If the Full house re-runs just aren't enough for you.. you'll be happy to know that there IS talk of a reunion show!! It is listed on imdb as the "Untitled Full House Revival Project" and many of the actors/actresses from the show have said they would consider returning if the show does happen. John Stamos has been said to really want the project to go forward. Here's hoping a new Full House will happen soon. :)

An article talking about that possibility here.

I loved full house! The twins were so cute, as was Jodie Sweetin. I hate that she has had drug issues. Heck, everybody on that show was cute! Thanks for the memories!

Yeah it was a very cute cast and show. I don't like that she had drug problems either, but I'm glad she has recovered from them. She even wrote a book about her struggles called Un-Sweetined. Well, thanks for visiting and commenting. :)

Ah--a blast from the past. Of all of these actors and actresses, only the Olsen twins have managed to transition to a whole new career and succeed in doing so.

How much of their designer success is attributed to their former fame as cute little girls is impossible to say.

This was a well-done and well-researched article. Thanks for putting it together.

Voted up and interesting.

Mary-Kate and Ashley are designers and in fashion now, but Mary-Kate is still doing a little acting actually. I think Ashley is the main one handling their fashion business. Thanks for the comment and the votes. :)

Awesome!! My daughters grew up with Full House and still watch the reruns! My youngest daughter was named Michelle after Michelle Tanner. I think I've seen every episode at least 10 times! Great tribute hub!

I must admit I've never heard of this show. But it was interesting reading about the actors/actresses that appeared in it. I remember Bob Saget from 'Raising Dad' I had no idea that he was the voice of 'old' Ted in 'How I Met Your Mother' cool.

I always wondered what happened to the Olsen twins, as they were quite big at one time, and just disappeared, glad to see their doing well in their new career.

I also remember Lori Loughlin from 90210, although its been a few years since I watched it. Voted up etc.

Glad you liked it. I loved this show as a kid too. My dad told me it was my favorite when I was like 6. ha-ha. I sometimes still watch it when there's re-runs on. Thanks for the comment and the votes. :)

After watching The Aristocrats, I can never look at Bob Saget the same way again!

urgurl_bri 4 years ago from Holland, MI Author

Never heard of it.. why, what is it about/what did he do in it that made you not like him?


smokingcupcake profile image

smokingcupcake 4 years ago from Dayton, OH

It's a movie where comedians make up the dirtiest/filthiest punchline to a joke. When I heard him, my jaw hit the floor. It's the most repulsive, disgusting, disturbing thing I have ever heard. It definitely made me stop looking at him as Danny Tanner LOL.

urgurl_bri 4 years ago from Holland, MI Author

Ah, I see. Yeah I saw the "Bob Saget Roast" from comedy central.. and I didn't expect to hear the way he talked in that either. Definitely not like Danny at all. Not even close. Ha-ha. But most characters that you love if you were to know the real person playing them, you wouldn't like them either. Very few people are actually like the nice characters they play on tv.

I did not like this as much as some of the other ones. ......... JK! I loved this and was very useful, I would have liked it if it had more detail.

urgurl_bri 4 years ago from Holland, MI Author

Lol, okay SimonCowell. What more detail would you have liked to see? I pretty much covered everything.


SimonCowell 4 years ago

About what happened to them after the show! When they were like, forty!?!

That's what this whole hub is about.. what they've been doing since the show. What movies or shows they've been on. And there's pictures during the show and currently. Did you actually read this hub? lol.
