The Prized Porker is an item and character from Early Poptropica Island. You must take it back from the Green Sewer Spider and return it to its owner in the town of Early Poptropica. It seems to be the only source of food for the Pilgrims.
As it belongs in Early Poptropica, the pig's design appears to be 8-bit-a pixelated look-like the people in the little town of Early Poptropica.
Sometime before the player finds the island, the Pig was stolen by the Giant Spider. Luckily, the player (you) came and took it back to its owner, the Farmer. Its owner also hinted that he might soon slaughter the Pig and cook it.
Aside from Early Poptropica, however, they've only made two other appearances, the first in a deleted post on the Creator's Blog. In November 2008, Shark Boy posted a picture of a green banded Pilgrim smiling and holding a cooked turkey while the Prized Porker smiles with him. The post was entitled "Happy Thanksgiving!".
For Poptropica's 8th Birthday, the promotional point "8-bit Birthday" included a redesign of the pig - a birthday hat, better leg animation, and the letter 8 on it's side. This redesign appeared in the promotional images, and on the 8-Bit Birthday Pixel Pig Power card. Using this card turns other NPCs and players into pigs.
- A 'Porker' is a pig raised for food.
- This creature is both an item and a character.
