A penguin reading the Club Penguin Times.

Club Penguin Times (known as The Penguin Times before issue #100, released September 2007) was Club Penguin's local newspaper, which came out every week on a Thursday (Late, in 2016 it came out every two weeks on a Wednesday). It could be read at any time by clicking the newspaper icon on the upper left corner of the screen.
Aunt Arctic was the newspaper's editor-in-chief, as well as its formal help columnist for the advice column "Ask Aunt Arctic". The headquarters of the newspaper were moved to the Book Room on June 14, 2012. Club Penguin Times also produced the Newsletter, which could be read on the DS Games. It was announced on April 14, 2015 that sections of some articles of the Club Penguin Times will be posted on the What's New Blog.[1] On April 22, 2016 it was announced that the Club Penguin Times would be released bi-weekly.[2]

The final issue of the Club Penguin Times (Issue #566) was released on March 22, 2017, a week prior to the closure of Club Penguin.

Newspaper look

Originally, the Club Penguin Times was designed very similarly to the way real-life newspapers are, with a front page highlighting parts of the issue. Every few pages would have a different theme, with the first being recent events in Club Penguin, and the last being comics, poems, and etc.

On November 18, 2010, the newspaper was redesigned. Instead of pages, the newspaper was published on two sides of a long paper. The front side had a newsflash, feature stories, the Ask Aunt Arctic section, and then either an upcoming events or rumors section. The back side had either a continuation of Ask Aunt Arctic, comics, or fan art, as well as jokes, and a secrets section.

The Reviewed by You Section was moved to the What's New Blog in May 2009, and the Technical News Section was moved to the What's New Blog in February 2006 as it is more about real life than the game.
Also, after the new look of issue #266, the CP team removed the poetry, puzzles, and comics sections.

  • While mousing over Aunt Arctic in the header of the "Aunt Ask Arctic" section, her glasses are darkened. This also occurs for when other characters take over the section, and can vary from a different facial expression to an entirely different pose.
  • Sometimes, the words "jokes" or "poetry", when moused over on their respective page, make more jokes appear.
  • Sometimes, the PSA or EPF hide a secret message in the newspaper, often conjoining with a future event or mission. The way the messages are hidden varies greatly, varying from part of an image in the paper to a piece of text, although for the former, the image generally relates to agents, and for the latter, it generally relates to words like "classified".


Main article: Comic

The first new comic, which appeared in issue #426.

While some comics have appeared in the Community section of Club Penguin's website, fan made comics were included in all issues up until the new design in November 2010. On December 19, 2013, the comics section was brought back, replacing the second part of Ask Aunt Arctic on the second page. These comics are drawn and written by Club Penguin artists.
