Famous Poptropicans and Couches 🛋️

Hey Poptropicans — pop in for the latest on social media, the only part of the Pop franchise that gets much updating these days! 🪐

Enjoy the latest fan art features from Pop’s Instagram stories, including running from spiders in krazytalez‘s Early Poptropica Island comic — and if you haven’t seen the previous parts, catch them on the artist’s IG page.

Meanwhile on Twitter, Pop Creator Jon Pitcher continues to share throwbacks from his career with the game, from the early days with Spy Island to a showcase of famous Poptropicans, including a not-so-subtle relabeling for Shark Boy/Guy, which is a whole story in itself. 🦈

All these nostalgic tweets coupled with Poptropica’s inactivity with the game and Creators’ Blog has some players wondering if the end is near for Pop. It’s only speculation, but it doesn’t help that Poptropica ignores the call-outs from fans across social media — even ours!

But while they may act as couch potatoes in that respect, they’re still busy pumping out memes and reacting to fan content on social media.

Poptropica reacts to the New York City blue couch meme.

Anyway, we’re sharing Pop-related social media posts from Jon Pitcher, Official Poptropica, and more on our Discord server, the PHC, so join us there for more updates! 🥳

Fanfic: The Adventures of Anna Gram 🕵️‍♀️ Prologue

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Silver Sword. Enjoy!

Hey Poptropicans! Before I start this new story, I just want to share with you that this fanfic idea is inspired by a comment from Magic Kid on another post of mine, The Story of White Cloud, Part 2. Now let’s begin.

It was a dark, starry night on Goofball Island. The stars didn’t light up anything in Dullsville, though, because it was so dull. Anna Gram had just become a detective, and she browsed the street for a mystery. She became hungry and hurried over to the Dusty Crust Bakery.

ANNA: “Hello! Seen any mystery?!”

Anna had just moved to Dullsville, but she had lived in Goofside for a while. So whenever she talked, she was super cheerful.

BAKER: “All I’ve seen is bread. Want some?”

ANNA: “Why are you so dull?”

BAKER: “Why are you so goofy?”

ANNA: “Because I’ve been living in Goofside!”

BAKER: “And I’ve been living in Dullsville. Now, would you like some bread or not?”

ANNA: “Yes!”

The baker handed Anna some bread.

BAKER: “Don’t pay. Money is colourful.”

Anna took a bite of the bread, or she would have, if she could bite it.

ANNA: “First mystery: find out why this bread is the opposite of normal!”

To be continued…

One of my brothers, reading over my shoulder: How can this episode be about a shady character, a blimp, AND something pleasant? Who’s the shady person? What’s the surprise?

A Zomberry Series

Episode Four: The Message

Witty Toothpick and Jazzy Hawk’s hands are an inch apart.

Toothpick is frightened out of his wits. The zombies below him reach up to grab him again. Hawk reaches as far as he can, hand outstretched. 

It’s a frightening moment where anything could happen — Hawk might reach farther and possibly save Toothpick right then.

Toothpick falls down another inch in a millisecond, and Hawk reaches further out, the events seeming to happen in very slow motion. 

And then…

Fanfic: Story of Smart Lightning, Part 2/6 ⚡️

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Young Rider. Enjoy!

Hey everybody! It’s me, Young Rider, back with part two of Smart Lightning’s story. Sorry to keep you waiting — the next one should be here in the upcoming weeks. In case you missed it, here’s part one.

(Continued from Part 1…)

Smart Lightning’s disappearance has had no effect on New Tropican, and nobody has noticed the flash. 

Meanwhile, Smart Lightning panics as she reappears in a tree, near a golden fruit. 

“Hello?” she calls out, taking in her situation.

Another flash appears above her, making her jump.

A loud voice booms out, “Why have you summoned The Flashing?!”

“Who are you?” Smart Lightning responds.

“I am the controller of The Flashing! The wielder of storms! I AM ZEUS!” Zeus shouts, causing Smart Lightning to step back.

Zeus appears above her, along with three cloaked figures. He whispers what sounds like nonsense.

But the cloaked figures step forward, making Smart Lightning take yet another step back. The figures corner her, and she suddenly begins to glow. She does not realize the change, and starts to maneuver around her enemies. It is not until she starts to run that she sees her glowing legs. She stops and stares in shock. 

“Now you see, now you will pay!” Zeus takes the advantage, rushing forward along with the figures.

Smart Lightning seems to be paralyzed with shock, and it is not until she is handcuffed with bonds of light that she regains her senses. She is trapped, and reality sets in as her captors grab her. She stops struggling and lets her captors carry her away…

Meanwhile, Brave Star paces her room with a worried expression on her face. She decides to head out to look for Smart Lightning, bringing an umbrella with her. She asks the people she meets on the way if they have seen her, but nobody has.

She starts to head home, but scorched marks on the path make her pause. They form words: “The friend you seek has left your world, moved on to the land of the rulers.”

Brave Star gasps, remembering her medallion collection. She heads off to a rusty shed, uncovering a worn, yellow blimp…
