From today until December 31, we’ve hidden one Island Hopper Ticket in every common room on Poptropica. Each ticket that you collect counts as one entry into the sweepstakes. There are over 40 tickets to find, which means you have over 40 chances to win!

Click here to go to the rules page for this event. Sadly, you have to live in the US to enter.

20 runner-ups will receive a Poptropica Blimp Toy, as well as a 1-month Poptropica Membership. 10 2nd-place winners will receive a 6-month Membership. Finally, the grand-prize winner will get to meet Jeff Kinney in a 30 minute long video call, receive a Poptropica Blimp Toy, AND get a 6-month Membership.

In addition to this, there is also a weekly sweepstakes, where 5 winners will be chosen every week to receive a 1-month Membership.

Remember to read the Official Rules for more details because it ends on December 31! All winners are chosen at random.

TIME for Upcoming Episodes!

episodes

Hey guys! Quick Adventure Time update. I know the episodes haven’t been that consistent lately, but I can’t really control that, so… XD Anyway, new ones are coming soon!

episode everythings jake

Everything’s Jake, the next episode will come out on November 24 (next Monday). The synopsis is “Jake finds himself transported to an alien, yet familiar, world.” Could this possibly Mars? Or.. something to do with Finn’s dad?

episode is that you

The episode after that is entitled Is That You? and will air on November 25 (next Tuesday). The synopsis is “Following Prismo’s memorial service, Jake begins acting strangely.” DUDE! The feels are gonna be strong in this one… Looking at the title card, it might have something to do with pickles.

*No title card is available*

Next is Jake the Brick, which will come on on November 26 (next Wednesday). The synopsis is “Jake wants to fulfill a bizarre lifelong ambition.” Could this be related to Prismo as well?

*No title card is available*

After that is Dentist, on November 28 (next Friday). The synopsis is “When Finn’s toothache gets too much to take, he has no choice but to visit the dentist.” I don’t really have much to say about this one. 😛

episode evergreen

Then we have Evergreen, but no air date is known for it. However, we do know that the synopsis is “A wizard of ice tries to create a crown that will grant the first wearer’s​ deepest wish in order to stop a deadly comet from wiping out all life on the planet.”

Other upcoming episodes include Astral Plane, The Mountain, and Jermaine. Nothing much is known of these episodes, so we’ll just have to wait.

Anyway, it looks like Cartoon Network is going to have a mini new episodes marathon for Adventure Time. Maybe for Thanksgiving? Well, I hope AT gets back on schedule soon. 🙂

Creatures, Worlds, Comics, & Holidays!

Hey Poptropicans! Quick update with some recent tweets.

First off, the Creators released another piece of Monster Carnival concept art.

I think my favorite is the bottom left. 😛

The Creators also gave us a sneak peek of an upcoming Land feature. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but we will create… A WHOLE NEW WORLD!!! XD

I don’t know about you guys, but this looks amazing to me. Anyone getting a “Spore” vibe? Anyway, this is apparently a “prototype of player’s world management screen for Poptropica Land.” 😀

In other news, we have a Poptropica Comic sneak peek to share!

Hehehe… XD

Before I go… Happy Veterans Day! You may not celebrate the occasion, but it’s still good to just say thank you for those who have protected you. On that note, Poptropica just can’t wait for Thanksgiving!

Hmm… Now I’m craving turkey and corn on the cob… 😛

Adventure Time – Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Did you get to see the AT Balloon on TV? I didn’t… 😛

Well, that’s how to make the balloon. And I did get to see most of the marathon. Did you guys watch any of it? At least there were some pretty awesome pictures taken at the parade!

Finn and Jake have "Adventure Time" at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Debut: Finn and Jake balloon was one of three brand new inflatables in the parade this year. They are the main characters on Cartoon Network's Adventure Time show

And I guess it was good that the weather situation worked out and the balloons even got to fly, right? Okay, if you didn’t get to see the balloon and you desperately want to see it in action, this video was the best I could find. I hope it’s good enough. 🙂

Oh! And that’s not all!

Reined in: The handlers of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid balloon kept the inflatable close to the ground in light of the heavy winds

Yep, you saw right! Jeff Kinney (Creator of Poptropica)’s best selling book, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, had it’s own balloon. Yeah, that’s as close to Poptropica as I could find. 🙂

Whether you saw the parade or not, I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Or, uh, Turkey Day. 😛

Happy Thanksgi- uh… Turkey Day!

Happy Thanksgiving Turkey Day everybody! Now, if your Thanksgiving was terrible, I hope this cheers you up:

We’re thankful for…

As the Poptropica Creators celebrate Thanksgiving today, we wanted to take a moment to thank the most important person in Poptropica: you!

We have a great time making Islands, designing costumes, and building all the features that you can only find on Poptropica. And we’re looking forward to creating even more Poptropica awesomeness in the months and years ahead.

But without someone to play it, Poptropica really wouldn’t be anything at all. We couldn’t do it without you — and we wouldn’t want to. Thank you!

BLACK WIDOW

We here at the ATP feel the same way. Without all our viewers, I probably wouldn’t be posting this right now. I personally would’ve given up on this website a while ago if it didn’t turn out to be awesome. I am SO SO SO thankful that the ATP has so many awesome fans that help encourage and support the authors here. So… Happy Turkey Day everyone!

What did you do over your holiday? I had a great time with my family and finally got to see Hunger Games: Catching Fire! 😀 It was awesome.

P.P.S. Remember! Thanksgiving is a lot like Christmas…
