Tim Allen Net Worth History
Tim Allen was a household name in the 1990s, even though today he tends to be more strongly associated with certain characters. He rose to prominence as the star of the hit sitcom Home Improvement, which debuted in 1991 and lasted until 1999. People will also remember him from Christmas classics like the Santa Clause series of films. Naturally, he is probably most well-known for voicing Buzz Lightyear in the Toy Story film series, as well as a lot of the Toy Story spin-off material. Given the popularity and renown that the Toy Story films have achieved, Tim Allen’s enduring popularity is going to largely be based off of his participation in the Toy Story series. Somewhat ironically, Tim Allen only received a salary of 50,000 dollars to voice Buzz Lightyear in the first Toy Story film in 1995, before it became a pop culture phenomenon and before they knew that this then-experimental film was going to be a success. By the second Toy Story movie in 1999, Tim Allen’s salary had expanded to an astonishing 5 million dollars for voicing Buzz Lightyear. He made 1.25 million dollars an episode during the final season of Home Improvement, but this show is nowhere near as widely or as fondly remembered as the ludicrously popular Toy Story series of films. A good portion of the Tim Allen net worth today can be attributed to his iconic performance as Buzz Lightyear, and the people of the twenty-first century are not going to know Tim Allen from many other roles.
About Tim Allen
Tim Allen was one of the most iconic stars of the 1990s, which is one of the things that landed him the role of Buzz Lightyear in the first place. However, he has managed to lose a good deal of the star power that he once was able to enjoy. Home Improvement is not the pop cultural touchstone that it used to be, and while Nineties sitcoms like Friends and Seinfeld are still widely remembered, Home Improvement is remembered more as a piece of trivia than any sort of defining cultural artifact. It is accurate to say that Tim Allen’s star has fallen compared to how high it once rose.
However, the Tim Allen net worth has remained largely unaffected by this change in his celebrity status. His good fortune to land a role with as much enduring popularity as his role as Buzz Lightyear has likely made all the difference in terms of the regular paychecks that Tim Allen continues to receive. The film Christmas with the Kranks managed to derail his career somewhat back in the day, but the fact that he always had Buzz Lightyear to fall back on has no doubt helped him survive that storm and many others. Buzz Lightyear will live on, and Tim Allen will live on with him.
