A quick trip to the Neopian hospital for some sporkle syrup should hopefully cure your Neopet of the dreaded ugga-ugga disease. Online virtual pet community Neopets allows its more than 50 million members to create their own cyberpets and guide them through the ever-growing world of Neopia. The Web site also hosts offers games and messaging; joining the virtual community is free while the interactive world of Neopia is sprinkled with the company's consumer and entertainment clients' interactive marketing campaigns. Users can eat at McDonald's then visit the Disney theater to peruse the new releases, or play a video game with General Mills' Trix Rabbit. Neopets is owned by Viacom's MTV and was launched in 1999.
