Full House centers around the lives of the Tanner family. Danny Tanner, played by Bob Saget, is the father of three girls who has lost his wife. To help him in raising the girls his wife's brother, Jesse Katsopolis, played by John Stamos, and his best friend Joey Gladstone, played by Dave Coulier, move in with him. The girls prove to be more than a handful for three young men who have no experience in raising children. The show is a comedy which occasionally touches on more meaningful subjects such as bullying or under age drinking. The girls D.J., Stephanie and Michelle all have different personalities which adds to the interest of the show. D.J. Is the oldest and is constantly trying to assert her independence. Stephanie is the middle child who is exceptionally bright for her age. Stephanie often provides the comic end to the banter between the various adults with her one-liners. Michelle is the youngest and often uses her cuteness to get what she wants. The girls often fight between themselves as most siblings do, which often results in a punishment being handed down by their father. The men in the household also have their own personalities which enhance the interactions in the show. Danny is the responsible one who always tries to do the best thing for his girls. Jesse is a free spirit with a bit of a wild side. He has a rock band and drives a motorcycle. He is also very handsome and enjoys dating various women without forming any real attachments to any of them. Joey is an actual comedian on the show who works for a children's television show. Joey has his room in the basement which later becomes a recording studio for Jesse. The show takes a lighthearted look at raising children as single parents. The plot of having three men raising three girls in one household adds to the mischief and humor, while also showing the nurturing side men can have.
