* ActorAllusion: In part one of Season 6's finale, D.J. begins to see hallucinations of her boyfriend Steve in various Disney costumes. The first she sees is Steve as Disney/{{Aladdin}}, [[http://www.doctordisney.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Scott-Aladdin.jpg who was voiced by the same actor, Scott Weinger.]]
** In one episode, Joey picks up a plush toy of [[MuppetBabies baby Gonzo]] and does an imitation of him. Dave Coulier was a cast member of that series (though he was among other voices Animal, with Russi Taylor doing Gonzo).
* TheCastShowoff: Two examples being John Stamos' music skills (Stamos occasionally would tour with TheBeachBoys during this time) and Dave Coulier's cartoon voice impressions, particularly {{Popeye}} and [[RockyAndBullwinkle Bullwinkle]]. In a sort of inversion, the show demonstrated Bob Saget's skills as a host on [[ShowWithinAShow "Wake Up San Fransisco"]] that led to AmericasFunniestHomeVideos. Also, Stephanie dances at every opportunity.
* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Hey, it's the host of ''Series/AmericasFunniestHomeVideos''!
** Except for a few early episodes, Danny's mom is played by [[Series/EverybodyLovesRaymond Doris Roberts]].
** One of the Jennifers the most popular girls in Stephanie's grade school was played by Danielle Fishel better known as Topanga from ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld''.
** The Olsen Twins, that is all.
** Becky's cousin is [[Series/PerfectStrangers Larry Appleton]].
** Mike Seaver from Series/GrowingPains is D.J.'s cousin in one episode (Strangely enough he's also named Steve).
** T.J. from Series/SmartGuy (or maybe he's Tucker from Series/BabyDaddy) is one of Michelle's friends.
** [[Film/PetSematary Gage Creed]] is one of Michelle's pre-school classmates.
** This trope also applies behind the scenes as well: In addition to serving as creator and executive producer of ''Full House'', Jeff Franklin also is best known as creator and executive producer of ''Series/HanginWithMrCooper''.
*** Richard Correll directed four episodes and served as producer. Correll is best known for playing Richard Rickover on ''Series/LeaveItToBeaver'' and for co-creating ''Series/HannahMontana''.
*** Dennis Rinsler and Marc Warren wrote 33 episodes, as well as serving as producers, supervising producers, co-executive producers, and executive producers. Both are best known as creators and executive producers of ''Series/CoryInTheHouse''.
*** Tom Burkhard wrote nine episodes and served as co-producer. Burkhard is best known as co-creator and co-executive producers of ''Series/ZekeAndLuther''.
*** Rob Dames wrote eight episodes. Dames is best known as co-creator and co-executive producer of ''Series/{{Wipeout1988}}''. Dames' co-creator, Bob Fraser, wrote five episodes, and both served as supervising producers.
*** Russell Marcus wrote seven episodes. Marcus is best known as creator and executive producer of ''Series/BrandyAndMrWhiskers''.
*** Mark Fink wrote six episodes and served as co-producer and producer. Fink is best known as co-creator and co-executive producer of ''Series/HangTime''.

*** Charles Pratt, Jr. also wrote an episode. Pratt is best known as developer and executive producer of ''Series/TheLyingGame''.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Hey, it's Disney/{{Aladdin}}! (That's DJ's boyfriend Steve, by the way.)
** Danny is [[Series/HowIMetYourMother Future Ted Mosby]], [[spoiler: also a widower.]]
** Nelson (rich guy trying to woo D.J. during the final season). [[AGoofyMovie Max Goof]], [[SpiritedAway Haku]], and [[Disney/TheLionKing Kovu]].
** Dwayne is [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia Lloyd Irving]] and [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans Robin]].
** Younger Danny is [[WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail Feivel Mousekewitz]].
* NamesTheSame: This show debuted one year after [[Series/{{Alf}} a certain other show about a family called the "Tanners".]]
* OldShame: Bob Saget would like to get the show behind him and concentrate on his stand up act, featuring jokes that would make Danny Tanner blush.
* TheOtherDarrin: Danny and Jesse's mothers are played by different actresses in the first few episodes.
* TheOtherMarty: John Posey played Danny in the original unaired pilot, which is available on DVD. At the time the original pilot was done, Saget was unavailable due to working as a "comic correspondent" on the CBS Morning Program.
* PlayingAgainstType: Bob Saget, who was - and still is - an incredibly vulgar comedian with dirty language, played Danny Tanner. He stated in an interview that he played a cleaner role to earn money to support his family.
* RomanceOnTheSet : Dave Coulier dated and later (briefly) married the actress who played Grown Up Michelle on the Season 3 episode "Those Better Not Be The Days."
* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: ''Full House'' could be the definition of this trope. The fact that this show is a half-hour late-80s/early to mid-90s time capsule may explain its current popularity with adults, who enjoy the show as a nostalgia piece.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: See TheOtherMarty above. Also, the producers thought about replacing MaryKateAndAshleyOlsen after the first season because it was hard to work with infants. If that had happened they wouldn't be stars, and they managed to avert SoapOperaRapidAgingSyndrome
** The show originally had plans for a ninth season on Creator/TheWB. Candace Cameron who played DJ was going to go to college and would be making sporadic appearances. John Stamos didn't want to switch networks (at the time, The WB was still a fledgling network that had yet to receive full national distribution), decided the eighth season would be his last and the show ended up being cancelled.
