Fred the Sentient Lamppost is a character who made a cameo appearance in Darkwing Duck #17 in Dangerous Currency Part 2. He threatened Launchpad McQuack and the kids (Huey Dewey and Louie, Webby Vanderquack, Gosalyn Waddlemeyer Mallard and Honker Muddlefoot) until Gosalyn threw a rock at him and broke his lightbulb. The only thing that we know about Fred at this point is he's not sure how he works. Whether the slime in St. Canard brought him to life or not is unknown. He is the only character in the storyline that didn't originally appear on either TV show (Duck Tales or Darkwing Duck).
