No that was erroneously reported in some news articles.
The word from Mike Clattenburg on the end of the showhttp://www.trailerparkboys.org/forums/index.php/topic,9314.msg183012.html#msg183012Why did Season 6 only have 6 episodes?
Because they had to film the movie and Season 6 that summer, they did not have the time to make more episodes.
For a list and summary of previous episodes check here:http://www.showcase.ca/tpb/season7.aspx
(If you scroll over Episode Guide on the left you get a list of other seasons than just season 7).Why weren't Cory and Trevor in season 7?
Cory and Michael decided to move on and were kind enough to explain their reasoning to us here at the Org

Again thanks guys and we wish you the best in your future endeavors.In the movie what is the song that plays when Ricky, Julian and Bubbles enter the 'Gentlemen's Club' for the first time? Its not on the soundtrack.
The song is "(It )Doesn't really matter" by Canadian group Platinum Blonde. They were big here in the 80's.
The songs on the soundtrack are all Canadian. More info on the soundtrack can be found herehttp://www.trailerparkboys.org/forums/index.php?topic=6185.0
Check this thread for more songs that were part of the movie soundtrack but did not make it onto the soundtrack CDhttp://www.trailerparkboys.org/forums/index.php?topic=7007.0Who is Reveen?
Peter Reveen, the internationally renowned theatrical hypnotist. Reveen had been quite active and knowledgeable in the world of magic and had produced and starred in his own widely acclaimed illusion shows.
)Why do people call Ricky Reveen?
The same hairdo
. Reveen put on many shows in the Maritimes while the TPB were growing up. TV commercials would often air for "The man they call Reveen."Is Sunnyvale a real place?
No. Where is the trailer park?
The show was shot in a real trailer park the first four seasons.
Season 1 was filmed in Sackville.
Season 2 was filmed in Dartmouth, by the Tuft's Cove Generating Station
(You can often see the 3 red and white stacks in the background)
Season 3 was filmed in Timberlea
Season 4 was filmed in Eastern Passage
All four of these were existing trailer parks in the Halifax-Dartmouth area of Nova Scotia, an East coast province of Canada.
For Season 5 and beyond they bought a plot of land and brought in some trailers to use as their own "trailer park" set. It is located in Cole Harbour, just outside of Dartmouth. Cole Harbour is where Mike Clattenburg, JP Tremblay and Robb Wells are from. It is also the hometown of the captain of the Stanley Cup champions Pittsburgh Penguins Sidney Crosby. The set is closed to the public. Update...the trailers are now gone from the set.Who is that guy that yells "What in the Fuck"
That is the voice of Mike Smith (Bubbles). They first recorded him screaming that in the original TPB movie, where he played the sound man that carried the boom mike, and have used that track throughout the show. In season 4 ep 2 they introduced him as the character called Donnie, but Ricky called him Danny (he is Ricky remember). Donnie can he be heard screaming various hilarious things in the background throughout the show. Where can I find the short film "One Last Shot"
One Last Shot is not available for purchase, nor can it be downloaded, hopefully it will be made available sometime in the future.http://www.trailerparkboys.org/forums/index.php?topic=329.0
The original black & white movie that inspired the showTrailer Park Boys
and named Trailer Park Boys is not available on DVD yet either. It can be downloaded at such places as www.digitaldistractions.org
, just do a search for Trailer Park Boys.Episodes can also downloaded from such places as www.digitaldistractions.orgWhere can I find the short film The Cart Boy
It's on disk # 2 of the Season 1-2 dvd set. Just maneuver your cursor until you can click on the shopping cart on the special features menu and there you will find the cart boy. It was something filmed after the original movie and before the TV series. It was the first time we saw the Bubbles character although in that short he was not called Bubbles and JP and Robb played different characters as well. What is the make and the year of the Shitmobile and Lahey's car?
If you listen to the commentary on the DVD, S1 E3, the very first commentary, you will hear Clattenburg say that the shitmobile is a 1975 New Yorker
. It is actually his car and that they abused it to make it look like that. Lahey's car is a 1977 New Yorker, and is actually owned by Robb Wells.
They got another Yorker for the Christmas episode, and abused that one so that it looked like the shitmobile as well.What is that song playing in the background when the boys are stoned in Season 6 Episode 6?
That is Any Sense of Time written Mike O'Neill and performed by the Inbreds.
Mike O'Neill is the TPB sound mixer, here is an interesting thread about him and Mike Clattenburghttp://www.trailerparkboys.org/forums/index.php?topic=4464.0"What song was that playing in Cyrus' Car?",
"Who did that blues music when they were cooking the chicken fingers?"

As well as
Dutch Mason, The Prime Minister of the Blues, music was featured in Season 4 Ep 7. For info on him and Rick Jeffery...http://www.trailerparkboys.org/forums/index.php?topic=407.0Who played the pedal steel tracks in the Christmas special.
Cape Breton blues guitar man John Campbelljohn played the Theme for the Christmas special and Away in a Manger in the church scene. Campbelljohn couldn't be on the show, he had to play a gig at Bearly's in Halifax. Dave Chisholm, key grip on the show and also an accomplished musician, filled in and played the pedal steel in the church scene, but Campbelljohn's pre-recorded track is what we hear. What is Lahey talking about when he mentions "the LC"?
In Nova Scotia liquor and beer is sold by provincially owned stores know as the NSLC, which can stand for the Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation, or as more commonly referred to the Nova Scotia Liquor Commission.Is the marijuana field they use in season 4 real?
No they shot that in a hemp field in Woodstock New Brunswick. For more infohttp://www.trailerparkboys.org/forums/index.php?topic=3539.0
For people outside Canada:Red Green
is a Canadian TV show, a parody of another Canadian show called the Red Fisher show, which also was parodied by SCTV with "The Fishin' Musician". Steve Smith plays Red, a handyman type in a remote lodge. One of his big shticks is that he is always inventing or improving things like BBQs, and he always uses a shitload of duct tape to tape thing things together. That is where Bubbles reference that goes something like "I'd like to see that Red Blue Green cocksucker put one of those together with his duct tape comes from".http://www.cbc.ca/redgreen/Mike Bullard
had his own late night talk show on Canadian TV. It didn't receive very good ratings and was dropped by one Network, then picked up by another only to be eventually cancelled. Before it was cancelled Mike had a chance to have the TPB on the show but he refused, so the boys got a few shots in at him on the show in Season 4. His show was actually cancelled before Season 4 aired.
TPB was by no means the first great TV show, for recommendations on other Canadian shows check herehttp://www.trailerparkboys.org/forums/index.php?topic=1465.0
Ricky Bubbles and Julian appeared in The Tragically Hip's video for their song The Darkest One. This can be found on the Season 1-2 DVD. The lead sing of The Hip is Gord Downie. Ricky used Gord's name when he was trying to come up with a fake name for Julian as he introduced him to Alex Lifeson after he "borrowed" him.

There's a good chance the answer was already given in one of the other threads. Try clicking the Search option found in the row of blue tabs near the top of the forum. Instructions are given on that page, and there's lots of options. You can filter your search by posts,topics, subject lines or message text.
If you really want to learn more about the show I strongly recommend you buy the DVDs and listen to the COMMENTARY
. It is loaded with interesting info and insights into the making of the show. The extras on the DVDs are amazing! You will see some unbelievably funny stuff that didn't make it into the show, well worth the money.
Another good source of background info on the show was the Documentary "Hearts of Dartmouth". Info on that can be found here...http://www.trailerparkboys.org/forums/index.php?topic=4578.0
