  • This is how Full House could have been?

    John Posey is a decent actor but just wasn't right for the role of Danny. He didn't seem very emotional when talking about his dead wife and wasn't much of an authority father like figure. I also thought he was too much like Joey. Anyway, this episode is the same story as the aired pilot. But with longer scenes and some different lines.
  • I liked .

    So funny .

    this is the only episode where danny tanner is not played by bob saget. instead it is someone else. bob was at first asked to play the role but turned it down because he was on a sports program. but then he came and wanted to go on. yet there was a problem. the first episode was already made with a different actor for danny. so the director had to make a decision. he obviously picked danny. but he felt bad for the other guy so he made sure he had a good role in antor show. so now bob plays danny.moreless
  • Longer and stronger but that Danny!!

    The unaired pilot can stack well and badly against the official pilot. John Posey didn't click with me as Danny, but then again, I didn't see this version until well after I got very used to the main cast.

    On the plus side, many of the scenes were longer and stronger than the actual aired version. Some were funnier, like when Jesse and Joey are investigating Michelle (Joey takes some time to peek over and around the crib before physically checking her diaper). Some not so much (when Joey arrives, he dumps his clothes on the floor, and when he announces his clothes are all dirty, everyone backs away from them. In the actual show, Joey hands the pile to Danny, who drops them when Joey says they're all dirty a minute later).

    The pilot (either version) serves as a simple introduction to the characters and sets up the series perfectly.moreless
  • Dannys best friend joey moves in as well as his brother in law jesse. dj is upset she has to share her room with little sister stephanie so she moves into the garage. jesse and joey play dad and have there first chance at changing baby michelles diaper.moreless

    This is the unaired pilot for the 1987 tv sitcom full house. Its basically the same as the aired pilot. Major difference is instead of bob saget playing danny tanner john posey was cast because bob was to busy and unable to accept the part at the time. There are a few script changes also but mainly it is still the same. If you haven\'t seen this one you should. you can find it on the season 1 dvd of full house. i\'ll tell you now it will be very weird to see it because of john posey. but its a different look of what full house could have been like. check it out!moreless

  • NOTES (10)

    • This is the very first Full House episode. It was never aired and the role of Danny was played by John Posey.

    • Early in the show they credited Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen as one person because they did not want people to know they were two people playing the role of Michelle.

    • In the opening credits, instead of it saying Dave Coulier, it says his full name, David Coulier.

    • Ths is the first of many times when young Stephanie asks Uncle Jesse to do something, and Uncle Jesse responds "I don't want to do that." Stephanie says "Yes he does." Uncle Jesse says "No, he doesn't", and then Stephanie makes a crying face, and says "Yes he does!" and Uncle Jesse gives in.

    • John Posey was originally supposed to be Danny, but, soon after this episode was filmed, Bob Saget's schedule opened up. He was their top choice for the part, and Jeff Franklin felt very strongly that Saget belonged in this role, so they fired Posey on the spot.

    • Michelle was 6 months younger in this episode than the pilot with Bob Saget because it was shot earlier.

    • This episode is "Our Very First Show," except with John Posey

    • The ending theme for this episode was VERY diffent then the episodes with Bob Saget.

    • John Posey plays the role of Danny Tanner in this episode by the time the original pilot aired Bob Saget gained the role.

    • This episode was included on the Season 1 DVD released on February 8, 2005.On bonus features.
