The Red Green Show: The Toddlin’ Years is also mentioned in an Acorn Media wholesalers’ listing. I don’t think the title has been formally announced at this point. The November 2 street date, of course, is subject to change.
The Red Green Show “rebooted” itself as The New Red Green Show for its three seasons on Global. Despite the fact that The Red Green Show had to pay its way on Global, to the point of selling its own advertising, the Global era is when the show started to take off. Despite the modifier “new,” The New Red Green Show‘s formulae and running jokes were by and large set by 1994.
The Red Green Show: The Toddlin’ Years is formatted like The Red Green Show: The Infantile Years, with three 24-episode seasons on a total of nine discs. The price is the same as The Infantile Years – $99.99 US/$124.99 CDN. As I said in my piece on The Red Green Show: The Infantile Years, this release is just for the hardcores.
I honestly don’t get the “Infantile/Toddlin’” way of selling the early years of The Red Green Show. The show’s format never underwent any major changes over 15 seasons. Who’s the target market for The Red Green Show: The Toddlin’ Years? Are the hardcore fans that snobby that $100 US for three seasons of television is acceptable? I don’t get it. I blame PBS for this.
