    Frederick Herman Jones also known as Fred and Freddy is a fictional character in the Scooby-Doo franchise. He is the leader of Mystery Incorporated, and is a great loyal friend to his teammates. He’s the man with the plan when solving mysteries and trapping bad guys.

    Why He Rocks

    1. He’s the very likable and unforgettable leader of Mystery Incorporated.
    2. He has many memorable catchphrases and lines of dialogue, such as ”Hold the phone’”, "It’s trapping time!" or “Well, gang, it looks like we’ve got another mystery on our hands”.
    3. He’s a great traps expert, as he knows when to build traps to catch villains, and usually has Shaggy and Scooby as bait to lure the bad guys to the traps.
    4. Frank Welker does an amazing job portraying/voicing the character.
    5. His plans usually end up failing hilariously, but it’s also nice when his plans actually work sometimes.
    6. He’s a good detective, as he’s great at finding clues and knows that splitting up is a great way to cover more ground.
    7. He is a great and loyal friend to his teammates, especially Daphne, because most fans suspect they are in a relationship, which is actually explored in Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated and some of the animated movies in the franchise, and they have some cute moments.
    8. He’s generally very handsome, but he’s also a nice guy, especially towards his friends, and is always there to help anyone who needs it.

    Bad Qualities

    1. While his design looks good in most Scooby-Doo media, there were unfortunate times where it did not look good:
      • In Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get A Clue!, he looks really weird and a little uncanny. It's interesting to note that he’s supposed to represent his live-action appearance from the live-action Scooby-Doo movies.
      • In Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!, his redesign is awful and looks very little to nothing like his original counterpart, and instead looks more like a bad attempt to imitate Seth MacFarlane's art style like Family Guy, American Dad! or Brickleberry's art style. Speaking of his redesign, it is unfitting in the Scooby-Doo franchise, as it fits more into an adult cartoon or parody.
    2. He’s absent in a few Scooby-Doo shows, most notably Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get A Clue! after appearing in just one episode, which was wasted potential.
    3. There have been unfortunate times where he fell into flanderization land:
      • In Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, while he wasn’t actually flanderized, it felt like he was, because he became stuck in his own ego much like he was in A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, and has a huge obsession with traps.
      • In Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!, he was flanderized into dialing it up to 11 and is stuck in his own ego even more than he was in A Pup Named Scooby-Doo and Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, where he is into traps.


    • Fred is the only character that will have his character design faithful in the Scooby-Doo spinoff Velma in which will release in 2023.
