If you want to try Hick Peterson's "Stinkie," mentioned in episode 120, prepare for a pricey experiment. These are 2019 prices in Richmond, Va, a very low cost-of-living locale. One block of Limburger, enough for three sandwiches: $5.49 A good bread (rye or pumpernickel, usually): $3.99 If you choose to add meat (liverwurst is the typical choice) $2.99 A package of sauerkraut for five sandwiches: $1:49 Spicy mustard: $1.79 An onion isn't much, but that's already a pricey three sandwiches! As for the Limburger smell, imagine the dog blanket on laundry day. When they call it a Stinkie, they are NOT kidding! See more »
Say, do you think they call it a nail gun because it shoots nails?

Most episodes featured outtakes from either Tool Time or the show itself as a backdrop to the closing credits. 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 »
I grew up with "Home Improvement". I followed "HI" from its very first episode (I had just started 6th grade) to its last (I had finished my first year of college). This was a fun show because you could relate to the Taylor family. I always laughed at Al's flannel wardrobe, his mom (!), and his relationship with Ilene. I loved the episode of Tool Time with the car alarm ("Back away, Flannel Man!")
It was a great eight seasons. I miss "Home Improvement" and the people on it. But we'll always have our memories. (and reruns!)
