Fred "Freddy/Freddie" Jones is the leader of Mystery Incorporated in the Scooby-Doo animated franchise. His voice was originated by Frank Welker.

Throughout the years, Hanna-Barbera, Cartoon Network, and Warner Bros. Animation, as well as book and video game publishers, have conceived several incarnations, which don't always fit together because new writers have come on board and disregarded what has come before or there has been a complete reboot, but the general concept has been the same, perhaps except for DC Comics' radically altered Scooby Apocalypse.

In the Warner Bros. Serververse in Space Jam: A New Legacy, the gang (based on their SCOOB! designs), arrive at the basketball game between the Tune Squad and the Goon Squad in the Mystery Machine, then watch from outside the van. Mystery Inc., like all the other IPs, has no particular preference and just reacts to whatever is happening.
