Blog – Throwback Thursday: Way Back When…

Last Thursday, Megg posted a rather interesting backstory of some Club Penguin events in years past. She mentioned Fluffy the Fish, the Lighthouse telescope, the first Club Penguin Times (then called The Penguin Times), and the Western Party of July 2006. Here is the complete post:

Hi penguins,

If there was a Club Penguin history class in school, I’d have had an A+++. Take a seat because Miss Megg’s class is in now in session!

Fluffy the Fish: In the back of the first Penguin Style catalog there was a picture of Fluffy with the words “HAVE YOU SEEN ME?” Fluffy has since been seen all over the island, most notably on a plaque in the Lighthouse.

The Lighthouse Telescope: Now and then Rockhopper’s ship has been seen through the telescope returning home… even when it’s thieving crabs steering it!

The Club Penguin Times: Issue #1 of the island’s newspaper hit on October 24, 2005. Three days later the first blog entry was made by… not me! It was written by the famous penguin, Happy77.

Western Party: Bet you didn’t know this was a thing! A short-lived cowboy craze in July of 2006 took Club Penguin by storm before disappearing forever. The Dance Club was turned into a barn, complete with hay, pitchforks, barrels, and wagon wheels. It was a different time…

And that’s only SOME of the history on Club Penguin. What would you like to learn about? Let us know in the comments!

CLASS DISMISSED!!!

-Club Penguin Team

There are a few comments I would like to address on this post:

  1. The Lighthouse picture is before the Music Catalog was added.
  2. The Lighthouse Telescope isn’t even updated nowadays because Rockhopper teleports to the island apparently.
  3. At first, Megg said the first blog post was written by Polo Field, even though he had yet to join Club Penguin. She fixed it to Happy77 later.
  4. This is the most odd thing of all, I have no idea how this happened. Compare the image above with an image from actually during the Western Party 2006. You’ll immediately notice a few differences. The saddle on top of the left speaker instead of behind it and the pennants continuing over the hay alcove instead of stopping are probably just in-game overlapping errors that were never fixed, but appear correct on the SWF. So that I understand. What I don’t understand is that in the original party, there was a horseshoe on the door and a wooden dance floor with the spotlight shining on it. In this blog post image, it is the normal dance floor (no spotlight) and the everyday star on the door. I have no idea how this could have happened. Here is an original picture from July 2006:

Also, Megg says the party never came back. It actually did, in November 2007. It won in a party vote – the Western Party, Sports Party, or the Pirate Party. The Western Party won and even had some brand new decorated rooms. Now, maybe it’s not technically considered an official Western Party because it was called the Surprise Party.

Whatever. Oh, and the Halloween Party starts tomorrow! Be here for the latest information.

Club Penguin Upcoming Events Section My Way!

So, I’ve been disappointed with the way Club Penguin has been doing their upcoming events section in the Club Penguin Times. It’s very bland and they don’t even include all the updates. They also make many mistakes almost every newspaper issue. I worked on my own rendering on how I would do it. I included pictures with each update listing just as Club Penguin did from 2008-2010. Click to see it in the full size.

What do you think? Should I do more?

Club Penguin New September Homepage Slide

This was probably added two weeks ago when Club Penguin updated August 31st, but I didn’t notice it until now. There is a new homepage slide advertising the new September editions of the Penguin Style Catalog and Furniture & Igloo Catalog.

In related news, Club Penguin didn’t update the two boxes underneath the slides like they usually do every month.

New Pin Hidden – Argyle Pattern Pin!

Two weeks have passed and another new pin is hidden on the island! The new pin is the Argyle Pattern Pin. You’ll find it at the Clothes Shop, formerly the Gift Shop. It looks like a stamp!

The last pin to be hidden at the Clothes Shop was the Imperial Pin in January-February 2015. It is only the 4th pin to be hidden in this room, following the Soccer Ball Pin, Tropical Bird Pin, and the Imperial Pin.

Club Penguin Times Issue #557

The Club Penguin Times Issue #557 has been released!

The first article lists five rejected trading post items.

The second article is about the Halloween Party, which is coming in two weeks, much earlier than usual. If you were expecting some big jam-packed newly decorated Halloween Party, all you have to do is read the title and you’re disappointed. Although this article obviously looks like some sort of trick/distraction, I doubt it’s something big. Those bold words do look suspicious, too. When put together and unscrambled, it spells out “Skip the Ghost”, who was involved in the Halloween Party 2014 Puffle Hotel’s activity. We’ll just have to wait and see.

And here are the upcoming events:

2016-09-15_1813

(September 22/23 has no updates)

September 29/30

  • Halloween Party Begins!
  • New Penguin Style Catalog
  • New Furniture & Igloo Catalog
  • New Igloo Music
  • New Club Penguin Times
  • New pin hidden
  • Frozen Fever Party Ends

There are a few mistakes with the upcoming events box as usual nowadays. It says a new newspaper will be released on October 5th, however that would be a week with no newspaper. Furthermore, the next pin hidden says it will be hidden for three weeks instead of two.

This week in Ask Aunt Arctic, a penguin asks how they can find hidden rooms on Club Penguin. Aunt Arctic says there is an entrance to the underground at the Forest, which goes to the Hidden Lake. She then says to go to a Tour Guide for more information.

Like always, this issue also includes Fan Art, a news flash, jokes, and “The Secret of the Belt on the Ski Lift” as an island secret. There are clouds moving in the picture, not sure if that means anything. I heard it was just part of the room SWF when someone uses the Card-Jitsu Snow changing sky feature. And also please ignore the blue lines on the screen in the image due to a Club Penguin bug that has been out for almost two years.

The next newspaper issue will be released on September 29.

Blog – New Video Blog Series – Coming Soon!

Well it has been said that the new web show Waddle On Wednesday would premier on the 14th, but unfortunately it is more of a sneak peek of what’s to come rather than an actual episode. Here is Megg’s post and the video:

Hey, penguins!
 
Many of you have been asking for us to bring The Spoiler Alert back, and guess what! That’s what we’re planning to do…Well, sort of… ;)
 
Check out this video find out more:
That’s right! We want YOU to help decide what we talk about and show. Leave your segment ideas in the comments below!
 
The next Waddle On Wednesday video will be released on October 5.
 
Waddle on, 
 
-Club Penguin Team
What do you think? The next one and hopefully the first actual episode will be out in three weeks, Wednesday, October 5.

BREAKING: Spike Hike Waddles On and Sneak Peek, Meet Up

On Wednesday, September 7, 2016 at 6:51 PM EST (yesterday), Spike Hike (Chris Heatherly) officially announced his departure from not only Club Penguin, but Disney itself. He replaced Billybob in October 2012 and took position of general manager/CEO and the head of Club Penguin for nearly four years. Here is what he had to say on the Club Penguin Blog, his final post:

Hey penguins,

The time has come for me to waddle on to my next adventure – and so I will be leaving Disney.

Getting to spend time with you all in Club Penguin has been one of the true joys of my life, and it has been for my family too, as all three of my kids have grown up with you in the Penguin community. I want to thank you all for so many special memories and especially thank the Penguin team for all their hard work and amazing creativity over the years!!

I couldn’t make this move if I didn’t feel you were in good hands and I have to say, the best is yet to come! Project: Super Secret looks amazing and should be ready for you to beta test in the next few months.

As proof, the team has given me one more sneak peek to share and here it is:

[Click here to watch the video on the blog]

Of course, I couldn’t say goodbye without one more party and so Spike Hike will make a special farewell appearance tomorrow, Sept. 8 at 3:30pm Penguin Standard Time on the server Fog. If I don’t get the chance to see you Sept. 8, I’ll definitely be back for special events like the launch of Project: Super Secret and anniversaries!!

YOU are what makes Club Penguin so special! Thank you for letting me be a part of it!

Waddle On,

-Spike Hike

This was completely unexpected. It is unknown who will take his place right now or if anyone will for that matter, because that’s the way it sounded on his tweet.

Now this post also came with some good news, which was over a minute of Project: Super Secret footage. The video reminds me more of a video game with an objective rather than just waddling around and meeting new friends.

So, yeah, that’s it. However, if you want one last chance to see him, he is hosting a meet-up TODAY at 3:30pm Penguin Standard Time (PST) on the server Fog. He didn’t say what room, so I just suggest the Town.

Thanks Spike Hike for all the good memories.
