Phred was originally a mascot for "Phantastic Pickles." He was bored with his life, being printed on pickle jars, until a major event occurred. His pickle jar rolled off of a supermarket shelf and Phred was introduced to the real world. He saw other pickle flavors (sweet pickles, dill pickles, and chunky beef pickles) and was astounded at how large his surroundings were. However, Phred was soon without a home. He searched for a place to think and soon was teleported by a young girl to the dot of Noggin.com. From that moment on, Phred hosted his television show from inside his dot.
Phred is mostly a yellow-green color. He has a large nose and two small, black eyes.
Phred appears in every episode of Phred on Your Head Show and The URL with Phred Show.
