The Paper Brigade is a 1996 family comedy film directed by Blair Treu and starring Kyle Howard, Robert Englund, and Travis Wester. The movie follows an unlikely group of teenage misfits who band together to stop a group of bullies from vandalizing their neighborhood. The movie is set in a small suburban town, where a new family, the Gunns, has just moved in. The young Gunns, played by Howard and Wester, are both avid comic book fans and are hoping to make new friends in their new town.

However, things take a turn for the worse when the Gunns accidentally stumble upon the local bullies, led by Tony (played by Englund), who are vandalizing the neighborhood. The bullies are using bulldozers to tear down fences and destroy property, and the Gunns are the only ones who witness the crime. The bullies quickly turn their attention to the Gunns and begin to harass them relentlessly. The Gunns try to avoid the bullies, but they soon realize that they can't run forever.

In order to protect themselves and their neighborhood, the Gunns decide to take matters into their own hands. They band together with a group of other outcast teenagers, including a tough girl named Sophie, a computer whiz named Oggie, and a boy who loves to build contraptions named Corky. Together, they form 'The Paper Brigade,' a secret organization that is dedicated to protecting their neighborhood from the bullies.
