Full House is the popular 90s sitcom that focused on the fundamentals of a diverse family. Living in San Francisco are three men who live together to help raise three young girls. The father, Danny Tanner, lost his wife in a car accident. He recruits the help of his brother-in-law, Jesse, and his comedian friend, Joey, to help him take on the task of raising his daughters. The comedy series first aired almost 30 years ago in 1987 and had 8 seasons before finally calling it quits in 1995. Although you may have grown up with this hilarious series, I am sure you didn’t know all of these Full House facts, at least I know I didn’t.
1. The Tanner home is located at 1709 Broderick Street in San Francisco, but only one episode was actually recorded there.

3. Before the show ever came about, Dave Coulier (Uncle Joey) was an usher in Bob Saget’s wedding.
4.Jesse had more careers than any character on the show. Some include: Exterminator, Elvis Impersonator, Assistant Kid’s Show Host (Mr. Egghead and Ranger Joe), Radio Show DJ, Pop Star, & Club Owner.
