Stand-up comic Tim Allen, who specialized in macho humor,
brought his act to television in this comic saga of a man
and his tool belt. Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor was a local
celebrity in Detroit with his cable TV show Tool Time, a
cheerful mix of fix-it advice and humor sponsored by Binford
Tools. His answer to every problem: more power! At home he
was a bit of a klutz, however, and when he strapped on his
tool belt and whipped out his drill like a six-shooter, the
kids cleared out. Frustrated wife Jill tried to keep him
away from the appliances but to no avail; sons Brad, Randy,
and winsome little Mark offered varying degrees of help;
and neighbor Wilson, never clearly seen over the backyard
fence, philosophized about the meaning of everything.
Al was Tim's knowing helper on Tool Time, along with
Lisa, the buxom "tool girl" (succeeded by Heidi in 1993).
