Summary
   When Danny Tanner's wife Pam died shortly after the birth of their third daughter, he was very unsure of how to bring up three girls, D.J., Stephanie, and Michelle, on his own. Enter Jesse Katsopolis, Danny's brother-in-law, and Joey Gladstone, Danny's best friend, and you've got a hit TV show. There's not much funnier than three young men who know practically nothing about kids trying to raise three girls, one of whom is not even a year old. They've got to deal with diapers and bedtimes, bottles and first days of school. The show focused mainly on the guys' troubles trying to take care of the girls, but as the show progressed, episodes became centered around the girls as well. But that's not to say that the guys' lives came to a standstill. Danny became the host of "Wake Up, San Francisco!", Jesse finally settled down and married Nebraska-born Rebecca Donaldson, and Joey kept us entertained with his comedy routines. As the girls grew up, Danny, Jesse, and Joey had big problems to deal with. They had to deal with dating issues and driver's licenses, and they learned to live with the fact that the girls didn't need them all the time. There was so much going on in those 192 episodes that it's hard to sum the show up in a paragraph!

Michelle Elizabeth Tanner (Played by Mary-Kate and Ashley)
   Because of child labor laws, Mary-Kate and Ashley had to share the role of Michelle. Michelle started out as a baby on the show and was probably the source of the most problems for Danny, Jesse and Joey in the first episodes. They had to change her diapers, feed her, and comfort her when she cried. She became even more a part of the show when she could talk. For a little girl, Michelle had to deal with some big problems, such as choosing between her two best friends for a project in her class, not getting the lead role in her school play, and losing her great-grandfather, Papouli. She grew very close with her Uncle Jesse during the course of the show, and she was one of the biggest characters on the show toward the end of the series. She was, in fact, the center of the last 2-part episode, in which she fell off her horse and got amnesia.
