John Stamos, the actor behind the beloved Uncle Jesse from classic ABC sitcom Full House, has opened up about which props from the show he has kept.
John Stamos has admitted to stealing a few specific prop pieces from the set of Full House. Stamos played the charming and musically gifted Jesse Kastopolis, endearingly known as Uncle Jesse, who lived with his brother-in-law Danny (Bob Saget) and best friend Joey (Dave Coulier) to help raise Danny’s and his late sister’s three young daughters. Stamos quickly became a fan favorite on the ABC sitcom throughout its 8-season run from 1987 to 1995.
In 2015, Stamos announced to the audience of Jimmy Kimmel Live! that a Full House reboot, titled Fuller House, was in the works for Netflix. The show ran for 5 seasons during which Stamos reprised his role as Uncle Jesse alongside the majority of the original cast. While the reboot was met with mixed reviews, the original sitcom remains a television classic.
Now, John Stamos has revealed that he has secretly held on to a few notable set pieces from the Full House set. While appearing on The Drew Barrymore Show (via ET), Stamos opened up about decorating his own home with memorabilia that reminds him of his time on the iconic sitcom. Check out what he had to say below:
I stole a lot of things from that show, from all shows… we were building a bathroom on our house and I said, ‘Oh I have these old doors from ‘Full House,’ but every time I walk out of the bathroom I expect people to clap and applause, you know when you make an entrance on a sitcom… And the couch too, the original couch.
Why Full House Is Still Popular After So Many Years
Stamos isn’t the only one whose nostalgia and love for Full House is still alive and well. The unconventional family structure and emphasis on the importance of friendship resonated with many of the show’s original viewers and has cemented it as a classic to this day. The sitcom was able to realistically portray the experience and hardships of a single father raising three distinctly different daughters, while also producing moments of levity and top-tier comedy through its depiction of the wonderful chaos that comes with a chosen family.
The portrayal of the Tanner family and friends was so widely endearing that the late Bob Saget was even known as “America’s dad” during the peak of the sitcom’s popularity. To this day, the ethos and lessons presented by the show hold up, making it one of the most beloved sitcoms of the late 20th century and cementing its status in the pantheon of heartwarming comedies. Despite the controversies and tragedies that have plagued some cast as of late, Full House remains a special thing for Stamos, the cast, and the audience. The balance of the abundant love in the household with equally relatable depictions of interpersonal and internal conflicts has ultimately made Full House a timeless work of television.
