This is actually one of my preffered pages on the site. It is basically a bunch of rumours that has been floating around CP for quite some years now. Some will seem like old news (such as ninjas and Happy77), but a few years ago they were actually hot rumour topics!
Ninjas have been rumoured for a LONG time after CP was released, mainly as there were ninjas in Penguin Chat 3 (see penguin chat page). But since then, nobody heard anything about ninjas…UNTIL! Easter 2008 when there was a NINJA egg in the Dojo for the Easter egg hunt.
Then there were the ninja shadows at the Halloween party 2008, and about a week later, there were signs ALL over! like shadows in the Lighthouse, Plaza, Ski Lodge, Town etc. were moving about!
Then after the Dojo was blown down by the storm at the Halloween party 08, penguins started to ‘Dig out the Dojo’, it turned out it was buried in snow all along! there were a few clues there too, shadows moving outside, and of course, the ninja poster!
THEN! there was the penguin Sensei who actually built the Dojo when he was alone once, turns out he was out in the wilderness all along, and he began training ninjas at the Dojo, with the help of CARD-JITSU.
Those who earned their black belts and finally beat Sensei, could now have the black ninja mask and have access to the Ninja Hideout (left) of the Dojo! Which inside, in the Martial Artworks catalogue, members could by the ninja suit, the hand gong, and even a Dojo igloo!
So this rumour is officially: SOLVED!!!
Well, in Penguin Chat 3 and in early Club Penguin Happy77 was known quite well as a moderator, but since mid 2006, everyone started forgetting about her and it was like she just…vanished!
Until December 2008, nobody had heard anything from her, but BillyBob announced on the blog, that Happy77 and Screenhog will be posting more often. Happy then began posting very often, even surpassing Billybob on a weekly basis. However, in late 2012 both Billybob and Happy revealed that they would be BOTH leaving CP for good. Farewell guys, you gave us this amazing game we have today.
Therefore this rumour has been: SOLVED!!!
Rumour: Yellow Puffle!
Many penguins have said that they have yellow puffles in their igloo’s and if you ‘tip the iceberg’ you get a yellow puffle and about 100,000 coins or so…well this is FAKE, you cannot possible tip the Iceberg (yet anyways).
Until Halloween 2007, (notice how many rumours are solved at Halloween?) nobody owned a yellow puffle of their own, but 1 was spotted at the Forest and Mountain every 15mins or so, then after Halloween, when the Stage was being built, you could see a yellow puffle at the top of the Stage every so often. Then when the Stage was built, the same yellow puffle could be seen INSIDE the Stage! about a week later, the Penguin Times talked about the puffles then a few days/weeks later, the yellow puffles were up for adoption at the Pet Shop! (members only sadly)
This rumour has been: SOLVED!!!
Rumour: Tipping the Iceberg
This is probably one of the biggest rumours on CP (after ninjas), well this is one rumour that is FAKE! there is NOway you can tip the Iceberg (yet) so don’t believe any penguin that says you can, or shows you fake pictures or a video.
The Penguin Times writes about this subject all the time, usually in the Aunt Arctic section. CP also released a Tipping The Iceberg Puzzle that can be found at Toys R Us stores across N.America. Could this be a sign?
So far, this rumour remains: UNSOLVED!!!
Snowcats are yellow JCB-like vehicles that penguins in Penguin Chat 3 could drive around in a special area. In a issue of the Penguin Times, Aunt Arctic announced CP would be crazy with loads of vehicles driving around the island. So Snowcats are not on CP yet, but in the Lighthouse, there is a small Snowcat in a bottle, which has been in there ever since the Lighthouse was re-built in 2006.
But with the new release of Club Penguin: Elite Penguin Force on Nintendo DS, on the trailer it showed a penguin driving a Snowcat!!! this is probably one of the many mini-games you can play on the game, so maybe CP is thinking of bringing back snowcats!
So this rumour remains: UNSOLVED!!! kinda…
