Spotted: Dr. Hare in despair

Hello, Poptropicans in the know!

Looks like Dr. Hare has had a rough night, as he was seen earlier today on the Poptropica Creators’ Instagram story keeled over, while fellow Poptropica elites Shark Boy and Sir Cador stared straight on with indifference. Nearby blimps surrounded them, ready to give a lift to the hospital.

What’s the problem, doc? Couldn’t get enough carrots to supply your next evil plot? Lost the ability to toy with victims? The Creator who snapped this story certainly doesn’t think he’s up for whatever he’s up to.

Y’know, we’re not entirely sure why we’re still gossiping about this has-been villain who is fast falling into irrelevance considering his last stunt happened more than a year ago, but here we are.

Speaking of relevance, did you hear that Poptropica’s getting a new island? Looks like cheetahs are in, and hares have been beaten out of the race!

xoxo,

— the PHB 😘

There Can Be Only One Winner…

Ha! Bet you thought I was talking about Poptropolis Games, huh?

😀

Well, I’m not. You see, humans tend to have self-centered thoughts at times. This is no exception for Shark Boy. For example, if someone were to declare him “Best Shark”…

Well, I bet he’s thrilled. He made a whole post about it, just to get the point across. According to Shark Boy, “I’d like to thank the little people.”

Did anyone happen to notice that Shark Boy is, ah, smiling? Yes, smiling! Well, anyone would be smiling if they won a contest. Do you think Shark Boy is the best shark, or do you think there’s a better shark in town, uh, Poptropica?

And, if you are having trouble with Poptropolis Games, and you fear that the one winner can’t be you, remember to check out our Island Help. There, you can find the Poptropolis Games Guide (or click HERE) written by PHB author Icy Comet and you can be the one and only champion! Just keep in mind that there’s no tribe like Pathfinders. 😉

Both the Creators’ Blog and the Poptropica Help Blog have received a few updates. Let’s start with the Creators’ ones:

The one and only
After a Poptropica Creator finishes their post, it usually ends with, for example, “Posted by Shark Boy at 2:36 PM”. This has now changed to (using the same example): “The one and only Shark Boy at 2:36 PM”. Cool! 🙂

Love it, Like it, Not interested
You can now vote about your reaction of each and every Poptropica Creators’ Blog post! Under where it says, “The one and only…” (details above), there’s a line where it says, “Reactions:”. Next to it are 3 options, each with a box beside it: Love it, Like it, Not interested. Click on the box beside it to vote that option! Currently, you can vote for as many as you want (you can even vote all 3). If you want to take back your vote, simply click on the box again! There is also a number in parentheses beside each option, which shows how many people had voted for that option. 😛

Zazzle Widget
On the side of the Creators’ Blog is their new Zazzle widget! This currently displays some of the T-shirts they are selling, and at the top, written in white with a blue background, are the words, “Poptropica T-shirts and More!” There is also a bright star next to it, and there’s one for the “Blog Archives” section too. It looks a lot nicer that way! 😀

Now for the PHB’s updates!

600,000
Believe it or not, we have already reached 600,000+ hits! Less than a month ago, we’d reached 500,000. Amazing! I’m finding it pretty hard to believe myself, but it really is true! 😯 Check out this post for the 500,000 milestone news: https://poptropica.wordpress.com/2009/02/17/our-first-half-million-jeff-kinney-and-shining-crystals/.

PHB Sneak Peaks: Pirates Have Landed

[-CLASSIFIED-]
[POPTROPICA HELP BLOG ONLY!]

Welcome to the new posts of Poptropica Help Blog Sneak Peaks. On these new posts there will be Sneak Peaks that only we have. And only we post them. These sneak peaks are classified and are very secret.
So to kick off PHB Sneak Peaks we would like to present our first: “Pirates Have Landed.”

-Pirates Have Landed-
I’m only joking pirates haven’t landed on Poptropica…Yet.

On January 26,  Codien was slowly having a nice walk through the jungles of Shark Tooth Island. The sun was high in the air and its rays were pouring through the leaves burning his skin.  He’d been out for ages in the jungle searching for old treasures. Finding old pots, Artifacts and sculptures from lost Poptropicans of the past.  It was near the end of the day and he was about to head home when he found an old photo under a Shark statue. Looking at the old and crumpled photo he realised it was very old. It was only when he looked closer that he discovered something even more amazing:

Old Picture of Pirates

In the picture were three Poptropicans. They were wearing old shabby clothing and carried swords. Codien had never seen such strange clothing. The only thing that they could be were…Pirates.
But how on earth had Pirates gotten to Poptropica and will they ever return?
What do you think?

If your wondering how I found the “Picture”, I actually made it. But the costumes are all real. They were labeled ‘FL Pirate’.

Latest Update –  Fruity Golden Bars
Fruity Golden Bars
We think we know what the pirates are. We have just got information that Froot Loops has a new ad that involves Pirates. This would make sense because of the FL= Froot Loops. This would mean that it would be an advertisement/mission they will be bringing out. Like the Pink Panther 2.
The ad is advertising Froot Loops new cereal ‘Froot Loops: Fruity Golden Bars’. The new ad is called Treasure Island and is about the birds finding Froot Loop treasure. You can play games and find out more information on there site, here.
Thank you Graham for this information.

Well I’ve got some more Sneak Peaks in the future for you guys that only Poptropica Help Blog will get. I will post another Sneak Peak in 3 days.

Tata.

[!FAILED TO SELF DESTRUCT!]

 

 Also, Speedy Speck sure was speedy today and managed to pop 7 balloons in a game of Paint War before Shark Boy did! This was Shark Boy’s story:

I was visiting the Fly-By-Night Airlines and had some great battles against Speedy Speck. We were really close on all of the battle games, but in the end she beat me at Paint War. Thanks Speedy Speck, that was fun!

Keep an eye out for the sneaky Shark Boy – you never know when he may turn up! 😉

Remember to look at all the other posts. There’s heaps of stuff happening all around us!

Nice Bubbles rocks! So does Open Season 2!

Nice work, Nice Bubbles! 😛

Today Nice Bubbles beat Shark Boy in a game of Sky Dive! Thanks to Cheerful Claw for the quick alert. Remember, it’s not a race to inform everyone about it. Anyway, here’s Shark Boy’s testimony, along with the picture:

Today I was totally rocking on Soupwords and was so close to getting a 5 star battle ranking, but then Nice Bubbles showed up! She challenged me to Skydive, and my battle ranking took a major dive. I used the crying emote a lot 😦

(If you’d like to see it yourself, check it out at: http://blog.poptropica.com/2009/01/shark-boy-attacks-poptropica-and-gets.html.)

On the left side of the picture it shows Shark Boy at the Coconut Cafe (possibly his favorite multiplayer room to hang out) and his battle ranking (4 stars). We now know that his name on Poptropica is “Shark Boy”! This makes it quite likely that Vlad’s could be “Vlad the Viking”, or just “Vlad”, maybe even “Viking.” In the middle, Shark Boy shows off his score of 70 on Soupwords, but it’s cropped so we can’t see his opponent. And on the right we have him losing against a girl, Nice Bubbles. 😛

Next on the news we’ve got: Open Season 2 advertisement! Thanks to Mitchell Brett for this update!

You can find this advertisement building on the far right side of Main Street of any island. You may remember Codien’s special sneak peek of a bear hat some time ago, on another post. Well, this is it – the “bear hat” advertisement! Open Season 2 is a movie, by the way. Here’s a picture I took of the outside (there’s a lot more inside though!):

Now for the grand tour… well, a little tour. 😛

Middle right:  Information and pictures of the Open Season 2 video cases
Top center: Open Season 2 animal costumes (includes: bear hat, bear suit, mule deer hat, mule deer suit)

In the movie, the bear’s name is Boog and the mule deer is Elliot. 😉

Also, Poptropica Help Blog is at around 355,000 hits now! Keep them comin’! 😀

Go Tough Skull!

Congratulations, Tough Skull!

“We can’t all be winners,” says Shark Boy, one of Poptropica’s Creators. Today he logged onto Poptropica to play Star Link against Tough Skull, but Tough Skull, living up to his/her name, was tough and wouldn’t let Shark Boy win. Thanks Kaliki for the information about this new post. Shark Boy says:

Every once in a while we like to hop on Poptropica and play against some of you! Sadly, today wasn’t my day…Tough Skull totally trashed me on Star Link. Nice one Tough Skull.

That picture above was included in Shark Boy’s post.  If you want to read more about it, here’s the link:
http://blog.poptropica.com/2009/01/we-all-cant-be-winners.html

Sadly, Star Link doesn’t show the player’s names so we don’t know what Shark Boy’s name on Poptropica was. However, if you see Tough Skull wandering around Poptropica, be sure to congratulate him/her somehow (maybe by challenging him/her to another game of Star Link?)! 😛

Oh, and you better practice your Star Link skills, as well as all the other multiplayer games! You never know when a Creator might challenge you next! 😆
