Recently widowed sportscaster (later a morning talk show host) Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) is struggling to raise his three little girls – D.J. (Donna Jo, aged 10), Stephanie (5) and Michelle (six months old) – alone after his wife has been killed by a drunk driver.
He turns to his wannabe rock musician brother-in-law, Jesse Katsopolis (John Stamos), and his comedian best friend, Joey Gladstone (Dave Coulier), to move into his cramped, narrow, two-story Victorian home in the Lower Pacific Heights area of San Francisco with them.
The three men attempt to follow their chosen media-related careers and at the same time provide rock-solid examples for Danny’s daughters.
Over the eight years the show was on the air, viewers watched the Tanner children grow up, and by the time the series ended in 1995, baby Michelle (played alternately by identical twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen) was eight years old.
