Welcome to The Grand Lake

“The Grand Lake” is an animated series set in and around Lake Merritt, Oakland. The lake is North America’s oldest wildlife sanctuary.

Created by Matty Stone , the cartoons center around Brooklyn the Pigeon, Wayne the Raccoon, Madison the Goose, and Fallon the Squirrel. All of the main characters are named after streets that are around Lake Merritt.

    1. Aw, thank you so much! It all started with that attempted “Heist,” which I wrote and storyboarded whilst sitting at one of your tables. Thanks for providing such a welcoming and wonderful environment. A constant source of inspiration. I’m forever indebted. ATW.
