Early history

Fred's family was from New Lichfield, Massachusetts.[1]

Fred graduated from Coolsville High School, where Principal Weathers was in charge. When he visited the school later, an old teacher named Mrs. Harpee recognized him, called him "Frederick," and tried to give him detention.[2]

Scooby-Doo (DC Comics)

Weathers was proud of her "famous graduates" and invited them all back as chaperones for a prom.[3]



  • Fred is the favorite nephew of his rich Uncle Thurmond, who invited him and the gang to stay at his beach-front estate in Miami.[4]
  • Fred's grandmother (maternal or paternal side unspecified) invited the gang to a fancy party, and Fred thought Shaggy Rogers ought to shave for it.[5]
  • Fred's paternal grandfather is Theodore Jones, a retired movie actor who starred in films like The Return of the Monster Hunter. Fred was inspired by him to hunt monsters himself. Fred also imitated the fashion style of his grandfather; it is from him that he learned to wear ascots.[6]
  • Uncle Staxo who runs a wax museum.[7]
  • Uncle Jesse runs a rodeo.[8]
  • Uncle William, Mayor of Lighthouse Harbor, and his wife Aunt Glenda.[9]
  • Cousin Tedd, who is the producer for the TV show, Mystery Macabre.[10]
  • Uncle Ned, who runs a traveling carnival.[11]


  • Walter was an old family friend in Hawaii who was planning on putting up a hotel until the monster Heewanu came to haunt the waves.[12]
