I just found this in a word document, and thought you guys might enjoy it.

A few years ago, my wife Marissa and I had a joint assignment in a college creative writing class. Basically, we had to choose a minor character, or group of characters, in a movie or TV show, and find or invent 100 "facts" about them. Naturally, we chose Fred Huggins and the Boolies.

Here's what we came up with:

50 Things About Fred Huggins

1. He is an older man.
2. He has gray hair.
3. He lives on the set of his TV show.
4. There is always a fine line between him being a human and a puppet run by the “real” Fred Huggins.
5. He likes to write songs.
6. He loves to sing.
7. He lives with The Boolies.
8. He thinks the The Boolies are his friends.
9. He is a mix between Pee-Wee Herman and Mr. Rogers.
10. He actually escaped the mental home, and is on the run, they just never noticed, and neither did he.
11. He is indeed single.
12. He always wears a yellow sweater.
13. He is from a city in Ohio.
14. His favorite color is yellow as seen from his sweater.
15. He loves candy, though you never see him eat it, he just talks about how much he loves it.
16. He always has “buggy” / large eyes.
17. His eyes are bright blue.
18. He was blonde until his hair turned gray.
19. His favorite animal is the kitty.
20. He once loved a woman named Silver, but she was murdered, and many with peripheral knowledge of the incident suspect that he killed her.
21. He loves the outdoors, he believes that he is outside all the time, when he is in fact always on the stage.
22. He name is short for Fredrickson.
23. He is afraid of the dark.
24. He loves kids, though he’s never met any… thank god.
25. His songs are very short and repetitive.
26. He thinks his mustache is named Colonel Fubb.
27. His favorite food is oxygen molecules.
28. His favorite song is “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” because he likes peaches.
29. His favorite movie is Star Wars, because he likes the scene where Han Solo says “Everything's perfectly all right now. We're fine. We're all fine here now, thank you. How are you?” because it makes him feel like Han cares about him.
30. He jumped off the roof at age five believing he could “fly like Wilma” as he puts it. He woke up in the mental institution and hasn’t been the same since.
31. Whenever the Boolies switch places, Fred instinctively does the show with his back facing the camera.
32. He was born with nine fingers on his left hand, but they were blown off in a fireworks accident.
33. His mother was a Denny’s waitress in constant debt.
34. His father was an electronics salesman at Circuit City.
35. He has no brothers or sisters.
36. He has worn the same pair of pants every day for fifteen years, but he does get them washed occasionally.
37. He has an irrational fear of hats.
38. Whenever he hears the words “William Shakespeare” his trained Pavlovian response is “Oh, what a wonderful man.”
39. One time, laboring under the misapprehension that he was a chicken, he wandered into a Popeye’s and said to a patron, “Oh wouldn’t it be nice if you ate me?” The punch in the nose that followed caused him to permanently lose his sense of smell.
40. He got sued by his hometown’s Board Of Education when he said, in a televised song, that the kangaroo was a type of insect. The matter was settled out of court.
41. He once shaved himself completely bald for no reason at all.
42. He thinks “bad” is a swear word.
43. He doesn’t like to blink because he’s “afraid he’ll miss something extra special.”
44. He used to hang out with the guys in Radiohead before they were famous, and co-wrote an untitled song of theirs that they ended up not recording.
45. He thinks Funkytown is a real place.
46. His lawyer, by an astounding coincidence, is also named Fred Huggins.
47. He owns over two hundred ukuleles.
48. He only wears women’s underwear.
49. He once accidentally swallowed a spider while sleeping.
50. His birthday is September 12.

I love the show! My favorite episode is the Bad Influence episode because it had Barenaked Ladies on it and they are like my third favorite band! Also you get to see Al dip his arms in melted chocolate!

I'm sure this was a typo and it was supposed to read "Bill MUMY."
