The daily trials and tribulations of Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor, a television show host raising three mischievous boys with help from his loyal co-host, loving wife, and eccentric neighbor.
A Super Nintendo video game was based on the television series. As part of the game's gimmick, the majority of the instruction manual was blanked out with the words "REAL MEN DON'T NEED INSTRUCTIONS." The game was only loosely based on the show, and featured Tim fighting through various television sets in the Tool Time studio. The battles consisted of Tim fighting with men dressed up like dinosaurs.
Excuse me a second, Al, I need to go use the John.
Tim: I gotta go take a dump.
Tim: I gotta go #1.
In some episodes, Sherry Hursey's character, Ilene is sometimes spelled as "Eileen" in the credits.
Most episodes featured outtakes from either Tool Time or the show itself as a backdrop to the closing credits.
The syndication version of the episode "I Was a Teenage Taylor" [6.7] contains a scene previously unincluded in the primetime version in which Tim brings his Halloween guy to the Tool Time set.
