10 things you may not know about the TV show, “Full House”

Fancy yourself a Full House fan? Here are some facts that you may not know about the classic TV show:

  • Ray Romano auditioned for the role of Danny Tanner.
  • Stephanie’s catchphrase, “How rude!” was initially an ad-lib by actress Jodie Sweetin, which caught on so well it became a regular line.
  • Lori Loughlin is actually third cousins with Priscilla Presley, which was the tipping point for her casting, as that would make for an interesting trait for Jesse’s love interest.
  • It’s common knowledge that Jesse’s last name in the first season was “Cochran” and changed to “Katsopolis” from season 2 and on. However, Joey’s original last was “Goldstein” instead of “Gladstone.” It was changed because Joey did not look Jewish enough.
  • Everyone knows that Michelle was played by twins. The Twins on the show, Nicky and Alex, were played by a set of Quadruplets.
  • Joey’s girlfriend in the 7th season, Roxy, was originally meant to be played by Dave Coulier’s then-girlfriend Alanis Morisette. She had to back out at the last minute due to scheduling conflicts and was replaced by actress Felicia Michaels. It’s rumoured that Coulier and Michaels sparked up an affair, which became the subject of Morisette’s hit song “You Oughtta Know.”
  • A plot line involving DJ becoming pregnant and finally deciding to have an abortion was planned for the 6th season but was deemed to edgy for the show’s family friendly tone, and was scrapped.
  • When asked in interviews which Olsen twin they liked better, most cast members stated that Ashley was the easiest to work with and that Mary-Kate was all too often troublesome.
  • The infamous house in San Francisco, shown in exterior shots and known as the Tanner’s house, is rumoured to be haunted and/or cursed. Between 1978 and 2004, 3 suicides and 2 murders took place in the house.
  • Writers of the show have said in interviews that if they went on to do the final 9th season, it would be revealed in the last episode that the whole series would have been a dream. It would cut to a terrible car wreck with Danny Tanner waking up, seeing his 3 daughters and wife mutilated beyond recognition in pools of blood, followed by his horrified screams. The last scene would have been Uncle Jesse receiving the terrible news on the phone, then riding off into the sunset on his Harley.
