In celebration of the 20th anniversary of one of ABC TV’s highest rated family comedy series of the 1990’s, Walt Disney Studios unveils the complete DVD collection of Home Improvement on May 10th, 2011. Just in time for Father’s Day, this incredible limited edition collection is packaged as a stunning red toolbox that includes all eight seasons on 25 discs, an exclusive Binford ‘all-in-one’ tool as well as hours of entertaining bonus features for viewers of all ages to enjoy at the suggested retail price of $129.99 in the U.S./$149.99 in Canada.
Home Improvement, a top-rated and beloved TV series that aired from 1991-1999, stars (Toy Story 1, 2 & 3, Wild Hogs) as Tim Taylor the accident-prone TV host of a do-it-yourself home projects program called “Tool Time,” Richard Karn (The Pooch and the Pauper, Air Bud) as Al Borland the trusty, flannel-wearing sidekick and co-host of “Tool Time”, Patricia Richardson (TV’s “The West Wing,” “Strong Medicine”) as the wonderfully supportive wife Jill, who is always by her husband’s side as they undertake the challenge of raising three mischievous sons – Zachery Ty Bryan (First Kid, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift) as Brad, Jonathan Taylor Thomas (Tom and Huck, Man of the House) as Randy and Taran Noah Smith (Little Bigfoot 2: The Journey Home) as Mark. And whenever Tim Taylor finds himself at a loss, next-door neighbor Wilson, played by Earl Hindman (TV’s “Ryan’s Hope”), never fully seen, but always heard, can be counted on to dole out home-spun advice from behind his fence.
Co-creators and executive producers Carmen Finestra (TV’s “The Cosby Show,” “Punky Brewster”) and David McFadzean (What Women Want, Where the Heart Is) provide the final word on the series in their insightful audio commentary. Besides the live reunion special, additional bonus content includes a collection of funniest moments presented by “Tool Time” girl Debbe Dunning, a two-part featurette entitled “Loose Screws” highlighting a compilation of some of the biggest laughs in the show’s history, and of course, the legacy of fantastic bloopers that occurred over the years.
Tim Allen’s character Tim Taylor has been ranked #20 in TV Guide’s “50 Greatest TV Dads Of All Time” list, and Tim Allen won a Golden Globe award for Best Actor In A TV Series, 1995. The show won seven Emmy® Awards for lighting and photography direction (1992-1996, 1998-1999) and was nominated for eight Emmy® Awards (for outstanding comedy series 1992-1994; Patricia Richardson Outstanding Lead Actress 1994, 1996-1998; Tim Allen Outstanding Lead Actor 1993).
