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>

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

The First Season was the best.
6 July 2004 | by jvasserSee all my reviews

I have to tell you, I really liked this show, but I only REALLY liked this show in the First Season. I love the episodes with Joey, Danny, and Jesse as the main characters. They were the funniest characters in the show. But when the kids grew up, there was suddenly a second plot in most episodes. Then it suddenly stopped being as funny as when there were a few main characters. But it was still pretty funny. I'm not saying that it's not good in the later seasons, it's just not AS good. It's all funny, but the First Season is the funniest. I still love the show after 17 years. Watch it when you get the chance, especially when it's the First Season, I love those episodes! I give the show overall an 8.5/10
