Great Pumpkin Island Guide


Halloween is here, but not all of the PEANUTS kids are celebrating – not when Charlie Brown keeps getting tricks instead of treats, Snoopy is attacked by the infamous Red Baron, and Linus waits all night for the Great Pumpkin. Can you set things right and save Halloween?

The (Great?) Pumpkin

Start off by going to the right of Great Pumpkin Island to the pumpkin patch. Find Linus and talk to him. He will ask you to give his sister (Lucy) the heaviest pumpkin.

To do this, put any two random pumpkins on the balance scale to measure them. Set the lighter pumpkin off to the side so you won’t pick it up again, and keep weighing the pumpkins until you get to the heaviest one (the last one remaining), then give it to Lucy. Be quick, you only get 30 seconds!

Lucy will then ask you to roll the pumpkin over to the Van Pelt house. To do this, just keep pushing it. When you reach the rabbit holes, don’t let the rabbits come up under the pumpkin. If it touches a rabbit head, it will be sent flying and you’ll have to start over from your last checkpoint (flag).


To avoid getting it stuck in the log, build up speed on the pumpkin before rolling it through there. At the swing set, get as close as possible and stop, then roll through quickly while all three kids swing back.

Van Pelt house

At the Van Pelt house, after Lucy cuts the pumpkin, speak to Linus and he will reward you with a Trick-or-Treat Bag.

Then Lucy will chop the pumpkin, and a quick cutscene will follow. Later, give the bag to Pig-Pen (the dusty boy outside the house), and he will give you a lemon-flavored Sucker in return.

Return to Linus, give him the sucker, and he will give you a Party Invitation.

When he leaves the room, walk over to his desk and pick up the Pen. Exit the house.

Leaf pile

Walk left to reach Charlie Brown’s Backyard. Talk to Charlie, and he’ll ask Snoopy to help him put the falling leaves into a pile. You will then get to play as Snoopy – your task is to wait for a leaf to fall and use the dog’s breath to move left until the leaf rests onto the pile of leaves. Do this for five leaves.


Then Linus, with his wet sucker and blanket flying behind him like a cape, will jump in and ruin the pile.

Go back to Main Street, where you will find Linus by the mailbox. Talk to him, and he’ll wonder where is blanket went. Go back to the backyard, click on the remains of the pile, and move your cursor in a fast and circular motion to blow the leaves out of the way, revealing Linus’s Blanket.


Go back to Main Street and and return the blanket to Linus, who is standing by the mailbox at the far right. He will use the blanket to mail his letter to the Great Pumpkin.


Now return to the backyard, where Lucy is trying to talk Charlie Brown into letting her practice a football trick with him. She even asks him to sign a document stating that she won’t trick him, but Charlie doesn’t have a pen. Give Charlie the pen you got from Linus’s desk and he will sign the contract. However, Lucy tricks him anyway and he falls flat on his back trying to kick.


Plus, it turns out the contract was never notarized. Sorry, Charlie!

Flying Ace

Pick up the Football from the ground and go over to Snoopy.

Throw it up in the air, and the aviator cap will be knocked out of the tree. Now playing as a World War I flying ace (Snoopy), your mission is to infiltrate the enemy’s territory and last 60 seconds without being shot down to succeed.

All you have to do is fly around on Snoopy’s doghouse and avoid the bombs being dropped from the Red Baron’s plane. One way is to fly inverted along the top of the screen. When he drops bombs, veer back the opposite way to dodge them.


Crashing behind enemy lines, your character and Snoopy will have to avoid being seen by the searchlight. Hide behind rocks, in a trench, in a haystack, behind a road marker, in the river, behind a bush at a shed, and finally behind a chimney.

Once you get all the way to the right, click to go right.

Halloween Party

Take the green Halloween Mask off the scarecrow and put it on your face.

Enter the farmhouse and a voice will welcome you, saying, “Come on in and join the party!” Inside, you will see kids from the Peanuts gang partying in the spirit of Halloween.


Succeed at each of the party games:

  • Bobbing for Apples: Click on apples when they are up. Bite 6 of them, and don’t miss – three strikes before you win means you have to play again!
  • Drawing a Jack o’ Lantern: Carve out any reasonable face you like into the pumpkin by drawing on Charlie Brown, who is modeling for this task.
  • Pin the Face on the Pumpkin: Put each of the 5 features (stem, right eye, mouth, nose, and left eye) close to where they belong, in the dark. Get at least 85% accuracy to win.
  • Schroeder’s Piano: To play the song, press the key below each of the falling balls when it enters a box in the row above the keys. Hit the correct notes while keeping Snoopy’s dance rate above the red line to win. There will be sound when playing this game!

Trick or Treat!

Once that’s done, you get to go trick-or-treating! Go with the gang dressed up in costumes when they walk away from the pumpkin patch. Knock on the door by clicking on the house. Candy will be thrown into the air. Jump up to get one of the treats.

From the four houses you visit, you’ll get four different types of candy. Each time, the gang will report on what they received – and Charlie Brown will always get a rock.

Take the Bag of Candy to share with Linus and Sally back at the pumpkin patch. A cutscene will follow where Sally storms off angrily, having been cheated out of tricks-or-treats time as there was no Great Pumpkin after all.


Lucy comes in thanks you for watching her over little brother Linus, who later falls asleep in the pumpkin patch. She will award you with the Island Medallion and credits to spend in the Poptropica Store. Good grief!

  • Great Pumpkin Island is Poptropica’s 15th island. It was released on September 30, 2010 for members, and October 14, 2010 for non-members.
  • As of July 10, 2015, the island became locked to members only, with a demo for non-members.
  • The island is based on the classic Peanuts TV special It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.
  • During the early access period (Sept 30–Oct 14, 2010), members who logged in received an exclusive Woodstock Follower item.
  • Starting from September 7, 2010, a preview version of the island was available to everyone. As the days went by, more characters were added to the island to be interacted with: first Charlie and Linus, then Lucy, then Snoopy.
  • Common room: Flying Ace Cafe
  • While trick-or-treating, Charlie Brown will always get a rock, unless you get it first.
  • Because the characters are drawn in the style of the Peanuts comics, they are not customizable.
  • You’ll play as Snoopy as he avoids the Red Baron, a German fighter pilot during World War 1.

good grief!

      1. Look every time i do the piano i am doing so well the my guy says snoopy dose not like it

      1. Same here, except 20 times. I didn’t put the sound on, instead I hummed my own tune o3o.

    1. easiest island yet thanks! i spent a whole month trying to beat it restarted it with this guide it took 5 minutes

  1. I only read the last line, the end, and I was kinda dissapointed that there WASN’T a great pumpkin. 😛 But anyway, can’t wait to play! 😀

  2. This island was kinda fun. I was smiling when I realized that Charlie Brown was always going to get a rock. But to me, it was way too short. It’s about the equivalent of Shark Tooth or Early Pop. I guess they wanted the younger kids to keep playing.

    1. Yeah…it seriously should have been waayy longer..i mean i finished it within an hour! i think it might even be a little shorter than shark tooth and reality tv!!

      1. well, i just finished it for the sake of it being finished and out of the way, it could be a bit longer… the best island is skullduggery island.

    2. i was a bit dissapointed about how short it was, too…but i guess little kids need games too. also, if this game is for younger kids (which it probly is) the shouldnt have made the piano game so hard!!!

  3. next to early poptropica in my personal opinion this is the easiest island. but however it is nice to have a small easy island break after steamworks and skull duggery. it is a shame though that you can’t replay the multiple games that appear throughout the island

  4. Great pumpkin has only been out for a few days and you already have a walk through! this is the most helpful blog ever!

  5. Hey. 🙂 Remember the part where you need to get the blanket? I can’t seem to get out the remaining parts of the leaves… 😦 Please give me some tips! Thanks.

    Hijuyo: Talk to Linus, go back to the pile of leaves and click on them, then simply move your mouse cursor around in a circular motion around the screen, on top of the leaves, to “blow” them away.

    1. I didn’t catch any candy what-so-ever, yet I somehow got heaps of it. It was funny when Charlie Brown kept on getting the rocks, but what I thought was even more hiliarous, was in the pumpkin patch, the pumkin started hovering and the kids’ like, “IT’S THE FREAT PUMPKIN!!!!!” Then, it just turns out to be Snoopy. LOL!!!!

  6. What I did was in the ww1 part I played the ‘Mission Impossible’ theme and at the halloween party I played ‘Thriller’ and and the gummy bear song (I found all these on youtube. Makes the experience even BETTER!

    1. LOL I finished it in one go, and I accidentally skipped some of the ‘safe’ points, like, I skipped the haystack, the little signpost, the grass. 🙂 LOL

  7. Awesome guide. 😮 But for the pin the face on the pumpkin, I got 84% and still passed. xD I got the eye in the same place,YAYY
    You guys are liek..pop masters xD

  8. I was so excited to see this little quest because I am a huge fan of Peanuts!!Oh and thank you for the walk through it was helpful!

    1. I Love moshi monsters! My name for moshimonsters is zailoo27 poptropica:
      lnicoleb. They are terribly addictive.

      1. Hey! Sorry about saying THAT i didnt mean to write it there. oh, you play webkinz, huh? I do:)

  9. HELP! My poptropican started slipping on the desk in Linus’s House , and won’t stop. I can’t do anything, because the it’s still loading!

    Hijuyo: Log out and log back in. Use the PopMatrix to teleport elsewhere if necessary.

  10. Wow… but I can’t seem to get past that last part!! I’ve finished the games but there is no one at the pumpkin patch… did I miss anything? PLZ HELP ME!! I REALLY WANT TO GET THIS DE SO I CAN MOVE O TO ANOTHER ISLANDthx!!

    Hijuyo: After the Halloween party, you should go left of the pumpkin patch so you can trick-or-treat with everyone else. After trick-or-treating, you will be finished with the island quest. 😉

  11. The first time I completed it, it was SERIOUSLY HARD. Then, as I completed it more, it got easier and easier and now it is a piece o cake for me!!!

  12. No…I think for the Pin the Face on the Pumpkin game, you have to get at least 80% accuracy, because I got 82% accuracy and won.

    Hijuyo: Maybe it changed since the time of writing this guide?

  13. When I was rolling the pumpkin at the start of the island, the swinging kids KEEP smashing it. I got so frustrated, I built up enormous speed on the pumpkin and rammed at the kids. To my surprise, I passed them 😀

    I did it again on another account. First time: fail. Second time: succeeded…

  14. on the hiding part where your at the house i got stuck and i did it over and over like 70 times til i got lol thats pretty long

  15. I love Charlie Brown. My teacher showed us all the films. This one was awesome, with Charlie Brown cutting holes all over his costume and then getting a rock. I wish we could see more of Woodstock in this island, though. Otherwise, its my favorite.

  16. WAA! I stood on Linus’ desk, intent on giving him the sucker. Instead, I am continuously falling onto the desk, and I can’t stop. I will not download PopTransport, and I don’t want to lose my progress.

    Slanted Fish: PopTransport can be used without download. If you’re stuck (in a continual loop you can’t get out of), this is probably the best option.

  17. moshi_happy I ❤ moshi monsters and poptropica. They are so addictive

      1. I love moshi monsters and poptropica so much once I spent 24 hours with just one break playing them. If any of you what to friend me my usermame is acanel for moshi monsters it`s audreycanel.

  18. Poptropica creators should create a scary island, and not like ghost story island more like a really scary island. :O That would be epic…

  19. Wow! The piano part took me AGES!!!!!!!! I also am a HUGE fan of IT IS SO FRIGGIN HALPFUAL!!!! 😀 And this IS outdated but, Friendly Star, you and Grey Bear could become friends! If you ever read this could you tell me your username and something about yourself also, if you ever get the chance? :3

  21. Because….Ya know…OK ILL ADMIT IT I BARELY HAVE ANY FRIENDS ON POPTROPICA AND MOST OF THE ONES I DO HAVE ARE COMPLETE STRANGERS TO ME AND YOU HAVE A COOL NAME TOO I THINK so plz add me. I know I sound really desperate at this point so…yeah..*awkward*

  23. I’ve been doing heaps of hard islands and I finished this one really quickly. I’m happy they made this island easy, it is fun to have some hard islands but it is also good to have a few easy ones. But I was hoping that we could see great pumpkin!!

  24. SUPER EASY ISLAND!!!!!!!!! I would put it 3rd easiest island. Early poptropica then shark tooth before it. but you don’t need to get a different lolly each time when you go trick or treating cuz I accidently didn’t and I still got the bag of candy.

    1. lol that happens to me sometimes as well Ani!! but I usually can still move. It is hard to know where I am but I can still work it out. But I probably wouldn’t be able to do the rolling part without seeing myself. 😦

  25. Alot of you are having problem in carrying the pumpkin back to Linus & Sally’s house in one piece. Well, let me tell you how:

    1. First, push the pumpkin slowly so it will not break…
    2. If you push the pumpkin fast, it will break in a hole, however if you push it slow it will not.
    3. After that, DON’T push the pumpkin fast again, if you do, your pumpkin will fall down breaking it.
    4. Push it to the right side and there will be a check point. (A flag)
    5. Push it left, but be careful! Rabbits are there, don’t push your pumpkin when the rabbits heads are up. Push it when the rabbits are in the hole. There are 4 rabbits in total.
    6. After that, Push the pumpkin FAST. Why? You will see a log, and if you push it fast, it will go in the log and not get stuck.
    7. You will then see 3 kids swinging, when the kids are swinging back, push the pumpkin VERY FASTLY, so you don’t end up breaking it.
    8. I think that’s it! You will see check points along the way, so even if you do break it, don’t worry it will start over from the check point.

    I hope I helped ❤

  26. Thanks for the help. It took me a while to get past the spotlight part but it turns out i had to hide behind the chimney!

  27. the blowing of leaves into a pile is very hard because when I blow it into a pile it doesn’t goes there

  28. Can’t get through the piano part. I’ve tried it several times (over 20) and I just can’t do it.

  29. Can’t get past the spotlight part. It won’t give me enough time to get onto the post and run across the house to get to the chimney. So stressful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  30. Help! My shock wave keeps crashing when I start drawing on Charlie Brown’s head for the Jack-o-lantern. What should I do?

  31. Every time i try to get candy i get stuck in the wall. is it me who is saying, ‘i was undefined’ or was it someone else

What's popping, Poptropicans?
