At its core, ''Fred'' is just a teenager acting hyperactive and pitching up his voice. That alone created one of the biggest Website/YouTube phenomena of its time, spawning merchandise, music, a TV show, and a trilogy of movies. ''Fred'' is also one of the oldest phenomena on Website/YouTube, starting around Halloween 2006 (a year after the site's inception). His videos have gained lots of attention, regularly getting tens of millions of views, with his most viral video clocking out at over 70 million views, which is all the more impressive when you consider that this was all back when [=YouTube's=] userbase was so small that you could count the number of channels with more than a million subscribers ''with your fingers''. Oh, and speaking of subscribers, Fred's channel was also ''the first'' channel on [=YouTube=] to hit 1 million subscribers, so there's that.[[note]][[https://www.google.com.br/amp/variety.com/2009/digital/news/the-first-youtube-channel-to-hit-one-million-subscribers-33382/amp/ source]][[/note]]

* StealthInsult: The entire "Fred" character is one to video bloggers. Lucas Cruikshank is literally comparing them to obnoxious, self-absorbed children.

The channel went through some [[DorkAge strange phases]] after Cruikshank sorta retired Fred as his animated equivalent in ''It's Fred!'' took over, culminating in the irreversible changes made after the series of [[ReplacementScrappy universally hated]] ''New Fred'' videos made when the channel was supposedly owned by Yuksung Corporation, a fictional Sotuh Korean company. After the channel was "reclaimed" by Lucas in a stunt that revealed Fred to be held hostage by the Yuksung company, the channel started putting out new series of skits that [[InNameOnly weren't even slightly pertinent to Fred]] and only gained a fraction of the original Fred videos' views. The channel has since stopped uploading.
