Full House is an American television sitcom that aired on ABC from September 22, 1987, to May 23, 1995.

Bad Qualities

  2. Some of the characters don't really have much memorable personalities.
  3. The sequel, Fuller House holds up the legacy pretty well, but unfortunately, it had some flaws that were not present in the original, especially in its first season. But thankfully, it did improve in the later seasons.
  4. The later seasons sometimes put too much focus on Michelle.
  5. Some jokes can be painfully unfunny.
  6. Unfortunately, it ended on a cliffhanger.


  • Jesse was originally named "Uncle Adam", until John Stamos decided that he liked "Jesse" better.
  • Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen got the part of Michelle because they were the only twin babies that didn't cry at the audition.
  • Bob Saget considered leaving the show after the first season due to his disapproval of the writing and story lines.
  • By the sixth season, the Olsen twins started to look so different from each other to the point that most audiences could tell them apart. The producers considered just giving Mary-Kate Olsen 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.
  • Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen appeared together onscreen four times during the show's run.
  • At first, the producers didn't want viewers to know that Michelle was played by twins. Originally, they were credited as Mary-Kate Ashley Olsen. In the eighth and final season, however, they were credited as Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen respectively.
  • In order for Michelle to get involved with comedic and serious moments, Mary-Kate Olsen chose to do the former while Ashley Olsen did the latter.
  • Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen nearly left the show after the first season because their real-life mother was concerned about them missing out on having a "normal" childhood. After a significant raise in salary from the show's producers, she agreed to let them continue. Their mother also let them stay due to the fact that they became so popular.
