Speaking of frivolous lawsuits, some people have been claiming that we use subliminal messages here at Fred The *swirly screen saying, "You Love Fred The appears* But that's nonsense. Everyone LOVES Fred The, so we don't need such clever marketing ploys!

—Fred The Monkey

Fred The Monkey is a Web Animation based loosely off of Homestar Runner by JKR. (Not that one.) It centers around the title character, Fred the Monkey who Flanderized from The Fool to a Jerkass to someone who's just plain lazy, and Sceb, a semi-evil Space Chicken who once in a blue moon checks his mail.

Other characters include:

  • Cloe, an anime-obsessed The Chick and a Genius Ditz, who seems unaware that she brings Sceb down to a nervous wreck.
  • Space Chicken (Sceb's brother), resident OCD workaholic who runs the site as a whole. Played as the Straight Man against all the idiocy around him.
  • Mr. Deutsch, a partially insane teacher who puts food on the table and loves mathematics with a passion.
  • The Fish brothers, Cadberry and Nigel, the former being an annoying know-it-all and the latter actually having good ideas.
  • BDBB, the very lazy music director who likes to quote Monty Python.
  • Mitch, who shows up once in a while to make a point or to be probed by aliens.
  • Clydex. He's a platypus.

A particular part of the website involves Sceb answering questions without, you know, actually answering them.

Some of the cartoons include Easter Eggs, accessible by clicking on something at the end.
