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.
Originally, Frances Fisher was cast as Jill Taylor. During the filming of the pilot, audiences reacted poorly, saying that she made the character of Jill whiney and desperate. She was replaced with Patricia Richardson four days before the pilot episode was taped.
Shut up, Al.
In the episode, 'Karate Kid', Wilson says that he wrote the book 'The Psychophysiological Indices of Amorous Connections Among Termites of the Southwest'. In the episode 'Wilson's Girlfriend', that book was given as the title of Jill's psychology professor. However, in both episodes, it had only managed to sell 4 copies.
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.
