The Red Green Wiki

Adventures With Bill (simply Adventures after the eighth season) is the second longest-running main segment on The Red Green Show, next to Handyman Corner. This segment is presented as a grainy, black-and-white home movie showing a simple plot acted out by Bill Smith and Red Green (and later other characters), with a strong emphasis on slapstick comedy. The home movie is always narrated by Red as though he's recounting the events of the film after the fact.

Many Adventures, particularly those featuring Bill, end up with him in some strange predicament, such as being flattened by a steam roller wheel or a wine press. He always springs back in the next episode, however. This segment also features two running gags: Bill frequently pulls large or random things out of his overalls, and the Possum Van is frequently damaged in various ways (most often having one or both of its rear-view mirrors knocked off).

In the first three seasons, this segment starred only Bill and Red. Starting in the fourth season, Harold would occasionally join in.

Bill disappeared from Adventures in the ninth season when his actor (Rick Green) left the show. Walter and other characters took over for him, and Red was not always present in the Adventures himself (though he still narrated them). Bill would return in the thirteenth season, starring alongside Walter and other cast members until the final episode.
