*** The Present is the resident Green Hill Zone for Little Planet, featuring a similar art style to Green Hill Zone with Palmtrees, a lake/sea in the background with some hills, and the familiar tunnels and loops.
*** The Past puts somewhat of a Prehistoric twist on the present. The colors may look a bit faded, but is accompanied with a variety of plants and a more laid back version of the present's music.
*** The Bad Future is a darker, and more industrialized version, where the bright happy colors of the water and the sky are much more dirtier and dark, the lush green foliage is now rotten brown, the once lush palm trees are now either rotting and decrepit, or transformed into metallic versions of their former selves, and pipelines scatter across the landscape carrying a never ending stream of pollution.
*** The Good Future may be a palette swapped version of the Bad Future, but the stage uses almost the same colors of the Present on the future landscape (Even the theme uses the same melody from the Present, with a few notes from the Past and Bad Future tracks). For example, the pipelines now carry healthy water for the plants and palm trees instead of harmful pollution from the Bad Future.

These levels are not entirely UnderTheSea, but feature the edge of land and water. This can be an easy, fun and relaxing level in the style of a BeachEpisode, but not always, since the beach can be dramatic. Expect palm trees, sand, fun Caribbean-style music and jetskis. Be wary of StalactiteSpite from falling coconuts. May overlap with GangplankGalleon and/or UnderTheSea, or located near a PortTown.
