2007 - 2011
Fred is 13 years old and has lots of dreams, such as winning over the best-looking girl in school, being the captain of the football team or getting great marks. One day, Red, a broken-down “Reality Enhancement Drone” from outer space, the modern version of Aladdin’s genie, enters his life. Fred, however, does not know that this incredible machine is in fact out of order and will only make it even more difficult to achieve his dreams. But none of that matters, because Fred is a great guy, full of crazy ideas, unfailing optimism and incredible tenacity to put them into practice.
2012 - present
‘Lucky Fred’ follows the comic adventures of Fred, an ordinary 13-year-old boy who accidentally became the owner of a super-powered, shape-shifting robot who can turn into any object Fred can dream of with a simple voice command. The robot’s real name is Anihilator 9-0-9-0-9-0-niner, but he answers to the name Fred gave him — “Friday”. Before he veered off course, Friday was sent to the Earth intended for Fred’s new next-door neighbour Braianna, a weird girl from his class whose actual identity is Agent Brains — a highly skilled member of a secret, intergalactic security force called ‘the Protectors’. Brains are the Protector assigned to the Earth, and routinely gets called to save the Earth before an alien attack becomes public knowledge. Fred, Friday and Brains are a trio of loyal friends who have fun together, navigate middle-school together, and save the planet together. While Fred and Friday are always finding the fun in everyday life, Brains strives to keep her identity secret and the aliens’ bottoms kicked.
- Fred is so lucky. He has his own personal robot that will transform on command into anything he can think of: boxing gloves when the school bully picks a fight; a jet pack, even a translator for girl talk. Whatever Fred needs, his new best friend, a shape-changing robot named Friday can turn himself into. But Friday was not supposed to be a gift from the sky, he was supposed to belong to Fred's neighbor, secret Agent Brains, who works for the intergalactic safety organization called The Protectors. Brains disguises herself as a regular awkward girl named Braianna, while saving the world from alien invasions, escaped bug populations, Sewer Bears, and other mysteries. It sure would be easier if she had her robot, but now he only answers Fred's voice commands. Together, Brains, Fred and Friday work as a team taking on the challenges of alien invaders, and worse-- junior high!
- The fun adventures of Fred, a very lucky guy! Fred is an ordinary boy of fifteen/thirteen with luck, so much that art robot falls from space with him to be his friend and to fulfill their desires. The robot responds to the name of Friday and was sent to Earth to serve Braianna, Fred's neighbor, a girl of the same class that hides a big secret ... She is, in fact, the Agent Brains, a member of the intergalactic secret guards security force. Fred, Friday and Brains are a trio of friends having fun and going to school while ... trying to save the planet!
Lucky Fred was first debuted by Icon Animation at Cartoon Forum 2007. Aimed at kids aged 6 to 12 years as a 2D animated sitcom that combines the everyday with the extraordinary.
One day, RED, a "Reality Enhancement Drone," falls from outer space and crashes through a 13-year old Fred's bedroom ceiling. From then on, Fred has an incredible "Aladdin's lamp" to grant his every wish. If Fred needs to pass an exam, RED conjures up an intelligent pen, capable of writing by itself; if Fred wants to win the girl of his dreams, the robot gives him chewing gum with the qualities of a love potionl and if Fred wants to be a football star, RED gives him shoes that run and shoot like a champion.
However, the Reality Enhancement Drone is faulty and instead of helping Fred, each magical object creates an amusing chain of unexpected complications. Luckily Fred has his two secret weapons—his optimism and his wacky inventiveness—to help him out.
