On This Day In Club Penguin History – December 17

On the 17th of December Club Penguin has updated in 2010, plus in 2013 Club Penguin released a new YouTube video and in 2014 the first ever Club Penguin television special, “We Wish You a Merry Walrus”, premiered on television in the United Kingdom.

The most minor update on this day in 2010 was there being new servers added to the game. Here’s the full list:

  1. Adventure
  2. Beanbag
  3. Cream Soda
  4. Fiesta
  5. Grasshopper
  6. Hockey
  7. Hot Chocolate
  8. Hypothermia
  9. Jack Frost
  10. Jackhammer
  11. Migrator
  12. Mullet
  13. Pine Needles
  14. Puddle
  15. Oyster
  16. Sardine
  17. Zipline
  18. Skates

Another update in 2010 was a new pin being hidden on the island.¬†The Snow Globe Pin, Club Penguin’s 142nd pin overall, was located at the Dock. This is the sixth pin to be hidden in that room.

The other three updates in 2010 all have to do with the holidays and Coins For Change. The Holiday Party began and Rockhopper arrived for it, plus Coins For Change was beginning, too. Rockhopper’s free item for all players was the Globe Hat. All players could purchase the Coins For Change Background from his rare items catalogue. Also in the catalogue were three T-Shirts for 100 coins each that members could buy. They were the Build Safe Places T-Shirt, Protect The Earth T-Shirt, and the Provide Medical Help T-Shirt. Members could also buy the Coins For Change banner to display in their igloo for 100 coins each. The December 2010 visit from Rockhopper was his fourth and final one of the year.

At the 2010 Holiday Party nonmembers could obtain the Reindeer Antlers at the Ski Village and members could go on Santa’s Sleigh and collect¬†the Santa’s Present Bag item. At Coins For Change you could donate to build safe places, protect the earth, and providing medical help. In 2010 you could donate in 100, 500, 800, or 5,000 coin amounts.

That’s it for 2010. In 2013 the Club Penguin Team released a new video, titled “Christmas with the UK Club Penguin Team!”. Here’s the video:

As for 2014, on this day that year Club Penguin’s first ever television special, We Wish You a Merry Walrus, premiered on television in the United Kingdom on Disney Channel. Set on Merry Walrus Eve, the special follows a seafaring penguin named Roofhowse who arrives at the Club Penguin Island, only to find himself wrapped up in an unexpected festive adventure. Following a magical Blue Crystal Puffle, Roofhowse and his new friends journey to the fabled Merry Walrus Island and learn that they must band together to stop their favorite holiday celebration from being silenced forever.

Overall I thought We Wish You a Merry Walrus was a decent and chuckle-worthy television special. Since then two more Club Penguin specials have aired on television, Monster Beach Party and Halloween Panic.
