They're always having fun

"We are the Paprika Twins, We’re always having fun!"

Paprika is an animated series produced in 2018 by French animation studio Xilam.

The series follows the adventures of Stan and Olivia Paprika, a pair of pre-school aged anthropomorphic cats, who also happen to be fraternal twins, as they go about their day playing games and having fun with their friends and neighbors.

Has nothing to do with the Satoshi Kon film of the same name.

Paprika provides examples of:

  • Cannot Keep a Secret: In one episode, Stan tells secrets to others as soon as he learned them.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: While every character has their moments, Pup tends have this the most since she is the youngest.
  • Cool Chair: Stan’s wheelchair doubles as his primary mode of getting around and as a way for Olivia to tag along without having to run alongside.
  • Cranky Neighbor: Magma tends to get frustrated with the twins’ antics from time to time.

  • Failure Is the Only Option: In a cart race with Stan, the mystery racer can’t seem to pass the finish line.
  • Idiot Ball: Olivia was handed this when the twins attend a dinner party with their friends. Stan doesn’t get off Scot-free, either.
  • Intelligible Unintelligible: The seagulls.
  • Secret Word: Stan and Olivia start a secret clubhouse, only to get locked out as they both forgot the secret words. In the end, so did everyone else.
  • Surfer Dude: Bigfoot speaks like this.
  • Unnamed Parent: Stan and Olivia’s parents rarely show up, let alone get a name.


How well does it match the trope?
