Season 1 - 1991Edit

Consisted of 24 half-hour episodes airing on CHCH-TV in Hamilton, Ontario. Established the format that would serve the show for most of its run, including Handyman Corner and Adventures With Bill segments. The biggest difference from later seasons was Harold Green's tendency to purposely cut off Red as he tried to tell his stories.

Season 2 - 1992Edit

Season 2 consisted of 24 half-hour episodes, but the format of the show was changed to more closely resemble a traditional sitcom. This is the only season in which this occurred - according to RedGreenJrTV, the changes were ordered by the TV network, and the producers were unhappy with these changes. After the season concluded, the network canceled the show, forcing the producers to find a new network for Season 3. Consequently, this was the last season of The Red Green Show to air on CHCH-TV.

Season HighlightsEdit

  • This is the last season to air on CHCH-TV.
  • The opening credits looks similar to version 2 of Season 1, and showing a bird flying at sunset.

  • This is the last season where Red and Harold wore red suspenders, and where Red's voice was softer.
  • The Lodge Meeting became a regular feature at the end of each episode, before the meeting took place during the closing credits.

Season 7 - 1997Edit

This season introduced a new segment called If It Ain't Broke, You're Not Trying.
