It’s been 25 years since primetime viewers first got a glimpse at a different kind of all-American family on Full House, but on Saturday, Uncle Jesse, two-thirds of the Tanner trio and even Gibbler got together in L.A.
The reunion brought together the patchwork San Francisco family, including Candace Cameron Bure (D.J. Tanner), 36, Bob Saget (Danny Tanner), 56, John Stamos (Jesse Katsopolis), 49, Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner), 30, Lori Loughlin (Becky Katsopolis), 48, Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibbler), 36, Dave Coulier (Joey Gladstone), 53, and Scott Weinger (Steve Hale), 36.
But it wasn’t quite a full house: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (who shared the role of little Michelle Tanner) missed the festivities in honor of the ABC sitcom that began in 1987.
… Bure also shared pictures from the party, which included cake and a dance party to none other than ’80s-’90s heartstrings New Kids on the Block, professionally deejayed by Sweetin’s love, Morty Coyle.
“I just danced to three NKOTB songs in a row with @candacecbure and @JohnStamos,” Barber added as the festivities ran into the evening. “Life is complete!” Coyle posted the (hilarious) evidence from his vantage point on Twitter.
So why werne’t Mary-Kate and Ashley there? Ugh, come on. They’re way too classy for something as silly and juvenile as this. I mean, dancing to New Kids on the Block DJ-ed by a dude named Morty Coyle? No doubts they’d rather shave their heads, paint their asses Baboon Red, and defecate in Times Square.
All I know is that this looked like one bomb-ass reunion, and holy crap. Can you believe that it’s the twenty-fifth anniversary of this show? FULL HOUSE FOREVER, guys.
