SynopsisEdit

In the fictional suburban Baltimore/DC area town of Herkleston, Maryland, a boy named Craig Williams and his two friends Kelsey and John Paul "J.P." have their many adventures in the titular creek, described as a kid utopia of untamed wilderness in which tribes of children reign over tree forts and dirt bike ramps.[5]

CharactersEdit

MainEdit

  • Craig Williams (voiced by Philip Solomon) – A 9-year-old boy who enjoys playing at the creek with his friends, Kelsey and J.P. He is a natural leader and always tries to help other kids when they need it the most. He typically carries a homemade staff and a satchel. In "Escape from Family Dinner", it is implied that Craig is smart to some degree as he takes advanced math and admits that he likes the class. He also takes on the role of a cartographer as he is constantly making additions to his detailed map of the Creek.
  • Kelsey Bern (voiced by Georgie Kidder (pilot, S01, Ep 1-3), Noël Wells (S01 Ep 4-present)) – A ginger-haired, 8-year-old girl who is one of Craig's friends. She is always seen wearing a purple cape and has a pet budgerigar (which she identifies as a falcon) named Mortimer who is usually perched on top of her head. She typically carries a homemade PVC pipe sword which she proudly made herself. She is adventurous, loves books, and tends to be overly dramatic. She often internally narrates her life, for which others are completely aware. She is raised by her single widower father. In "Doorway to Helen", it is revealed that Kelsey is Jewish.
  • John Paul "J.P." Mercer (voiced by H. Michael Croner) – A tall, Southern-accented 10-year-old boy who is one of Craig's friends. He wears an oversized red hockey jersey. While not very bright, he is imaginative and kind to those around him. He is prone to getting very dirty and injuring himself. His namesake is short for John Paul, as revealed in "You're It". In "Under the Overpass", Craig stated that he and Kelsey "found" J.P. in a previous adventure.

Craig's FamilyEdit

  • Jessica Williams (voiced by Dharma Brown (pilot) and Lucia Cunningham (series) – Craig's younger sister who typically likes to keep everything in check by describing her actions out loud. She is very smart for her age, detail-oriented, and already shows an interest in the stock market.
  • Bernard Williams (voiced by Phil LaMarr) – Craig's smart, no-nonsense, and sometimes snobby, teenage older brother. He looks down on Craig and his adventures at the creek. He is obsessed with getting good grades and getting into an Ivy League school. He values love and the importance of homework. He used to play Bring Out Your Beast and showed interest in teaching it to Craig.
  • Duane Williams (voiced by Terry Crews) — Craig's understanding father who works as a personal trainer. He sometimes plays retro video games with Craig. He loves bad jokes.
  • Nicole Williams (voiced by Kimberly Hebert Gregory) – Craig's loving mother who works as a school counselor and cares deeply for her children.
  • Earl Williams (voiced by LaMarr (pilot) and Phil Morris (series) – Craig's grandfather and Duane's father. Craig looks up to him and has inherited his adventurous spirit.
  • Jojo Williams (voiced by Saundra McClain) – Craig's grandmother who is a city councilperson and was a civil rights activist back in the 1960s.
