Pumpkins: Great?

If you haven't had a chance to see the classic TV special that inspired Great Pumpkin Island, now's your chance! "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" will be shown on television tonight and tomorrow. Check your local listings!

And while you wait for the Great Pumpkin to show up on Halloween night, don't forget that Great Pumpkin Island is still free to play for everyone. It'll make a great game at your neighborhood Halloween Party.

New in the Poptropica store: Spooktacular gum

Just in time for Halloween, you can get a spooky new type of chewing gum in the Poptropica Store.


When the spooktacular gum pops, a group of wailing ghouls flies away. Take some into any common room and see if you can scare the daylights out of other Poptropicans, like I did to this precious princess here:


Who needs a costume? Not me!

Did you see it?

There are rumors that a new Poptropica Island was announced on the Poptropica homepage last week, only to disappear. Like some kind of mythical beast vanishing into the fog, it was there one minute, and gone the next.

Eyewitness accounts can be unreliable. Scientists have yet to prove the existence of the next Poptropica Island. The whole thing could be a hoax.

Did you see it? Was it real? Was the next Poptropica Island truly revealed?

The truth is out there.

Castle crashers

Great Pumpkin Island has been out for a week already! Hopefully, that means you've had a chance to play it. If not, what the heck are you waiting for?

But if so, you're probably already looking forward to the next Island. So are we. Soon, we'll share a lot more information about the next Poptropica adventure. For now... here's another sneak peek!

Not exactly a castle in the clouds. More like a castle in the fog.

You do need a good chicken alarm now and then.

Halloween is coming!

With Great Pumpkin Island now available for Poptropica Members (and coming for everybody on October 14), Halloween is on a lot of people's minds. Well, why not visit the Poptropica Store to put a Halloween costume on your Poptropican, too? This one's my favorite:

Since "Great Pumpkin" is already taken, we'll call this one a very good pumpkin.

What's your favorite Halloween costume for your Poptropican to wear?
