We used to recover from hangovers watching that show. For some reason it was on a continuous loop at school.

Red Green was awesome.

Anyone else ever have the urge to take a mid 80's dodge van and paint it like a possum?

Red Green and Black

I definitely remember that great show! I and my co-workers were such fans that we donated our time to WTTW when they were doing a fund-raiser for that show. We were those phone operators you see taking the donations. Red was there himself. Real kool guy. I miss that show. Great humor and very creative.

My neighbor did that! Next time he has it out I will take a pic of it.

It all goes back together the way it came apart...unless it came apart at redline!

When I was livin' in Waukegan, we'd catch it on Channel 10 every Thursday night at 8:30 (Milwaukee PBS station).

You can buy the series on DVD from Amazon
