Full House (US)

Main Summary

Full House was a children/comedy show that ran from 1987-1995. It drew millions of fans to each episode, some of the fans loving the comedy of Joey Gladstone, or maybe the musical talents of Jesse Katsopolis/Cochran. It's first episode was on September 22, 1987 and it's last episode was on May 23, 1995.

The story begins in 1987, Danny Tanner has recently lost his wife, Pam Tanner. His mother, who had helped him out since Pam's death, was moving out. So Danny asks his best friend, Joey Gladstone, and his brother-in-law, Jesse Cochran/ Katsopolis, to move in and help him raise his three daughters: DJ, Stephanie, and Michelle. What was supposed to be a few weeks turned into 8 years, as Jesse and Joey decide to stay and Jesse even gets married and raises his kids there, but Joey stays single through the whole series, unfortunately.

The series ran until 1995, which ABC decided to drop it. The WB station offered them to be on their station, but some of the cast didn't want to do it. At the end of the last episode, Mary-Kate and Ashley were sad that it was the last episode. (after all, it did begin their careers)

Catch Phrases

Jesse: "Have Mercy!"

Opening Theme

Whatever happened to predictability?
The milkman, the paperboy, evening TV?

How did I get to livin' here?
Somebody tell me please.
This old world,
confusing me.

With clouds as mean as you've ever seen,
and a world that knows your tunes.
Then a little voice inside you whispers,
kid don't sell your dreams so soon!

Everywhere you look, everywhere (there's a heart),
There's a heart, a hand to hold on to.
Everywhere you look!

When you're lost out there and you're all alone,
a light is waiting to carry you home!

Everywhere you look!

Theme Mistakes

In the 1st and 2nd Season DVD set, if you listen to the theme song, "Dreams" sounds more like "Dweams".

Reunion Rumors

The series had a mini-reunion on America's Funniest Home Video's on May 9, 1997. There was also an "E! True Hollywood Story" about it. There are also rumors that it is going to have a reunion movie.

There have been several rumors of a Full House reunion movie, but are most likely not true. A few cast members would like to do it, but a few would not like to do it.

Also, Dave Coulier might be doing a Full House documentary.

Really Good ShowRating: 0 likes, 5 dislikes

This show was a rememberable one, and it became a favorite of kids almost everywhere. The show taught us many things, but it did lack action. The family had many problems but usually the most action was an argument or two...or three. If you enjoy comedy or family shows, you probably like this show. If you don't, you still might like it. Yeah, it's that good of a show. Read more
