24 Carrot Island, Dr. Hare's Revenge, Legendary Swords, Player Homes, Poptropica Store

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.

map start here 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’,

What Dr. Hare doesn’t want you to know…

Hey Poptropicans! Slanted Fish here.

Dave from Poptropica is back with a fresh new video, featuring a semi-fresh batch of carrots from Dr. Hare’s space station, topped with “6 Tips and Tricks for MASTERING Dr. Hare’s Revenge”! Ready? Here it comes…

(Nope, I don’t know why Cliff Housebuff is featured on the video thumbnail, either. He’s not selling real estate in Dr. Hare’s space station, is he?)

Anyway, the 6 tips & tricks are…

  1. Do not be alarmed by your super-human strength… when you lift that massive carrot rocket-ship out of the ground.
  2. Read the instructions… they’re right there for you.
  3. Aim for the tough carrots first, and save the easy ones for last. Maximize your time so you’re not panicking at the end!
  4. It’s no big deal if you don’t make it through a level before the timer goes off. You won’t get reset back; you can replay a level as many times as you like.
  5. Take note of the exit doors. The level doesn’t end when you get to all the carrots—it ends when you get to the exit door.
  6. Use the map… driving blind is a recipe for disaster.

What’s that? You want more? Dave says he’d love to give more tips—really, he would—”but it just wouldn’t be fair to everyone else.”

Well, here at the Poptropica Help Blog, we’re all about giving you guys the advantage—really, that’s what we’re here for. 😉 So, if you’re craving more advice, be sure to check out our Dr. Hare’s Revenge Guide—a complete walkthrough with pictures!

Alright Poptropicans, that’s all for now. Surprisingly, no livestream from Stephanie this week. However, be sure to check out the post below for a recap of November’s Community Creations, and start brewing for December’s theme: winter/holidays!

Stay merry, Poptropicans!

I say we go somewhere even funnier: Poptropica Original.

Hey Poptropicans! What do you tell a sick person on Poptropica?

“The doctor is Hare!”

Ha, ha…. aaand we’re just getting started. With a new video, Dave is about to fill you in on some more of “The Funniest Jokes in Poptropica Worlds”:

And the “funniest jokes” in Poptropica Worlds are…

  1. Scuttlebutt’s sick burn: calling you a “crusty bilge waffle”
  2. Beatrice’s ruthless dig on Hazel’s digs, when she says “I say we go somewhere even more depressing: your house.” (And it looks like Dave is referring to Beatrice with the conventional pronunciation now.)
  3. When Dr. Winslow tells you you’ll be safe underground: “It hasn’t exploded in, what, two weeks?”
  4. When King Mondo gets real with you: “Where else am I going to go?”
  5. When the gas station attendant tells you he doesn’t even have any gas.
  6. When you turn on the faucet to find Mr. Whiskers.
  7. The fact that anyone would order “carrot ice cream.”

Did any of these lines get you dying of laughter like Dave—or at least crack a smile?

Despite the humor, it seems not every Poptropican is amused enough by Poptropica’s latest videos. A commenter on the above video, SuperTalkCam (also known as TallMeloniscool), wrote this as part of a longer comment: “You did not list the funniest jokes, you listed all of the jokes.”

tm comment

The comment raises some fair points: the Poptropica Creators have been heavily promoting Poptropica Worlds since its release in May, yet there is much more content on Poptropica Original that isn’t getting the same love from the Creators in their YouTube content. The Creators have only been making these list videos recently, and so far, all the attention has gone to Pop Worlds.

Although we all want to see Worlds succeed, many of us are also longtime fans of the original game, and even those of us who are newer players can see that there is more to appreciate on Poptropica Original. Wouldn’t it be great to hear about our old favorites in Dave’s video lists? Wouldn’t it be a lot more exciting to see more than two islands being featured in all these new videos? Share your thoughts in the comments.


Also on YouTube, Stephanie has returned with another livestream! In this week’s episode (#10), she mentions that last week’s votes were miscounted, so she’ll actually be playing Dr. Hare’s Revenge in this video. (It’s more of a mini-game, though she refers to it as an island.) Catch the archived video below:

After spinning the daily wheel and changing up her outfit a bit, Stephanie heads over to Dr. Hare’s Revenge, where she speaks Carotenoid’s lines in a high-pitched voice, and then she’s off to nab some carrots! She plays through Zone 1, makes it through about half of Zone 2, and eats oatmeal cookies.

Have you played through all 40 levels of Dr. Hare’s Revenge yet? You’ll get a cool prize at the end! Be sure to check out our handy PHB guide for some tips.

Stay tuned for more Poptropica Worlds livestreams, which air on Poptropica’s YouTube every Friday afternoon (Eastern time).


Last but not least, we hope you had a great Thanksgiving—or if you don’t celebrate, then at least a decent Thursday night dinner. The 3 new food followers—Cran Barry, Punkie Pie, and Sweet Tato—are still waiting to be found on Poptropica Original, and according to the Creators, they’ll be gone by Monday—just like Thanksgiving leftovers.

Captain Crawfish even put out a post stuffed with sentiment to thank Poptropica players, both longtime fans and new ones. Poptropica Creators, we’re ever grateful for you too!

Speaking of giving thanks, THANK YOU to all of you loyal PHB readers! Thanks to all of you, especially those of you who come here often, we’ve reached 30 million hits here on the Poptropica Help Blog! That’s a pretty huge milestone, and you helped us get there.

We’re grateful that we get to reach such a wide audience of Poptropica fans, and we hope to keep at it for more days to come. Thanks for being part of our community—for checking back on our site to see what’s new, sharing your thoughts in the comments to encourage change in the game, creating amazing artwork to express what makes this game great, and so much more. Stay awesome, Poptropicans. ✌️💕

6 + 2 Awesome Moments on Worlds, feat. Dr. Hare’s Revenge for all and Livestream #5!

Hey there, good players of Poptropica!

It’s Purple Claw here bringing you all an abundance of Poptropica news!

To start off, the new mini-game Dr. Hare’s Revenge is now open to all! It’s still in beta, which means it’s not quite finalized, and you can leave feedback in a survey that will pop up after you finish a zone in the game. Here at the PHB, we’ve finalized our Dr. Hare’s Revenge Guide at last, so check out the new page for a video and written walkthrough!

drHaresRevengeBanner_2_allAccessSocial

Dr. Hare’s Revenge was released for members only as a beta two-and-a-half weeks ago. Also, if you’re playing from your mobile device, you get to try a new control scheme, with a virtual joystick and jump button!

The basic gist of this game is that you have to stop Dr. Hare from getting his revenge by going to different types of areas called zones and collecting all the carrots. There are four zones, each one consisting of 10 levels each. After you finish the first zone, you’ll be asked to fill out a quick survey, which will help the Creators gauge players’ thoughts on this game and plan out what to put out next on Poptropica!


Over on YouTube, Poptropica uploaded a video titled 6 AWESOME Moments in Poptropica Worlds where Gentle Lion (a newer narrator we’ve been hearing more from) shares his 6 favorite moments from Worlds. Check it out:

Here is his list of awesome moments, summarized below:

  1. The Carrot Museum: It’s a great place to learn more about carrots, their origins and what they do.
  2. The journey to the lair of the mole people: On Crisis Caverns Island, you’ll come across a civilization of mole people, who are in a war against the chthonians.
  3. Finding hidden quests: You don’t always have to follow a single path! You should try to talk to every person you meet and have an eye on the hidden quests that aren’t required, but are fun!
  4. Infiltrating 24 Carrot Island’s factory: This island is all about sneaking in the factory and prevent Dr. Hare from mind-controlling everyone in the world of Poptropica
  5. Escaping the center of the earth: Even after you put an end to the war the mole people have against the chthonians, the supervolcano is going to erupt anyway so you have to hurry up and get out of the underground as fast as possible!
  6. Adventures you make yourself: the ways you can costumize yourself, decorate the house, and adventure is unique and different from anyone else’s.

We at the PHB have a sneaking suspicion that Gentle Lion may be the mystery blogger over at the Creators’ Blog, since his character in this video (and recent videos and blog posts) wears the same sunglasses as the blond guy we saw in earlier screenshots.

His voice in the videos suggests he’s pretty young, which may explain his inexperience with writing. Again, this is just a theory, not proof — but he is doing a great job on these videos, so we hope to keep seeing more of them!


In other Pop YouTube news, another new-ish Creator, Stephanie, hosted livestream #5 this Friday, October 20 at 3 PM EST. Catch the archived video below:

In this episode, Stephanie spent more time decorating her house, this time exploring the members-only house expansion (extra room) feature. She’s spent the last couple of livestream episodes talking about houses, so personally, I’d like to see something new next time. I really wish they made more stuff about Poptropica Original, since there’s way more content over there.

Regardless, I found the video pretty interesting, and I’m glad the quality of each livestream keeps improving. It looks like the videos are starting to be more consistent, too, so perhaps we can keep expecting them on Fridays at about 3 PM EST. Whenever they’ll be, we can be sure to expect a new livestream every week!


Last but not least, Poptropica Comics are back! Check out the newest adventures following Oliver and Jorge on an island of nice people, then werewolves, then a sneeze-inducing moon over on GoComics (which got a redesign back in January):

The Poptropica GoComics site now has an About page, which introduces the comic and cast. Unlike the graphic novel series, Mya is not part of the comics.

comic boys

There is also a mobile app for the Pop comics, but it doesn’t seem to be updated, and the FunBrain page for Pop comics has strangely disappeared. But on GoComics, a new comic strip has been coming out every few days or so, so hopefully that keeps going!

Anyway, thanks for reading this post! What do you think of these updates? Share your thoughts in the comments!

24 Carrot Island, Dr. Hare's Revenge, Player Homes

Dr. Hare’s Revenge, minus the Hare, plus bouncy beds

Hey Poptropicans! Big news in the Poptropica sphere this week…

…if you’re a member, that is. But even if you aren’t, don’t worry — you’ll get to play this update soon. So what’s up? Well, Dr. Hare is back (kind of) in a new mini-game called Dr. Hare’s Revenge! Check out the sweet animated video promo:

In this game, which you can find on your map in Poptropica Worlds, Dr. Hare (who you may remember from 24 Carrot Island) has set a series of challenges for you: find your way around each maze full of tricks and traps, collecting all the carrots before time runs out. There are four zones of 10 levels each, which gives you plenty of gameplay and scenery to be entertained with.

Check out this full playthrough video from the PHB’s very own Brave Tomato:

Since this is currently still in beta, members who play this game during this early access period get to take a survey after completing Zone 1, in which you can give your feedback to the Poptropica Creators! They want to know what you think, so be sure to fill it out if you can! This style of gameplay is definitely following a different direction than a typical Poptropica island, yet it is a common mobile gaming trend with its simple objective and ascending level difficulties — but what do you think of it?

Also, if you’re playing this on a mobile phone or tablet, you also get to try out a whole new control scheme. With it, you can move around using an on-screen joystick and jump button. Again, the Creators want to know your thoughts on this!

worlds joystick

The game itself is pretty exciting, but there is one thing worth pointing out: despite the name, Dr. Hare himself doesn’t make an appearance, instead letting his rabbot droids run the show! It looks like Poptropica has pulled another Dr. Hare’s Secret Lab — but at least Dr. Hare’s Revenge is quite a bit more interesting.

When you’ve completed Dr. Hare’s Revenge, you’ll win 500 coins and a cool trophy of Dr. Hare’s head for your house! Plus, you can always replay levels to beat your high scores and see where you’re at on the leaderboards.


On a comparatively less exciting note, but an exciting one all the same, there’s been an update to house decor: you can now stand on your furniture (the ones that make sense to do so, anyway — and yes, this one applies to everyone)! Jumping on beds will even make your character bounce with a satisfying springing sound.

Alright, that’s all for this post! Let us know what you think of Dr. Hare’s Revenge and furniture fun in the comments below!
