Fred Scoblete (Writer) Fred Scoblete is quoted as saying " I was born too late to appreciate Bing Crosby , too early to get into Rap, but just in time to delight in the Beatles." He remembers a childhood that he described his family as being "so poor that the only game I could afford was 'Connect 3'". He joined a "boy's club" (a gang) in his early twenties and made the mistake of volunteering to drive the get-a-way car when he couldn't even start one. In prison Fred ran a small theater group called "Freddy's Fellow Felons" and each year they put on a comedy Christmas show using the 3 Magi like the 3 Stooges. When Fred got out of prison he met his future collaborator, Rod Gill, and they struck it off grandly. And the rest, as they say, was history. In retrospect, fred says his my two greatest faults have been 'being overweight and, at times...a liar.'
