A T-Shirt image with Fred

Fred the Wood Tick is a major character from the later years of Over the Hedge.


Fred doesn't seem to have much of a personality, but he sucks blood from anyone akin to a leech.


A running gag in the strip is that Fred only appears as a black dot, and always has a box with an arrow pointing to him stating, "Fred the Wood Tick!".
