ARLEN IS FOR LOVERS

Loosely based off suburbs outside of Dallas, Texas -- Arlen is a small sleepy town that's home to some of the coolest characters around.

There’s a reason we’re still talking about this show, thanks to a few totally rad streaming services that allow fans to get lost in Arlen and binge episodes from sun-up to sun-down. 

Where the Heck Is Arlen?

Sorry friends, we don't mean to be the bearer of bad news, but much like Springfield, the colorful town of Arlendoes not actually exist.Nor do the handful of characters that live there. Total heartbreak, right? We can't be the only ones who hoped to one day crack open a can ofAlamo beer in the alleyway or take home some souvenir propane. 

That said, the small town's name is reminiscent ofGarland, a suburb of Dallas where Mike Judge (one of the show's brilliant creators) once called home.

Judge says the town really took inspiration fromRichardson, a different suburb found in Dallas. Why Richardson, you ask? Well, for starters, many of the streets feature alleyways right behind the residential houses -- pretty perfect for standing around with the neighbors and throwing back beers, don't ya think? Not to mention - the iconic featuring of theHeights Park Rocket

OK -- But Strickland Propane Is Real, Right?

Unfortunately, the propane and propane accessories company with the "Taste the meat, not the heat" slogan is just about as real as the town of Arlen. But don't be blue -- flip that frown upside down and show your love by rocking a killerStrickland Propane Hoodie from Famous In Real Life instead!

Prefer a comfy-cozy t-shirt over ahoodie? Or perhaps a breezy tank to show off your killer shoulders? Don't worry; we've got those too. We even have a classy StricklandPropane & Propane Accessories Mug so you can sip your favorite brew with Arlen in mind.
