Bubbles gives out his phone number


We were watching Trailer Park Boys this afternoon. Season 7, IMHO, is a lot funnier than the past two seasons. I didn't like Season 6 much at all.

Anyway, in Season 7, Episode 4, "Friends of the Road", Bubbles is on his way to Bangor, Maine to see Sebastian Bach at a model railroad show. He and Ray stop at a truckstop for some food, and Ray ends up arrested for soliciting a prostitute. Bubbles panics, hides in a phone booth, and makes a collect call to Julian back at the park for help.

We noticed that Bubbles dialed 0-902-4...something. That'd be a Halifax number, so I got curious. Could he be calling an actual number of interest? It wasn't the traditional TV/movie 555-whatever.

So, we played and replayed until Amanda figured out what number he was dialing.

We went to canada411 to do the reverse lookup on the number.

And whaddya know -- it's the number for Michael E. Smith -- the actor/musician who plays Bubbles. He dialed his own number.

Now, I'm not going to put the number up here so everyone can call Smith/Bubbles. Just a funny bit of trivia discovered through the wonders of PVR technology and the convenience of having a computer hooked up to the TV.

  1. I want to know how long it took before you had all seven digits plus area code.
    I would have had to have several glasses of wine before I developed that kind of patience.

  2. Took about two minutes ... we had the area code and the exchange right away.. it was the last four digits that posed the problem. On first look, it appeared he hit too many numbers, but Amanda caught it after four four or five plays.
