The central connection to all of the series is the fact it’s set in the small town of Arcadia Oaks that seems to be the epicenter of weird stuff going on.

The viewing order of Tales of Arcadia on Netflix is exactly as the series released on Netflix over the years. Netflix themselves do not list the series correctly when you search for Tales of Arcadia.
