Middleton is a fictional city that is the setting of the Disney Channel animated series Kim Possible. It is the hometown in which the main heroic characters live, work, and go to school. Almost every episode includes at least one scene somewhere in Middleton. Most of the frequently re-used locations are inside its borders.

It is referred to as one of three cities in the Tri-City. The other two being Upperton and Lowerton.

Most scenes of Middleton are those of a quiet, suburban town, although other scenes show it to also have an active urban area with a large population base, an extensive infrastructure, and considerable cultural amenities.

Location

The precise geographical location of Middleton is never explicitly stated, but the majority of the available canonical evidence points to it being in Colorado.

During Team Possible's second encounter with Senor Senior, Senior he displayed a multi-state map centered on Middleton. The middle of the map is in the general vicinity of the real world location of Denver, Colorado[1].

When Kim dons the speed shoes to fight the returned Bebes she ends up in San Francisco and notes that she was a thousand miles from Middleton. Which is almost exactly how far it is from San Francisco to Denver, Colorado[2].

When Kim and Ron accidentally left Rufus in Greece after a mission they state that their commercial flight took twelve hours[3]. Given that the typical transoceanic commercial aircraft travels at an average speed of about 500 to 550 miles per hour, then that means that Middleton is about 6000 to 6600 miles from Athens. Denver, Colorado is about 6200 miles from Athens, Greece.

Geological and meteorological clues, while inconclusive, seem to support the Colorado location. Middleton is shown to be near both arid, desert-like environs [citation needed]as well as greener hill country and snow-covered mountains. A variety of landscapes that are found in and near Colorado.

However, despite all of this canonical evidence pointing toward Middleton being located in Colorado somewhere near Denver there are a couple pieces of canonical evidence which refute or weaken Middleton being in Colorado.

When Kim and Ron took their ski trip to Mount Middleton a multi-state map showed Mount Middleton to be in or around West Virginia[4].

Also seemingly contradicting the Colorado location of Middleton is when Ron moves to Norway he states that he is nine hours ahead of Middleton[5]. At the time of the year that this took place, the start of the school year, Norway is nine hours ahead of the Pacific Time Zone not the Mountain Time Zone that most of Colorado is located within.

It is highly likely the ambiguity is intentional. Series director Steve Loter has stated that Middleton "is Anywhere USA. It's not based on a real place"[citation needed], which allows the city to portray a typical locale anywhere in the majority of the American states.
