** David Ketchum wrote an episode. Ketchum is best known for playing Agent 13 on ''Series/GetSmart''.
* HilariousInHindsight: In the 1993 episode ''Be True to Your Preschool'', Becky is horrified to find out Jesse tried to embellish their story to get the twins into a prestigious preschool and tells the admissions team what happened. In March 2019, Becky’s actress, Lori Loughlin, got indicted on federal charges for bribing a University of Southern California crew coach with $500k to let her daughters (who’d never rowed) be athletic recruits to get into a school they wouldn’t otherwise be qualified to get into. She was indicted but her husband was not because she was the one actively planning the scheme and signed the checks.

** John Stamos (Uncle Jesse) is also best known for playing Dr. Tony Gates on ''Series/{{ER}}'' and for playing Blackie Parrish on ''Series/GeneralHospital''.
** Bob Saget (Danny) is also best known for hosting ''Series/AmericasFunniestHomeVideos'' and for voicing the future Ted Mosby in ''Series/HowIMetYourMother''.
** Dave Coulier (Joey) is also best known for voicing Animal, Bean Bunny, and Bunsen in ''WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies'' and for voicing Peter Venkman in ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters''.
** Candace Cameron Bure (D.J.) is also best known for playing Summer Van Horne on ''Series/MakeItOrBreakIt''.
** Lori Loughlin (Aunt Rebecca) is also best known for playing Jody Travis on ''Series/TheEdgeOfNight'' and for playing Abigail Stanton on ''Series/WhenCallsTheHeart''.
** Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibbler) is also best known for playing Carrie Brady on ''Series/DaysOfOurLives''.
** Scott Weinger (Steve Hale) is also best known for voicing the title character in ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}''.


* 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 [[WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies baby Gonzo]] and does an imitation of him. Dave Coulier was a cast member of that series (though he actually voiced Animal, with Russi Taylor doing Gonzo).



* CastingGag:
** Candace Cameron (D.J.)'s big brother Kirk Cameron appeared in a season one episode as D.J.'s favorite cousin, who was [[LikeBrotherAndSister like a big brother]] to her. What's somewhat [[strike: irksome]] [[HilariousInHindSight Freakin Hilarious]] about this is that he shares the same name as D.J.'s eventual boyfriend.
** Also, in a season five episode, Michelle runs away to her friend Teddy's house and spends some time with his family. Teddy is portrayed in the series by Tahj Mowry, and Teddy's older sister is played--in a double-cast role--by Mowry's real-life older sisters Tia and Tamera Mowry.
** In the Walt Disney World episode, at several points, D.J. hallucinates her boyfriend dressed as various Disney characters, including WesternAnimation/{{Aladdin}}. Her boyfriend was portrayed by Scott Weinger, who voiced Aladdin in the movie, sequels, and TV series (and still voices him today).

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: 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. One great example is the 1993 episode "The House Meet the Mouse" where the Tanner family visits [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Disney World]]. The most current movie at the time was {{Disney/Aladdin}} in 1992, and later attractions such as Animal Kingdom (opened in 1998, five years later since the episode premiered) are not mentioned. Later in the episode, Danny and Vicky are in a restaurant where the former is about the propose the latter, got a call from the restuarant's owner that Michelle is missing. While losing a child is still a great concern, [[TechnologyMarchesOn with cell phones being more affordable nowadays]] and [[SocietyMarchesOn even some kids around Michelle's age carry them]], the problem could be resolved quicker by simply calling her.

* PlotHole: Later in the series, Jesse moves into the attic with Rebecca where they have their twins, and Joey moves into the refurbished garage, their rooms (Jesse's room used to be Stephanie's room, and Joey's room presumably was a guest room) go completely missing for the remainder of the series. The most obvious reason for this being that they wanted to keep the Michelle and Stephanie characters in the same room, and couldn't come with with a decent excuse what with there being two free rooms just across the hall one of them could move into.
** This is not a plot hole. Joey first lived in the alcove in the living room until the garage was refurbished into a room and later a recording studio once Jesse and Rebecca moved into the attic.

Added DiffLines:

* ContractualPurity: How Bob Saget felt about his stint on this and his stint on ''America's Funniest Home Videos'', both of which required him to act like a smiling, family-friendly milquetoast. He now claims, in his [[VulgarHumor extremely profane]] standup act, "Those shows gave me [[HollywoodTourettes Tourette's]]."
** Hell, every actor on the show falls victim to this. Let's just be grateful Bob was one of the few who ''didn't'' turn to hard drugs to recover from being in the show (the other being Candace Cameron).
