Those who were around when YouTube was first launched in 2005 know that the platform has evolved significantly since then. In the past few decades, many of the content types and creators have faded away, and many of them now seem like distant memories.
Fred Figglehorn, a fictional character created by a young man, was one of the first well-known YouTubers. The Fred youtube channel was created by Lucas Cruikshank at the age of thirteen. In 2012, he had a show on Nickelodeon that aired to millions of subscribers. In addition, there was a slew of miniseries.
Do you think Fred is still around? What is Lucas up to today? Here’s what we’ve learned.
Where is Fred Figglehorn now?
Fred is no longer a source of inspiration for Lucas. While millions of people still subscribe to his YouTube channel today, he uploaded his final video in 2012. However, the channel was revived with new content thanks to Fred’s success. As of 2014, his videos were specifically aimed at children.
Multiple series have run on Fred since the reboot. Questions My Parents Won’t Answer, which featured real kids asking questions of their own parents, was the most recent video to be shared. Random adults on the street would be approached by these teams and asked questions that parents would normally find difficult to answer for their children. Questions like where do babies come from” and “why do some people live in the park?”
“Kid Advice,” “The Substitute,” as well as other shows, we’re also available on the Fred youtube channel. In the end, none of them lasted long. Fred’s YouTube channel went dark in 2014, with no new videos being posted since then.
What is Lucas Cruikshank doing now?
Lucas now has a YouTube channel with more than 3.2 million subscribers without Fred. This one is more of a commentary piece, and he will occasionally post content that is primarily about him. He writes about pop culture, including celebrity gossip, reality television, and social media influencers. He also brings up his relationship with Fred from time to time.
Lucas reads from his self-published book, Fred Figglehorn Hackin’ Awesome School Jokes, in one of his videos. The book came about because Lucas said he agreed to any idea that came his way at this point in his career as Fred.
When it comes to Fred, the videos, movies, and TV shows, he does a lot of reaction videos and talks about what goes on behind the scenes.
A lot of his Nickelodeon show was him talking to the camera, so he had to learn a lot of lines at once, Lucas has said in videos. In addition, he said that when he requested some kind of teleprompter from the company, he was turned down. Claimed that while working on “Fred 2,” the director told him to watch “Fred 1” due to his inability to embody the character.
On Amazon, you can buy all of the movies and TV shows that appear on the Fred channel. Merchandise may be available, too, so keep an eye out. However, Lucas had a limited sale for newly made merchandise in the past, and it is still being resold online. As long as the demand is high, he may do it again.
