In 1990, TA Part 1: before he became a No. 1 television star/movie star/author/zillionaire, Tim Allen took the stage at the State Theatre in Kalamazoo, Michigan, the town where he'd gone to college, and taped the stand-up special that would change his life. All the elements that would become the basis for Home Improvement were part of Allen's routine that night: his obsession with hardware, his valiant but unsuccessful attempts at figuring out what women want from men but most of all, the hooting, snorting, grunting Neanderthal noises that would become his signature. "I got the John Deere tractor, the 160 series, hoo, hoo, hoo, that's 11 horses, twin-seater, 42-inch blade rear bagger with a tiller, arrrh, arrrh, arrrh. It's got headlights on it, in case I want to mow at night." He dusts with a leaf blower, puts turbo engines in the washing machine, does dishes with an orbital sander. He has every tool known to man.
