Behind The Scenes of Home Improvement

Popular Dad

The character ‘Tim Taylor’ was ranked #20 in TV Guide’s list of the “50 Greatest TV Dads of All Time” in one of the June 2004 issues. Other notable dads included Bill Cosby of “The Cosby Show” and Bob Saget of “Full House.” Everyone loves a fun and loving sitcom dad and Tim Taylor is one of the most popular! Like a typical American family, the Taylors lived in the suburbs. Tim was portrayed as a republican (which Tim Allen is in really life) who loves his hobbies including power tools, cars, and sports. The mother, Jill Taylor, has her hands full with a house full of boys. Tim and Jill have a happy marriage, and only get into mild arguments. Sometimes Jill can be seen visibly annoyed from all of Tim’s jokes. Although shown as a stay at home mom, Jill later chooses to go back to college to study psychology.
