Baron witness to firing squid stories πŸ¦‘πŸ”₯

Hey Poptropicans! We’ve got news of a side quest, a Squid Game takeover, Cinder’s punk rock glory, and fan art stories. Let’s fire away!

It seems the Halloween surprise we’ve been waiting for may not be the return of Zomberry Hero, but something completely new and involving the Baron! According to the Pop Creators’ Blog, “The Baron’s headed on an adventure and rumor has it, you’re the prime candidate to come along.” They even shared this stunning Pop portrait of the Baron with Ack, the monkey and first mate! Nice touch with the monkey wrench.

With the Baron here only until the end of Red October, and the mention of the Halloween surprise, it seems likely we’ll get to play this upcoming side quest sometime this month. Plus, unlike Rumpel’s Challenge, the adventure will be available to all players!

Stay tuned for more news of the Baron’s latest tricks and treats. For now, enjoy the Red October skies and all the fun stuff aboard the big airship!


Turns out there are bloodier shenanigans than the Baron on Poptropica, and they involve a much-hyped Netflix show! The Pop Creators have advanced from simple Squid Game memes to recreating its deadly world in the game itself, as seen in their latest TikTok clip:

While Squid Game with its firing squads is not made for children, Poptropicans of all ages can still appreciate this kid-friendly tribute that takes the Gamer Clubhouse to a whole new level with its stacked beds and coffins. As for the prize: how about 45.6 little glowing bunnies?


Speaking of fiery tales, remember Cinder’s iconic transformation from Fairytale Island? Poptropica shared a clip of the punk rock princess on TikTok a couple months ago, and now, it’s available as a YouTube short:


Wrapping up this post is a series of posts shared on Poptropica’s Instagram stories, including an answer box to share about your Halloween ‘fit, as well as tons of fan art. Enjoy!

Remember: Two more weeks until the PHB’s Halloween Costume Contest closes on Friday, October 29! Get your grim grooves and whimsical whooshes going strong, and see you in the next one! πŸ‘»πŸŽƒ

πŸ“Ί Pop YouTubers: making art, rapping smart πŸŽ¨πŸŽ€

Hey Poptropicans, we’re back with another spotlight on YouTubers fuelling their creativity with Poptropica!

This first video comes from an artist called roseshards, who typically posts animations and paintings of cats on her channel. Here, however, Rose takes on a challenge to make good art using the easel on Counterfeit Island. Can it be done on this limited drawing feature? Watch her struggles and successes:

With just a computer mouse (for the most part) and no undo button, this talented artist was able to turn out a pretty spectacular painting, wouldn’t you say? If you’d like to try out this easel for yourself, check out our post on the situation with classic islands to find your way to Counterfeit Island.


Onto a different art form, a little-known rapper going by the name Yung Boy recently dropped a track called “Garrett” and dedicated it to Poptropica. This rap follows a guy named Garrett, who finds himself on 24 Carrot Island, explores a bit, then moves on to Mythology Island. Check it out:

This Poptropica rap seems to be the first of its kind, and it was pretty slick, right? The gameplay captured in the video goes great with the beat, and the seemingly simplistic lyrics flow well. Sure would be cool to see more of these!

That’s all for this post. Hope you enjoyed these creative videos! And if you’re inspired to make some Poptropica fan art of your own, check out the PHB’s Community Creations. Keep on rocking, Poptropicans! 🀘

PHB Sunday Special: Poptropica Doodle!

It’s tiiiime for another PHB special! You may have seen my Poptropican in the header or sidebar, but have you seen her doodled? ‘Cause I’ve got a speed drawing video of exactly that right here…

I started out with a rough sketch, traced it in black, and under that layer I colored it in – all that took about 50 minutes, but it’s been condensed into less than 3 for the video. Digital artwork was done by me on Sketchbook Express using a pen tablet. Also, if you’re interested, the PHB has a guide called How to Draw a Poptropican under the Cool Stuff tab.

For more Poptropica videos, please check out the PHB’s YouTube channel, the PHV (Poptropica Help Videos)! The user is MyPoptropicaHelp.

Well, I hope you enjoyed the video! πŸ™‚
