'Full House' Cast Reunites for 25th Anniversary Without Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
Brace yourselves for this ridiculous revelation: 25 years ago yesterday, Full House aired its very first episode. Yep, folks. It has been that long. We know how old Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are, and yet this still doesn't seem possible.
Speaking of the Olsen twins, who shared the role of Michelle Tanner, they were the only original cast members not present for the reunion that took place Saturday to celebrate the beloved family sitcom's 25th anniversary.
But, John Stamos, Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Lori Loughlin, Andrea Barber and Scott Weinger (who portrayed Uncle Jesse, Danny Tanner, Joey Gladstone, DJ Tanner, Stephanie Tanner, Aunt Becky, Kimmy Gibbler and DJ's boyfriend Steve, respectively) carried on with the festivities anyway. And it sounds like they had a great time!
All the evidence we need is this video John Tweeted featuring Candace and Andrea (a few drinks in) dancing and singing along to the New Kids on the Block's "Step by Step." (There's another cast we would like to see reunite, by the way!)
"Kimmy Gibbler and Cand... what was your name on the show?" John asks from behind the camera.
"DJ!" Candace answers.
How could he forget?! John also shared several photos from the party on his Facebook.
And seriously, how ridiculously good-looking is Uncle Jesse, still? Have mercy!
By the way, we tracked down Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit, who played one of Jesse and Becky's twin sons, Nicky Katsopolis, on the show. He reveals that he and brother Dylan, who played Alex, weren't invited to the reunion party (burn!) but he doesn't seem to be holding a grudge about it — at least not via his Twitter.
Just for fun, check out this video, because someone helpfully spliced together each Full House opening sequence for all eight seasons. And then check out the pics!
