The Red Green Wiki

Talking Animals is a recurring segment of The Red Green Show, in which Red visits and is visited by the acting animal control officer in Possum Lake, Garth Harble during the Fifth Season, and Ed Frid from season 8 on. Garth's segments are usually shot outdoors at or near his house, and they most often involve Garth getting hurt in some way and uttering his catch-phrase, "Another super day." Ed's segments are shot inside Possum Lodge and feature a different animal in each segment. Ed introduces the animal demonstrating his extreme fear of animals in the process, and in almost every case something goes comically wrong, causing him to panic.

Talking Animals ran during season 5 and from season 8 to fifteen. It was originally called "You and Your Animal".
