Old flames.

Okay, so maybe he wasn't ever a flame.
Except in my dreams.
But y'all, I was in lurve.



He stole my heart as Randy Taylor on Home Improvement.
He kept me hanging on in Wild America.
Heck, I even watched I'll Be Home For Christmas to see his cute face.

People Magazine just posted pictures of him from the Home Improvement reunion.
Still pretty cute.  
But it brings back painful memories of the day I realized I'm taller than him.



Who was your childhood crush?

He was so much cuter as a kid! My crush...Devon Sawa. Swoon.

Lil' Woman said...

Goodness, he is short!
I loved him too and Devon Sawa! :)

KLaw said...

he is so short! I had no idea! Ah, such a cutie though.

Whitney said...

I used to love that show!

Ashley said...

I loved him. Like 16-Magazine-posters plastered-on-my-wall loved him... I loved Devon Sawa, too. That end scene in Casper? Well, I may have paused my VHS a few times just to look at his face :) Another of my faves was Rider Strong from Boy Meets World - he could rock a flannel like no other :)

Fun post! I can't believe how different the boys from Home Improvement look! I still picture them as teenagers even though they're my age.

Michelle said...

My crush was Zack Morris!!!!! Hello? Didn't the old school cell phone do it for you too???

Nikki said...

I love I'll be Home for Christmas! I still try to watch it every couple years.

I never followed the JTT band wagon, I had to be different. So I chose Zachary Ty Bryan. Good to see that he didn't age quite as well and your man.

Meg O. said...

I LOVED JTT! I think he looks kind of weird now.... but in a cute way.

Jennifer said...

He was so adorable. I was just too old to like him like that.

I was into Johnny Depp and still am.

Cole said...

He's still maintained his boyish good looks. :-)

I was all about Joey McIntyre and Mark Wahlberg.

Kasondra said...

Another Devon Sawa fan here!

And RYAN MERRIMAN!!! Swoon! I totally wrote him a letter inviting him to my Sweet 16 Party.

Katie said...

I loved that he was short b/c I am too! And he's still looking good but needs a haircut. Speaking of looking good-- Patricia Richardson has aged WELL. She looks amazing. Not so much the woman who played Heidi...

Anna said...

JTT was definitely on my list. I still have a crush on him, even though I'm probably a solid 6 inches taller than he is haha.

And Cory from Boy Meets World. Swooon. He was such an awkward looking kid!

Lacey said...

OMG I LOVED JTT!!

SweetTeaInSicily said...

Oh geeze, I was a HUUUUGE JTT fan! But I have to admit, when the People Magazine pics came out I threw up in my mouth just a little. He is sooo not the cutie pie he used to be. But at least he aged better than Taran (aka Mark Taylor!) Yeesh @ that hair! lol

Kasey said...

Elijah Wood was my crush!!

Victoria said...

i loved home improvement,too :)

i was a zack (from saved by the bell) admirer or corey (from boy meets world).

oh the classics!

Bink said...

I was a JTT lover as well! But cheese & rice, the youngest kid sure looks weird today!

Ashleigh said...

OMG JTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i am so happy you posted this! i love him... or LOVED him... man, he IS short, holy crap!

Miss Lindsay said...

I have lots of catching up to do on your blog... and can I say seeing this just MADE my day. Definitely had tons of Bop and Big Bopper posters of him on my wall alongside Jonathan Jackson and Andrew Keegan.

Lori Spencer said...

Jonathan Taylor Thomas, the 12 year old inside me still swoons!

Rachel said...

Oh, he's so cute...not hot, just cute. Is it just me or did Jill age the best out of all of them?

Laura said...

I so still have an autographed picture of him... oh yes its true.

I will say I think the mom from the show looks great. Everyone else aged but she looks the same as she did back then.

tara said...

JTT was hot, for reals.

daniela said...

I don't even know how to thank you for this post! JTT <3

Crazy Shenanigans-JMO said...

Oh my gosh!!! I didn't know they did a reunion! I loved that show!!

Rachel said...

BRAD RENFRO. And JTT
Gahhh I was in lurveee with that boy.
You can imagine my excitement from Tom + Huck!

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

OMG I LOVE ME SOME JTT! Thank you Bop and Tiger Beat for helping fuel my obsession...and lining my walls with posters!!

What's up with his teeth in the second picture though? They're really short lol. And Heidi needs to back up off our man. Her boobs are all over his neck bahaha!

Jules said...

lol. you never would date a guy you were taller than. I guess I can't relate (because not many are shorter than me). MY childhood crushES were JTT, and Andrew Keegan. And Leo of course -even though first roommate used to sign everythins Mrs. DiCaprio- I still crushed him.

Amber said...

Oh my goodness, I loved me some JTT! I also loved Leo DiCaprio and Nick from BSB ;)

undomestic chica said...

I had the same crush. I think he made a cuter kid though.

Savanah said...

dang he's short!!! I'm pretty sure every girl our age loved him :) I also loved Jonathan Brandis!!

Shelley said...

Seriously? This just made us soul sisters. I was obsessed with him too! Ironic that I married a guy with his last name! :)

Eboix said...

ahhhhh I used to love me some JTT - memories!!

Nichole said...

Ahhh, oh man does this bring back some memories! He still looks great and the other two "sons", don't, lol...I was in LOVE with Prince William (okay, so he wasn't an actor or whatever, but I swear I wanted to marry him) and Devon Sawa...whatever happened to JTT, I wonder?!

Megan said...

Hahahaha, what a shorty!! : ) I never liked him. GASP! Don't hate me!!

Heather said...

Wasn't he the ultimate teenage dream guy? Him and Devin Sowa (sp?!)...ohhhh to go back in those days, haha!

Meghan said...

What an awesome post. I absolutely loved Jonathan Brandis - I was so sad when he died:(

The Nerdy Katie said...

I was in LOVE with JTT! I wonder what he is doing now?

Romance In A Glance said...
