Congratulations to all the winners and nominees of the 2022 Poppies! The spotlights are well deserved. 🥳🌟
This year, the Poppies had a special visitor on our Discord server: Official Poptropica! At least, it seems to be — our hunch is that it’s legit. Appearing after the show for only a few minutes, the new account dropped by with just one short and sweet message of thanks plus some hype for “more Discord appearances.” Will we get to interact with the current social media manager like in the days of Skinny Moon? Maybe we’ll find out soon. In any case, it’s an honor to have Pop stop by! 🤩

Thanks to all of you who participated in the Poppies and made this all possible! 🥳 Hope you enjoy the recap and take the time to check out all the amazing content covered, from blog posts to fan videos and more! 💙
The party was so much fun, except my friend page takes a lot longer to load than it used to.
Anyway, congratulations to the winners and happy (early) birthday to the PHB!
Great to have you and your friends at the party! 🥳
Congratulations to the winners! Hope you all enjoyed the presentation and video (fun fact: some of those memories I highlighted because they were sources of my inspiration for some of the posts that I made). I have a few more posts in my pocket that I saved especially for the upcoming month. See you all soon, Happy Birthday PHB!
Thanks for the memories, Smart Icicle! Looking forward to your next posts! 🌸
Congratulations to all the winners! I held a small afterparty at my clubhouse which was awesome as well! Will still be listening to Backspace until the end of time 😉
🎵 Got a long list of ex-islands… 🎶
🎵Don’t throw them down the drain…🎵
🎶 But you hit that backspace, Adobe, and that move was lame 🎶
🎵 Kids only want islands if there’s story 🎵
Don’t say we didn’t, say we didn’t warn ya
Kids only want islands if there’s challenge
For shame! I expected better of you, Pop fans! 😠
Jkjk congrats to all the winners! (except Balloon Boy, may he never be rescued)
I was shocked. Balloon boy was the runner the runner up for most overrated character last year.
heh heh… You know what, I actually came up with something for Balloon Boy on my dream island. It’s in the comic book section of my channel. My movie’s there too, of course. That Ultimate Movie Guest post of mine is just the way to look it all up if anyone wants to, with there being a channel button at the very end of my movie.
…And speaking of my movie, I’m really happy that both my movie AND my guest post with my movie in it got nominated. I guess my Ultimate Movie guest post is a 2-in-1, so technically, I got the runner-up in both guest post AND video. …Although I didn’t get first, I’m really happy with how things came out, with the runner-ups being featured alongside the winners on this post.
…That means I did it! I finally made it to the podium! Many thanks to all who voted for me. 🙂
no the runner up for best video was backspace
Congrats on the nominations and getting to be runner-up, Ring! 💍 Thanks for sharing your passion for Pop with us in multiple creative forms!
What movie? (Sorry if I sound annoying it makes me sound like an annoying question-asker in the department)
Battle Morale, it was Invisible Ring’s movie she made a while back, you can find it in this post as the Runner-up for best official Guest blog.
Oof, sorry about that, Maryann! 😅 I promise I voted for Mordred! 😉
Let me know what your hat tastes like 😜
I’m worried about her stomach, since hats are meant to be eaten.
Hats off to you, Balloon Boy fans! (And Mordred/Binary Bard fans too, it seems…)
Hi everyone!! Thank you so much for voting me as Best Official Guest Blog Post! I am so very happy. It’s my first time winning a poppie and even though I sadly couldn’t make it to the party, I hope it was fun. Also congrats to the other winners and the runner ups!
Congrats on the Poppie, Pink Crush! Missed celebrating with you, but here’s to more of your dazzling costumes! 💖
oof i was at work so i missed it ;-;
well, congrats to the winners tho
Missed you on the blue carpet, Pegs! Hope you enjoy the recap!
Haha everyone’s reaction to the Pop creators typing in the PHC was fun. All we needed to see was the name and soon enough, everyone’s like “WAIT A MINUTE-“.
Great Poppies event though! Had fun playing Starlink with fellow Poptropicans
All it takes is a little celebrity sighting to create a lot of chaos. 🤩 Great to have you at the party and glad you had fun! 🥳
i prefer taylor swift
Now we got bad blood…
Omg Bad Blood is my favorite Taylor Swift song!
Man I wish the Poptropica Creators can ask us questions just like Skinny Moon did.
I think we ask more than they do, even when Skinny Moon was there. 😜
