Smith initially made Red Green's personality for his 1979–1985 sketch parody arrangement 'Smith and Smith'.

The sketch was a spoof of the long-running Canadian outdoor show. Called 'The Red Fisher Show' (1968–1989), the series starred B.H. "Red" Fisher and would feature different guests.

In the usual episode, Red and the rest would show quiet movies of their fishing trips with critique at "Gossip Lodge". The character additionally showed up in 'Me And Max' and 'The Comedy Mill' before turning into the focal point of his own arrangement.

'The Red Green Show' cast includes Red Green (leader of Possum Lodge), Harold Green (Red's nephew), Dalton Humphrey (Red's best friend), Mike Hamar (a career criminal), Winston Rothschild III (owner of Rothschild's Sewage and Septic Sucking Services), Bill Smith, Ranger Gord (local forest ranger), Edgar Montrose (Possum Lodge's explosives enthusiast), Hap Shaughnessy (water-taxi captain), Ed Frid (an animal control officer), Buzz Sherwood (local bush pilot), Bob Stuyvesant (worker at Ministry of Natural Resources), Glen Brackston (an employee of Brackston's Marina), Dwight Cardiff, Dougie Franklin (an American immigrant who drives a huge monster truck), Arnie Dogan (accident-prone roofer), Kevin Black (yuppie developer), and Charlie Farquharson (charter member) as the main characters of 'The Red Green Show'.
