    createjs adding mc to stage

      Hi I used to do quite a bit of as3 word but not for quite some time (guess why???).  I am now having a play with flash pro6 and the toolkit for create js. I have to say I worked through the platypus example and it kinda left out all the things I wanted to know like the real easy stuff! So for example I want to add a mc to the stage with js --- how? The as bit works ... but I tried various combinations of

      stop(); var fredd = new fred(); stage.addChild(fredd); fredd.x=100; fredd.y=100; /* js this.stop(); var fredd = new fred(); this.stage.addChild(fredd); */

       

      but I just kept getting an comment about empty symbols and a helpful reminder about the timeline starting at 1. I feel sure this is very easy,  but I can't figure it out! Perhaps there is a real beginners resource somewhere that I am missing? Thanks
