Opening sequence[]

The opening credits for this season began with a paper rolling on a wood background, and then, the show's logo appeared. Tim hides behind the show's logo, and stands up. Tim screams and falls down into a piece of wood. Jill walks in with a book and suitcase, and puts the clothes into the laundry. Tim flaps his arms, and Jill uses a wheelbarrow. Tim pops in on the wheelbarrow, and we see a shot of the steamroller. Wilson points at the radio controller, and we see another shot of the steamroller. We cut to a shot of Wilson, and a steamroller passes by as pieces of wood land on. Then, the show's logo is formed. We cut to a shot of "video game" scenes featuring the three boys. The Tool Time logo rolls up, and Tim looks at his watch as the TV went static. Al fixes the static on the TV as Tim smiles. We cut to a shot of Al, as well as the entire Taylor family.


The season introduces the Taylors, the average American family, that really aren't so. Tim Taylor, the man of the house, has his own TV show entitled "Tool Time" with a bachelor co-host Al Borland. Tim is also found to be the accident prone and often wanting to rewire and fix things around the house and at work. Jill Taylor is Tim's loving wife, but continually gives him grief over some of the trouble he causes.

Tim and Jill have three sons Brad, Randy and Mark. Each son has their own quirks, Brad is into sports, Randy is smart, and Mark is the younger sensitive brother. They all live in Detroit, Michigan. As said before, Tim often causes mayhem around with machines as well as his marriage. He often goes to his neighbor, Wilson, who is known to give very profound and helpful advice. Wilson is always found in the backyard behind Tim's fence.
