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>

Trivia

DJ, Stephanie and Michelle are 10 years old, 5 years old and 9 months old respectively when the show starts. When they show ends, they are 18 years old, 13 years old and 8 years old respectively. All three girls grew up drastically during the shows run. See more »

Goofs

In "Just One of the Guys" Danny has a 17 year old nephew named Steve. It's not mentioned if it's his brother or sister's son. Since Steve is 17 and Danny is 30, that would mean that Steve's parents weren't much older than Danny and that Steve's parents were 18 or 19 when he was born, similar to Danny having D.J. at 19. Also after "Just One of the Guys" airs, Steve is never mentioned again as Danny is portrayed as an only child as always. See more »

Alternate Versions

A longer version of the theme song was used in the first few seasons of the show but was truncated in later reruns, though this version was kept on some episodes, such as the pilot when it airs on ABC Family. First season episodes in syndication also feature a credit for Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (they were only credited during the end credits in the first season). See more »

User Reviews

Used to be my absolute favorite show.
16 August 2002 | by Registered_UserSee all my reviews

Back in the day, I was crazy about Full House no matter how cheesy I or anybody else regards it now. It's the perfect 11-year-old girl show. My favorite character was always Stephanie, although the Olsen twins are more my age. The network used to show back-to-back episodes every weekday on WGN after school (right after Blossom) and I was in my glory. Much like the X-Files, I went through a stage in my life where everything was Full House related. I even went so far as to tape it. Kimmy Gibler was a favorite of mine, probably because she was such a weirdo and makes me think of many people I know. Never cared for D.J. or Michelle very much and sadly Danny reminds me a lot of my mother who is also detergent crazy. Recommended for nostalgic reasons and to little girls.
