Chef Fred is a character that was introduced in Pingu in the City.
Chef Fred owns a restaurant franchise that is very well known in the big city.
His first appearance was in Pingu Cooks Up A Treat!. Pingu stops by a restaurant and decides to have a look. He sees that only one penguin works here, being Chef Fred with many customers waiting for their food order. Pingu asks to help, and after getting a good look at his enthusiasm, he agrees and Pingu acts as a waiter for the other penguins. Afterwards, Pingu asks Chef Fred what he can do next, so he tells him that the dishes need cleaning, but Pingu smells Chef Fred making some soup, and in turn he shows him the way he makes his soup. Ecstatic, Pingu asks to help but he tells him to do the dishes, making Pingu disappointed.
While Pingu was cleaning the dishes, he sees Chef Fred getting compliments while working, so Pingu, wanting to get some praise, imagines becoming a chef. While daydreaming, the sink became overflown with bubbles, and after a slip up, Pingu flings a condiment shaker into the soup and immediately goes over to the pot. Deciding to do what's supposedly right, Pingu creates his own custom soup, but Chef Fred walks in while Pingu is nearly finished with the soup. Seeing all the mess, Fred orders Pingu to clean it up, but while Pingu walks off, he notices the soup and gives it a taste, and loves it. He asks Pingu if he was the one who made it, but Pingu just looks at him meekly.
He & Pingu serve it to a costumer, who sniffs it thinking it's just alright, making Pingu sad again, but Chef Fred tells the others in the place to look for themselves. The costumer tastes it, and think's it's absolutely fantastic, Pingu reacts in a state of shock as the others in the place applaud to him.
Fred is a kind and easy going chef. He loves having help from Pingu, but he can be annoyed if things go wrong.
He is a tall penguin that wears a toque and a red neckerchief.
