Meijer took over Telly from Alfred Lagarde after he passed away in 1998. Meijer's hoarse Telly voice is a lot less gruff than Lagarde's. He does various other voices as well, and is heard in many cartoon series.
His non-Henson work includes voicing Derek in the Dutch dub of Bobby's World, Henry Mitchell in Dennis the Menace (opposite Hero Muller and Maria Lindes as George and Martha Wilson), and the announcer in Teletubbies (opposite Marlies Somers as Po).
In 2006 Fred Meijer won the Zilveren Koe (Silver Cow) award for his contribution to the quality of dubbing in the Netherlands. Other winners of the award are Paul van Gorcum (2004), Marjolein Algera (2005), and Maria Lindes (2010).
