Walkthrough with pictures by Slanted Fish

Kids are missing, carrots are missing, even the cat is missing. Welcome to the dystopian world of 24 Carrot Island! (Fun fact: “24 Carrot” is a pun on “24 karat,” meaning gold in its purest form.) Jump to parts of the guide:

  1. Give milk to cat
  2. Open sewer
  3. Disable security
  4. Get Drone Ears
  5. Defeat Dr. Hare

Step 1: Give milk to cat

The first task is to return a missing cat, Whiskers, to her owner, Charlie. From Main Street, where you started, head left to the Funny Bunny Carrot Farm.

Keep going left until you reach a house. Jump up on the ledge near a window, then up again onto the blue roof. From there, hop onto the chimney and click to enter through it. Inside the house, pick up the Empty Bowl on the ground.

Leave the house by going left and exiting by the red fireplace. Hop off the chimney and exit the carrot farm.

Back on Main Street, head inside the Carrot King Diner. Ask the waitress to fill your bowl with milk. Your empty bowl will become a Bowl of Milk.

Now go back to the carrot farm, and go inside the house again. You’ll automatically set the bowl down where you’d found it.

Go right and get to the second floor by climbing up the light fixture. Then go all the way left and into the bathroom. Turn one of the bath tub faucets, and Whiskers the cat will jump out of the bath, then head downstairs and drink the milk. Once that happens, the cat will follow you.

Step 2: Open sewer

Guide Whiskers back to Main Street and into the tool store, Charlie’s Carrot Surplus Co. Return Whiskers to Charlie, and Charlie will give you a Crowbar.

Leave Charlie’s store and go all the way right to the abandoned carrot cake factory. Climb onto the roof and reach for the Vent Blueprints sticking out of the top window. They’ll help you navigate the vent system inside.

Now jump down to the red cans in the dirty water. Look for the big greenish-brown pipe next to the cans, and click on it. You’ll use your crowbar to pry it open. That’s your way in!

Step 3: Disable security

Yeah, the inside of the factory isn’t much better than the exterior โ€” especially since you’ve just entered the sewers.

Head left and jump on the small ledge above you, and onto the right platform. Run across the red trapdoors when they form a path. If you fall, just keep trying! Avoid the big rat by using using the extra pipe above you. At the end, go up.

Master Engine Room

In this next room, pull the green master engine’s middle lever down all the way, and pull the other levers only halfway. Then climb up to the platform with a pyramid of barrels and a stack of boxes. Jump onto the stack of boxes, then wait until the claw comes around.

When it arrives, jump onto the claw, but then jump onto the claw’s top. If you stay on the bottom of the claw, you can fall through its hole, so be careful. Ride the claw all the way to the far right platform. Enter the open vent at the end.

Vent System

You are now in the vent system. Use the vent blueprints in your inventory to help guide you to the Processing Room. Here’s the full picture of the vent system schematic, courtesy of the Poptropica Wiki:


Along the way, you should find some Wire Cutters. Pick them up.

Then continue working your way to the Processing Room. Once inside, jump to the ground, and wait for the security system to automatically transport you to the Freezer.


Click the small metal box on the wall labeled “Security System.” Use the wire cutters to cut all the wires, with the gray scissor end pointed at the wires.

Step 4: Get Drone Ears

Climb up to a high platform to enter the vent system again. Use the blueprints to help you get to the Printer Room.

Printer Room

Inside the Printer Room, make sure you avoid the falling crates, because they will knock you over if you bump into them! Now disable the mind-controlled drone near the printer by distracting her (ask what’s behind her) and pressing the power button in the middle of her rabbot ears.

She will give you a printout with the System Password on it: “fuzzybunny.” Grab the paper, then head right and look for the other mind-controlled kids.

Talk to the two other mind-controlled kids, and while they’re distracted, press the power button on their drone ears to turn them off. They’ll be free!

Now, go over and click the big metal doors. You will fall down in a trap and land in the Smelter Room. Don’t worry โ€” you’ll get something you need here.

Smelter Room

Jump down the red platform to land on a conveyor belt. Make sure not to go when the pipes land, or you’ll be squished! Run to the far right end of the conveyor belt and jump up onto the pipe. Then jump up again and grab the Drone Ears. Go to your inventory and put them on.

Step 5: Defeat Dr. Hare

Head up the exit pipe, and you’ll be back in the Processing Room. With your drone ears on, go back over to the big metal doors and click on them. This time, you’ll pass the security and enter the Rabbot Room.

Rabbot Room

Talk to Dr. Hare, who’ll bark at you like you’re of his drones. Climb onto the giant rabbot structure and find the computer station on the top right. Talk to the kid there and power down his drone ears to free him.

Click on the computer to use it. Using the purple keyboard, enter the password: “fuzzybunny”, then press the enter key. Next, enter the command: “launch rabbot” (be sure to use the space key in between words). Then, the rabbot will begin its launch into outer space!

It’s time to stop the evil Dr. Hare! Steer the rabbot into four meteors. When the rabbot hits the fourth meteor, it will be destroyed and Dr. Hare will float into oblivion. No more kidnapper and carrot thief exploiting the town!

Follow the kid up the rope to get out of the factory. With Dr. Hare out of the picture, the island can now return to its former splendor! Back on Main Street, talk to the mayor, and he’ll give you the Island Medallion and credits to spend at the store. Congratulations, you have completed 24 Carrot Island!

  • 24 Carrot Island is Poptropicaโ€™s 4th island, released on June 6, 2008.
  • 24 Carrot is the first island to feature a full-length soundtrack with โ€˜better navigationโ€™ (the common room cursor, but easier to use) and a bigger screen, released as the 24 Carrot BETA Carrotene Island (a pun on the chemical compound beta-carotene as well as beta testing) on June 20, 2013. Only members were able to test out the beta, and they received a free Beta Tester Costume to keep forever (this costume was also what they had to wear while playing the beta). There is also a 24 Carrot BETA Carrotene medallion (which is silver and gold, unlike the others which are plain gold) in the Friends profile section.
  • The original 24 Carrot had an extra Printer Room in the factory, but this was combined with the Processing Room in the 2020 re-release of the island to Poptropica’s Haxe build. The Printer Room can still be seen on the vent blueprint.
  • 24 Carrot Island was re-released for Steam on May 25, 2022.
  • Before 24 Carrot was released, Monster Carnival Island appeared on the map as โ€œcoming soonโ€. However, it was replaced by 24 Carrot Island with no explanation. You can read more about this in the PHB article entitled Mystery of Monster Carnival.
  • The name โ€œ24 Carrotโ€ is a play on the phrase 24 karat, meaning gold in its purest form.
  • Common room: Cinema โ€“ showing Night of the Living Carrots and Carrots of Fire, which parodies the names of the films Night of the Living Dead and Chariots of Fire.
  • You can change your hair color by mixing a drink with your desired color in the Carrot King Diner.
  • The villain, Dr. Hare, reappears in Super Villain Island. He is also a Poptropica Creator.
  • According to the Poptropica Ultimate Sticker Collection book, Whiskers is a โ€œheโ€.
  • On the factory, there is a sign that says Est. 1830, though Early Poptropica claims to have been established in 1982. Poptropica was released in 2007.
  • There used to be a mini-quest in the Store called Dr. Hareโ€™s Secret Lab. Dr. Hare himself is not present, but youโ€™ll encounter some of his slaves in his lair.
  • The description on the item card for the crowbar says, โ€œIf at first you donโ€™t succeed, pry, pry again.โ€ (The crowbar is used to pry open the factory entrance.) This is a pun on the English proverb โ€œIf at first you donโ€™t succeed, try, try again.โ€
  • According to the Poptropica teaching guide for 24 Carrot, the owner of the Carrot King Diner is named Tony.
  • According to the Poptropica Ultimate Sticker Collection book, the mayorโ€™s name is McTeague and the waitress is called Flo.

  1. Ever since the new island updates, I can’t get on this island. It never loads. Can someone please help me with this problem? Thanks, Shy Fire

    Slanted Fish: Try playing on a different web browser or computer, and contact Poptropica about the problem.

  2. After Charlie gave me the crowbar I went to the factory and there were no red cans near the pipe. What should I do?

    1. What red cans? Anyways, you can go on top of the pipe and it will open if you use the crowbar there (If that’s what you are talking about).

      1. Look-the red cans in the water. If there is no red cans your character just falls in the water. If there are your character jumps on a can and jumps back to the pipe and opens the entrance, and then he/she can enter the factory.

  3. Problem: The pipe will not let me open it. i have tried. but there is also no red and white cans on mine. did you do some kind of update on this?

  4. when i had finished the island i pretended to help build it idk why but i just wanted to now i will look for more of ur guides very helpful you rock phb

  5. Hi HPuterPop, Scary Tomato, Slanted Fish, Codien and whoever else is on the PHB staff that I forgot to mention,
    I have been experiencing a glitch:
    After I snag the crowbar from Charlie for returning Whiskers, I go to the factory and grab the vent blueprint then drop down to the pipe. According to your guide, there should be a bunch of red and white canisters floating in the muck, however when I go to open the pipe using the crowbar there are no canisters and Fast Flame keeps jumping up and down trying to reach the pipe but never succeeding because there is nothing for her to stand on. This is a major stumbling block for me as without the ability to open the pipe and get into the factory I cannot complete the island ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    Please reply as without a solution to this glitch I can’t do 24 Carrot.
    Fast Flame

    Slanted Fish: It sounds like a glitch. Try restarting the island and contacting Poptropica so they might fix it. ๐Ÿ˜›

    1. EDIT: I have tried going to the main street and back to the factory, going to another island and even restarting it but the canisters continue to elude me. :slumps onto laptop trackpad and sighs: ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    2. EDIT: I just went and tried it again after doing Mocktropica Island and it’s still glitching. GRRR STUPID PROGRAMMER!!!!!! >:^<

  6. I love 24 Carrot Island, but the new one won’t work on my laptop. I click on the island and it takes me to a black screen and nothing happens.

  7. Every time I try to enter 24 carrot island, ya know the new one with color, on my laptop, or any computer, the screen just goes black and it never loads and if I press the ”back” button, it just sends me to the same page.Is there anything I can do…or nah?

  8. This was really helpful thx I used one of ur other ones and it helped me pass it so keep on posting and p.s my uncles name is Charlie too lol!!!!!

  9. Everything is very open with a clear explanation of the issues.
    It was definitely informative. Your website is very helpful.
    Thank you for sharing!

  10. This Island was EASY! Also, for some reason I said “The Claw…” to myself on the claw part. I thought it was funny, and it was also a movie reference (The aliens in Toy Story 1 and 3).

  11. This is so helpful, I am almost finished
    With all the islands and all of my friends
    Ask me for help on this game, I have all
    The instructions memerized. Thank you!

    1. We aren’t cheaters we are people who got confused and needed help. It’s just like in school if you have a question on how to do a problem the teachers don’t say “Hey you are such a cheater I won’t tell you the answer!” Teachers help and that’s what this blog does, it helps.

  12. This Is one of the first islands i beat! the guide shows it different then i remember (probably cause i last beat it a couple years ago!)

  13. There was only a few things I couldn’t understand on how to do. I read this walkthrough and it all made sense! You guys have helped me in most of the Islands, you are my number one resource to go to when I don’t understand something about an Island!

  14. Thanks for helping me can help me forever i get the hang of this now your the best

  15. Just found this game and site, thanks so much, I was so confused as this is only my second island and Money Wrench was much easier. Awesome though. ^.^

  16. I can’t get to the carrot farm. It won’t let me go any further than just left once past the sign. Help!

  17. tnx poptropi.ca! i just made an acc just so i can say how great-full i am bc of ur website! but come to think of it, i. just… cant even DESCRIBE how great-full i am! tnx! but i g2g nowww! byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee :3 :3 :3

  18. I have a character named Small Comet and another named Silly Socks. It like Small Comet has the same last name (or second name or whatever you call it) as Crazy Comet. And Silly Socks has the same last name as Magic Socks. What are the odds of that?๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿคฏ

    1. In order to get the Carrot Transporter, you would have to go in the sewers at the factory, pass the rat by jumping on the small ledge and it should be on the ground when heading to your left.

      1. The Carrot Transporter was an item in the original 24 Carrot Island released in 2008. It allowed you to teleport yourself outside of the factory. The current version, released in 2020, removed it, probably because it’s unnecessary now that you can teleport outside to Home Island anytime with the map.

  19. Hi, every time I try to play on an island it freezes in 22 seconds and then I have to restart all over again. what should I do?????

    1. Try contacting Poptropica on their Contact Us page. It’s way at the bottom of the screen on the Creator’s Blog.

  20. And I’m a HUMONGOUS fan of thinknoodels and so can you add a video walkthrough with thincknoodles???? THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. Hi slanted fish, The websites you gave me did not give me any useful information. And I kinda think that I should change the website I’m playing on because I’m playing on a website called “COOL MATH GAMES'” and I don’t know which website you guys play on.

    1. Poptropica.com/help is meant to be where you can contact Poptropica support by sending them a message about your game issue so they can fix it for you. Click on “For Players” at the top and then “Report a Bug” to send your message, and include an email address so they can respond to you.

      And yes, the original website most people play on is Poptropica.com.

      1. THANKS, A TON SLANTED FISH!!!!!๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜†

  22. I already sent a bug report about 24 Carrot Island freezing right when I get on it. This also happened to me on Mythology Island. I put in an email and haven’t gotten a response even at the end of the day. I know it will probably take them some time to respond, but what would be the usual time interval it takes them to do so?

    1. That happened to me with Mythology. What you do is not play the island for a while, and then eventually the glitch will unfreeze, and you will be able to go on the island again. It seems like a while to wait, but when you focus on all the other islands and the other side quests, time seems to fly be, and soon you’ll be back on 24 Carrot.

  23. I have this weird glitch at the farmhouse. I already completed the island, and I went to the farmhouse to see if one of the hypnotized people were there. I went inside the house and up to where I found the cat in the shower, and the cat was standing there. I clicked on the cat and my character did nothing. Since the cat is supposed to be with it’s owner, can anyone explain this glitch?

    1. Ami i supposed to go right from exiting the printer room or am i supposed to go right IN the printer room

  24. for good I already know that It has been awesome in all places except for the freezer room and the place you get the drone ears.
