Show generally

Corrected entry: In the episodes where Michelle is a toddler, during the opening, you can see her point to the camera during the car/bridge part. Joey tries to make it look cute by laughing and pushing her arm down.

Correction: She's a baby. She could be pointing at one of the many seagulls that fly around the Golden Gate Bridge.

Show generally

Corrected entry: The house from the inside in the living room has the bay windows and then several feet and then the stairs, the house from the outside however has the bay windows and then the house ends. There is no room for stairs.

Correction: It is an illusion that the bay windows stop at the edge of the archway. If you look closely you will see that the windows extend beyond the archway and the stairs at the edge of the house line up with the edge of the window.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the opening credits, the camera closes in on the Tanner home, opposite a park. However, whenever anyone opens the front door throughout the series, you see houses opposite the Tanner's home.

Correction: In the opening credits the "Tanner house" is not in the background of where they are having their picnic. The houses in the background are actually a landmark in San Francisco called the "Painted Ladies". The Tanner house set actually just used a local house that was located at 1709 Broderick St in San Francisco. If you watch the houses next to the Tanner house they are not the same as the houses in the background at the park. There are houses across the street from the real house they used as the set.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the first few episodes of Full House, uncle Jesse is introduced as Jesse Cochran. In later episodes he is known as Jesse Katsopolis.

Correction: This is actually addressed in an episode. Jesse was using Cochran as his last name because it sounded more like a rock star name. They changed this because they wanted to give the family a kind of heritage and they chose Greek.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the show, John Stamos's character's last name changes from Cochran to Katsopolis. I wonder if this change occurred sometime between the three different women used to play his mother and the two different men used to play his father.

Correction: Jesse's last name changes because his family wanted to really honor their Greek heritage, so they changed their name from Chochran to something more Greek, Katsopolis. I believe it was just after a relative from Greece visited. Jesse felt that he should be embracing his roots, and changed his name to his family name. I am not sure if it was specifically discussed at length in the episode, but implied.

Show generally

Corrected entry: The outside of the Tanners house seems small and the neighborhood seems cramped but when you are inside their house it is big.

Correction: That's the way MANY houses are in San Francisco; very narrow, but long. The Tanner house models this format. If you notice, the rooms extend throughout the house from front to back a lot more than side to side.


Show generally

Corrected entry: All three of the Tanner children are blondes with blue eyes. Well if their father has dark hair and their mother was Greek (with dark hair and Mediterranean features), it is genetically impossible for all three children to be blond with blue eyes. Those traits are recessive.

Correction: If both their father and mother carry the recessive genes it is entirely possible. Not very common, but I know a family who it has happened to.

The episode when they show the mom she has blonde hair.

Our Very First Promo - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: In episode 10 (Joey's Place) the Tanner family move Joey into the garage, redecorating it so the entire place is filled with Joey's furniture, but in this episode it shows the characters in and out of the garage which is completely empty and back the way it was before Joey moved in. Later in the episode Joey's stuff is out of the alcove again.
