Big Nate Island, Comics, Reality TV Island, Sneak Peeks

More TV Stars!

Yes – finally, another sneak peek for Reality TV Island! Thank you Funny Penguin for the news. I guess you can throw away all those rumors about the Poptropica Creators abandoning that island now that we know they’re definitely working hard on it! This sneak peek shows 4 more contestants you may be competing against on the upcoming island, possibly a sequel to this old sneak peek. Here you go:

Blog Post Title: Tough Competition
Description: Here are a few more contestants you may be competing against on Reality TV island.

Let’s see… from left to right, here are my guesses on what these guys are. The first one looks like a hiking scout, the second seems to be a music fan, the third one appears to be a sweaty athlete, and the fourth… I don’t know, maybe a magician? 😛

The Creators have also posted a Big Nate comic, and it looks like somebody isn’t having so much success with ice skating. Thanks for the news, Tough Claw!

Lastly, there’s a new poll on the Creators’ Blog: Who is your favorite character from the Big Nate comics? Predictably, Nate is winning (might be because nobody knows anything about the other characters!). 😆

Anyway, that’s all the news for now! Remember to read up on all the other posts, too. Check out the links below to learn more about Reality TV Island, an island coming to Poptropica in the near future!

Another Big Nate Comic and Pink Panther 2 Mission!

Hello all; Smockers here! It’s been quite a long time since I have posted (my last post was on New Years Day, in fact)! I was very busy with school stuff, but enough about me. To start, we get a new comic from the PCB! Hopefully, Big Nate Island will be released soon. Anyways, comic below (go to the Poptopica Creators’ Blog to view it full size!):


Thanks to Shiny Leaf for the above and below news! What could be under this text? Why, a Pink Panther 2 mission, of course! That’s right; on Spy Island, you can find this building:


When you go inside, you will be present with a mission to find the stolen Pink Painter. You have an inventory at the bottom of the screen. You will receive and find items that will ultimately let you find out who the criminal is. I don’t want to spoil it for people who want to just solve it by themselves; click on the “m0re…” button below if you want to see a walk-through. 🙂 Continue reading “Another Big Nate Comic and Pink Panther 2 Mission!”

Big Nate Island, Sneak Peeks

Boy and Seagull

What do you get when you cross a seagull and a Poptropican boy? A Big Nate sneak peek! 😀

Thanks Grumpy Wolf for keeping us informed! The setting of this sneak peek looks very familiar to this other one. The picture of the school clock is back and this time it seems that it’s flying time for the birds! The time is different from the last sneak peek, too. Blog picture and information below:

Blog Post Title: Heads up!
Description: What time is it when a seagull flies over your head? Time to get a new hat! Bwaa ha ha! This is why I prefer bunnies to birds.
(If you’re wondering about the comment of bunnies preferred over birds, it’s because this was posted by Poptropica Creator Dr. Hare.)

“…You’re on a mission to find a long-lost time capsule which, if found, can save the school from demolition…”
(Part of the Big Nate Island description from

Time: The time capsule relates to time, and so does a clock because it tells time.
School: If the time capsule is found, the school is saved. Also, the sneak peek shows a school clock.

Maybe this clock is related to that time capsule that can save the school? After all, they’re both related to time and school… 😉
