Paper Port (Spanish: Puerto Papel) is a Chilean-Argentine-Colombian-Brazilian stop-motion animated series created by Alvaro Ceppi and produced by Zumbástico Studios.
While 12-year old Matilda spends her vacations at her grandfather's house in Paper Port, she finds a magic coconut in said home that grants her a different power every day, which she must deal with in every episode.
Why It Rocks
- Very well done animation.
- Speaking of the animation, it blends stop-motion and 2D animation (for the faces) nicely.
- Likeable characters at their own right (most of the time), especially Matilda, Charlie, Felicia, and Bob.
- Interesting, creative, and unique (in a good way) concept.
- Great voice acting.
- Good attempts at making the main character relatable to the audience.
- Mortimer (Curlybeard's talking pet fish) is a great comic relief.
- Well-written/great episode plots.
- Decent character designs.
- Lots of funny moments.
- Awesome instrumental theme song.
- Nice title cards such as these and creative episode titles as well.
- While the series revolves around Matilda's powers, it doesn't focus on them too much (unlike other series) and pays more attention to the main plot of the episode.
- While the series isn't lost, it's hard to find full episodes online (but not impossible, however).
- Some amounts of toilet humor.
- Some title cards are ugly.
- Matilda can be unlikable sometimes, more notably in "Double or Nothing" and "The Puppet".
- Some of the special effects look cheap.
- Cristina Valenzuela, known for voicing Marinette/Ladybug in Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir, voices Matilda in the English dub.
