Ascot or not[edit]

However number 6 has the following statement

Fred's outfit was given an update, with the removal of his ascot the most noticeable change.

Fred Jones doesn't formally appear in the movie "Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back"==[edit]

The charactor "Fred Jones" did not actually appear in the movie "Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back". The movie briefly alluded to the cast of Scooby Doo during a scene where actors were similarily dressed to the charactors and were driving a van very similiar to the Mystery Machine. However, none of the charactors appearing to portray the Scooby Doo cast were referred to by name and during the ending credits, the actor Marc Blucas who was similiarily dressed to Fred Jones was credit as being "The Guy". The IMDB site for this movie( not credit any actor as a character named "Fred". —Preceding unsigned comment added by DivaNtrainin (talkcontribs) 06:42, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

Fred in Italy was Fred. Never heard Alan! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:41, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Fred and Vietnam[edit]

Does anyone know why Fred never had to serve in Vietnam. Or indeed if he did.

This is an important question which was never addressed in the series. Was he a conscientious objector, or did he have health issues that were never disclosed. The reasons why he was not drafted form an important part of understanding the character and I would be interested to hear the views of other experts and fans. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:32, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
