You’ll also get a free Beaver Follower! This chonky boi (who goes up to your shoulders!) can go with you most places, but not common rooms.
Another thing: You can Costumize every part of Dr. Beev’s costume, from the cute pink goggles down to the big swishy tail. Enjoy!
All this Beev fan service from the Poptropica Creators sure is a pleasant surprise! Now that’s a Mocktropica-flavored update we don’t mind. 🙂
If you’re reading this on Tuesday, September 15, it’s still Beev Day! Come join the party on the PHC with hanging out in common rooms, racing through Mocktropica Island, and going wild on the voice chat (possibly with derailed conversations about the Myron Van and El Pistachio—sorry Beev). Or watch it on TheOrangeHe’s Twitch livestream!
Let’s take another moment to appreciate how the Creators actually put the Great Dr. Beev into the game. Pretty surreal, especially for the Beev’s small but growing cult following! Happy Beev Day, Poptropicans! 🐿
Note: The following event is not organized by the PHB, but will be taking place on our Discord server, the PHC! Hear it from MaryannTheConqueror…
We, a group of Poptropica Month participants, have decided to announce a very special day for all Poptropicans, in honor of a very special character. Even though the Poptropica Creators hardly acknowledge him, this character is much loved by the Poptropica fan community, which is why we have decided to hold this event:
🐿 In Honor of the Great Dr. Beev 🐿
What: Beev Party!
When: September 15, 2020 (Tuesday) at 12 p.m. Eastern (11 a.m. Central / 10 a.m. Mountain / 9 a.m. Pacific — for other time zones, use a converter. It may be late night Tuesday or early morning Wednesday in some parts of the world.)
Where: 24 Carrot cinema common room (Flash version) and the PHC (including voice chat!)
What to prepare: Anything Beev related!!! Stories, theories, fan art, your love, etc.
In addition to partying it up in the cinema on 24 Carrot Island (home of Dr. Beev’s inferior mirror, Dr. Hare) and hanging out on the PHC, we’ll also be playing through Mocktropica Island to find the elusive picture of the beloved beaver-doctor in the trash can. Some of us may also be making videos in honor of this great character and his takeover, so keep an eye out for those. Mark your calendars and join us for a fun time!
We will not stop showing our support for the great Dr. Beev until the Poptropica Creators give us a Dr. Beev costume, beaver pets, and maybe even an entire Beev Island! (And it better not be for members only, or there’ll be rioting in the common rooms…)
Update: Here’s a video announcing everything mentioned above!

Rise up, Poptropicans! It’s time to find out which tribe reigns supreme!
The PHB’s 2020 Tribal Tournament has come to an end, and it’s time to recap the results, which were also announced earlier at our closing ceremony. We hope those of you who came had as much fun at the party as we did! It was a great time mingling, cheering, and going head-to-head in different games — this time just for the sheer fun of it. 😉 Did you make it into the photo collage?
Above all, we’d like to thank those who participated with dynamism and unquestionable team spirit the whole way through. It sure was an exciting event and we couldn’t have pulled it off without you. Now, onto the results!
🔥 Creative Competitors 🎨
For our first round, which transpired throughout the entire event, it was all about art and creativity. Many Poptropicans sent in their written works, visual pieces, musical compositions, and more Poptropica-based fan creations!
We looked for effort, so players earned 10 points for their tribe for every creation they submitted. Here are the results:
Black Flags – 570
Wildfire – 240
Nanobots – 190
Flying Squid – 180
Nightcrawlers – 120
Seraphim – 40
Pathfinders/Yellowjackets – 30

🧠 Genius Games 💪
In Genius Games, there were three outlets to obtaining points which included: the Caption Contest, Tricky Trivia, and Trace That Place.
The Caption Contest was exactly what it sounds like. We provided a photo of a funky Poptropica scene and it was your task to come up with a caption that best captured the essence of the picture. There were entries that were witty, outright laughable, and some even brutal in their honesty. Here are the stats along with a collection of some of our favorites:
Wildfire – 170
Black Flags – 130
Nanobots – 110
Flying Squid – 90
Pathfinders – 30
Nightcrawlers/Seraphim/Yellowjackets – 0
“Everyone once quarantine ends” – Tall Melon (Nanobots)
“Oh, this? Just a normal day in Poptropica.” – Incredible Fire (Wildfire)
For Tricky Trivia, team members worked together to answer 20 trivia questions (each worth 10 points) regarding Poptropica — both in and out of the game. Most were fairly simple, but a few were pretty challenging as well. Regardless, many tribes were able to get most, and even all, of them correct! (list in alphabetical order; not by score)
Black Flags – 200/200
Flying Squid – 190/200
Nanobots – 200/200
Nightcrawlers – 110/200
Pathfinders – 190/200
Seraphim – 50/200
Wildfire – 190/200
Yellowjackets – 0/200
Trace That Place was a scavenger-hunt-esque game where participants had to put their scenery observation skills to the test. There were 16 screenshots from various different islands, and it was up to the players to collaboratively figure out where they come from. Here are the results:
The final round captured the true essence of what makes Poptropica so great — completing Islands! In this case, the medallions from Poptropolis Games, Reality TV, and Reality TV: Wild Safari were the ones to go after. For each completion of an island, the tribe would earn 10 points. Here’s the list:
Ouch! Coming in at last place with a mere 30 points are the Yellowjackets. That must sting quite a bit. Looks like you’re gonna have to bee better next time, guys.
They may not have gotten the win, but at least they’re not last — it’s the Seraphim! 130 points are all for this tribe but don’t be discouraged, seraphs. Just keep on soaring!
6th place isn’t anything to write home about, but the Nightcrawlers‘ effort in and of itself is still worth celebrating. What you gonna do with those 400 points? Wiggle wiggle wiggle…
The Pathfinders couldn’t seek their way to the top this time, but it was one heck of a journey! At the top of the bottom, the navigators stand confident at 5th place with 480 points.
Here comes a green wave, and we’re not squidding, because snorkeling in at 4th place is the Flying Squid. Not half bad, guys!
Things are heating up as we boil down to the top three. The Wildfire finished off hot racking up a total of 780 points! Way to bring some fire to the competition!
*beep* *boop* And I oop! Don’t let these little crabs deceive you. Nanobots defeated all odds by coming in 2nd place and pulling in a solid 1000 points. That’s no easy feat, so kudos to you guys!
Arrr you mateys ready to find out who took home the treasure this year? You guessed it — it’s the rowdy and ruthless Black Flags!
Winning by an absolute landslide — with over double the amount of points of their successors — these scallywags have more than deserved their reign as champions until the next games. Ahoy!
Black Flags – 2420 (570 + 490 + 1360) 🥇
Nanobots – 1000 (190 + 470 + 340) 🥈
Wildfire – 780 (240 + 520 + 20) 🥉
Flying Squid – 740 (180 + 440 + 120)
Pathfinders – 480 (30 + 420 + 30)
Nightcrawlers – 400 (120 + 260 + 20)
Seraphim – 130 (40 + 50 + 40)
Yellowjackets – 30 (30 + 0 + 0)
3️⃣ Round III: Most Valuable Player 🏅
And for the last result of the tournament, we’d like to award Pegs (Muddy Kid) with the third week’s MVP prize! Thank you for your never-ending dedication, and congratulations on your membership! You’ve done the Nanobots proud, so enjoy every second of it and feel free to take your bow.

Lights? Check. Internet connection? Check. Dr. Beev—wait, come again?
This weekend, we hosted the Poppies, our annual fan-directed Poptropica awards event, in celebration with the PHB’s 12th birthday. And what an event!
Despite the lack of Multiverse rooms (that feature disappeared a while back), just a few classic head-to-head mini-games to play (only Balloons, Sky Dive, and Star Link remain), and our decision to forego the traditional livestream in favor of concentrating our energy on announcing Poppies winners via our PHC Discord chat server, we had fun in the presence of emojis of all kinds (including the beloved Dr. Beev, the Dr. Hare/beaver parody from Mocktropica Island) and hit up the Party Time Tower on Time Tangled and Midas Gym on Mythology to shake the floors with our stellar outfits and groovy dance moves.
But enough about that, right? You want to know who won, and we’re here to bring you the highlights. Our winners for the 2020 Poppies are…
