though it isn't saying much as he still bullies him.
      • He does laugh at George’s unintentional interpretation of the snake when George tries to prevent the super burp from committing more chaos in “Trouble Magnet”.
      • In that book, he allowed him to come to his house and try out the talent he (George) has, and after George gave his best; he allowed him to be in his band, even as far as to let him change the name he (Louie) wanted; from “Louie and the Lice”, to “The Runny Noses”.
        • Despite this however, Louie still broke his partnership with George at the end.
      • While they were playing against the Kangaroos in their baseball game in "Three Burps and You're Out!", he didn't complain or blame George when he (George) inadvertently helped him to reach a base after he hit the ball at bat, despite doing the opposite earlier.
    3. He does respect his family sometimes, mostly his big brother; Sam.
      • He did let Sam fix the song that he and his band made in “Trouble Magnet”.
      • In “Wet and Wild”, he at least invited George to his birthday party since his mother requested it to him, despite being hesitant about it.
      • Bragging aside, sometimes he uses it to show how interesting his family is.
        • He says that his family went on a safari in Africa where they saw tigers, most notably a white one, as mentioned in “World’s Worst Wedgie”.
      • Though it was for the sake of being the "future", he didn't disagree with his family's idea to give free ice cream in his father's parlor in "Return to the Scene of the Burp" one time.
    4. Speaking of his family, his parents are likely to blame for his behavior (as stated in WHIFfG#21), since they spoil him, most notably his mother; who breaks the rules herself.
    5. Though rarely, he doesn't complain when things don't go his way.
      • During one of the practice days for the Sea Monkeys’ baseball game in “Three Burps and You’re Out”, he just took the advice from Coach Trainer and just practiced along with the team without a fuss for the most part.
    6. There were times where he did have valid points.
      • He was right about how gross it is when you put your fingers in your mouth in “Trouble Magnet”, as it is unnecessary to do, even when you are preventing yourself from burping.
      • You can’t blame him for looking mad at Max and Mike in “World’s Worst Wedgie” when they laugh at George unintentionally faking his death. As it is pretty heartless for someone to laugh at that if it ever happened in real life.
      • Nasty look aside, he did have a point to tell Alex not to bring ABC gum to the pool in “Wet and Wild”.
        • If Alex were to leave his gum somewhere around the pool’s parameters, he or somebody else might accidentally put it in the pool, which would not only result in ruining the party, but also intoxicating the pool due to the toxic bacterial liquid, choking hazards for the younger inhabitants and eventually closing the water park entirely. So Louie made a good call there.
      • He does give some excitement to the others about how interesting the Pirate Island Water Park is.
      • He did bring up the fact that Julianna focuses more on winning than having fun in "Three Burps and You're Out", as baseball games are meant to be enjoyable, rather than a competitive sport.
      • Despite intentionally steering attention away from Alex in "Lice Check", when Max misspelled mathematician with mathemachicken, Louie corrected his pronunciation.
      • In "Revenge of the Killer Worms", while he probably had condescending intentions when he said it, he isn't wrong about George not being born in Beaver Brook, as he (George) was born somewhere else.
      • When Sage complained about her lack of sprinkles on her flying float ice cream in "Return to the Scene of the Burp"; he rightfully reprimanded her for complaining about the free ice cream she got, as his family was being generous to them in his father's parlor.
    7. There are a few times where he does work hard.
      • He did work hard for the talent show by practicing George’s song for his band in “Trouble Magnet”.
        • Also, his slacking is a bit excusable when he lets his brother Sam fix the song, as he (Louie) doesn’t have a lot of experience with music.
      • At the very least, he tried to be creative when advertising for his father's ice cream parlor; "Farley's Flying Floats", as it can be funny (depending on your view).
      • Foul play aside, him wanting to exercise is a good thing, it just doesn’t work due to the writing.
        • Not only that, but he did explain the rules to Coach Trainer as shown in “Attack of the Tighty Whities”.
        • Besides the obvious poor writing on his inclusion in "How Do You Pee in Space?" and evil intentions, he wasn't wrong in training for an athletic competition, as practice is always necessary to be prepared for those types of contests.
        • While off-book for the most part, he did practice for his basketball team's game in "Dribble, Dribble, Drool!".
        • Though not mentioned that much, he did work hard for the Sea Monkeys baseball team in "Three Burps and You're Out".
    8. Despite the infamously atrocious aftermath of the tubing event in "Snot Funny!", he didn't cheat when he participated in the event, though he still acted like a sore loser in the end.
      • He also played fair during the basketball game against George in "Dribble, Dribble, Drool!", despite not taking it lightly once the actual results were unraveled.
    9. He did learn his lesson on not reading someone’s private, personal stuff in “Revenge of the Killer Worms”, though it isn't saying much.
    10. Admittingly, he is a good singer as somewhat shown in “Trouble Magnet”.
    11. All he wants to be in life, is to be known for being good and memorable for his family, just like his older brother Sam Farley (someone he looks up to), who had won many trophies due to his own talents and is a good person at heart, or the best representation of the Farley family in general.
      • With this goal in mind, it does make him look a bit relatable and earns him a few sympathy points, which makes it pretty unfortunate that he still acts rotten due to the writing of his character, when he could’ve had a well-written character arc.
    12. He isn't an Unwilling Weed Reaper, as he is always punished for his bad actions most of the time in the books.
      • In “Trouble Magnet”, he gets embarrassed by George Brown’s unintentional antics of silliness during the talent show. These include…
        • Removing his socks on stage and using his bare feet to play “Aunt Rhody” on the keyboard.
        • And dive-bombing straight onto Mrs. McKeon; the school principal to attract the liking of Sam and a few of the other older students. Thus rocking out Louie in the talent show, even though they didn’t win any trophies.
      • George also outshines Louie again in “World’s Worst Wedgie” by spinning on his skateboard unintentionally to prevent his Big Burp from coming out and to ignore Louie’s pride.
      • He did get reprimanded by the lady at the Pirate Island Water Park when he gave a bad reason to get a lifetime free pass in “Wet and Wild”.
      • Tantrum aside, he did get laughed at by a crowd of people for being a dimwit when he can’t get what he wants at the water park.
      • When he tried to brag how good he was sliding backwards in “Attack of the Tighty Whities!”, he failed by falling on his bottom and getting laughed at by George, Alex, Max and Mike.
      • Near the end of stated book, he did get an appropriate look from Sam when he was gonna pull off a horrid antic in front of him and their parents.
      • Julianna did call him out and reprimanded him for mocking George during baseball practice in “Three Burps and You’re Out!”.
      • Though not intentional, George was able to get on the JumboTron during the Beaver's baseball game during his big burp phase, leading Louie to be superjealous as a result, since he couldn't get on it during the evening.
      • He is called Loo Loo Poo by George during one of the baseball practice days, after he (Louie) teases him for being called Georgie by Sage, as well as being called out by Coach Trainer to "Cool it".
      • He did have an accident with Sage during the Sea Monkeys baseball game, again showing how isn't better than her in any way.
      • Not long after his hypocritical belief, he gets touched by George when he (George) portrayed his unintentional clown antics by tickling him in "Lice Check", pretending to represent lice. This would also foreshadow his defeat later on in the book.
      • For ignoring Alex's advice on his dumb lice prevention strategy during one lunch break; he turns beet red, yells in pain, and runs away away from the lunchroom, much to George's delight.
      • Not only does he lose the opportunity to be a hair model for Mr. Stubbs, but he also loses all the kids from his father's booth, gets deloused off-book after being sent home with his father to take a day off school much to George's delight, and is laughed at by Alex thanks to George's comment on his sweaty feet, all during career day. This gives good punishment for his cheating, committing other various crimes and acting like a smart aleck in said book.
      • He was asked to come down from the school's flagpole, got reprimanded and dragged on by Principal McKeon for a firm chat off-book, leaving George and Alex to go scot-free from climbing a tree in "How Do You Pee in Space?".
        • This is one of the few times where the trope is actually used very well in the series, as George and Alex are a well-written duo of a protagonist and deuteragonist who both admit to their actions and actually learn lessons in every book respectively, while Louie acts like an annoying jerk who almost never learns his lesson and doesn't take accountability for his actions. Let's not forget that he does get away with a few of his bad actions without any repercussions whatsoever, so it makes sense why he must be punished, while George and Alex don't due to how illegal climbing a school flagpole is to climbing a tree.
    13. Despite looking a bit like Rude Ralph, his design is cute and appealing to children, similar to most of the other characters.
      • In fact, his design is very consistent throughout the series.
    14. He was clearly meant to be hated in the first place, so the hatred towards him is justified, though he could've had a redemption arc.
    15. “I see England, I see France, I see George’s underpants.” - Attack of the Tighty Whities!
