Consider 11 things about Full House that even the biggest of fans may not know.

11. Crediting The Twins

Did you know: The producers of Full House didn’t want fans to know that Michelle was played by twins, so for the first seven seasons, they credited Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen as Mary-Kate Ashley Olsen. It is true that the twins’ mother considered pulling the girls after the first season, but more money was offered, and the popularity was presenting new opportunities for the toddlers. In the eighth, and final season of Full House on ABC, the twins were finally credited as individuals: Mary Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen.

Everyone is well aware that the Tanners lived in San Francisco. They were fans of the SF Giants, the Golden State Warriors and taking all of their friends to Fisherman’s Wharf. In reality, the show was shot in Los Angeles, and the only two times footage was gathered from San Francisco was for the opening, and the episode entitled, “Comet’s Excellent Adventure.”During the episode, Michelle takes Comet, the family’s golden retriever, for a walk, and he gets off his leash. The rest of the episode includes the Tanner girls chasing Comet throughout the city of San Francisco.
