    There is a running gag regarding the Taylor's neighbor, Wilson; his face is always concealed from about the nose down (except in one episode where the top half of his face is covered with paper mache). In most episodes, Wilson was being shot from behind a fence, but in later episodes where he got out more often, camera shots, actor movements, and prop placements were carefully orchestrated so that his full face was not revealed. In fact, during all the curtain calls for the show (except the series finale curtain call, where his entire face was shown), actor Earl Hindman, who played Wilson, would bring a miniature picket fence to hold in front of his face so that it would remain hidden from view.

    When the show went into syndication in 1995, the producers chose to film a new episode to kick-off the syndicated episodes, a first for a network series. Tim Allen and Patricia Richardson filmed part of the episode at the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center in Twentynine Palms, Calif., where their characters had a race, driving tanks on a mapped out course. Many Marines of 1st Tank Battalion were then invited to the studios in Los Angeles to watch the filming of the rest of the episode live from the studio audience.
