Full House Cast Reunites for 25th Anniversary
It's been 25 years since primetime viewers first got a glimpse at a different kind of all-American family on Full House, but on Saturday, Uncle Jesse, two-thirds of the Tanner trio and even Gibbler got together in L.A.
The reunion brought together the patchwork San Francisco family, including Candace Cameron Bure (D.J. Tanner), 36, Bob Saget (Danny Tanner), 56, John Stamos (Jesse Katsopolis), 49, Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner), 30, Lori Loughlin (Becky Katsopolis), 48, Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibbler), 36, Dave Coulier (Joey Gladstone), 53, and Scott Weinger (Steve Hale), 36.
But it wasn't quite a full house: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (who shared the role of little Michelle Tanner) missed the festivities in honor of the ABC sitcom that began in 1987.
"Love my Full House family," Barber Tweeted alongside a sweet snapshot of the cast. "Full heart." She also posed with Bure ("#TVBFFs," she wrote.)
Bure also shared pictures from the party, which included cake and a dance party to none other than '80s-'90s heartthrobs New Kids on the Block, professionally deejayed by Sweetin's love, Morty Coyle.
"I just danced to three NKOTB songs in a row with @candacecbure and @JohnStamos," Barber added as the festivities ran into the evening. "Life is complete!" Coyle posted the (hilarious) evidence from his vantage point on Twitter.
And now that everyone is grown up, there seems to have been plenty of adult beverages to fuel the aforementioned fun. "my contribution to #FullHouse25Years a drunk gibbler, me and deej singing [New Kid on the Block's] step by step," Stamos Tweeted, backed by some video evidence.
A drunk Gibbler, indeed: "Full House rocks! Also, I may have had a couple drinks," Barber Tweeted.
These days, many of the cast members have families of their own, including Barber and Bure, and different career paths, such as the Olsen's fashion empires. And not everyone looks back at the show with purely fond memories.
"I haven't watched a full episode in, I'm sure, 20 to 25 years," Stamos, who capped off a Broadway run earlier this month, told PEOPLE in August. "If I see it on, I will flip. I mean, if [nothing other than] my hair being so gosh darn ridiculous. Didn't anybody tell me that was going to haunt me years later?"
