Fred is a large, green, dragon-like monster. He debuted as a nameless father monster in the sketch "Monster Father and Son" on The Ed Sullivan Show, with Baby Monster as his son.

The character subsequently appeared on Sesame Street, where he is greeted by name in a season one sketch by the character who would become Grover (here, Fred was performed by Jim Henson with a slowed down voice.)

In some Sesame Street appearances, his teeth were not visible. In one skit, in which Ernie goes rock hunting, he also had a large rock-like dome instead of horns (Fred was performed by Frank Oz here.)

Fred also appeared in the background in The Great Santa Claus Switch.
