Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' is touched by Bostonian influences, as the PBS station in Boston is responsible for the academic portion of production. A few episodes mention Boston Creme Pie, and the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry is parodied.

Added DiffLines:

* Thanks to opening narration and the titular character's Boston Bruins apparel, we can peg the setting of ''Film/HappyGilmore'' as Waterbury, Connecticut. It helps that the film deals heavily with both hockey and golf.

* New England is, together with neighboring [[UsefulNotes/NewYorkState upstate New York]], one of the [[WhereTheHellIsSpringfield most popular guesses]] as to the location of Riverdale, the [[EverytownAmerica all-American small town]] setting of ''Franchise/ArchieComics''. Bob Montana, the initial artist for ''Archie'', based the high school on the one he attended in Haverhill, Massachusetts, complete with a replica of Auguste Rodin's statue The Thinker.

The TV adaptation ''Series/{{Riverdale}}'' largely keeps to this, with the Blossom family's wealth shown to have been built on their maple syrup business (maple syrup being a big industry in northern New England).

(''ComicBook/ChillingAdventuresOfSabrina'', however, is [[DarkerAndEdgier a whole different story]].)
