Steady Freddy
"My FRiend FReddy, wears and aFRo. He loves FRankfurters and FRench FRies!"

Ang animated film segment na ito ay designed and directed by talented filmmaker and Caldecott award winning author na si Gerald McDermott. Ginawa niya ito for The Electric Company noong taong 1971, bago niya ilabas ang kanyang unang children's book, Anansi The Spider. Noong una mong napanuod ito, naniwala ka na nakakatakot ang pelikula na pinapanuod ni Freddy. Mas lalo kang natakot nung napansin mo na puro mga mamaw ang mga katabi ni Freddy sa movie theater! Pero matapos mong mapanuod ito ng ilang beses, nasanay ka na at tinawanan mo ang mga itsura ng mga mukha ng monsters sa audience.
