Storyline

Red Green is a bearded Canadian carpenter who's really handy with his hands, and can find great uses for duct tape. He hosts "The Red Green Show", where he and his nerdy nephew, Harold, teach the viewers how to make excellent and useful crafts, as well as give marriage advice, from their home at Possum Lodge. Also, he plays games with Dalton Humphries where he must try to get him to guess a word by giving examples of it or saying a sentence it would be used in. Red also appears in a black-and-white series with the bungling Bill Smith were they show young viewers things like how to hunt and the existence of gravity. Other characters who frequently appear are the deprived Ranger Gord, who lives on top of a 100-foot tower on top of a 200-foot hill, has been guarding the watch tower for 16 years without a vacation and has no friends; the golf-obsessed loser Bob Stuyvestant who knows nothing about women; Buzz Sherwood, a daredevil pilot; and Winston Rothschild III, a loyal!

Trivia

Bernice (Red's wife) is mentioned in almost every episode, but has only appeared onscreen once - and even then, we only see her hand and part of her arm (peeking around from behind the front door of their house). See more »

Goofs

In season 7, Ranger Gord's tower falls down and Gord appears in the Lodge for the first time. He also appears in the Lodge during season 8. However, in Season 9, Gord is back in his tower, without any mention of leaving it (or the tower falling down). See more »

Crazy Credits

During the closing credits, the Possum Lodge members gather in a basement, say the Possum Oath (Quondo omni flunkus moratati) and, in later seasons, The Man's Prayer, before Red makes some opening comments to the men based on the content of the episode. See more »

You don't have to be Canadian to like Red Green...
13 June 2002 | by (Bedford, PA) – See all my reviews

...but it helps to know what the "Canadian Content Law" and other Canadian references mean. Lucky me, I am and I do.

Even so, The Red Green Show is a human cartoon with all of the pitfalls, screw-ups, lapses of judgement and fun that one could expect from The Simpsons, Warner Brothers and Family Guy.

Besides that, Red Green is a parody of everything that men are expected to be by either gender. Red's Handyman's Corner shows a man more obsessed with getting the job done quickly and cheaply, and have his project stay together just long enough to be effective.

And while his projects somehow survive, nothing else seems to fall the way of the gang at Possum Lake. Their get-rich-now schemes verify the wisdom of the adage "Those who strive to create a fool-proof plan too often underestimate the ingenuity and persistence of fools".

Red may keep his stick on the ice, but his head and those of his friends, God only knows where they've gone.
