Fred Figglehorn

Through his YouTube channel JKL Productions, which he created with his cousins Jon and Katie, Cruikshank originally introduced the character of Fred Figglehorn in June of 2006. The first official video starring the character was uploaded a few months later. Finally, in May of 2008, Cruikshank officially launched the "Fred" series with the video "Fred on May Day." Focused on the titular character, a cranky, hyperactive six-year-old who speaks to viewers about his dysfunctional home life, the series went on to achieve enormous success. In 2009, Cruikshank's "Fred" YouTube channel became the first ever to cross one million subscribers. He subsequently released two comedy albums as the character: "It's Hackin' Christmas with Fred" and "Who's Ready to Party?" The continued popularity of Fred resulted in a franchise consisting of three Nickelodeon television films and a series. The first film, "Fred: The Movie," aired in 2010. It was followed in 2011 by "Fred 2: Night of the Living Fred," with "Fred 3: Camp Fred" concluding the trilogy in 2012. Also in 2012, Nickelodeon aired "Fred: The Show"; disastrously received, the series was canceled after one season, leading to the retirement of the Fred character.
