A widowed broadcaster raises his three children with the assistance of his rock 'n' roll brother-in-law and his madcap best friend.
By the age of six, Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen, the twins who shared the role of Michelle, started to look so different that most audiences could tell them apart. It was considered to chose one twin over the other, and have just Mary-Kate Olsen play the role. However, their fan base at the time was so huge, and co-star John Stamos didn't want one twin to leave the show, so both girls were kept in the role.
Okay girls. Lets pick a name for our new puppy. Michelle do you have a name for the puppy?
Michelle: Yes I do. Michelle.
Danny Tanner: That's your name.
Michelle: I like my name.
Steph: Mr. Bear and I have the perfect name. Mr.Dog!
D.J.: Mr.Dog? Steph when you have a kid someday what are you ...
When Jesse's mom comes to help the other moms clean the house in season 1, ep 4, there is no mention of the fact that she is the girls' other grandma - they only refer to Danny's mom as grandma.
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).
