Fred (Holmes) is a rather henpecked husband native to Greenpoint. His yard is unmowed, and he has a hammock pulled between two apple trees. On his day off from work (whatever that is), his wife gives him a list of chores as she goes off to go shopping. Instead, Fred hires Wally Albright, Stymie Beard and the gang to do the chores for him as he naps in his hammock. Pete pulls the lawn mower across a rug while going after a cat and ruins it. Fred wakes up to discover the Rascals trying to fix the rug by gluing it back together and falls onto it.
Fred was played by actor Fred Holmes; his wife was played by Lyle Tayo.
