Ranger Gord's Educational Films, retitled Ranger Gord's Wilderness Safety Tips in Season 13, are a series of short animated cartoons created, written, produced, directed, animated and voiced by Ranger Gord.
In these cartoons, Gord appears as a muscle-bound superhero-type, and Red and Harold are pictured as a possum and a beaver, respectively. In most cartoons, they are also referred to as "Little Red" and "Little Harold". In "Rock Eggs", Dalton Humphrey and Mike Hamar also make animated appearances as a bear and a raccoon, respectively.
Each cartoon deals with some purportedly educational concept, such as finding one's way out of a forest ("A Sign") or defending one's self from a sasquatch ("Big Foot Defence"). However, virtually every cartoon takes a comedic turn as Gord shows off his enormous ego, usually at Red and Harold's expense.
A total of 23 cartoons were produced between the ninth and thirteenth seasons.
