PHB’s Picks: Poptropica Month 2021 ๐ŸŽฅโญ๏ธ

Hey Poptropicans! This September has been a birthday blast with cake costumes, Hoptropica and its 8-bit followers, TikToks, fan art, and of course, fan videos for the fan-run Poptropica Month on YouTube.

As we wrap up the month, we’re taking a dive into some of our favorite clips from the 2021 playlist. Sit back, pop the corn, and enjoy! ๐Ÿฟ๐ŸŽฌ

Our first feature comes from our Pop Month hosts, the Dimension Bros. As an analogy for the state of Poptropica in 2021, this 3-minute skit tells the story of a hungry diner customer waiting for his Old Island order, only to be fed excuses instead of dinner. ๐Ÿฝ The whole act is performed solo by Isaac, and the tale is highly resonant. Props! ๐Ÿ‘

The next feature comes from the other half of the Dimension Bros โ€” in this one, Theo sits down with his mother and has her guess the names of various Poptropica characters. She’s pretty inventive โ€” doesn’t “Teresa Moonbeam” sound just like a classic Poptropica moniker? ๐Ÿ˜œ๐ŸŒ™

Invisible Ring appears to be the biggest participant of the Pop Month playlist, with many of her videos being ones we’ve shared for her dream island, Megatropolis. But among her other videos is a mini movie filmed in-game in the style of Perfect Sky, a Pop pirate adventure just in time for Talk Like a Pirate Day. So many islands to explore! ๐Ÿดโ€โ˜ ๏ธ

A different take on Poptropica explorers, this epic cinematic trailer from LostLucas dramatizes his Popsona, Lone Clown, by juxtaposing shots of gameplay with sensational narration about this never-smiling character. Critics are wary โ€” but we’re intrigued. ๐Ÿค”

Speaking of cinematic, have you ever imagined adapting Poptropica islands into movies? CatfishFour does just that in this vlog, conjuring up ideas for potential audio, lighting, plot, genre, character development, and other considerations for the big screen. Picture Escape From Pelican Rock as a comedic, artistic Wes Anderson film โ€” what a concept! ๐Ÿ‘ฎ๐ŸŽฌ


That wraps up the PHB’s picks for Poptropica Month 2021! You can find more in the Pop Month playlist, but keep in mind that some of its content is for ages 13+. For more kid-friendly choices, the Pop Creators’ Blog also featured a few fan vids this month.

We hope you enjoyed the clips above and all the other festivities for Poptropica’s 14th birthday this month! It’s amazing how creative the Pop community can be. Keep on popping on! ๐Ÿฅณ

  1. Wow, really cool how you put together like a gallery of videos!
    Hard to believe Poptropica’s birthday month is almost over. I’ll admit, i’m rather disappointed. We got two free birthday items, (three if you count both of the Hoptropica followers) one rereleased mini-game that wasn’t really as old as I was hoping, and that’s it. It sounded like the creators were going big this year, but alas, perhaps not. However, September’s not over yet! There’s still a slim chance of birthday celebration!

  2. Well, Poptropica has showcased some pop month videos on the blog. I think that counts for something! (Or maybe i am just saying that ’cause one of those showcased videos were mine…๐Ÿ˜€)

What's popping, Poptropicans?
