* HarpoDoesSomethingFunny: How the first series was made. Lucas Cruikshank would come up with a situation, such as "Fred Goes Swimming" or "Fred Can't Find His Meds," film about half an hour and cut it down to four minutes.



* TypeCasting: Thanks to this show, you'd probably see every character Lucas Cruikshank plays from now on as Fred. A poignant example would be Series/MarvinMarvin, where Marvin basically ''is'' Fred.

* CreatorBacklash: In [[http://variety.com/2012/tv/news/lucas-cruikshank-moving-beyond-fred-figglehorn-1118058833/ an article in Variety]], Cruikshank said that he ended production on Fred because he wanted to do something else and not be forever typecast as Fred. (However, given the absolute failure of his post-Fred work, it seems this isn't working so farů)

Considering how poorly his post-''Fred'' projects have gone, this fear may not be forever typecast as Fred. (However, given unjustified. He was also the absolute failure of his post-Fred work, first to say that Fred's voice can only be tolerated for so long before it seems this isn't working so farů)gets annoying.

** Averted in {{the movie}}s with Fred, as Lucas was 16 when filiming took place and Fred was depicted as a 15 year old there. However, it's played straight with the ages of Music/JennetteMcCurdy (17), Jake Weary (19) and Music/PixieLott (18) during filming. Fred is the only person in the middle school he goes to that actually looks like he could reasonably be a middle schooler.
