* ColdOpen: The 1994 episodes, where Red would comment on a personality quirk common among most men, ending with "It's not smart or correct, but it's one of the things that makes us what we are." Various other episodes would also open with Red either telling a joke to the audience, or making a quick Handyman Corner-type project.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first two seasons: In season 1, Red is incredibly low-key, and Harold frequently interrupts his stories with scene transitions. It also lacked the "Possum Lodge meeting" which ended every episode from season 2 onwards. Season 2 had a bunch of characters that were never seen in any other season. Neither season had the Expert segment, which would debut in season 3.

Neither season had the Expert segment, which would debut in season 3. Also, Harold's intros of Red in the first few seasons were much longer, and accompanied by the camera panning across various parts of the set. Finally, some early episodes had rural background noise, such as birds and gunshots.

Added DiffLines:

* DaddyDNATest: In one episode, an old rich guy dies, and since he amassed his fortune by [[ADateWithRosiePalms donating to the local sperm bank]], everyone in town gets DNA tested hoping to get a match, and therefore be entitled to the inheritance. Shockingly, ''all'' of the DNA tests turn out to be exactly the same. Incestuous implications aside, this unfortunately only entitles everyone to a few bucks each since the inheritance has to be split so many ways. [[spoiler:It turns out that this was because [[StickyFingers Mike]] stole all the test tubes, so the testers had to use the lids off pickle jars, and simply ended up testing the chemical composition of pickle juice. The reason this matched the old guy's DNA was because [[TheAlcoholic he was always pickled himself]]]].

A SketchComedy show produced by and starring Canadian comic Steve Smith, centered around the members of Possum Lodge, a backwoods hunting camp somewhere in Northern Ontario. It loosely parodies "outdoor" TV shows generally, and the iconic ''Red Fisher Show'' (which ran in Canada from 1968-1989) in particular.

* AudienceParticipation: In later seasons, the studio audience would provide the "three little words men find so hard to say" in "The Experts" sketches. "New Member Night" would also have volunteers from the studio audience play the prospective new Lodge member.


Added DiffLines:

** The new potential Lodge members who appear in "New Member Night" segments (and played by volunteers from the studio audience) never speak.

** This is because Bill is actually [[CanonImmigrant a character named 'Bill from Bala']] that Rick Green originated when he was a member of TheFrantics. His shtick was that sooner or later, he'd end up directing any conversation towards a long-winded discussion of his hometown of Bala, Ontario; this is the real reason that Red didn't bother getting a good mike for his camera.

** In one episode, Red, Dalton, and Mike hurt themselves. Mike goes to a masseuse and feels better, and recommends Red and Dalton go as well, which they first refuse but change their minds once they find out she's attractive. It turns out she's a male undercover cop, and Red and Dalton are {{Squick}}ed, but Mike doesn't care and plans to keep going, since he was the only one going there specifically for treatment and not just to get touched by a pretty girl (although you would think he'd at least be concerned about the cop part).
