Storyline

This is a story about sports-broadcaster-turned-morning-talk-show-host Danny Tanner and his three little girls, D.J. (Donna Jo), Stephanie, and Michelle Tanner. Before the show begins, Danny Tanner's wife is killed by a drunk driver, so he needs help raising his daughters. He asks his rock-musician brother-in-law Jesse Katsopolis and his comedian best friend Joey Gladstone to move in with them. As the show goes on, Jesse marries Rebecca Donaldson, Danny's talk-show co-host, and they have twin sons, Nicholas Katsopolis. Written by Raffi Nazarian <gamk@yahoo.com>

User Reviews

Nice and cute TV-series.
23 May 2001 | by Brian-272See all my reviews

This beloved ABC hit comedy had plenty of viewers during the 80's and 90's. The episodes were always funny and interesting. Bob Saget was much better with this than he was with his role on "America's Funniest Home Videos". Bob Saget as a TV sportscaster who was left with three little girls when his wife died suddenly. Into the San Francisco home of his rock 'n' roll brother-in-law Jesse (John Stamos) along with a goofy friend Joey (David Coulier) helped out. This show dealt with growing pains, little lessons, and life in general. This show also featured the sexy Lori Loughlin.
