  • Episode Description
  • In the wake of his wife Pam's tragic death in a car accident 4 months ago, widowed sportscaster Danny Tanner must now say good-bye to his mother, who has spent the past few months living at the house. With three daughters under the age of ten, Danny convinces his best friend Joey Gladstone and rock-n'-rolling brother-in-law Jesse Cochran to move in temporarily. These two makeshift "junior dads" have their hands full helping with the kids and adjusting to a new lifestyle, but the biggest challenge is with oldest daughter D.J., who is not coping very well with these family changes.moreless

    Notes (9)

    • Stephanie Tanner was not yet developed when Jeff Franklin originally created the show, but when he saw little actress Jodie Sweetin on another television series, he liked her so much that he built the Stephanie character just for her. She never auditioned for it, and nobody else tried out for the part. Dave Coulier has said that Sweetin was always so precocious, funny and natural with her lines, that everyone predicted she would become the star of the show (although Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen ended up receiving that honor, once they got a bit older).

    • In the Syndication package on UPN, the opening credits never credit the cast.

    • This is the only season in which Rebecca doesn't appear in any episode.

    • In syndication, the regular theme song is used for the first season instead.

    • If Alice Hirson (Danny's mom) looks familiar to you, it may be because she also played Annie Camden's mother in the hit WB show "7th Heaven."

    Trivia (8)

    • In the first season, Jesse's last name was Cochran, but in the second season it was changed to Katsopolis because of John Stamos' Greek heritage.

    • We learn in this episode that Kimmy has three sisters, although the story with her siblings was very inconsistent. Sometimes she was an only child, and other times she had a brother.

    • When this episode was shown on ABC Family, the entire diaper change sequence was cut. On Nick at Nite, the diaper change sequence is intact, but the full opening was replaced with the standard shorter opening, like when all Season One episodes aired on that channel, plus some footage of Danny helping Grandma getting ready to leave was cut, as well as Joey's Pee-Wee Herman impression.

    • The original role of Danny Tanner was played by John Posey; before Bob Saget became available.

    • The Olsen twins went on to make a phenomenally huge career for themselves beyond Full House, but this was the only role they had to audition for. Every other movie they did was created for them.
