The Ground Is Lava! Gallery Transcript

"The Ground Is Lava!" is the 3rd episode of the third season of Craig of the Creek and the 83rd episode overall.


When an intense game of The Ground is Lava breaks out, Craig must carefully traverse the Creek to save his sister.







  • The titlecard resembles that of the Adventure Time episode "King's Ransom".
  • A different font is used for the featured voices section of the credits. This may be an error.
  • The original storyboard by Verhagen had J.P. shed a tear when his grass wig blew away in the wind.[1]


  • Craig refers to the Timekeeper's sousaphone as a tuba once again, despite her being shown to be sensitive about it.
  • Yustice's imagined body replacement technique leaves a log behind, a reference to the substitution Jutsu in Naruto. She previously did this in "In the Key of the Creek".
  • When Jessica asks Craig if she can draw with him tomorrow, she says "Just like I drew it!", imitating Craig's tone from the original line in "Jessica Goes to the Creek" that became the post-credit sequence.


(mm:ss) Craig and Kelsey jump on more rocks than Jessica puts down.



  1. Charmaine Verhagen on Twitter: JP's tear for his wig was nixed, but here we are, THE END. I pulled these shots from an older file, upon hand-in the missing BGs would have been included!)" / Twitter
