I’ve been poking around a bit, connecting some dots, and here’s what I’ve come up with:
1. Gamer Guy’s real name is Abe.
Don’t believe me? Check inside the bakery on Ghost Story island. It’s a nice trivia, I thought.
2. Joe Puddy has visited Super Power Island.
This one is only logical. Zomberry Island has a lot of subways, right? In the subway on Super Power Island, under the stairs you will find “Joe was here” written on the walls.
3. You have never been here, but have tried to get here before, maybe when you were younger:
I’m not going to tell you where I am, but when you figure it out, you’re going to flip. Guess in the comments!
4. Betty Jetty is Ned Noodlehead’s sister.
This may be known by some, but not to others. It came from the Poptropica Nintendo game, which I will be posting a review about soon.
5. Dr. Hare was created by Shark Boy as an arch enemy to a carrot super hero.
Pretty kewl stuff.
6. Balloon Boy is actually based off of a real incident.
It’s true! Craziness is the world we live in. xD
7. There is a site for the Mews Foundation (from Cryptids Island).
This may not be a surprise to everyone, but there is a site made by Poptropica, pretty silly stuff.
8. Poptropica Toys are not listed on the Poptropica Shop!
I’m serious! None on the main homepage, even when you click View All.
Start buying these babies off of Ebay, peoples, before they disappear forever! They can, however, be found on the Poptropica Toys page.
9. Islands used to have a rating next to it on the map; it would say “hard”, “medium”, or “easy”.
It was a nice feature; I actually thought it was helpful… nothing else to say about it. 😛
10. Islands can be selected via the Tab and Enter key.
One instance of keyboard input that effects the game. I wonder what else can be done with the keys… ❓
That’s my Poptropica trivia! I hope you guys enjoyed it. If you’re interested in more, check out the PHB’s Trivia pages for every island under the Island Help page!

Kewl trivia.Also I knew most of it,and you are in the Great Wall of China in Time Tangled,right? I’ve been there before. Also the Joe from VHI could have been to Super Power,you know.
Yes, although I’m on the wall. Have you ever been on the wall? 😀
Yes, but it makes more sense to say Joe Puddy, as Zomberry Island is made up of subways, and the evidence is in a subway. 😛
You have been on the wall? No way!
Somewhere in Red Dragon Island. Oh, we can tell if its hard medium or way just by playing the islands XD. SISTER?! -gasp- DUN DUN DUN! I have a poptropica blimp toy, I didn’t know they stopped making toys! Lots of fun facts HP, nice job! Add me! -JessieKip
Time Tangled, Great Wall of China. 😛
I knew most of these, cool!
Have you… every been up there? I know I always tried as a little kid; never could.
I think I have, but I don’t remember that long ago. 😛
Hey, email me, I think I know the new creator’s real name!
Kewl trivia, HP! LOL, I didn’t know Betty Jetty is Ned Noodlehead’s sis! 😛 AND Harold Mews has a website in real life. 😯
Check out Mews’ site. Pretty weird stuff going on there… 😯
WHAT?! They stop selling Pop toys? NOOOO…. 😦
Now I have to buy one at eBay,,
From what I see, Pop toys are still around. The toys page definitely still works for me (poptropica.com/toys) – what makes you say otherwise?
Not sure about the Joe one either, since Super Power Island (and therefore, its subway graffiti) was around long before either Zomberry or Virus Hunter. Also, what do you mean by “Dr. Hare was created by Shark Boy as an arch enemy to a carrot super hero”? Where does this info come from?
Other than that, nice list. #10 reminds me of another keyboard trick – you can press “S” to skip dialogue when talking to non-player characters (though it doesn’t work on the “upgraded” islands like Virus Hunter). If this stuff interests you, there’s lots more in the PHB Trivia pages for all the islands, which can be found under our Island Help tab! 🙂
1# Huh. It’s not on the Poptropica Shop, but it looks like you’re right! Oops. 😛
2# Just a nice little and neat coincidence. I’d say that some inspiration for Zomberry was from Super Power.
3# Poptropica Official Guide 😀
4# I know, I’m so bummed about the keyboard trick “S”. I loved that shortcut!
5# Always enjoy the island trivias! 😀
The 10 things you didn’t know about Poptropica was still a great idea HP!
Can we talk on ur chat, It’s important.
U if u want, Fishy needs to come.
Ah, cool. Also, Sam, you can email me. I don’t always see your chat messages in time.
Reblogged this on Poptropica With Scary Plug and commented:
HP tells us about 10 things you didn’t know about Poptropica. Check it out, they’re fascinating. Bet you never knew some!
I remember when it had hard, medium or easy for the islands. I also remember when you use to get 100 credits for each island.
Those were the days…
There’s a website for Mews? Huh didn’t know that. What’s the site?
There’s a link in the post. 😀
Holy cow!!!!! I recognized where you were right away 😉 When I first played Time Tangled (It was one of my first islands, I started playing Poptropica right before Skullduggery was released) I thought I had to get up there with the wing things Leonardo da Vinci give you to complete the island… I literally sat there for ten minutes tryin’ to get up there!! Good job! (BTW sry I’m commenting on a post from, like, forever ago 😉 )
It’s k. 😛 Yup, this was the reaction I was looking for… XD
How in Poptropica did you get up there on Time Tangled? I wanna know!
lolz. another reaction that I was looking for. 😛
😉 Email me for the secret.
Hey HPuterpop I think it’s in red dragon island maybe?
Actually, it is from Time Tangled Island, in ancient China. 😛
Haha! It’s a year later, but I decided to replay Time Tangled Island and I got up there!
Awesome. I’m glad you guys still read my old posts. 😀
Dude… I FEED on old info. XD
Dude I TOTALLY know where you are in pic #3!!! On that building on Red Dragon Island!! How on Poptropica did you get up there though???
nope, time tangled.
No it’s Red Dragon I bet you a $1,000,000,000!!!!!
It’s Time Tangled. 😉
Dang! Now I’m broke….
give me the $1,000,000,000.
Okay! Here you go! *Hands hi a million doll hairs* *runs off*
*you leave foot prints* *i follow them*
One thing wrong: Dr. Hare is actually a scientist, Dr. Harvey Hare. He was experimenting on a bunny and something went awry and he became a bunny-person (I have the Ultimate Sticker Collection and 24 Carrot was on it, so I learned the story from there.)
Well you’re right – I meant that Poptropica developer Nate Greenwall created the character. 🙂
u in time tangled i’ve never gontan up there
