Were you a fan of Full House when it was on, or did you warm up to it after the show ended? No matter when you started tuning into the Full family, we can all agree that the reason we kept coming back to this show was more than just the hilarious jokes, or the cutesy wiles of the Olsen twins, or even the charm of Uncle Jesse.

These are cool, but some of these on-set secrets will melt your heart!
