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!

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 »

Quotes

Red Green: [poem] It is winter. We hitched the horse up to the sleigh, like Grandfather used to do. Over hills and through the dells we'd glide for an hour or two. And soon my ears are brittle and my mouth is frozen shut. My eyes are locked wide open and all I see is the horse's butt.

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 »

Duct Tape Delight!
12 September 2001 | by (Tampa, FL) – See all my reviews

Okay, I'll be honest. The FIRST time I saw this show, well, I thought very little of it. It had the look of a late 1960's American variety show AND it was on a PBS station, and I caught it during the seemingly never ending fund raising season. So, along with comedy I didn't find funny, I got folks wanting money for more of the same.

Fast forward to 2000, and a bored me sitting on the sofa with nothing to watch on a nasty Saturday afternoon. I landed on and episode where Red is cutting two Dodge mini-vans in half to make one big van, and putting the halves together with, yes, duct tape. My wife and I were hooked.

I miss Harold, Red's cousin, can never get enough of Ranger Gord, think Mike, Dalton Humphries, and Winston have their moments, and wait for my weekly dose of "The Possum Lodge Word Game", and of course "Handyman's Corner"

This is a show that must be seen more than once to really enjoy. If the main cast doesn't get you, wait for an episode with Ed Frid, or the explosives expert, Edgar K. B. Montrose
