Dr. Hare today, Carotenoid gone tomorrow

Hey Poptropicans! Slanted Fish here with news of massive updates to Poptropica Worlds. Quite possibly the biggest load we’ve had in all of Worlds’ half-year of existence!

First up: the long-awaited winning costume designs from the #MyPoptropicaCostume contest have made their way into Worlds! Well, the grand prize winners, anyway: the “Ocean Princess” by Creepy Peanut (with matching Merman designed by the Creators), and the “Hip Hop Boy” by Speedy Toes (with matching girl design by the Creators). (Let’s hope the runner-ups eventually get their designs in the store, too.)

You can check out these new costumes in the store on Poptropica Worlds, along with several other new costumes: a fashionable girl with snazzy flower pants, another with a flower crown (members only), a tough-looking dude with a gun and Nintendo Power Glove (members only), a cowboy and cowgirl, and Carotenoid from Dr. Hare’s Revenge.

It’s good to see that most of these are available to everyone. Even the members-only costumes have a part or two available to all. Enjoy the new costumes!


Speaking of making things available to everyone, check your Poptropica Original map: Legendary Swords, which returned from a long hiatus last week but for members only, is now back for everyone! Go kick some bots and earn that sweet new “LS” medallion!

So, while it’s super awesome of the Creators to make some of this stuff available to everyone, here’s a hard truth: some of the good things in life aren’t free. Like this massive Dr. Hare-themed update to the player homes on Worlds, which, guess what: is almost entirely for members only! Leave it to the pink villain to spoil our spirits, huh?

But hey, we still like to look at what’s new, so let’s check out the Hare-splosion that’s taken over every tab of the home decor selections, plus the new house expansion:

Wow, that is a ton of new items:

  • bright yellow Dr. Hare wallpaper (for everyone!)
  • space station walls (default in the new house expansion)
  • a Rabbot statue
  • carrot-like vintage-style wall telephone with mini Dr. Hare holding it up
  • inflatable Dr. Hare boxing punching bag
  • green saucer light from H.A.R.E. (Dr. Hare’s space station)
  • fridge with Hare’s drone ears
  • carrot bed
  • carrot throne
  • pink chair from H.A.R.E.
  • “Respect the Carrot” sign (for everyone!)
  • crate of carrots (for everyone!)
  • floating table with carrots of various colors (for everyone!)
  • table with a big sliced carrot (for everyone!)
  • framed picture of drone ears
  • another of a carrot
  • window with dystopian 24 Carrot Island backdrop
  • window with space view
  • “Beware the Hare” poster
  • Dr. Hare autographed poster (note: it’s super small!)
  • and finally, the Dr. Hare key for the house expansion.

Whew, that was a lot. Here’s what everything looks like, including the new room (oh, and I threw in the trophy from Dr. Hare’s Revenge—which we’ll get to in just a bit):

There’s also something new on the Poptropica Worlds map (no, it’s not a new island): a green “Start Here” label was added to 24 Carrot Island, so I suppose that’s the recommended place to start if you’re new to Worlds.

Neat, but let’s hope we see some more full-fledged islands populate this map in the upcoming year!


One last thing: Dr. Hare finally showed up to his own game, Dr. Hare’s Revenge! And it only took him two months since the mini-game’s release. Regardless, he’s here—or at least, he will be once you finish all four zones of the game. If you’ve already beat the game but haven’t seen him, you can see him right away next time you hop on over.

When he shows up on the scene, he’ll fire his fancy new carrot-powered ray gun at Carotenoid for being useless, and Carotenoid will fall to pieces. RIP.

Then he’ll turn his target to you… except, of course, you’ve snagged all his carrots (never mind the many boxes that remain all over the place). Still, he’ll trick you into looking away, and he’ll be gone before you know it. Oh, and you’ll get 500 coins again—I suppose that’s a good deal!

(Why yes, I did snag myself a new jacket from one of the hip-hoppers in the store earlier. Reppin’ Poptropica in Poptropica… makes sense, right?)

Also: if you’ve yet to beat the game, we’ve got a Dr. Hare’s Revenge Guide right here!


Well, that concludes this super-big update! What did you like or wish was different? Share your thoughts in the comments below. ✌️

Keep troppin’ and don’t be trippin’,

        The reference itself is pretty basic. Just something the protagonist yells so that the person he’s yelling to gets distracted so that he can do whatever. ITs also subverted when there’s an actual three headed monkey behind someone, but when he says it they don’t bother to look behind thinking it’s just a ruse. You should really play Monkey Island Fishy :p

      • Slanted Fish says:

        Ah, I was more wondering what the thing being referenced was, because I didn’t know of any three-headed rabbits. Turns out it was a monkey. 🙈 I’ll keep the game in mind! 😛

    Nice to be back on poptropica. It’s been a while. Honestly, I thought the house expansion was going to be christmas themed. Oh well. I like the Dr Hare expansion. I really hope we can get one more island on poptropica before the new year.

    “I love the Power Glove, it’s so bad.”
    – a wise man once said…

    Regardless of beimg for members, the rest of the outfits look cool, especially the rabbot.

    And it’s pretty awesome to see the Poptropica costume contest winners to come up. (Although I am kinda more into the runner ups, but these are cool too) 🙂

    Even if that rabbot ship (house item) is for members or not… I was kind of hoping it would be life sized… Heh

    I was going to replay Crisis Caverns a few times so I could get some more credits to buy some of those, but the elk antlers weren’t in the cave, and 24 Carrot Crashed when I tried doing that as an alternative. 😥

  4. Super Grape says:

    Something tells me that Dr. Hare is going to be coming back again, and I think it’s safe to assume that he’s not going to be leaving Poptropica anytime soon, after all, based upon what I see here, I think that the creators love Dr. Hare just as much as we do.

What's popping, Poptropicans?
