  • show Description
  • Fred LeBlanc is a very intelligent and perceptive sixteen year old living in Montreal, Quebec. Fred is very suspicious of all things adult, and he detaches himself from them as much as possible. Fred's life at home with his embarrassing mother, equally crazy father and adopted younger brother from Thailand is shown in great detail in Fred's Head.

    • Fabienne: The madness continues! She told my parents I should stop making horror films!
      Fred: (Imitating Anemone Worrynaut) Young lady there is a risk of social disturbance if these films are shown to students with fragile psyches! Fabienne: True! True! Heh heh!
      (G.G. is trying to cut a sausage with a plastic knife and not succeeding.)
      G.G. The only thing this knife is cutting is my appetite!

    • (Fred is focussing on the puzzle while walking with G.G)
      Fred: Besides, this puzzle sharpens my observation skills. (Fred bumps imto anette and makes her drop her books.)
      Fred: Yeah, sorry buddy. (not knowing it was Anette, Fred keeps on walking.)

    • Penelope: Why don't you invite Jody? All she does on a friday night is sit in her room and cry because she doesn't have a boyfriend.

    • Jody: Anette, Bravo. People who actually find you pretty will love this sort of thing.

    • Anette: Let's see here ( reads script), I've been meaning to talk to you...
      Fred:Huh?
      Anette: Huh?
      Fred: Did you say something?
      Anette: Yes, I said "Huh?"
      Fred: Oh...
      Anette: Huh?
      Fred: I said "Oh"
      Anette: Oh...

    • Fred: G.G, Someday I'd like you to explain to me your obsession with dislocated limbs.

    • G.G.: Hello, do you sell dead animals?

    • George Dugan: Obviously before I build you up, you must first be DESTROYED!
      Fred: Isn't that a little extreme?
      George Dugan: (Mimes a remote control) Put it on MUTE!

    Notes (3)

    • In this episode we are given a much more detailed look into Fred's love for Anette.

    • The scene where Fred grows wings and flies away can be seen as a reference to the ancient story of Icarus, who took his newfound freedom (wings) for granted and flew too close to the sun, just as Fred did. Both characters also fell to their deaths as a result.

    • This episode features a multitude of recollitions from past episodes by various characters. This is much like the old late-in-the-season "clip shows" that many sit-coms like Happy Days or Married With Children. have done over the years. Fred thinks of all the qualities of Anette he finds attractive while a slideshow of clips featuring the two together is shown Fab and Anette think back to when Fred was with Tamara and Fanny Benji thinks of the good times he had with Fred when they were young. G.G. sings a song abotu all the Girls he fell in love with in season 1 Penelope counts down Jody's top 10 cow moments from past episodes, while Jody counts down Penelopie's top 10 airheaded moments/ comments

    Trivia (107)

    • The silly love theme played when Mr. Fairchild was reunited with his monkey Claude. It also played when Fred observed Annette reading her poetry in Ms. Voula's English class.

    • Fred's other stock phrase "I think not!" also shows up in this and every episode following. It's his standard response to suggestions he does not like.

    • Fred usually exclaims "Moldy!" whenever something is not cool.

    • Fred's thought for the day at the end of the episode: "What makes one person sad, makes a shrink quite happy!" (Anemone Worrynaut is seen next to Fred, giggling evily)

    • Two moments that show Fred's interest in Annette happen in this episode:
      1. Fred is in a surreal environment, with floating paintings of Annette. Annette comes out of a painting and kisses Fred.
      2. Fred is at the cafe watching angry people leave the exhibition. Anette, and all of her self portraits begin to cry, flooding the cafe.

    • This episode was originally aired on a Saturday during the first few weeks of the show's run.

    • Fred's thought for the day "Accidents aren't pretty, but it seems we all still want to look!"

    • G.G's Backpack looks like a giant steak.

    • Anemone Worrynaut's appearance can be considered an allusion to two different pop-culture icons: 1. The Oompa-Loompas from Willy Wonka fame due to her diminutive height and her strange white hairdo.

      2. The Guardians of the Universe from the Green Lantern comic book series due to her orange pants, blue skin, white hair, large forehead, white hair and bossy, superior attitude.

    • George Dugan as Captain Splendid is an indirect refernce to the actor Dennis Dugan who played an oddball superhero wannabe called Captain Freedom in a 4 episode arc of Hill Street Blues back in the early 1980s. His look is also like that of Bruce Weitz who played Sgt. Mick Belker who usually wore a ratty old coat with a scarf and a stubbly ratty beard!

    • Taxi Driver: During the conftrontaion with Anemone Worrynaut, she looks at Fred cockeyed and says "Are you talking to me? Are you talking to me?!?!?!" which is a famous line delivered by Robert DeNiro in "Taxi Driver."

    • The female cop that helps bring Madame Butterfly back after she wanders off bears as strong resemblance to Officer Karen Pelly, played by Tara Spencer-Nairn on CTV's Corner Gas.

    • Panook Titouk is a reference to Julia Sweeny's character Pat from the "It's Pat!" skit on Saturday Night Live. The skit involves named Pat (could it be Patrick or Patricia?) someone that was either a very effeminate man or a very mannish woman, but nobody was sure what Pat was gender-wise!

    • This episode starring thousands of squirrels taking over the school is not unlike Alfred Hitchcock's classic movie; "The Birds".

    • After Mr. Sturgeon (St. Jude's principal) has found out that Public Works is going to use dynamite near the St. Jude's High School building, we see during the lead up to a commercial break and during the return from a commercial break several box scenes running parallel of the different characters inside and outside St. Judes while a beeping timer ticks away. This is an homage to commercial break cuts for the hit action show "24."

    • When Fabienne and GG decide to go and rescue Fred, the "wipe" transition and music are reminiscent of the old "Batman" series of the sixties.
