A bit about Full House...

Full House, a show about a single dad raising his 3 daughters after his wife died, with the help of his 2 best friends, aired new episodes from 1987 to 1995 for its 8 incredible seasons. There are still repeats on many different channels today, 25 years after the show ended. Not many people can forget Michelle's "You Got It Dude's" or Stephanie's "How Rude's". The Show was a favorite for many, children and parents alike. That's why the show got a reboot with Fuller House on Netflix, which gave the Tanner clan another 5 seasons.

When are you going make more episodes of full house????? I love that show !!!!!! I hope soon!!!!!

Melanie Chisnall from Cape Town, South Africa on August 11, 2012:

This was one of my favourite shows next to "Step by Step" when growing up. Thanks for updating us on what they're up to now - great hub! :)

Brandi Goodman (author) from Holland, MI on April 26, 2012:

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.

SimonCowell on April 21, 2012:

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

Brandi Goodman (author) from Holland, MI on April 15, 2012:

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

SimonCowell on April 14, 2012:

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.

Brandi Goodman (author) from Holland, MI on April 03, 2012:

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.

smokingcupcake from Dayton, OH on April 03, 2012:

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.

Brandi Goodman (author) from Holland, MI on April 03, 2012:

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

smokingcupcake from Dayton, OH on April 03, 2012:

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

Brandi Goodman (author) from Holland, MI on March 19, 2012:

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. :)

Amy DeMarco from Chicago on March 17, 2012:

I can't stop looking at Uncle Joey's hideous 80s cardigan! LOL. I loved Full House as a kid and this hub brought back some fun memories! Rated up, awesome, interesting and shared!

Brandi Goodman (author) from Holland, MI on March 16, 2012:

Thanks everyone for the comments! Glad this brought back memories for you guys. I used to love this show as well. It's a great family show. Glad you liked it and thanks for stopping by.

savanahl on March 16, 2012:

What a nostalgic piece. Sure brings back some memories. I used to love this show. Thanks for sharing.

Wendy Iturrizaga from France on March 16, 2012:

I was a fan of the show when I was a little girl, this hub brought up some great memories.

James Kenny from Birmingham, England on March 16, 2012:

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.

Linda Bilyeu from Orlando, FL on March 16, 2012:

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!

Brandi Goodman (author) from Holland, MI on March 16, 2012:

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. :)

Liz Elias from Oakley, CA on March 16, 2012:

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.

Brandi Goodman (author) from Holland, MI on March 16, 2012:

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. :)

Victoria Lynn from Arkansas, USA on March 16, 2012:

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!

Brandi Goodman (author) from Holland, MI on March 03, 2012:

I loved Full House too. Such a great show. Thanks for the comment. :)

LaDena Campbell from Somewhere Over The Rainbow - Near Oz... on March 02, 2012:

Loved Full House! My daughters were just old enough to love and understand it, and they "forced" me to watch it...great hub!

Brandi Goodman (author) from Holland, MI on February 15, 2012:

Thank you so much for reading! Glad you enjoyed.

Eiddwen from Wales on February 14, 2012:

I have to admit that I have never heard of the 'Full House'but this didn't stop me from enjoying this hub.

It was so interesting and I loved the then and now photos.Great work and I now look forward to reading many more by you.
