A Closer Look: A Guide to the Blitz on the Fritz Side Quest 🔍🐝

What a week it’s been! Just in the past couple of days, Goofball Island’s side quest sequel was released, the Poptropica mobile apps have been updated, and news of PoptropiCon, Episode 2: Spoiler Alert’s return to Pop made headlines! If you’re curious about the Blitz on the Fritz side quest, here’s a quick guide detailing the chaos!



To begin the Blitz on the Fritz side quest, you can travel to Goofball Island directly or you can meet up with a unicycling Mayor Naise on Home Island who will escort you to Goofball himself. In order to accept the quest, you must have already received your island medallion.

Once on Goofball’s Mainstreet, you’ll find Katie Dare waiting outside her Hive News van. She’s looking for “bold, young hero that has what it takes to save the day.” Sound like anyone you know? If you match the description, you’re on the job! Into the news van we go!

Inside the reporter’s van, there’s tons to take in! The walls are covered displays showing six Bee Bots’ status, screens recording altered versions of islands, and. Although Zip, Honey, Flit, Chad, and Queen bees are working smoothly, Blitz is definitely on the Fritz. Blitz has gone rogue!

Apparently, Katie Dare was getting restless with all of the peace around Poptropica. In an attempt to conjure buzzworthy news, Miss Dare gave Blitz, a camera Bee Bot, a blandifying device. Now, Blitz is on a mission to blandify and goofify the other islands.

As of now, Fairytale and Mythology Islands have gotten a dull transformation, while Survival and Escape from Pelican Rock appear wild and wacky. You must normalize the islands and restore them to their former glory!

Click on each island screen to begin. Move your cursor to remove the bland and goofy makeovers, all the while the camera bot continues its chaos. You’ll have 1 minute to erase Blitz’s mess on each island. Secure at least 50% of the island’s normal appearance during that time, and you’ve successfully completed that stage! Do this for all 4 islands to transform the affected areas into their ordinary appearance!

After normalizing Fairytale, Survival, Mythology, and Escape from Pelican Rock, Blitz’s battery is empty. Congratulations, you’ve saved the day once again! As a thank you for your trouble, Katie Dare rewards you with 2,000 credits and a Zip Follower! Thanks for your help, hive five’s all around! 🥳

That wraps up the Blitz on the Fritz side quest? What did you think of the bland and goofy versions of the islands? Do you think any packed in the glitz and glamour, or do you prefer the original island designs? Care to share your opinions/first impressions about the quest? Does Katie Dare have you feeling some type of way? How about Blitz or the unicycling Mayor? As always, you’re welcome to drop your thoughts in the comments below for other players to see! 👀


Thanks for stopping by Popstars! Happy Friday everyone, enjoy your weekend!

LOL guys, I love how the islands were "redesigned". "Ugh Ugh Ugh Ugh" "Yawn" "Chicken City"

What in the world XDXD

Incredible FlameJanuary 15, 2022 am31 10:56 am

Lol, same!

meteorJanuary 14, 2022 pm31 2:51 pm

i personally think that the old poptropica is better than the new one. this blitz on the fritz should not be membership. do you ever think about the people who can't get membership?

JusthowlifeisJanuary 18, 2022 pm31 1:22 pm

Same the old poptropica is better, they always had island after quest for members poptropica has to make money somehow to keep the website running they can’t give each thing for free

Popular HeartJanuary 14, 2022 pm31 6:56 pm

Um when I went on Poptropica I don't see The Baron shop anymore what happened?

January 14, 2022 pm31 10:46 pm

The Baron only visits for a short time each month! They'll be back at the beginning of February though, you can can catch them then! :-) 

Incredible FlameJanuary 15, 2022 am31 10:58 am

Go to the message feature, and you can still access the Baron from there!

This was glitchy and dumb. The old mini-quests like Spook Central and Legendary Swords were way better. Work on old stuff, for the millionth time

Dangerous ShadowJanuary 16, 2022 am31 9:32 am

Everyone says that, and I want them back just as much, but it's axtually really hard. So, they're trying to make some stuff to make it a little bit more fun! We all have to be patient, and thye actually are bringing back some islands: Arabian Nights 2, and Mission Atlantis. We must all be patient!

Incredible FlameJanuary 17, 2022 pm31 12:50 pm

Thanks @Dangerous Shadow! It's good to know there are still people who actually appreciate the creator's work!

aAonymouSsJanuary 26, 2022 pm31 7:59 pm

it was NOT glitchy

anonymousJanuary 14, 2022 pm31 10:06 pm

I also feel like you spend the majority of your time thinking up new terrible puns for the blog instead of anything else.

White RiderJanuary 15, 2022 am31 12:03 am

Great work guys! Haters gonna hate, but who cares, keep doing what you're doing.

anonymousJanuary 17, 2022 am31 8:57 am

I'm not a hater, I'm the only one here who can see through the creators' lies

anonymousJanuary 17, 2022 am31 8:58 am

Also they should listen to us whether we're "hating" or not because we're the players and if they ignore the people who tell them what they're doing wrong, the game will continue to be garbage

White RiderJanuary 17, 2022 pm31 4:37 pm

Not going to argue with a hater. Good day to you

Golden BrianJanuary 17, 2022 pm31 5:55 pm

What If you are the liar and the creators are telling the truth.

Cheerful GamerJanuary 15, 2022 pm31 10:43 pm

I am kinda disappointed I have been waiting for the side quest and then it's for members, not a surprise. Like- why are you making the people without membership wait. Are we not as important? We deserve to see this without waiting. Also, maybe in you're posts you should tell us if it's for members or not.
So disappointed

Cheerful Gamer

PersonJanuary 17, 2022 am31 9:48 am

They put it in their earlier post it was for members.

Cheerful GamerJanuary 17, 2022 pm31 10:45 pm

I know, that's what Im telling you

heyJanuary 15, 2022 pm31 10:49 pm

Oh wow! That looks exciting! I would have loved to see the islands bland and goofy! My brain is already spinning just thinking about how could that could be.

OliverJanuary 17, 2022 pm31 5:53 pm

Goofy survival island looks like something from a Dr. Seuss book.

Noisy WolfJanuary 18, 2022 pm31 3:17 pm

Ya, It's Unfair because people without memberships have to wait on things that they think look so good but they're not because they just waited for a not so good thing. So Poptropica creators, just bring some more islands for people without memberships so they can play them. :(

Cuddly StormJanuary 20, 2022 pm31 5:35 pm

really hoping PoptropiCon, Episode 2 is actually challenging and fun and not a 5 minute play through like fairytale and goofball.

Nice PenguinJanuary 21, 2022 pm31 6:11 pm

I agree they were way too quick. I like an island that is long like the other ones.

Sleepy StarfishJanuary 26, 2022 pm31 1:13 pm

The islands look so cool blandified and goofified!
