  • One word: Reduclus

    What were the producers thinking when they wrote this episode. Come on feet!!! This episode should have never aired! Forgot this episode and watch grass grow!!!!!! If Full House ever makes a Season 8 Box set record over this episode!!!!!! Sorry folks but that's how I dislike this Michelle Episode.
  • You've got to be kidding me.

    I honestly don't know why they didn't just stop Full House before this episode and just gave Michelle her own show already. 90% of the episodes in this season are about Michelle and they're usually baby plots. I was very ticked off by this episode. First of all it was a dumb plot idea. Michelle's feet didn't look at all big. This plot would've worked for a kid show, but for what's supposed to be an adult comedy show it just did not work out. Also why the heck were DJ, Kimmy and Stephenie teasing Michelle like that in the beginning? How could they not think Michelle was getting upset by their teasing? Why did they act so immature? Kimmy, I can kinda understand and I can in a way understand Stephenie. But not DJ. The humor in this episode was very kid-like too. Since Michelle started growing up, the humor went totally downhill into kiddy humor. And the whole thing with Becky not being able to sing? C'mon! We know she can sing, so why'd the writers make it look like she couldn't? Oh well, guess we'll never know. Anyway, this is one of trhe worst episodes of Full House to date! My final grade is an F!moreless
  • An example of how Michelle's character became too much for "Full House" towards the end of the show's run.

    Of all the Full House episodes, this one showed a farily poor storyline with bad acting. First of all, Becki has shown that she is a fine singer multiple times, most notably in the third season Telethon. Secondly, Michelle's story about her feet is unnecessarily important. Her friends, for one thing, are completely unsupportive and annoying. There was no interesting plot, or any plot whatsoever. This is another Eighth Season episode that is, flatly, wasted on just Michelle. The Eighth Season was possibly the best, since the three girls (and the twins) are at great ages. However, in episodes like this, too much emphasis was on Michelle's perfect "Little Princess" lifestyle. Stephanie, DJ, and Kimmy all have equal acting talent to Michelle, if not better. Episodes like this should embarass the creators of Full House.moreless
  • Unoriginal, but some parts are funny.

    The storyline of this episode is sort of boring, but some parts are pretty funny. This episode is mostly about Michelle and her fear about her feet growing too big. My favorite part was Michelle's dream, where her feet grew really huge. Meanwhile, when the adults were singing to Nicky and Alex, Jesse realized that Becky's singing is really horrible, and tries to teach her how to sing nicely.

    Overall, this episode is somewhere around average. Some parts are really funny, and some parts are boring. (There's also something confusing in this episode: How could Becky sing so badly in this episode when she was singing so well in "Our Very First Telethon" in Season 3?)moreless
  • The entire episode smacks of filler.

    The main plot involves Michelle's feet, which were described as "healthy" (read: big). This worries her and she has a nightmare about her feet being the size of clown shoes...and growing (One clever reference is that Kimmy, of all people, brings the Odor-Eaters).

    Meanwhile, Jesse and the "House Lullaby Band" (including Danny and Joey) "reunite" in a sense and sing a lullaby to Nicky and Alex, only to have Becky join in...badly. (I've discussed this elsewhere) Jesse then spends close to five minutes of airtime (not devoted to Michelle) teaching Becky how to sing. Then, Jesse walks in only to hear Becky singing beautifully to Nicky and Alex. (See "Our Very First Telethon" review to see why this is so puzzling).moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • The "dramatic impact" music during Michelle's nightmares revealing her huge feet is actually an old "needle-drop" production music library cue, taken from Associated Production Music.

  • QUOTES (6)

  • NOTES (0)


    • The part of Michelle's nightmare where her feet begin to grow rapidly and eventually her toes stick out the kitchen door into the living room is an allusion to a scene in Alice in Wonderland. In Disney's animated version of Alice in Wonderland, made in 1951, Alice is in the White Rabbit's house and eats a cookie that makes her grow so large that she gets stuck inside the house.

    • The title of this episode alludes to the 1989 movie "My Left Foot" in which a character with cerebral palsy learns to write and paint with his only controllable limb--his left foot.
