Fred Figglehorn (stylized on his page and on t-shirts as FЯED) is a fictional character who is the primary subject of a channel on the video-sharing website YouTube. The videos are centered around a fictional 6-year-old, Fred Figglehorn, who has a dysfunctional home life and "anger management issues".
The character of Fred is portrayed by Lucas Cruikshank (born August 29, 1993), a teenager from Columbus, Nebraska.
Cruikshank introduced the Fred Figglehorn character in videos on the JKL Productions channel he started on YouTube with his cousins, Jon and Katie. He set up the Fred channel in October 2005. By April 2009, the channel had over 1,000,000 subscribers, making it the first YouTube channel to hit one million subscribers and the most subscribed channel at the time. However, on August 20, 2009, fellow YouTube celebrities Ryan Higa and Sean Fujiyoshi and their channel, Nigahiga, overtook the Fred channel as the most subscribed channel of all time.
The Fred channel has received over 59 million channel views and over 380 million video views since its launch. Cruishank has made numerous television appearances as both himself and Fred. Although Cruikshank voices Fred, the audio is digitally edited to sound higher pitched than Cruikshank's true voice, more effectively portraying the voice of a 6-year-old child.
