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.

No Crying Allowed
Nearly Not Bob SagetBeloved Tanner family leader, Danny Tanner, would not have had the same psycho-neat-freak-yet-lovable-doting-dad feel had it not been for Bob Saget. Producers, however, nearly hired actor John Posey for the role. He even shot a few test scenes and everything. Oh, Mylanta!
Those Olsen Twins Started Lookin’ Real Different
