Home Improvement was an American sitcom that was in regards to a handyman named Tim Taylor (played by Tim Allen), who had his own local cable show (in the Detroit, Michigan viewing area) called Tool Time. Even though he was well-versed in tools and the shop area, Taylor usually managed to screw up and cause damage, if not totally destroy various projects he was involved in. His partner on the show was the long-suffering Al Borland (Richard Karn). The rest of Home Improvement was balanced out with Taylor’s family life, which included his wife Jill (Patricia Richardson) and their sons Randy (Jonathan Taylor Thomas), Mark (Taran Noah Smith) and Brad (Zachery Ty Bryan). The Taylors were also usually given advice by their genius next door neighbor Wilson Wilson, Jr. (Earl Hindman). The show ran from 1991-1999.

In "The Longest Day" episode, part of it took place in an unnamed arcade. Its games ran on quarters.
