PHB Pop-over Special: Stranger Things


“Friends don’t lie,” and this is no lie – we’ve got new costumes for you!

Crossing over between Poptropica and another franchise is back and under a poppin’ new name: Pop-over! (That’s ‘Poptropica’ and ‘crossover’, by the way.) You can check out past Pop-overs we’ve done here on the PHB in the new Pop-over category here.

And for this post’s Pop-over – as you can tell – we’re crossing over to the world of Stranger Things! Perhaps you’ve heard of it – Stranger Things is a Netflix-original drama (encompassing supernatural, science fiction, horror, mystery) that was released this summer and has since received wide acclaim.

Those of you who are fans of the show might enjoy this collection of costumes from the PHB – and the best part is, most of these parts are customizable! All you need to do is add the usernames shown in the picture above (or listed below) and use the Costumizer in your friends panel.

(If you didn’t already know, we have tools like iPop and MAP on our Glitching page that make it easy to customize your character – plus our ASG page is full of rare costumes!)

Stranger Things is currently out with just one season (8 episodes), so you can catch up in one weekend if you’re curious about this suspenseful story set in the ’80s!

It’s become a favorite among some of us on the PHB team, and we’re excited to share it with you. (Just keep in mind, there are some elements that may not be suitable for everyone – such as flashing lights, guns, and profanity. Generally speaking, it may not be your thing if you’re epileptic or under 13, but use your discretion. That being said, the storyline and setting is excellent, so check it out if it interests you!)

Hope you enjoyed this Stranger Things/Poptropica crossover! Let us know what you think of the show in the comments below, and as always, stay popping, Poptropicans! 😁👻

PHB Pop-over Special: Believe in Steven!

(This is a guest post by Shaky Skunk, a Poptropica blogger with her own site at the Poptropica Skunk Blog. Enjoy the costumes and crossover!)

Hey Poptropicans! Shaky Skunk here with a fun special this weekend, and you’d better believe it!

This is for Poptropica fans who also enjoy Cartoon Network’s series Steven Universe. I hope you enjoy these ASGs I made (well, besides the Steven one) and find use to them. (For more information about ASG-ing, check out the PHB’s Avatar Studio Gift page.)


Welcome to Beach City, home to Steven Universe and the Crystal Gems. Those guys are always going on amazing adventures, so let’s try to find them.

Hm… it seems like they’re not in the temple right now. Where could they be? …Aha! They’re having a Multiverse party in the Crystal Caverns… where they’re fighting off corrupted Centipeedles.

There’s Steven Universe, half-gem, half-human, and titular character of the show. He desperately wants to help fight, but he’s kinda in the middle of eating the last Cookie Cat.

A swarm of Centipeedles are headed in your direction, and there’s nothing you can do about it. Fortunately, Pearl jumps towards them, and stabs them with her spear, poofing them one by one.

Alright, I think you’re safe now. All of the Centipeedles have been bubbled. Hm, it’s not like your Poptropican not to be at the center of the show, but I guess you missed out on all the action…

Suddenly, a Centipeedle jumps onto your shoe, and starts crawling up your leg! You’re going to have to shake it off, or fight! What? You don’t have a weapon? SPLAT! …Oh, wait. Garnet — leader of the Crystal Gems — solved that…

Er, you might want to buy a new pair of shoes. What, Poptropicans are usually barefoot? Well, at least this still beats fighting Captain Crawfish. I think you should stop wiping your feet on that boulder. It looks kind of angry. Wait — that’s not a boulder! It’s Amethyst! Get out of here, before she starts whipping you!

Maybe you should just stick to island quests…

If you want to steal one of their outfits, just perform the ASG on Garnet-ASG, AmethystASG, PearlASG, or StevenUniverseASG (the names should be evident).

Remember, if every porkchop were perfect, we wouldn’t have hot dogs!

And that concludes this PHB Special. What do you think of Steven Universe? Let me know in the comments!

PHB Pop-over Special: Gotta Catch ‘Em All, Pokémon!

pop pokemon

Oh yes, we went there.

Welcome to Popémon Go, where Pokémon look like Poptropicans and Poptropicans look like Pokémon! In this weird crossover universe, we’re going to try to catch ‘em all. Are you ready?

First, we’ve gotta by our favorite Pokéstop… the prize wheel on Home Island! Let’s spin that circle! Awesome, we got just enough credits to stock up on some much needed Pokéballs. It’s time to hunt down those pocket monsters!

Look who’s hiding in these bushes… it’s Bulbasaur! How cute. Poptropicanized Pokémon sure look interesting, eh? By the way, you can look up the usernames given above to view the accounts, but unfortunately these are not ASGs. However, you can find all these clothing parts on our Avatar Studio Gift page – and some parts are customizable!

Oh great, three Zubats just popped up. Let’s add them to our collection of twenty other Zubats we’ve already captured… or not. Are they even worth wasting Pokéballs on if they’re too stubborn to be caught?

Moving on… hey, that Arcade over there happens to be a gym, currently dominated by Team Mystic! Blue for Poptropica, right, DJ Saturday Nite? There’s a Charmander screaming “fight me” in there, but it looks tough to beat… then again, if your Poptropican can handle the likes of Mordred from Astro-Knights or Myron Van Buren from Survival, perhaps the challenge is one we can tackle.

Hm, now we’re thinking maybe we could change up our trainer’s look a little. Let’s head over to that New You shop for a makeover. Perhaps a red cap will bring out that Ash Ketchum look that’ll make us look the part of a true Pokémon master. After all, you want to be the very best. Like no one ever was.

Let’s keep looking… oh! Awesome, someone put out a lure on the Photo Booth! Bet we can find some cool creatures here – oh look, it’s Squirtle! Just… let me tap on it… no, stop opening the Pokéstop, I want the Pokémon… ah. Gotcha. Wonder what else is around?

Hey! It’s – hold on a second, gotta sneeze – Pik-achuuuuu! I was wondering when this little guy would show up! I choose you, Pikachu! Ah, this is great. We can go on adventures to Mythology Island together and train those lightning bolt attacks with Zeus!

Well, that was a fun Pokémon hunting spree. What was that? Poptropicans should never be dressed up as Pokémon because that looks ridiculous? Sorry, too late for that! 😂

Oh, and as if the recent PHB Tribal Tournament wasn’t enough (friendly) rivalry… pick your team wisely when you’re on the Go!

Let us know in the comments what you think of Pokémon Go and the costumes we made! Stay popping, Poké-tropicans, and keep poking around!


PHB Pop-over Special: Over the Garden Wall

Hey Poptropicans! Hop over the garden wall with me, it’s time for another PHB Special!

For fans of the Cartoon Network mini-series Over the Garden Wall, I hope you like this little Poptropica crossover featuring the main adventurers, Greg and Wirt! If you like their Poptropica costumes, you can use the ASGs below or read further for how to get their costumes.


(If you’re not familiar with ASGs, see our Avatar Studio Gift page.)

GREG (ASG: otgwGreg)

There may not be a teapot you can wear on your head yet, but the Braised Basher’s mug-hat comes pretty close, and you can get it with the WKF_ASG_BraisedBasher ASG or the costume on the Poptropica app’s Store (but not online). Greg’s adorable green overalls come from Ned Noodlehead on Super Power Island, and his satchel comes from Octavian on Mystery of the Map.

For the whole package, just ASG otgwGreg!

WIRT (ASG: otgwWirt)

Wirt’s costume is actually pretty simple. The pointed red hat may not be all that pointed, but at least its fits the head snugly – and you can grab it off a guy from the Mali Empire on Time Tangled Island. As for the navy blue button-up, you can find it on Captain Boomer on SOS Island.

For the entire ensemble, just ASG otgwWirt!

There you have it! If you’ve never heard of Over the Garden Wall, it’s a cute animated series that can be completed in less than two hours, and it’s about two boys lost in the woods – it’s a good show for all ages, and one that we recommend here at the PHB!

Anyway, that concludes this little OTGW x Poptropica crossover! Off into the unknown we go!

PHB Pop-over Special: Gravity Falls Gang!

Gravitate over here, Poptropicans – it’s time for another PHB Special*!

(*Side note: PHB Specials are a category of posts that can pertain to a variety of things. You may be familiar with Blake’s Special scripts, for instance, of which the most recent is the Valentine’s Special.)

Many of us here at the PHB are fans of Gravity Falls (a Disney TV show), and if you are too, you may know that the finale will be upon us this Monday, February 15th! To commemorate this great show, and to acknowledge requests for more costumes, we’ve made some Gravity Falls Poptropica costumes for you to enjoy. (And if you’re not a fan, we highly recommend you start your binge-watching today. 😉 )


From left to right, here’s how you can get their costumes:

  • Soos: You can get his hat from the tent guy on Ghost Story and the shirt from the Bigfoot Fanatic costume in the Store. Alternatively, the green video game shirt from a guy on Reality TV also works, and it’s customizable when you friend phbSoos.
  • Dipper: His hat is from a guy on Lunar Colony’s Main Street, and the jacket is from a guy on Red Dragon’s Frog Creek. Simply friend phbDipper and customize.
  • Mabel: Her whole look can be achieved from the start at account creation. You can friend phbMabel and customize her whole look.
  • Grunkle Stan: His fez (hat) is from Time Tangled’s Timbuktu (Mali Empire), the suit from Spy Island, and you can buy Fake Noses from the Store (yes, we know Stan’s glasses aren’t like that, but close enough). (Extra: get the Timmy Failure Scarf in the Store and use the ASG on WillyWonkaASG for the cane!) Friend phbStanPines for the outfit. For the beard, use the ASG on ZeusASG. (Double extra: friend StanfordPines2 for Grunkle Ford’s costume!)
  • Wendy: Her freckles are from a lady on Cryptids Island, and the rest of her costume is from the clothing crank on Home Island. To make it simple, friend phbWendy and customize. For a plaid shirt instead, try the Fall Fashion Outfit from the Store – but note that this is red, not green.

These guys are also now on our Costumes page! Hope you enjoyed these costumes, and let us know what you think! 🙂 Oh, and if you have the Pixel Pig Power, you can pretend it’s Waddles. 😉

By the way, if you have any costume ideas, we would love to hear them – and you are more than welcome to make your own, especially with instructions or accounts to befriend for said costumes. The comments section of our Costumes page is a great place to start (as well as just to browse).


Let’s #TakeBackTheFalls together!
