Dr. Fredric was a child psychologist. He wrote a book called "The Innocent Seduced", which warned of the dangers of super hero worship. Glorious Godfrey quoted extensively from his book in his show.
Dr. Fredric and his book are an obvious nod to Fredric Wertham and his book, The Seduction of the Innocent. Wertham wrote several books and essays about potential psychological dangers to children, including hot topics such as violence and racial segregation, but is best remembered for his criticism on popular mass media.
