Full House: 10 Things That Haven't Aged Well

Airing from 1987 to 1995, Full House remains one of the most beloved sitcoms of all time, even over 30 years after it premiered. Chronicling the lives of the extended Tanner-Katsopolis-Gladstone family, and the crazy adventures they all get up to while living under one very, very crowded roof, the series is still beloved for its wholesome messaging and cheesy cutesy humor.

With the likes of John Stamos, Bob Saget, and the Olsen twins bolstering its cast, the series went on to be a hit in its original run, but has ostensibly become even a bigger hit in the years of reruns and streaming. But as a result of being over 30 years old now, the series is full of storylines that never would have made it to air today. We look at 10 of them.

10 Quotes From Full House That Are Still Hilarious Today

Watching Full House was a rite of passage for '90s kids. The corny sitcom aired for 8 seasons from 1987 until 1995 and followed single father Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) trying his best to take care of his three adorable kids after his wife passed away. Thankfully, his pal Joey Gladstone (Dave Coulier) and brother-in-law Jesse Katsopolis (John Stamos) moved in so they could help out.

Flashback: John Mayer Plays With Bob Weir for First Time, Giving Rise to Dead & Co.
The Grateful Dead ceased to exist the minute Jerry Garcia died on August 9th, 1995, but they still had an enormous audience and the remaining members spent the next two decades trying to find ways to keep the music alive on the road. They called themselves everything from the Other Ones to the Dead to Furthur as members of the original band came and went, but the one constant challenge was finding a frontman. Jimmy Herring, Warren Haynes, John Kadlecik, and Trey Anastasio all gave it a shot, but they were all temporary fill-ins.

WarnerMedia Streamer Eyes Reboots Of Warner Bros TV TGIF Comedies Like ‘Step by Step’, ‘Perfect Strangers’ & ‘Family Matters’

WarnerMedia Streamer Eyes Reboots Of Warner Bros TV TGIF Comedies Like ‘Step by Step’, ‘Perfect Strangers’ & ‘Family Matters’
Exclusive: More than three years ago, Netflix successfully opened a new area of original programming, the family sitcom, with a reboot of Warner Bros TV’s Tgif comedy Full House. The sequel series was a breakout hit, tapping into nostalgia for those who had grown up with the original series while also drawing a new generation of viewers.

That success was probably not lost on WarnerMedia executives as they are prepping the launch of a streaming platform to rival Netflix and have been discussing with Warner Bros TV brass library titles they can exploit for the new service.

I hear the WarnerMedia streamer is eyeing reboots of other Wbtv-produced classic Tgif comedies, like Step by Step, Perfect Strangers, its spinoff Family Matters, as well as Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper. Sources stressed that talks are in exploratory stages, and it’s unclear whether any of the potential revivals would come to fruition,

John Stamos Has Ideas For Another Full House Spinoff
Fuller House may currently be heading into its fifth and final season, but John Stamos doesn't think this has to be the end of the story of this family. "I don't think it's done either," he told E! News while promoting the annual 4th of July concert A Capitol Fourth, which he hosts. "I think there's a play that we go backward, like what happened before?" "If you remember in the pilot of the show, my sister Pam dies, and that's why it's the three men raising the three girls, so I'd like to explore that—the brother/sister, maybe go back. We'll see," he continued. Full House was about Danny (Bob Saget), Jesse (Stamos), and Joey...

Bob Saget Remembers Lew Klein: "He Saw a Sparkle in People"

I enrolled in Lew Klein’s class at Temple University and the description said something like, “Would you like a career in show business?” Everybody on Earth checked yes — except for really smart people.

My meetings with Lew were not in a classroom situation; it was always one-on-one, kind of like an introduction to therapy, just an hour of sitting there and him asking questions like, “What do you want to do with your life?” Then he would say, “I know this guy who might be a good person for you to meet.” He saw ...

Netflix's 'Historical Roasts' With Jeff Ross Serves Up "A History Lesson for Millennials"

Netflix's 'Historical Roasts' With Jeff Ross Serves Up
After years roasting such pop culture figures as Justin Bieber and Pamela Anderson, Jeff Ross is diving into the past with his newest project, Netflix’s Historical Roasts.

“Nothing is off-limits because no one’s going to complain,” says the Ross of the series’ long-dead targets, among them Bob Saget’s Abraham Lincoln and Jaleel White’s Muhammad Ali. “When I roasted Donald Trump, he was very sensitive about jokes about his finances.”
