According to an interview with, Don Stark pitched the idea of getting Red stoned to the show’s producer, Terry Turner. “I said to him, ‘You know what I’d love to see? I’d love to see Red high,'” Stark said. “Maybe they had thought about it before, but that episode where we have the ‘special brownies’ with the special ingredients of love, I thought was a very funny episode.”
The episode in question is Season 2, Episode 1 (“Garage Sale”), when Hyde makes “special” brownies for the Formans’ garage sale without telling any of the adults what is in the brownies. As a result, the grown-ups all have their own version of the show’s famous 360 scenes. In the ensuing chaos, Red sells Eric’s car, leading to hilarious results as a sober Eric and Hyde have to help a fried Red find the car and get it back.
According to, Stark has not been confirmed for the upcoming reboot of “That ’70s Show” called “That ’90s Show.” That doesn’t necessarily mean he won’t show up, as he is the grandfather of the show’s main character, Leia Forman. According to , many of the original cast members will return for the reboot, including Topher Grace, Laura Prepon, Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, Kurtwood Smith, and Debra Jo Rupp. Tommy Chong, who played Leo off and on throughout the series, also confirmed in an appearance on the that he will be returning as well. So, with so many stars coming back, one can only hope we get to see Stark in the reboot so we can learn what ’90s fads Bob Pinciotti has taken up.
