Paper Port (Spanish: Puerto Papel) is a Chilean-Argentine-Colombian-Brazilian stop-motion animated series created by Alvaro Ceppi and produced by Zumbástico Studios.

Plot

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

  1. Very well done animation.
    • Speaking of the animation, it blends stop-motion and 2D animation (for the faces) nicely.
  2. Likeable characters at their own right (most of the time), especially Matilda, Charlie, Felicia, and Bob.
  3. Interesting, creative, and unique (in a good way) concept.
  4. Great voice acting.
  5. Good attempts at making the main character relatable to the audience.
  6. Mortimer (Curlybeard's talking pet fish) is a great comic relief.
  7. Well-written/great episode plots.
  8. Decent character designs.
  9. Lots of funny moments.
  10. Awesome instrumental theme song.
  11. Nice title cards such as these and creative episode titles as well.
  12. 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.

Bad Qualities

  1. While the series isn't lost, it's hard to find full episodes online (but not impossible, however).
  2. Some amounts of toilet humor.
  3. Some title cards are ugly.
  4. Matilda can be unlikable sometimes, more notably in "Double or Nothing" and "The Puppet".
  5. Some of the special effects look cheap.

Trivia

  1. Cristina Valenzuela, known for voicing Marinette/Ladybug in Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir, voices Matilda in the English dub.
