Trivia that mentions this person:
Dr. Seuss' The Cat in the Hat [2003]
  • Tim Allen was originally cast as the title role, but couldn't do it because he was filming The Santa Clause 2.
    Galaxy Quest [1999]
  • The scene when Tim Allen is in a mens room overhearing how the cast of [Galaxy Quest] are nobodies and all the co-stars can't stand him mirrors an actual event in William Shatner's life. He discovered the exact same things about himself when he attended a [Star Trek] convention.
  • In theaters, the film was presented at 1.85:1 for the first 20 minutes. When Tim Allen first realizes he's on a real spaceship and the vista of Thermia is revealed, the screen image widened to 2.35:1 as the parting walls of the spaceship revealed the vista.
    The Santa Clause [1994]
  • Tim Allen has a criminal record and Disney has a no hiring of ex-cons policy. An exception was made in this case.
  • A scene was cut for being offensive. Tim Allen made a sarcastic remark in the movie including the line "1 800 Spank Me". When a child decided to call the number, it turned out to be a phone sex line. The child's mother's complaint had the scene cut.
  • During his tour of the workshop, Scott Calvin tries out a tool belt shakes his head as if to indicate that tools aren't for him. This is a reference to Tim Allen's then-hit TV show, [Home Improvement] where his character's life (Tim "the tool man" Taylor) revolved around tools.
    The Santa Clause 2 [2002]
  • Scott Calvin starts talking about cars and engines while talking to Carol Newman, and while walking through the toyshop, Santa picks up and tries on a tool belt. These reference to Tim Taylor, Tim Allen's character on [Home Improvement].
  • Toy Santa's line, "You are a sad, strange little man," is also used by Tim Allen as Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story.
    Toy Story [1995]
  • What attracted Tom Hanks to the role of Woody, was during his childhood he would always wonder if his toys were alive and moved around when nobody was in his room. What attracted Tim Allen to the role of Buzz Lightyear, was before him they offered the role to his biggest influence in his career, Chevy Chase, who turned it down.
  • Tim Allen has said in many interviews that Pixar originally wanted Jim Carrey (representing new Hollywood) to voice Buzz Lightyear and Paul Newman (representing old Hollywood) to voice Woody, but they couldn't due to the low budget they were given for the film.
  • The toolbox that Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) pushes off the milk crate bears the name "Binford Tools," the name of the company which sponsors Allen's character's show in [Home Improvement].
