Lets Play / Treetopia

Go To
The titlecard for the first 72 episodes.

Treetopia is a Let's Play of the game Minecraft and the series was made by The Creatures. It is a part of the famous Treehouse series. It is also known as Treeboot, or Treeset, but those names are less used. It began August 6, 2013 and ended on June 27, 2014, updating every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. It was followed by Creaturetopia.

In this series, most of the members of The Creatures at the time built tree styled buildings (with the exception of Spoon, who built a sandcastle).

The outro music is Hummingbird by Tut Tut Child (feat. Augustus Ghost). It plays during a montage near the end of the Grand Finale episode.


This series provides examples of:

  • Aborted Arc: Nova starts building a Walmart in front of the Desert Rose, but doesn't finish more than just a wall portion.
  • Artifact Title: To some degree. It started small, with Sp00n being the only one without a treehouse or tree-themed building (he had a sandcastle), but at one point only Seamus had an actual treehouse.
  • Beneath Suspicion: When Aleks' hotel gets burned down, he begins to suspect everyone... except Seamus.
  • Blatant Lies: Whenever someone suspects that Seamus (self-proclaimed bomb-removal expert) may be the one planting the conspicuous mines everywhere he feigns complete ignorance.
  • Bounty Hunter: Early in the series, Nova and Aleks order a lot of hits on each other, and Kootra becomes a temporary hitman to cash in.
  • Butt-Monkey: Basically everyone gets down in the dumps at some point in the series, but Aleks seems to take the brunt of it most of the time. His creations are continuously being griefed and demolished, and everyone around him tried to make his life as difficult as possible. Eventually he moves far away to live at the top of the highest mountain just to get away from everyone; and they still manage to come and flood his house with chickens.
  • Christmas Episode: Where The Creatures all decide to see who can build the best Christmas themed thing.
    • Sly built Santa Claus pooping and vomiting (which he explains is because of all those milk and cookies he eats after Christmas) standing on a Christmas tree.
    • Seamus built a Festivus Pole.
    • Kootra and Nova built two halves of a Christmas tree.
    • Dan built a Christian cross on top of the Star of David (he denies any deliberate intent to make it look suspiciously similar to the cross crushing the star).
  • Common Place Rare: Sort of. Kootra needed brown wool to make the Creature Carl statue because he lost the old world. It's sort of Justified since the cocoa beans for that brown wool aren't all that common if you're not in a jungle biome.
  • Clucking Funny: In episode 113, Kootra and Nova go to Aleks' house while he's away and flood it with hundreds of chickens (Sly builds a large flaming penis).
  • Duel to the Death: In episode 57, Nova and Aleks have a fight in Dan's makeshift battledome (actually his chicken pen) over a property dispute. It's a brief, but close fight with Nova killing Aleks first, but dying from lava immediately after.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Dan, twice.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Kootra, because he constantly wrecks everyone else's properties, piggybacks on Seamus' resources and challenges everyone in full diamond armour knowing no one can retaliate.
  • Grand Finale: Yup. The Creatures present decide to blow everything up. We then see a montage of tons and tons of moments in the Treetopia series, with the song, "Hummingbird" playing in the background. After that Dan comes in at the very end and sees everything blown up.
  • Griefer: Bobby Burgular. Because Kootra made a little mistake, Bobby got in, trashed some stuff, and made his own little home.
  • Halloween Episode
    • Aleks built a haunted house with a dungeon basement.
    • Nova built a freak-show.
    • Kootra built a skull (which Nova pointed out, looks like Dry Bones).
    • Sly built the hill from The Nightmare Before Christmas.
    • Dan built a skull (which was based on The Punisher's insignia).
    • Sp00n was not present, but the other creatures placed a pumpkin on his house in spirit.
  • Hidden Supplies: Kootra and some others hide their stuff. Kootra is a well-known example since he moved his money around a bit. Hilarity Ensues when Nova finds it.
  • Humiliation Conga
    • In episodes 76-83, Nova goes to the nether to try and start up his drug business. He ends up dying over and over (mostly to zombie pigmen), losing almost all of his supplies in the process.
    • In episode 116, Kootra is killed no less than half a dozen times within the span of five minutes partly because everyone was tired of shit, partly because he kept spawning on a tiny ledge far above the ground. Right after that the Carl burns down and Dan puts a bounty on Kootra for accidentally wrecking his gate.
  • Karma Houdini: Kootra piggybacks on everyone else, keeps destroying property and loses the map, but eventually finds enough diamonds to build a full suit of armour. This makes it so no one can kill him, but he eventually gets his comeuppance.
  • Karmic Death
    • Lampshaded by Aleks as "Karma". In his eyes, this is what happens when Nova goes to the nether and loses all his stuff, as Nova had previously killed him in a Duel to the Death and taken control of his property, forcing him to move.
    • The few times when Kootra manages to get killed despite his ludicrous gear. Usually by Nova through some dirty tactics like potions or lava.
  • Milestone Celebration: For the 100th episode they attempted to make a treehouse in Minecraft alpha.
  • Oh, Crap!: When they find out that Kootra lost the old world and now they have to start all over again. Because of this, Kootra has to make a statue of Creature Carl and goes on a quest for cocoa beans.
  • Running Gag: Several.
    • People stating that others are having their own Let's Play.
    • Nova hanging animals.
    • Bobby Burgular, who griefed the server in the early episodes.
    • World Peace, the black and white horse, has become this.
    • Saying "For the group!"
    • China china prime china prime prime prime!
    • Seamus and Kootra mining expeditions.
    • The "fire deputy" who always forgets to bring water to a fire.
  • Sequel: To Tree Fortress Reborn.
  • Shoot the Shaggy Dog: During one recording session, Nova spent most his time grinding to get a high enough level to rename his sword "Channings Taint" (and later renames a bow Kanye West as well). It lasts for barely half an hour before he gets knocked into lava and loses everything. It doesn't get any better for him afterwards.
  • Something Completely Different: In one episode, Sp00n puts in footage of his Cookie Clicker playthrough instead of Flava Flav.
  • Stylistic Suck: Dan's shit shacks, which are supposedly meant to be temporary shelters until the construction of the trees are complete, and later as home for Kootra when he becomes a slave.
    Seamus: Rome wasn't built in a day, but that piece of shit was.
  • Team Pet: World Peace. To a lesser extent, China Steed.
  • Tempting Fate: In episode 56, Dan clears out some lingering shrubs next to his house by burning them.
    Dan: I better not burn my house down, I hope that doesn't happen.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: The first episode has most of the people punching Aleks. It doesn't stop there throughout the series. Luckily, this seems to cause no harm on their actual relationships.
    • In episode 4, this happened:
      Nova: Oh shit, it's like straight down to lava. (Beat) Aleks come here!
  • Worthless Yellow Rocks: A bit later on in the series they use gold nuggets and gold for currency. Then, some people start paying in diamonds, so the gold doesn't mean as much anymore.


How well does it match the trope?
