Up until Season 8, at the beginning of every episode, Harold Green would introduce Red Green in some way and always say afterward, "...your host and hero, my uncle, Red Green!"

For the first three seasons, the openings were always long as the camera panned through Possum Lodge en route to the main lobby as Harold introduced Red.

But from the fourth season onward, the camera would already be in the lodge with Harold there. From Season 5 onward, Harold would first say, "It's The (New) Red Green Show!" before introducing Red.

Season 1Edit

Episode Comment
He-Man Contest "Once again, it's time for the show that everybody's talking about! The show that caught the nation's attention and it's at the top of the critics' list. Well, I didn't say which list, so it's really not false advertising, okay? It's "The Red Green Show"! And now, please give a warm welcome for your host with the most, and my uncle..."
Wind-Powered Boat "We are rolling and recording! Hit the lights and turn on your VCRs and sit back. It's the show that critics couldn't be done, wouldn't be done and– and– and shouldn't be done... {low voice} If they've heard us, I just want you to know that we've said things like that... {normal voice} But we're here to prove them critics wrong. And that's a (?) to do, granted. And here's the proof himself, the man of the half hour..."
Gun Powder Shakes "We're rolling? Well– Aw, c'mon! Next time, tell me or something! Thought you guys were professionals. Okay, ladies and gentlemen, it's time again to welcome the world's greatest woodsman... Well, okay, unless, of course, we're counting Fess Parker. But he's the greatest storyteller since Will Rogers died, that's for sure. And he's, like, the world's best uncle. No offense, Uncle Jared. But anyway, here he is..."

Episode Comment
Bear!!! "Gather 'round your television sets, and make sure they're turned on, because this is the wildest wildlife show on the air! Bringing you thrills, chills, spills, and a really nice view of our hallway right around... now! This is the show that dares to be different, only because we can't afford to be the same. And here he is, the man who's the most different of them all, the star of the show and, through a cruel twist of DNA fate, my uncle. Here he is, the legal owner of 'The Red Green Show', ladies and gentlemen..."
The Broken Water Pump "And now, it's time for a totally different show! A show based on the assumption that no matter who you are or how busy you are, you have at least one half-hour to waste, and, well, here's a man who's wasted at least half a century, my uncle, which is obviously the downside of working with a severely limited gene pool. But he's more than a woodsman, he's a coulds-man, and, in most cases, a shoulds-man. Anyway, here he is..."

Green Green "And now it's time for the show about the greatest Canadian folk hero since Uncle Joe on Petticoat Junction! Well, you know, of course, he wasn't Canadian, so that's not fair. Of course, no one even cares about my uncle of his complexion, so..."

Season 8Edit

Episode Comment
Harold's Leaving "And now, here's the man who made television what it is today. Your host, your hero, my uncle. The man who brought the Great Outdoors indoors and left a lot of dirty footprints doing it. The man who is here now! He's the last of his breed, but certainly not the least of his breed. He's the one who has that vision. Leaders don't have it often, but this leader does, especially when he has a half-case of beer or so. The man who natives call 'Dances with Duct Tape'. A man whose shoes will never be filled, unless of course he's walking on sand without socks. The man who set out to prove the critics wrong! The man who set out to prove the major networks wrong, and all their advisers! The man who set out to prove that the- the general viewing audience is wrong! And he went out to prove that the higher educational authorities were wrong, and the mainstream psychiatric profession– {gets interrupted by Red}"
