Trivia

Jump to: Spoilers (1)
Mary-Kate Olsen is left-handed and Ashley Olsen is right-handed. That is why throughout the show, Michelle uses both of her hands to write and eat.
Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen were chosen for the part of Michelle because they were the only twin babies that didn't cry at the audition.
Uncle Jesse's original name was "Uncle Adam", until the actor who played Jesse, John Stamos, decided that he liked "Jesse" better.
By the age of six, Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen, the twins who shared the role of Michelle, started to look so different that audiences could tell them apart. It was considered to chose one twin over the other, and have just Mary-Kate Olsen play the role. However, their fan base at the time was so huge, and co-star John Stamos didn't want one twin to leave the show, so both girls were kept in the role.
According to the show's website, John Stamos, Dave Coulier and Jodie Sweetin are the only cast members to appear in all 193 episodes (including unaired pilot, which is the episode that excludes Bob Saget, who otherwise is in the remaining episode) of the series.
Bob Saget spoke the first line and Dave Coulier spoke the last line of the entire series.
Lori Loughlin (Rebecca) wears her own wedding dress when she and Jesse get married.
The mannequin in the alcove in Joey's room always wears the exact shirt as Joey (Dave Coulier) in the first season.
At first, the producers didn't want people to know that Michelle was played by twins, so in the beginning, they were credited as Mary-Kate Ashley Olsen. In the last season, they were credited as Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen.
The show initially was going to have a ninth season. However, the ninth season was to be on the (then) new WB Network as an old, "classic" show to help launch the new network and lineup. John Stamos (Jesse) did not like how the show was being dropped from ABC, a top three network, and moving to a fledgling new network and announced that the eighth season would be his last. Candace Cameron Bure (D.J.) also planned on the eighth season as her last, doing sporadic guest appearances during the ninth season as her character D.J. came home to visit from college during the holidays, as Cameron in real life was planning on going to college after season eight. After these two announced their departures, the others decided that it was time to call it quits, and the writers decided the series had gone as far as it could go, and the eighth season on ABC (1994-1995) ended up being the final season for Full House (1987).
Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen appeared together onscreen four times during the show's run.
In order for the character Michelle to get involved with comedic and serious moments, Mary-Kate Olsen chose to do the former while Ashley Olsen did the latter.
Full House is coming back as a Netflix Original in 2016. It will contain almost all of the characters as the original. It will have 13 episodes and DJ, Stephanie, and Kimmy will be in all thirteen while the others will be spread out throughout the season
You can tell when Ashley Olsen plays Michelle because, as a child, she had a freckle above her lip.
While a number of blooper reels were shown on TV show compilations, a rough quality tape was leaked on the internet. The video prominently consists of some cast members accidentally swearing during taping.
The season eight episode "Comet's Excellent Adventure" is the only one to be actually taped in San Francisco.
Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen nearly left the show after the first season because their real-life mother was concerned about them missing out on having a "normal" childhood. After a significant raise in salary from the show's producers, she agreed to let them continue. Their mother also let them stay due to the fact that they became so popular.
At no point in the series do we ever see Kimmy or Steve's family even though they are mentioned.
The mom of the girls was killed by a drunk driver in a car accident
In the first season, Jesse's last name was Cochran, but in the second season it was changed to Katsopolis because of John Stamos' Greek heritage. The reason for the change was addressed within the series in an episode in that the last name "Cochran" was a pseudonym Jesse was using to make his name sound more like a rock star.
The Tanner address is 1882 Gerard Street. The exterior shots of the Tanner house are actually from a house located on 1709 Broderick Street.
With the exception of Danny, Steve and Rebecca, all the other characters have catchphrases. Jesse's "Have Mercy", Joey's "Cut *It Out" (which he does with sign language), D.J.'s "Oh, my lanta", Stephanie's (3 catchphrases) "How Rude", "Hot Dog" and "Well pin a rose on your nose", Michelle's (4 catchphrases and has the most), "You got it, dude", "Oh, pa-lease", "You're in big trouble, mister" and "Dugh" and Kimmy's "Hola, Tanner-renos".
The show was nearly cancelled after its first season.
Whenever the cameras weren't rolling, Bob Saget, who is known for his raunchy adult stand-up jokes, would often get in trouble for swearing and making inappropriate jokes, even when around the child actors.
The original premise of the show was three single stand-up comedians living together and the theme was more of an adult-oriented sitcom titled "House of Comics". However, with shows like The Cosby Show (1984) and Family Ties (1982) doing well with family-oriented themes, the show was changed to incorporate family morals and values and the name was changed to Full House (1987).
Joey carries a lot of Detroit Red Wing paraphernalia, including a Red Wings jersey. In real life, Dave Coulier is from the Detroit area.
D.J.'s junior high school (Van Atta Junior High) is named after the producer of the show (1992-1995).
While Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen share the same role as the youngest daughter, Michelle, Bob Saget has twin daughters in real life.
In the unaired pilot episode, John Posey plays the role of Danny Tanner. By the time the series went to air, Bob Saget landed the role.
Lori Loughlin was originally going to appear in only six episodes, all of which the first six were in her debut season.
Danny, Joey and Jesse have all been in jail at some point. Coincidentally, all three guys were wearing something formal (Danny and Joey were wearing dresses and Jesse in a tuxedo).
The Wedding: Part 2 is the second time we only see Rebecca's parents and the last time we see Jesse's parents.
Bob Saget and Paul Reiser were on the top of show creator Jeff Franklin's list to play the role of Danny Tanner, but at the time Saget was under contract for The Morning Program (1987) on CBS and Reiser opted for the role of Michael Taylor on My Two Dads (1987). Eventually Saget became available and he got the role immediately.
All of the shots of the actual San Francisco were filmed in one day.
Every single show that had Elvis music, they played "Heartbreak Hotel," except at Jesse and Rebecca's wedding, when their first song was "Jailhouse Rock."
Jesse Frederick was the sound of ABC's TGIF lineup, having written the themes to Family Matters (1989), Step by Step (1991), Perfect Strangers (1986) and Full House (1987).
Full house and Fuller House both have twins playing one person

Initial title of the show was "House of Comics" due to stand up comedians Bob Saget and Dave Coulier living in the house. Decided to change it to Full House (1987) when it was realized it was more a family-orientated show.
In the film Dumb and Dumber two (2014), Harry tells Lloyd, (listing his sacrifices over his achievements in their lifetime friendship) that he's watched every episode of 'Full House' (1989). This was a real life jab at actor Jeff Daniels-as fans have often mistaken him for series star Dave Coulier.

Sensing some awkwardness with one another, Bob Saget, John Stamos and Dave Coulier went on a road trip to Las Vegas after the first season ended to help develop chemistry, in particular with Stamos, since Saget and Coulier were friends prior to the show. Stamos and Coulier, both single at the time, really bonded during the trip and went on double dates together, while Saget, married at the time, stayed behind. The result was Stamos and Coulier becoming good friends and the writers incorporating this new dynamic in future seasons, with the two working together (first in advertising, later as a radio morning show) and sharing many more scenes on the show together.
