Community Creations: November 2020


Hello once again everyone! Spotted Dragon here bringing you the November recap for Community Creations! November’s theme was Pirates (and the featured work is not in any particular order). Be sure to check out all the featured artists!

No clue what’s going on? Go see our intro post.

Top 5 Picks

Skullduggery Island by MissEligon

Ahoy, Poptropicans! Right away, the energy in this submission is fantastic. The ships on either side of Captain Crawfish center him quite well, and the swinging rope shows a strong sense of movement. The colors and line work are beautiful, and I love the energy coming from all (but one?) of the characters. Excellent composition! Find her Twitter here.

The High Seas of Skullduggery by birdie-bea

Ooooh, quite the dramatic lighting in this piece! The deep shadows are lovely, especially when paired with that red glow from the ship and the light casting from the moon. I like that the juxtaposition of the vessels is really the star of the show here, instead of a specific character, because what’s a pirate’s life without a ship to captain? I’m taken back to my early days on Skullduggery, sailing that measly little raft for what felt like years against the grand Sea Chicken. Find his DeviantArt here.

It’s a Pirate’s Life for Me by Lucky Joker

Avast! What a mighty crew we have here! Aside from a captain’s ship, a captain’s trusty crew is also a major part of a pirate’s life. Without these fine fellas, I don’t think the Phoenix Warbird would be as mighty. But anyway, I love the proud, sturdy stances of the characters and the distinct, line-focused coloring style. Makes for a strong lineup! Find his DeviantArt here.

Pirate Confrontation by Midnightoilstudios

Yikes! Looks like we have a stand off! More than anything, the diagonal composition is quite nice. Such a line creates a strong sense of movement or energy, perfect for this battle scene. Yet these pointy lines reinforced by the sword and wooden post are well balanced by soft, ephemeral colors. I also like the simultaneous contrast (like in their color schemes) and unity (like in the detail of skulls) between the characters. Wonderful work! Find her DeviantArt here.

Busch Borrower: Pirate of the Forest by Sporty Boa

Ah, now here’s a unique a formidable foe of a pirate! If you recall the PHB’s Heroes & Villains themed Halloween Costume Contest this year, then you just might recognize this woodland adversary. Though not exactly a pirate of the seas, there are plenty of other characters who can live up to the title of pirate! The flat color blocking is quite sharp, and the green color scheme works perfectly with the characters. And those eyes are giving me chills! Aw, but just look at that bird. Find him on Discord and his posts here on the PHB.

Honorable Mentions

Be sure to also read Magic Lizard’s I Sail the High Seas… on a Pile of Driftwood story! Here’s a short excerpt:

In case you’re a little out of the loop, I work for an adventure group called Poptropica. The majority of my adventures involve time travel, by which I am capable of with a small, bronze pocket watch; and all of them include my large, state-of-the-art yellow blimp with the word “Poptropica” inscribed all across. So everyone knew who I was with as soon as I landed (crashed.) Which isn’t always the best strategy… READ MORE

What a wonderful array of pirates we got this month! Arrrren’t you happy with this theme’s results? I know I am!

December: How Do I Participate?

Community Creations is a cool series for anyone in the Poptropica community to join in on. To sum up what it’s about, it’s basically a chance to show off your artwork, creepy fan-fics, Pop clubhouses, costumes, and anything else that pops into your mind.

If we really like the piece you submit, we will feature it here on the PHB! As long as it relates to that month’s theme. So what is December’s theme? December’s theme is…

Fire & Ice!

With the holiday season approaching, half of the world will soon be in the midst of cold winter weather, while the other half enters into a hot summer. So why not celebrate best of both worlds this month? The icey side of our theme is perfect for any winter wonderland type creations, which I’m sure many of you were already planning on making in December!

From the fire and ice planets of Astro-Knights Island, to the hot summer and cold winter of Wimpy Boardwalk Island and Wimpy Wonderland Island, these contrasting concepts of fire and ice pop up all over Poptropica! So, it’s up to you to pick one or the other (or both!) and get creating!

“Fire & Ice” by Quick Fang (CC Dec 2019: Opposites)
  • Comment below with a link to whatever you’ve created OR share it with me (SydVC aka Spotted Dragon) on DeviantArtTwitter, or Discord.
  • Results: I will feature 5 of the submissions as well as some honorable mentions.
  • Limitations: Nothing NSFW, and make sure you relate to the theme.
  • Due Date: I will take any entries before the end of this month. Submit as many things as you’d like!

I will be sure to let you know I have seen your creation. While quality counts, I’m mainly looking for something to simply catch my eye, so don’t be afraid to join in!

So what are you waiting for? Go make something awesome!

Tweet! Tweet!

Hey guys. Sorry I haven’t been around for a while, but I’ve been really busy with exams and such. Trust me, when you get into high school, not to mention the grade I’m in, your workload gets insane. I’m talking REALLY insane. I have 5 hours of homework each night plus studying. Ouch.

Anyway, new PCB post. Here it is:

Tweet Ride!

One of my minions sent me these snapshots from his vacation on Skullduggery Island. I can’t tell what it is. A ship? A bird of prey? Whatever it is, it looks enormous!

This is obviously a shot from Skullduggery Island. It looks like a game in which we have to assemble the pieces. I’m guessing it’s some sort of pirate schooner with a bird (eagle? hawk? perhaps even a dragon, because of the claws and eye) as a mascot.

The image name is “Tweet Ride.” It sure is sweet, or “tweet.” The “ride” part makes me certain it’s a ship, along with the shot of the sail. Very interesting. Perhaps we have to  assemble the pieces in order to gain access to the ship. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see….

*Tweet!* Did you know? The PHB is affiliated with Poptropica Help Tweets, our Twitter page which you can always come back to check at: For the birds. 😀

Arr you looking out for more Skullduggery stuff? If you become a member from now until May 17th, you’ll receive two exclusive members-only gold cards when you log in: the Skullduggery Teaser Trailer and Skullduggery Pirate costume. And for those of you wise enough not to blow your money on that, click here for a ScreenToaster video of the teaser trailer, filmed from Green Boa‘s computer. The tune to this is called “Drunken Sailor.”

Anyway, have a good life.

OK, I’m bored. 😐 It’s not a crime.

This island sounds to me like we’ll be…trading…pirates. :O BRAIN-BLAST!!! We’ll be trading pirates! I’m such a genius. I always told my mom I wasn’t an idiot… =D The Creators showed us a sneak peek of this island, via their Facebook update:

Well, that concludes this post. Always remember:

Froot Loop Pirates have landed!

After many weeks those Pirates that Codien saw have landed. They have crashed on a giant pointy rock, and are roaming Poptropica right now.

Yesterday, PCB announced that they had released a Pirate Adventure Advertisement, Just for 6 – 8. Just for 6-8!Doesn’t Poptropica know that there are people older then 8 that are playing.  So the only way to do the advertisement (If your Poptropican is older then 8) is to make a new player , and set the age betwen 6-8.goldenkey

The new advertisement, based around Pirates, is advertising Froot Loops newest fruity treasure, ‘Frooty Golden Bars!’ The Froot Loop Treasure Chest Building can be found on Spy Island, 24 Carrot island, and Early Poptropica Island , and can only be accessed via a golden key.
This golden key has been broken up and given out to 3 Pirates. These Pirates are hidden around Poptropica and will only give you the key after you complete a game.
The 3 games are ‘Rebuild the Map’, ‘Pirate Labyrinth’, and ‘Pirate Target Practice’. Each one is easy yet challenging.

After all three pieces of the key are handed to you, you will then get access to the Froot Loop Building. Inside is Toucan Sam and his gang, all the games you played to get the key , a advertisement movie about the froot loop gang finding the golden bars, and a special prize thats goldeny. 😀

NOTE:To do the advertisement or find the pirates your Poptropican must be between the ages of 6 – 8. Which means if you seem to not be able to find the pirates then its because your age is to high. Create a new player with the right age and do the mission.


The Pirate locations are:

flpspylocationThis pirate can be found on the roof of the Headquaters in Spy Island.
To win a piece of the key “ye must prove your worth at the target range” in the game Pirate Target Practice’. You use your mouse to control the cannon, you can hold down to extend how far the cannon fires.
Your aim is to get all the Froot Loops, PLUS the new Golden Bar,  and get as many points as possible. Remember
shooting the images of Black Beak will cause you to loose 25 points.


This pirate can be found on the roof of the Pop Art Museum building which can be accessed via the blimp rope in Early Poptropica Island.
To win the piece of key “ye must put back together thee map” in the game ‘Rebuild the Map’.
Your aim is to put the map back together like a puzzle.


This pirate can be found on the roof of ‘Charlies’s Surplus Co.’ building which can be accessed via the gas pumps in 24 Carrot Island.
To win the piece of key “ye must finish thee maze in time” in the game ‘Pirate Labyrinth’. You use your mouse to move the golden bar piece around.
Your aim is to reach the end in time. You can extend the time by getting froot loops. Remember hitting the images of Black Beak will take off 5 seconds.


If you want to see the PHB Sneak Peaks on this advertisement. Then go to:

See. PHB Sneak Peaks are real!

PHB Sneak Peaks: Land Ahoy, Yogo Bucks

February 1st, 2009 #2



Welcome to the new posts of Poptropica Help Blog Sneak Peaks, that are posted every week on Sundays. On these new posts there will be stories that only we have. And only we post them. These stories are classified and are very secret.
This week we have two articles for us to share; ‘Land Ahoy’ this is an article on the Pirate Advertisement coming out in the near future, and ‘Yogos Bucks’ is another advertisement that will be coming out next week.

-Land Ahoy-
No, Once again they haven’t landed yet…Or have they?

On January 31st, After Codien’s trekking adventure in the jungle led to a mystery involving Pirates, Codien hadn’t been able to sleep. Visions of a pirate ship, slowly drifting from a thick haze, silently landing on the sand kept him awake. The 3 pirates from the photo kept appearing in his dream, running at him with swords in hand.
Codien had had enough. He decided to trek through the jungle to the point where he found the picture to see if he could uncover, or rather find nothing to do with the pirates. After 2 hours of searching he didn’t find anything. No photos, no jewels, not even a gold tooth. There was nothing there. Feeling tired Codien decided to walk back home. It was half way through the jungle when he realised he had gone the wrong way. He was lost. Codien started to get worried. Images of the 3 pirates kept flashing in front of his eyes. In panic he turned on his heel and ran as fast as he could in one direction, Never stopping for a breath. He only slowed down when the familiar sound of the waves crashing on the beach was present. He ran through the last lines of trees when he came crashing down onto the sand. He sighed a long exhausting breath. He felt safe here.

After what seemed hours Codien looked up past the suns blazing rays and out to the water. A rush of panic filled him; he half expected a pirate ship to be looming on the horizon. But there was none. He chuckled to himself.
Crack! The sound of a tree branch broke behind him. isthatapirate
He turned in shock to see a strange man, covered in old red clothing, and a sword on the belt, standing on a rock. Before he could blink the man was gone.

Still gasping for breath, Codien couldn’t tell if what he saw was real.

Was that a real pirate standing on the rock?

This whole Pirate mystery was just too much for Codien to handle.
He decided that the best thing to do was to go see the ‘Shark Tooth’ Islands Medicine Man; and see if he could make a potion that would make him forget the pirates.
Lets just hope he doesn’t have to find another secret ingredient.

What’s the story about?
The story is about the new costume we will be getting in the new advertisement/mission.divinggame1
This pirate costume, along with two others, will be obtainable when the Froot Loops: Fruity Golden Bars mission is released. 
This Froot Loops mission will be similar to the old Froot Loops mission (which can be viewed here), where you will have to help Toucan Sam in a diving game. Except in this diving game you will get a Gold Diving suit. The Froot Loops Diving Suit, one of the prizes, is a clothing item you can wear, and you automatically blow some bubbles every few seconds when you wear it. Of course the best thing about this mission is that there will be those 3 new Pirate costumes. 😀
This mission will be released next week or maybe 3 weeks from now.

Thank-You Graham for your excellent knowledge on Froot Loops.


-Yogos Bucks-
Do you want to win some cash?


Last week as Codien was doing his usually shopping on Early Poptropica Island he ran into a strange man and women with funny hats. They were dancing and laughing, jumping and singing. They seemed to be having crazy fun!
How could Codien resist. He had to join them in their dancing and singing. After only a few minutes the song was already in his head:

“Hey Kids! Do you want to have some fun? Have some fun with me.
Grab a pack and eat them up, and prance around with glee.
You can eat, dance, and play. And win some cash with Yogos.
If you want food, and want to win some cash.
 Well then, Grab the Bucks and Go with Yogos

After dancing and singing, and having so much fun the crazy man decided to give Codien his hat. With a huge grin Codien thanked the man. 
With a sad goodbye, Codien turned on his feet and walked back home with a spring in his step. Singing the song, all the way home.

So first off if you haven’t noticed. For the past week or so there have been ads on the sides of the Poptropica game, advertising Yogos. It was advertising that in specially marked packs of Yogos, you could have a chance to win some money.

So this week or maybe next week Poptropica will bring out the ad in the game (maybe similar to the Wall-E Ad), with Poptropicans dressed in the costumes, featured in the image on the left.

Well I’m from Australia and i have no idea what Yogos are but I’m guessing they’re food.  😛

 If any of you guys didn’t notice but the two products, Froot Loops and Yogos, are both owned by Kelloggs. Which I, have came to the conclusion that…Kelloggs must be advertising on Poptropica. Thought I’d like to point that out. 🙂

So that’s my Sneak Peaks this week. Next week I’ll have sneak peaks on the upcoming island Astro-Knights and a very special Dog.
See you next week.
