Frederick Francis "Fred" McCarthy, OFS, 5 September 1918 – 26 October 2009 was an American Franciscan cartoonist, creator of the popular Brother Juniper single-panel comic strip

McCarthy grew up in Boston, Massachusetts and drew cartoons from an early age, some of which he submitted without success to the New Yorker He attended Boston College, but, feeling called to becoming a Franciscan friar, transferred to St Bonaventure College in Olean, New York He entered the Order and was given the religious name of Justin

McCarthy began drawing a cartoon friar while a student there, at first for his own amusement, and then for posters and flyers He named the short, freckled, and ever-cheerful if sometimes naive character "Brother Juniper" in 1942, after the historical Brother Juniper, a companion of St Francis of Assisi McCarthy later served as art director of Friar, a national Franciscan magazine, and this led to the Brother Juniper character coming to the attention of the Publishers Syndicate, a distributor of comic strips

The Brother Juniper strip was published from 1958 until 1989 Running in over 100 American newspapers as well as overseas, Brother Juniper was the only religious-themed comic ever syndicated in daily newspapers internationally McCarthy also created two less-successful religious-themed strips, Sister Suzie about a teaching nun, and Brother Rufus He published these under the pen name "Fred Francis"

McCarthy, a Secular Franciscan from 1938, was ordained as a Catholic priest in 1945 but left the friars and the priesthood in the early 1960s He remained active as a Franciscan, however, resuming his life as a Franciscan tertiary, in which he was active till the end of his life He taught at a number of colleges and universities

McCarthy died on October 26, 2009, in Delray Beach, Florida, survived by his wife Lilly
