The Red Green Wiki

Male Call is a recurring segment on The Red Green Show, in which Harold reads letters from fans about the show and Red responds to them by talking to the camera though in some cases, he doesn't get that far. Beginning in Season 4[needs verification] , Harold begins the segment by saying "It's Male Call!" and ringing a bell loudly.

The segment gets its name from its first-season appearances, where it was introduced with a crudely-constructed computer-generated title using the word "Male". There has been no indication in any later episodes that the title was ever changed to "Mail Call", so the name stuck. Beginning in Season 3 and ran until the end of the series, Male Call was replaced by The Experts, which also features letters from fans. However, most letters in The Experts ask for advice of various kinds, while Male Call letters tend to focus more on the show in both good and bad ways. This segment ran from Seasons 1-6, and was dropped when the show moved to CBC in 1997.

It is not known how many of the letters read in either of these segments were real.
