Fred Figglehorn was first seen on YouTube in 2008 as a five year old boy. Cruikshank makes his voice sound higher pitched for the Fred character. By April 2009, Fred's YouTube subscription page had over one million subscribers, making him the most subscribed person on YouTube. His peak amount of subscribers was over 3,000,000. The amount has declined since he started working on his films and TV show due to the hiring of writers to make his scripts for him, thus making his videos less funny. As of July 27, 2012, his channel has 1,910,093 subscribers.
In February 2009 Cruikshank worked with Nickelodeon acting in an episode of iCarly and creating the movies Fred: The Movie, Fred 2: Night of the Living Fred and Fred 3: Camp Fred. He also worked with them, creating his own TV show called Fred: The Show.
The Fred Figglehorn franchise has 3 web shows (FЯED, Figgle Chat, and It's FЯED!), 3 movies (FЯED: The Movie, FЯED 2: Night of the Living FЯED and Fred 3: Camp Fred), and a television show (FЯED: The Show). It also has 2 albums (It's Hackin' Christmas with FЯED! and Who's Ready to Party?). It has many types of merchandise, including T-shirts, a talking doll, and many other products.
FЯED: The Movie [change]
An unpopular, hyper teenage boy named Fred Figglehorn has a huge crush on a girl named Judy, but is devastated to see her singing a romantic duet with his enemy Kevin during music class one day. Because of this, Fred really wants to one day sing a song with Judy, but after trying to dig his way to her house in order to avoid Kevin, he discovers that she has moved. So, Fred goes on a journey to find Judy's new house and sing with her there.
During the quest, Fred runs into different characters, including an talking deer, a long lost childhood friend who had disappeared in the forest years earlier, a neighborhood girl named Bertha, and a boy with a personality opposite to his own named Derf. However, upon arriving at Judy's home, Fred discovers that she is hosting a party that he was never invited to and is bullied by her guests for his poor social status at school and strange personality, and is hurt by the guests' insults into vomiting all over Judy's party dress. Miserable, Fred leaves the house and is furious to find that Kevin has posted a video of him vomiting on Judy online, so he decides to throw a party of his own and not invite anybody to get revenge for not getting an invitation to Judy's party. In order to trick others into believing that he has held a spectacular house party, Fred invites Bertha to his house where they costume mannequins in different outfits and mess around, and after Fred has edited the video the two recorded of the fake party he posts it on the internet, where his schoolmates watch it and believe that Fred and Bertha actually held an extraordinary party. After watching the video, different students at Fred's school say how awesome Fred and Bertha are (except Kevin, who claims the party was "lame"), with some saying they actually went to the party. Soon, Judy visits Fred's house and asks if the two may sing together, and Fred accepts the request.
FЯED 2: The Night of the Living FЯED [change]
Fred arrives home screaming and shares his flashback with the audience. The day before Fred went to music class to play Fur Elise and his favorite music teacher Mrs. Felson, who has trouble hearing, told him that he plays beautifully. The next day he comes in to play, expecting Mrs. Felson, but finds out that she has been replaced by Mr. Devlin. He then sees Mr. Devlin cleaning up and throwing away a hearing aide, which makes Fred cautious. Later he is walking home with his best friend, Bertha, and sees a girl named Talia following them. Believing that he is being stalked, he runs home and arrives screaming. Later that day Fred notices Mr. Devlin is his new neighbor. Fred is immediately suspicious of Mr. Devlin, and begins to think that he may be a vampire.
The next day at school Devlin supports everyone to join a community called Join the World of Music. Fred thinks that Devlin is trying to turn everyone into a vampire by having them take his lessons, and to his horror everyone takes the lessons. That night Fred spies on him and sees him burying something, which he believes is a body. After Fred is done talking to Talia, she vanishes, making him to think she is a ghost; he imagines her ghost in his house and falls down the stairs reaching for her. The door is knocked on and he opens it to see Kevin's mom and she invites them to a party; then it is found out that Talia is Kevin's sister. The next day, the doorbell rings and Fred opens it to see Mr. Devlin, who is taking his mom on a date; this makes him become immediately worried.
Fred gets the help of Bertha to lend a helping hand in getting enough proof that Mr. Devlin is a vampire. Fred and Bertha spy on Mr. Devlin and Fred's mom's date, with Bertha posing as a waitress (when Mr. Devlin remarks that she looks just like one of his students, she covers it up by claiming to be her mother). Mr. Devlin orders a bloody steak making Bertha more suspicous. He then spies on Mr. Devlin, seeing his old music teacher's jacket; he then becomes even more suspicious of Devlin. Later that night, he falls from his window because he notices Mr. Devlin see him as he is trying to get away. Then, his "dad" pulls him up and brings him to a wrestling arena, where they form a tag team. Mr. Devlin and Kevin also form a tag team. His dad beats up Mr. Devlin, Fred finally defeats Kevin and him and his dad win. At this point, Fred wakes up, thinking it was all just a dream. Then Fred goes around putting up crucifixes to fend off Devlin, as vampires hate all things holy. He also sees Derf, who tells him to face his fears and defeat Devlin. Fred then buys garlic sauce from a Chinese restaurant. At the piano recital that night, Fred squirts the garlic sauce on everyone, including Talia. Afterward, to Fred's horror, Mr. Devlin invites him into his house for dinner so that they can "bury the hatchet". Fred sets up a live video streaming from his phone so he can prove that Devlin is a vampire. Inside Devlin's house, Fred discovers a secret butchers' room behind a wall filled with meat and bones. As Fred investigates, Devlin creeps in with a long knife and a tall head-dress, scaring Fred; Fred then drops his phone into a pot of boiling liquid. The video freezes on Devlin, and the frozen image of Devlin in his headdress causes everyone watching the video to think that he is a vampire. But after Devlin talks about every weird hobby he has, Fred starts to relate to him, and he comes to like Devlin.
At school he realizes that everyone has seen his video, which makes everyone believe that Devlin is a vampire. He runs to Devlin's house to apologize but Devlin is too depressed to answer. When Fred sees Mr. Devlin get fired, and put up a sign for his house, saying that he is moving, he feels guilty and tries to fix it all by making them think he is the vampire. Bertha and Talia both help, as Talia reveals how much she hates her brother. Kevin and his friends go up to Devlin's house because they think he has Talia. Devlin tells them that vampires are not real, but Bertha comes out and says, "Vampires are real, but it's not Devlin. It's him!" Then, Fred walks out of the garage carrying Talia, threatening to turn her into a vampire too. Bertha makes Kevin stab Fred, and he gets sprayed with fake blood. Devlin sees Fred and accepts his apology, revealing that he quit his job and sold his house of his own choice, but still sees Fred as his one true friend. In the end, as Fred's mom and Devlin go out for dinner and go out the door, Fred looks at the mirror in his house and sees that Mr. Devlin has no reflection, revealing that he was a vampire after all, and Fred screams in terror as the movie ends.
