Fred at the Fairground is the fifth episode of Ferry Boat Fred. It first aired on the ABC on 10 April 1992.
Fred was feeling lonely one night until he found some children who had missed their last ferry. He took them to the fairground where there were many colourful lights. Fred still felt lonely even when watching the fairground. Fortunately for Fred, the owner, a penguin, has a problem. The swing boat named Eric had a cold, so Fred had to fill in for him by getting onto the swing by a crane. Fred's captain and Pete, who were looking for Fred, went on the fairground too. When it was closing time, the crane put Fred back into the harbour, and Fred, his captain, and Pete went back to Wallaby Wharf.
