JumpStartville is a location that served as a main setting for most JumpStart media from roughly 2000-2003. It contains many buildings and landmarks that have appeared in JumpStart games, and many JumpStart characters have been depicted as living here.
History of Appearances
JumpStartville was first depicted around the early 2000s. It briefly appeared in the opening cutscene for JumpStart Around the World. It is the setting for the JumpStart Advanced series, as well as JumpStart 3 Ring Circus.
Around 2000-2002, JumpStartville appeared on the JumpStart website as the preschool to second grade equivalent of Adventure World. The two locations referenced each other on the website; JumpStartville's artwork featured an entrance to Adventure World, and Adventure World's artwork featured a blimp to JumpStartville.
JumpStartville's last notable appearances in JumpStart media were in the JumpStart Advanced series, and it has ceased to appear in JumpStart media since then.
JumpStartville has been depicted as being located on an island off the coast of California. This is shown in JumpStart Around the World, and alluded to in JumpStart Languages and JumpStart Jukebox.
Individual locations and features of JumpStartville vary in different media, though all depictions of JumpStartville have similarities. Generally, the location served as a hub for all of the houses of the then-current main cast.
JumpStartville also includes some locations that were originally depicted as belonging to other areas. An example of this would be Mount Jumpmore, which was originally depicted as part of Camp Readalot, but was later depicted as part of JumpStartville.
Some JumpStartville locations were also redesigned for the Advanced series.
