Pies, Rants, and 2nd Rate

?-Hello, my friends. Unfortunally, EL7 was the last of the ELs and was eaten by a large group of sharks with black eyes and chicken pox. However, I can take over this post and many more to come.

Director D-WHHHHYYY!!!??

?-What is wrong, little one?

DD-I lost the elections! Even after my patriotic speech on how Medusa was 2nd worst!

Why you should vote for me, Director D.

Hello, Poptropicans. It has come to my attention that I am currently lagging in the polls behind Medusa.

Medusa!

Elections such as these are about issues, and no issue is more important than a candidate’s appearance. I ask you to consider my perfectly coiffed salt-and-pepper hair, and then look at the hideous mess of wriggling snakes that Medusa calls a hairdo. Or, rather, don’t look at it, because you will immediately turn to stone. That’s the kind of villain she is. I, on the other hand, only want what’s best for you: a sleek, aerodynamic cranial appearance.

I mean, honestly, Medusa? She’s not even the main villain on Mythology Island. Zeus is! Medusa is a miniboss at best. I don’t even think she’s qualified to participate in this election. Until we see her longform boss certificate, we should consider her an illegitimate candidate.

You have one day left to vote in this round. Vote Director D. for best Poptropica villain!

?-Would you like a candy?
DD-OK! NOMNOMNOMNOM…..nomnomnomnomnomnomnom…..nnnnnnnnnnnnooooooooooommmmmmmm…zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

DD-Where am I?
?-Hello, Director Donaldious. I would like to play a game.
DD-What game do want to play?
?-Poptropica.
DD-But I am in Poptropica.
?-Exactly. I can control you at any point. I know your password and username. I can put you in stainless steel straps. I can put you in lonely chambers. ♪ I can show you the world! Shining, shimering, splended! ♪
P.S. There is also a new ad on main street. Survive the pies, or face falling text boxes. Bugs Bunny or Narrators. Live or Die. Make your choice.

Santa’s Sharks

PHB Header
Poptropica Help Blog staff member Coderkid worked hard to create a colorful Shark Tooth header for us to enjoy! You can view it at the top of every page at the PHB. Also, be looking forward to an upcoming Christmas header from graphics designer Codien!

New Store Stuff!
Shark Boy from the Poptropica Creators’ Blog changed his avatar in honor of one of the two new costumes to arrive at the Poptropica Store – the Tiger Shark! (Notice the amazing dead fish!) For girls, you can also pick up a Swan Ballerina outfit. Thanks to Xarr for this update.

Tiger Shark – Basically looks like the shark costume from the Shark Museum at Shark Tooth Island. But with this costume, there comes a twist where the boring gray color of the typical shark becomes a thrilling striped orange. You can also Customize the awesome fishy and toss it in the air by pressing the space bar!

Swan Ballerina – The title says it all! It’s a pretty dancing ballerina costume mixed with a taste of swan. Isn’t it beautiful? 😛

Santa Buddies Ad
For younger children (6 to 11 years old), a nice Christmas adventure awaits you at the Disney Santa Buddies advertisement building! You can find it on Main Street of most islands. Thanks goes to Incredible Fish for the update.

Once inside the building, go to the right side to be briefed by the white instructor dog, Santa Paws, about what to do. The goal is to get all five brown reindogs in time to deliver Santa’s presents so everyone can have a very merry Christmas season! xD

You have sixty seconds to round up all 5 dogs. To the right side of the Santa Paws is a snowy landscape, and if you explore the area, you should be able to touch 3 of the dogs. The other 2 dogs are hidden back inside the advertisement building, on the higher platforms. When the time is up and you have succeeded in your mission, you will watch a little cutscene where you get to drop gifts down the chimneys!

After the cutscene, you will be presented with two prizes – a green elf costume with antlers and a surprise box. The elf costume is similar to last year’s, except that there is no nose attached to the antlers and the pants are yellow.

The surprise box can be used (by clicking on the ”Use” button on its item card) to spray gift boxes all over the place, then having them magically clear up. YAY BOXES!! :mrgreen:

PHB Sneak Peaks: The Little Wooden Boy

March 8th, 2009 #7

[-!CLASSIFIED!-]


-Poptropica Help Blog Sneak Peaks-

Welcome to another wonderful week of ‘Poptropica Help Blog Sneak Peaks’. These posts are posted every week on Sundays. In every new post there will be stories that only we have. And only we post them. These stories are classified and are very secret.
This week’s story is ”The Little Wooden Boy”, It is about a puppet that wants to become a boy.

-The Little Wooden Boy-
I’m not a puppet, I’m a real boy.

Geppetto, a poor old wood carver, was making a puppet from a tree branch. “You shall be my little

boy,” he said to the puppet, “and I shall call you ‘Pinocchio’.” He worked for hours, carefully carving each detail. When he reached the mouth, the puppet started making faces at Geppetto. “Stop that, you naughty boy,” Geppetto scolded, “Stop that at once !” “I won’t stop !” cried Pinocchio.
“You can talk !” exclaimed Geppetto.

“Of course I can, silly,” said the puppet. “You’ve given me a mouth to talk with.” Pinocchio rose to his feet and danced on the table top. “Look what I can do !” he squealed.

“Pinocchio, this is not the time to dance,” Geppetto explained. “You must get a good night’s rest. Tomorrow you will start going to school with the real boys. You will learn many things, including how to behave.”

On his way to school the next morning, Pinocchio stopped to see a puppet show. “I can dance and sing better than those puppets and I don’t need strings,” boasted Pinocchio. He climbed onto the stage.

“Get off my stage,” roared the Puppet Master. Then he noticed how much the crowd liked Pinocchio. He did not say anything and let Pinocchio stay. “Here, you’ve earned five copper coins,” the Puppet Master told Pinocchio.

"Every time you tell a lie, your nose will grow. When you tell the truth, it will shrink."
"Every time you tell a lie, your nose will grow. When you tell the truth, it will shrink."

“Take these coins and go straight home,” said the Puppet Master. Pinocchio put the coins into his sack.

He did not go very far before he met a lame Fox and a blind Cat. Knowing that Pinocchio had money, they pretended to be his friends. “Come with us. We’ll teach you how to turn those copper pieces into gold,” coaxed the sneaky Cat.

“We want to help you get rich. Plant your coins under this magic tree. In a few hours they’ll turn to gold,” said the Fox.

“Show me where,” said Pinocchio excitedly. The Cat and Fox pointed to a patch of loose dirt. Pinocchio dug a hole and put the sack in it, marking the spot with a stone.

“Splendid !” exclaimed the Cat. “Now let’s go to the inn for supper.” After supper, the Fox and Cat, who weren’t really lame or blind, quickly snuck away and disguised themselves as thieves. They hid by the tree waiting for Pinocchio to come back and dig up the money. After Pinocchio dug up the coins they pounced on him.

“Give us your money!” they ordered. But Pinocchio held the sack between his teeth and resisted to give the sack to them. Again they demanded, “Give us your money !”

Pinocchio’s Guardian Fairy, who was dressed all in blue and had blue hair, sent her dog, Rufus, to chase the Fox and Cat away. She ordered Rufus to bring Pinocchio back to her castle. “Please sit down,” she told Pinocchio. Rufus kept one eye open to watch what was going on.

“Why didn’t you go to school today?” she asked Pinocchio in a sweet voice.

“I did,” answered Pinocchio. Just then, his nose shot out like a tree branch. “What’s happening to my nose?” he cried.

“Every time you tell a lie, your nose will grow. When you tell the truth, it will shrink,” said the Blue Fairy.

“Pinocchio, you can only become a real boy if you learn how to be brave, honest and generous.”

The Blue Fairy told Pinocchio to go home and not to stop for any reason. Pinocchio tried to remember what the Blue Fairy told him…

Its full of clasic children stories thay everyone will love.

 

Ahhh. You have to love classic children stories. And you’re going to love this even more when it comes to Poptropica.

Yes this lovable wooden puppet will be in an advertisement in Poptropica coming out in a month or two called (i’m guessing) Walt Disney’s Pinocchio.

You will be able to get the fairy godmother and the Pinocchio costume.

 

So that’s my Sneak Peaks this week. Next week will be a surprise. Maybe something that it is a little bit mummy like or something that is a little bit sneaky. See you next week.

Disneys’ Lucky Socks

Poptropica have released some more secret Disneys advertisements that even i didn’t know they were made, and Vlad the Viking has met up with another poptropican in Snapshot sagas.


Snapshot Sagas: Lucky Socks

On Monday, Vlad the Viking posted another saga on travelling the islands and meeting with poptropicans. This time he had a strange voyage to a new island, where he met with Lucky Socks in Party Time Tower, on Time Tangled Island. Lucky Socks sure was ‘Lucky‘. This is his story:

After a wonderful breakfast of crispy bacon and fluffy pancakes in early poptropica, I set sail in an 8-bit schooner that left harbor early that morning.

The sea was calm, and the sky was clear. This trip was turning out very differently from the perilous voyage I took from Shark Tooth Island on my makeshift raft.

The weather soon changed, however, while I was relaxing in a hammock tied between the masts. A bright light flashed across the sky, nearly blinding me. As the spots in my vision faded I beheld a grand vortex of swirling color where the clouds had once been. I felt myself being pulled up to the vortex.

Crazy visions swirled past me as I flew through the void. I could see far off places like the Great Wall of China, the earthen structures from the Mali Empire, and even a band of my viking brothers stranded on a deserted island in a stormy sea! Many windows into different lands and times all flowed past me as I approached another bright light. I thought I had reached my end.

There was a flash of light, and I found myself in the middle of a street. I sat up, rubbing my bruised beard and checked my camera. Luckily it still worked! I jumped up and looked around to see where I was. A nearby building towered over my head. It was the Party Time Tower! I was sure I would find some Poptropicans to photograph inside, and I was right! Lucky Socks was having fun running around and playing games.

Keep your eyes peeled for me when you travel through Poptropica! You never know where I will end up next! (And for that matter, neither do I!)

Disney Advertisement
Poptropica have released its second Disney Advertisement. This time featuring Phineas and Ferb, and Wizards of Waverly Place.
You can find the advertisement on Early Poptropica, Shark Tooth, Time Tangled, and Nabooti Island. On all the other islands you can still find ‘Disney Space Buddies‘.

disneyad

Inside the building there is 2 Quiz games based on the two shows. There is also 2 costumes, Phineas from ‘Phineas and Ferb’, and Alex Russo from ‘Wizards of Waverly Place’. I know what you’re thinking. “What about Ferb?” Hopefully they make a costume for him because he’s really cool. 😛
If they do release him please inform us via comment.

Also poptropica has made many new items as informed by Katie. These items include new vests,  new shirts and also new pants for the ladies! There is also a new pink tie.
I havn’t seen any of the new clothing from Poptropica but it seems like they are good.

NOTE:
If you found your name hasn’t been credited today, thats because you did not listen to Scary Tomato. Everyone please look at the previous comments to make sure no one has said it. It gets really annoying for us and for you when you have a pile of comments saying “Oh, Oh, THE NEW POPTROPICA THING ON THE CREATORS BLOGY IS OUTS!!!! PLZ CreDIt MEZ!”
Please stop it!
