John Paul "J.P." Mercer is the tritagonist of the Cartoon Network series Craig of the Creek. He is an 11-year-old boy in middle school who hangs out at the Creek with his best friends Kelsey and Craig. He is voiced by H. Michael Croner.


Physical appearance

J.P. is tall compared to most characters in the series. He has light skin, a large head with proportionally smaller cheeks, black eyes and eyebrows, and red hair.

J.P. wears a long-sleeve orange and white striped V-neck hockey jersey, black shoes, and tan pants with a tear on his right knee.

Personality

J.P. is optimistic, friendly, adventurous, and insightful, for better or worse. He is very imaginative, sometimes to the point of seeming detached from reality, yet at other times he is hyper-aware, sometimes even breaking the fourth wall. Such statements usually go over other characters' heads, which can cause others to perceive him as unintelligent. He is relatively indifferent to the negative opinions some have of him, instead standing up for his friends.

As time goes on, he becomes more respected by kids and adults alike, sometimes even impressing Craig and Kelsey.

Relationships

Laura

Laura has to take care of J.P, given that their mother works in the morning and afternoon. As irritating as J.P. can be to her, given his reckless and outright idiotic behavior, Laura loves him as a younger brother and takes care of him like a mother.

Craig

Bobby

J.P. met Bobby in "You're It" when he bumped into him, causing Bobby to drop his candy. J.P. helped him pick up his candy. They are amiable toward each other, but don't spend time together.

In "Memories of Bobby", J.P. mourned Bobby's supposed departure.

Mackenzie

Mackenzie initially does not like J.P. In "JPony", she sabotages the horse course to make him fail. She believed that J.P would assume leadership of the Horse Girls and make them forget about her. However, J.P. did not intend on doing this and did not want to be a horse anyways.

Melissa

TBA

Maney

J.P. and Maney have mutual affection. She and J.P. spend the majority of the episode "JPony" being together to the dismay of the other Horse Girls. Even though J.P. does not share her interest in horses, preferring trucks instead, Maney respects his differences.

In "Tea Timers' Ball", he takes Maney to the ball and dances with her.

Sewer Queen

In "Lost in the Sewers", the Sewer Queen gives J.P. a firm handshake to repay him for his help unclogging the Sewers. He is disappointed because she gave Craig a pair of water shoes and Kelsey a cart.

Jason

Tony

TBA

Boris

He and Boris antagonize each other in "The Invitation", but like Craig and Jason, they join forces to foil the Tea Timers' plan.

In "Sleepover at JP's", Boris sympathizes with J.P's desire to introduce his friends to his mother and releases the Stump Kids and Bobby from jail.
