Show creator Sascha Paladino is responsible for the two towns getting into the show saying that they tried to inject parts of their everyday lives into the show. Paladino is a Wesleyan University graduate and said his train rides through the two towns are what inspired him to use them in his show.
The episode, titled “To the Goldilocks Zone”, is based on Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Miles fnds Planet Meriden too hot and Planet Wallingford too cold. Watch it below.
