After Netflix announced that they were reviving sitcom staple “Full House,” fans of the show have been eager to reminisce about their favorite memories.
The show revolves around the Tanner family. Patriarch Danny (Bob Saget) is devastated after his wife dies. But he still has to raise his three daughters, D.J. (Candace Cameron Bure), Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), and Michelle (Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen). So, Danny recruits his brother-in-law Jesse (John Stamos) and childhood friend Joey (Dave Coulier) to help.
Scroll down to see a few fan-favorites from the original show that we hope find their way into the reboot.
Uncle Jesse’s hair became a trademark for John Stamos’ character, and he was always very particular about it. We all remember the episode in which Stephanie pretends to cut Jesse’s hair (and ultimately does), and he is very cautious and uptight about it. Throughout the show, he was often seen measuring his hairline from his eyebrows with a measuring tape. He even sported a mullet at the beginning of the show, and his catchphrase was “watch the hair!” It’s safe to say that his interests included his own hair, and we’re excited to see this interest play out in the series’ reboot.
Danny’s motto is, “clean is good, dirt is bad.” Throughout the show, Full House fanatics came to realize that Danny was obsessed with cleaning, referring to Spring cleaning as “his Christmas” and recruiting his daughter Michelle to be his little helper. Danny is always ironing, mopping the floor, and hoping his three daughters love cleaning as much as he does.
Joey – “Cut It Out”
“Cut it out” was Joey’s catchphrase. Fun fact: Dave Coulier, who plays Joey, actually called one of his albums, “Cut it Out.” However, the catchphrase was originally something Coulier said on the 80s TV series “Out of Control,” which he then brought to the set of “Full House.” The phrase was so popular that Coulier recently brought it back during a segment on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” (above), where they teach Fallon a lesson about leaving the “Late Night” show.
Stephanie – “How rude!”
Stephanie, the middle daughter, often said, “how rude!’ about anything and everything. When Stephanie’s secret-keeping abilities are doubted by Uncle Joey, her reaction is, “how rude!” When she gets hung up on the phone: “how rude!” Michelle steals her cupcake and runs off: “how rude!”
Michelle – “You got it, dude.”
Michelle Tanner, played by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, is undoubtedly the cutest character on the show — especially when she gives a thumbs up with her recurring statement, “you got it, dude.” Sometimes, she even left out certain syllabus, but all in all, the way she said it stayed consistent throughout the entire series. We are hoping to get a little dose of “you got it, dude” in the reboot, although it has not been confirmed that the Olsen twins will participate in the revival.
The Beach Boys
In one episode of Season 2, D.J. wins a radio contest where she and one guest get to see the Beach Boys in concert. The “one guest” poses a problem, as Joey, Jesse and Danny all want to go, and D.J. is torn about what to do. However, this is not the only time the Beach Boys are on the show — Mike Love and Bruce Johnston come over to the Tanner house to experience some good “home cooking” from Rebecca. Of course, take-out is ordered, and the Beach Boys perform their song, “Forever,” in the basement. All in all, the Beach Boys appeared on the show on three separate occasions.
Jesse – “Have mercy!”
Whenever Uncle Jesse saw a girl, he would exclaim, “have mercy!” Whether it was Vanessa, Roxanna or Adrianna, he always pled for mercy when seeing a woman. He also started singing it in his jam sessions with his guitar, saying it when he had a romantic moment with Rebecca, or yelling it when he jumped off a cliff on vacation. It became his catchphrase so much that even Rebecca at one point says, “Just say have mercy and kiss me.” Throughout the show, the tone of his slogan became more of a “have merCY” or “have mer-cay!”
The Pink Bunny Picture
When the whole gang first moves in together, Stephanie is forced to move into D.J.’s room, leaving her room with pink bunny wallpaper behind. Uncle Jesse takes over the room with his Elvis posters, and he is immediately guilt-tripped by Stephanie for trying to cover up the wallpaper, because her mom had painted the bunnies for her before she died. Therefore, Uncle Jesse is forced to live in a room of pink bunnies. When Uncle Jesse marries Becky in season four and tells Michelle he is moving out, he gifts a cutout of the pink bunny wallpaper to her.
Joey’s most successful job as a comedian was portraying “Ranger Joe” on a children’s afternoon TV show. His accomplice, Mr. Woodchuck, is a wooden marionette puppet of a beaver. Apparently, Dave Coulier told Mashable that he had kept the puppet after the show’s last episode, although it was involved in an accident with Coulier’s dog and now lacks a face. Mr. Woodchuck was an important part of Joey’s character, and that’s why we can only hope that he will make his return (possibly without a face).
