Home Improvement was one of those hilarious and completely family friendly sitcoms from the 90s that will forever go down in nostalgic history. Tim Allen playing the role of Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor with comedic precision, followed by a well put together cast to accompany his exploits. The show gave us a great look at some of the issues facing families at the time, as well as their personal struggles as the Taylor kids grew up.

That being said, here are 11 things that you probably didn't know about Home Improvement.

1. Older is actually younger.

On the show, Brad, who was played by Zachery Ty Bryan, was actually the oldest brother. But in reality, Jonathon Taylor Thomas who played the middle brother Randy was actually the oldest kid on set, by one month.

2. Richard Karn wasn't the first choice to play Al.

I couldn't picture anyone else other than Karn to play the iconic Al, "I don't think so Tim." Stephen Tobolowsky was originally cast in the role but couldn't do it because he was filming a movie at the time the show started.

3. Home Improvement has a cameo in the original Toy Story?

You always have to love a great Easter egg. Tim Allen plays Buzz Lightyear in the popular kids movie franchise Toy Story. In the original movie, when Buzz is being strapped to the rocket by Sid you can see a Binford toolbox in his room. Binford Tools of course being the name brand tool company from Home Improvement.
