Tony Micelli, a retired baseball player, becomes the housekeeper of Angela Bower, an advertising executive in New York. Together they raise their kids, Samantha Micelli and Jonathon Bower, with help from Mona Robinson, Angela's man-crazy mother.
Ashley Judd auditioned for and won the role of Lisa, the Tool Girl. Her agent urged her to pursue movies instead of a television career, and she pulled out a few days before the original pilot was to be taped. This resulted in the casting of Pamela Anderson. The last-minute change necessitated alterations to the original script, in which Lisa was a major character. She was suppose to be a college student, majoring in psychology, who acted as a stand-in for Jill on the Tool Time set. See more »

Syndication prints replace the first season opening credits (in which the cast's names are printed in a different font), with the opening credits that were used beginning with season two. Although the opening sequences are the same across the two seasons, the theme tunes are not. See more »
The most entertaining show I've ever watched on TV
Home Improvement ranks at #1 of my all-time favorite shows ever. I have seen every episode of the show at least 10 times and I never get tired of them. Tim Allen is very funny in this show, and I will forever be a huge fan of his because of this show. The show had an excellent cast and they had great chemistry. This show would still be as good if it were still on the air, but unfortunately, Earl Hindman passed away in late 2003, a man whose character, Wilson, helped drive the show. There was never a show before this of this level of entertainment, and there will never be one like it again. Many of the people that I know always talk about how good this show is. This is a show that I hope will be played in reruns for many years to come.
