The Red Green Wiki

The following is a complete list of the characters on The Red Green Show.

Main characters[]

The show's principal characters are Red Green, Harold Green and Bill Smith. Beyond those characters, the designation "main character" is somewhat arbitrary, since characters tended to come and go throughout the show's span. Characters appearing in this list were designated "main" characters because of their long tenure on the show and their involvement in the main plot segments, particularly in later seasons.
