The Red Green Wiki

Red's Campfire Songs is a recurring segment on The Red Green Show in which Red Green and his nephew Harold perform short songs around a campfire at night, which is set inside Possum Lodge, often touching on various aspects of middle-aged life. Red plays a guitar and sings, and Harold usually provides some form of percussion or accompaniment, and occasionally sings along. The segment debuted in Season 1, and ran until Season 8, and was resurrected for one later special.

Production Notes[]

According to RedGreenJrTV, during the production of Duct Tape Forever, Steve Smith suffered an injury to his hand that rendered him unable to play the guitar anymore. While the segment had been discontinued before the filming of the movie, this incident explains why, with the exception of Cheesy the Christmas Rat, the campfire songs were not brought back to the show when Harold returned.
