My entire childhood essentially revolved around Full House's broadcast schedule.
Little did I know that while my developing mind was having a ball watching my favorite TV family fumble their way through life, there were all sorts of dramatic moments happening behind the scenes just waiting for me to read on the Internet later in life.
Guys, it's time to reveal those things both you and I never ever knew about Full House.
What's Up, Doc?
Bob Saget spent childhood dreaming of becoming a doctor.

Thank you, Bob Saget’s high school teacher.
My childhood would have been weird without you.

Once producers caught wind of ABC’s desire for a family show, they swapped in a few kids and voilà! Small screen gold.
Soap Opera Meet Cute
John Stamos and Lori Loughlin, who played the Tanner girls’ Uncle Jesse and Aunt Becky, first met while each working in the soap opera world.
Loughlin actually presented Stamos with the Emmy he won for his work on General Hospital.
The next one is shocking.
