‘Buddies’: The Home Improvement Spinoff starring Dave Chappelle


In 1995 Dave Chappelle and Jim Breuer made an appearance on Home Improvement playing characters by the names of…wait for it…Dave and Jim.

From this brief appearance (I suppose) producers had seen enough and decided Chappelle needed his on spinoff. That spinoff would be called Buddies


How did Dave Chappelle feel about the his show? Well here is a hint:

“It was a bad show. It was bad. I mean when we were doing it, I could tell this was not gonna work.”


I’ve kind of glossed over the story of how all of this came to be and what it would nearly become but luckily for you the great people at Splitsider have come to the rescue and have written a great piece on this complete with research and everything! I highly suggest giving it a look as it is always fun to look back on these things and wonder “what if”. Check out the article here.

  3. I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of youur blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one orr 2
    pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
