Hey Poptropicans! We’re not goofing around with this announcement — we’ve got sneak peeks for the next Poptropica island!
Poptropica’s been busy lately with side quests and other specials, but they haven’t forgotten about making islands. The latest one in the works is Goofball Island, which was announced as a winner of the 2020 Dream Island contest. Take a look at their wavy wonders!
As we see in this first ever sneak peek, the “land of Goof” is lined with curving everything, from trees to lampposts — and even slanted fish on the Crazy Club? We’re not sure what this grinning building is all about, but we get another look at it through this sketch (sans “Toof”-paste):
Are the dancing creatures and poofy trees giving anyone else Dr. Seuss storybook vibes? In any case, that silly energy fits in here, as the plot is all about an unusually cheery town that’s about to have all its color wiped out by mad scientist Dr. Blandston.
Back to that first picture, we find some curious things of note, like the fact that our boy Ned Noodlehead from Super Power Island is hanging out by the Crazy Club, likely just as a stand-in for scale. We also see a building for Boskos Car Fixing and Embroidery, which seems a strange combo. And wacky faces are everywhere, from the clouds to the gate gnomes and birds (real and inflatable). 🤓🤪
Besides the announcement of this winning island idea back in January, this is the first time we’re hearing about Goofball Island, and it seems to be shaping up to be quite the adventure! Stay tuned for the latest news on this upcoming island, and let’s hope they (don’t) goof it up!
Poptropica’s Instagram story has been busy too, with last calls to enjoy Hoptropica birthday goodies and a slew of fan art, including a couple of drawing process videos. Hippity hop before they drop!
That’s it for this update! How hyped are you for Goofball Island? Have you made the most of Hoptropica’s birthday visit? Share with us in the comments, and keep on popping on, Poptropicans! ✌️

Definitely not feeling the vibe of this island AT ALL. Seems t oo childish, and not in a good way because nostalgia and kidcore can be fun, but this is like Dr. Seuss on acid. Nothing really original here either, plot wise as well. And it will probably be a lot of cutscenes.
Hmmm…. Interesting storyline.
I hope Goofball island is more fulfilling than Fairy Tale. Maybe they’re even doing the characters without the new animations?
The whole concept sounds fun in my opinion, but it’s not what I’m truly looking for. It’s seems the old islands have some sort of special magic I can’t place my hand on (because Poptropicans don’t have fingers) that the newer islands don’t hold. Like Tiny Bean said, it does sound rather unoriginal and kind of childish in my opinion, too. I don’t know what it is, but the old islands have something that can never be recreated.
Nevertheless, looking forward to this island! My hopes aren’t too high, as I don’t wish to be disappointed again like I was on Fairy Tale, but there’s still a chance.
