Friedrich the Turtle

Although Fred the turtle looks adorable, innocent, and like the cherished best friend to a sweet ginger-haired girl, he is actually mentally insane.
Fred was an army psychiatric patient who had been subjected to violent, hellish, torturous behavior-modification experiments.
Sometime in 1962, he managed to escape from the metal box the army kept him in. After living on the lamb, he eventually settled into a life of isolation, hiding from authorities deep inside the long-forgotten forest east of the mountains.
Fred is a prolific writer. Spending upwards of 18 hours a day manically hammering his short, club-like feet into a vintage typewriter pounding out one sinister manifesto after another.
A series of his earliest works are credited for inspiring the Unabomber.
Chubby Angels came to founder Leonard C. Anderson while driving through his hometown on a beautiful summer's day.
He suddenly realized you don't see kids outside anymore; they're all inside getting diabetes.
Chubby Angels want to see a world where seeing a kid outside is common and not the equivalent to spotting something you don't see very often, like a Bald Eagle.
“I was a fat kid in the '80s and '90s when there weren't very many of us. We were alone, scared, and hungry for snacks.”
— LEONARD C. ANDERSON, FOUNDER
According to researchers:
92% of children polled in the '90s knew what a pie chart was. That number dropped in the 2000s to 81 percent. And in 2018, when children were asked, "what is a pie chart?" They responded, "did you say pies?"
