    Anyone else expecting the Netflix to drop a Neopets Docu Series in the next couple of years?

    Seeing how things have shifted since I started playing back in 2001, I can see Neo could potentially being the next Fyre Festival phenomenon. Its been a huge part of pop culture over the years. I would love to see staff coming out and spilling the tea on some of the things management has said or done over the years and dishing on details we don't even know.


    Random staff Member being interviewed would be like "They literally told us if we ate omelettes on site, we had to eat it in 3 bites or we'd be fired..and jesus fucking christ...there was so much jelly everywhere I couldn't think straight"


    Even part of a series of old websites that went downhill like club penguin i would live for tbh. I would think so many people would be intrigued by it.

    Didn’t they announce at the start of the pandemic that there would be an animated Netflix series eventually?
    I’m pretty sure it’s in the works!
    I could definitely see that happening depending on where the animated series goes.

    I never thought about it, but it could be interesting. I do worry they might have a certain lack of certain content because there wouldn't be much (if any) archival footage to pepper things with, but I'd absolutely be interested if NDAs allowed for it.

    That said, it would definitely be cool if we could see a lot of different perspectives and sort of track the decline and hopeful revival.

    I like what you said about including other websites and to see something about online communities that had fallen in general. Like how tumblr was bought for one billion and then sold for three million. I've ended up following a handful of former/current tumblr devs on tumblr and apparently they have loose NDAs because they've definitely revealed a bunch of shit.

    Or like how Myspace tried to completely rebrand and redesigned itself, but it lost all of the charm so people moved on to facebook and wherever else. Good lord Tom is doing well for himself and I love that for him.

    Also could be cool to look at the opposite. I used reddit a lot in like 2010-15, and then sort of tapered off, popping in occasionally. But I took a closer look in 2019-ish after my old job did some work with employees there, and it had become a lot more social-media-y. Lost a lot of what I liked, but it was certainly extremely more successful.

    idk, i'm a total hoe for internet culture and how so much has changed over time and the general idea of digit archeology and internet anthropology, and i feel like this would fit in with a bonus Company Documentary vibe

    Oh i did not know it would be on netflix. curious how that would go

    but also i was hoping most of this being not sponsored by neo but more of a journalistic 3rd party approach

    I'm sure that animated series isn't being made anymore. At least not by the original studio stated. it could be possible things change in the future

    I definitely think it would be so cool to see a journalistic approach. Especially since it felt like overnight neopets had such a hold on everyone with McDonald’s promoting toys and Limited Too selling so much merch. There was a minute where you couldn’t escape it. It would be very interesting to get some behind the scenes intel.

    I'd love a youtube video analysis of the PC drama.

    Dunno if it could compare to fyre lmao, neopets didn't strand a bunch of people on a shitty island with fema tents and barely any food, water or supplies. Internet historian does my absolute favorite video on that disaster.

    There are a few videos about neo, theres a down the rabbit hole video plus that one chick Izzzyzzz does a few.
