When Tim “The Toolman” Taylor was introduced on the hit sitcom “Home Improvement,” he immediately endeared himself — as well as his quirky family and friends — to audiences across America. His manic obsession with power tools and car engines coupled with his brusque but loving relationship with his wife and sons made him wildly appealing to men, women and children of all ages. Plots centered on Taylor’s home improvement TV show, family ties and social issues, included a degree of the political and cultural opinions of the family, and featured memorable supporting characters including Tim’s assistant Al and his ubiquitous neighbor, Wilson.

The show’s 8-year run resulted in a lot of behind-the-scenes secrets only producers knew — secrets that have been kept tightly under wraps until now!
