Get ready to feel all the nostalgia feels -- Saturday marks the 25th anniversary of Home Improvement!

The beloved ABC sitcom hit airwaves for the first time on Sept. 17, 1991. The Tim Allen vehicle would go on to become one of the most highly-rated shows of the '90s, even hitting No. 1 in the ratings during its third season.

Home Improvement was based on the stand-up comedy of Allen. He starred as Tim Taylor, an accident-prone but lovable dad who had a local cable access DIY show, Tool Time.

The show would turn Jonathan Taylor Thomas, who played Tim's middle son Randy, into not just a household name but a tween heartthrob, lovingly known by his initials, JTT. Pamela Anderson even starred on the series for two years before leaving for that little show you may have heard of: Baywatch.
