Every character in the series has been named after some sort of food, or something that is associated with food. This holds true for all of the main characters, as well as most of the minor characters in every single episode. There are also other important things within the show that have been named in the same manner, such as the name of the city, for example.
|The Sun & The Moon|
The sun and the moon typically play a small part in many episodes of Chowder, though they are usually designed after a central theme in each episode. For example, in “Grubble Gum”, the moon was in the shape of an expanding grubble gum bubble, while in “The Thrice Cream Man”, the sun was in the shape of a melting thrice cream cone. While this isn’t the case in every episode, it is a running theme throughout the series.
Marzipan City was loosely based on New York City; C. H. Greenblatt was fascinated by the nature of New York City, with how it never seemed to end and how it’s full of strange and interesting people, so he tried to capture its essence in Marzipan City.
