Recently, Home Improvement star Richard Karn chimed in on the debate over who made the better Tool Time girl: Pamela Anderson or Debbie Dunning?
Karn played Al Borland on the hit 1990s sitcom. Home Improvement fans will remember that he and Tim Allen co-hosted a show within the show called Tool Time. The Binford-sponsored home improvement show included mild-mannered Al who played the counterpart to his accident-prone co-host Tim “The Toolman” Taylor.
In addition, Tool Time featured one other host, a “Tool Time girl” who introduced Tim and Al. She also helped with their demonstrations and assisted the hosts by bringing out certain tools throughout the show.
During the first two seasons of Home Improvement, model and actress Pamela Anderson played Lisa, the original “Tool Time girl.” However, from Season 3 and on, another model and actress took over the role. Debbie Dunning starred as Heidi, the second “Tool Time girl,” from 1993 to the show’s finale in 1999.
Many people have a preference when it comes to their favorite “Tool Time girl.” Some prefer Lisa since she was the original. Others prefer Heidi because she was there longer and became a more established part of the series. Yet when one fan on Twitter went directly to the source for the answer. They asked Richard Karn his preference between the two. He gave a very gracious, Al Borland-like answer.
“Both were amazing,” Karn said judiciously while adding a sunglasses emoji to his answer.
‘Home Improvement’ Star Richard Karn Reacts to Season Finale of ‘Assembly Required’
Richard Karn recently teamed backed up with his Home Improvement co-star Tim Allen for a competitive reality show called Assembly Required. Critics and fans alike have praised the show for reuniting the pair, who have obvious on-screen chemistry.
As per usual, the two actors’ comedic stylings go together well. Karn’s laid-back demeanor complements Allen’s boisterous and witty personality perfectly. It’s one of the many reasons Assembly Required is coming back for a second season.
For now, the first season has recently come to a close. But the pair shared some thoughts on social media and clearly can’t wait to get back to filming season two. Karn responded to a tweet from The History Channel recalling how amusing the last episode was to create.
“This last show made me laught out loud… multiple times,” Karn responded along with a laughing emoji.
