Theory Week: More Counterfeit Art


Let’s just start this right away, it’s very late here and I barely got this post out on time, it was posted at like 10:30 pm where I live. I was even originally going to do a huge post on Poptropolis, but I realized I wouldn’t be able to do it tonight, so enjoy this little theory instead. It won’t be as good or as long as my other theories, it’s the best I can do for now. As for the Poptropolis theory, that should be out sometime in the next couple days.

So, remember that Pop Art Museum in Early Poptropica?

Now that I think about it, a lot of the same paintings appeared on both Early Pop and Counterfeit. For example, there is a copy of “Starry Night” in the museum on Early Pop, another in the Counterfeit museum, and another in that package with the secret message on it.


From the PHB

At the end of Counterfeit, however, we learn that all the art in the Counterfeit Island museum was counterfeit (that’s how the island got its name) and that the real art was hidden behind everything else so they wouldn’t get stolen.

So, if some of the art from Counterfeit is also in the Pop Art Museum, that means that all the art in there is counterfeit too.

Pretty shocking, right? Actually, not really. That Pop Art Museum looks too pathetic to have real art tbh.

But there’s something that makes no sense about the art. Why does it look like it would here, in the real world, yet Pop looks all cartoon-y and stuff? Why didn’t they change the art to look like that Poptropican Mona Lisa in Time Tangled?

Oh wait, that looks real in the background…

I am seriously confused right now, someone please explain if you can actually come up with an explanation in the comments or something. In fact, I may make an entire post on this once I come up with an actual reason behind it.

  1. Real reason: They got careless.
    But that’s lame. My reason?
    The painting got transfered to the Counterfeit museum, which is why it’s so new. It would make sense, minus the gapping flaw of it’s in two places at once. The other theory is that the ones in the Pop Art museum is fake.
    And i think that da Vinci may have been toying with ideas.
    Whew! That’s enough being philosophical for me today! i’m going to go play with glow sticks now!
