10 times the Tanners got out of the Full House
Whether it was a full-fledged vacation or a quick day trip, the Tanner household typically didn't squander an opportunity to get out of the house.
Some of the most wholesome moments across Full House were within the walls of the Tanner household. Life lessons, growing pains and plenty of laughs were shared in the northern California home. From visiting Los Angeles on a trip with Joey, to Lake Tahoe for a live talk show, the group took nearly every opportunity to get out of the house, too.
Though the Tanners, along with the rest of the gang, like to get out and about, it wasn’t always easy doing so.
With plenty of trips to the mall and schools aside, here’s a look at 10 times the Tanner household got out of the house.
1. Sea Cruise
After D.J., Stephanie and Michelle spend the night with their grandma, it ends up being a ''boys night'' for Danny, Jesse and Joey. Rather than go to a party on Lake Tahoe, the location of a ''Marilyn Monroe look-alike night,'' Jesse and Joey agree to go fishing with Danny. What is supposed to be a night of ''male bonding'' turns into a party after all, when Jesse's long-lost friend Roxanna shows up with a pair of friends.
2. Daddy's Home
After missing Stephanie's recital and a shopping spree with the rest of the group because of work, Danny feels guilty he's missing out on so much when it comes to his daughters. In typical Tanner fashion, he does his best to make up for it, taking the girls on a pair father-daughter days, allowing them to choose whatever they want to do. The episode doesn't follow Danny and the girls out and about, but we know they have a good time exploring San Francisco based on the prizes they bring back!
3. Our Very First Christmas Show
The phrase ''home for the holidays'' doesn't effect the Tanner household, as the squad opted for a white Christmas in Colorado during season two, for the ''first-annual Tanner family Christmas reunion.'' With their bags packed and Joey's Santa Clause suit stowed, the group boards their flight to Colorado on Christmas Eve. Everything seems to be going smooth until a snowstorm forces an unexpected landing, one that keeps the family in an airport until morning. What started as a trip away the Tanners wanted to forget, ended up being a very memorable episode, thanks to some holiday magic!
4. Luck Be A Lady (Part 1 & 2)
This time the family does pack up and go to Lake Tahoe for Danny and Becky's first live and on-location talk show, located in a casino resort. Jesse has aspirations of saying the three magic words to Becky, but things take a sour turn after a jealous rage causes them to break up on live television. Meanwhile, Joey thinks he's won big on the slots, that is until Danny and casino security find out it was D.J. and Stephanie that put the winning dollar into the machine. It's safe to say this trip away from San Francisco was an eventful one.
5. Tanner's Island
Signifying the two-year anniversary of Jesse and Joey moving in and becoming a part of the household, Danny plans ''seven days and seven nights of non-stop family fun'' with a trip to Hawaii. Danny's ''clipboard of fun'' organizes everyone's activities for them. What wasn't on the itinerary was getting lost on a deserted island, or what the group thought was deserted!
6. Viva Las Joey
It's the opportunity Joey has been waiting for and one he can't pass up: a performance in Las Vegas, opening for the famous Wayne Newton. Joey hops on the next flight out and naturally, the entire house joins him. Joey's estranged father shows up on the strip to watch the show, after a message was left by D.J. and Stephanie, telling him to meet the group there. What started out as a game-changing trip for Joey's career, turns into a game-changing trip for the father-son Gladstone combo.
7. Joey Goes Hollywood
Joey heads for the bright lights of Hollywood for an audition for a new show with prolific actors Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello. After landing the part, he invites the rest of the family, who all want autographs, to join him in southern California for the taping of the pilot episode. The trip to La-La land sees Joey's new show get picked up as a series, but one he doesn't need to be in front of the camera for.
8. Come Fly With Me
The Tanners are no strangers to airports, and for this season six opener, that's exactly where the family is, as D.J. returns from her eight-week trip in Spain. This trip to SFO was supposed to be a welcome home trip only, but Stephanie and Michelle apparently had other plans. After following a boy onto a departing flight, they overstay their welcome as the plane pushes back. Thinking it's a quick hop to Oakland, California, the girls find out the jet is bound for Auckland, New Zealand.
9. Road To Tokyo
The price of fame can be overwhelming for some, but not for Uncle Jesse. That is until the fame goes to his head. After finding out his song is atop the charts in Japan, Jesse, Becky and their boys fly out to promote it on a new television series. Upon arriving in Tokyo to screaming fans, Jesse falls in love with a new lifestyle. That new lifestyle causes a rift between he and Becky when the record company wants the rockstar to tour all of Asia for the next year.
10. The House Meets The Mouse (Part 1 & 2)
Jesse get's a gig at Disney World in Florida, which aligns with he and Becky's second anniversary. Looking for some quality time together, away from the house and the rest of the family, Jesse books the honeymoon suite. The trip for two quickly changes into yet another house-wide vacation opportunity. In the two-part season six finale, it's up to Mickey Mouse to find Michelle and it's up to Danny to take the next step in he and Vicky's relationship.
So Papillon claimed to escape from Devil's Island, but since he was a criminal, no reason for him to be there.
Wouldn't you know it would be about Full House.
I thought it was overwhelmingly popular enough, not to require an additional promo. What about the new or long lost shows coming back to the Summer Block Party?
Too, often spent during the overnight of "owl-hours."
Am surprised I haven't been banned yet for going over the limit of allowable words used per week!
The one that comes immediately to mindwas set in a summer camp, with Michael J. Fox and Nancy McKewon.
In the seventies, there were disaster films. "Long walk to Daylight", people trapped in the subway, no real word on what happened. Much later, there was a Sylvester Stallone film along the same lines. Heatwave! With David Huddleston (he was on The Waltons, but I now see he was Sherriff Bridges in The Homecoming). Magic Carpet, with Susan St James. In Search of America, where Jeff Bridges convinces his parents to travel the US on a bus. Tyne Daly, Sal Mineo and Glynn Terman are some of the hippies they met. Sarah T: Portrait of a Teenage Alcoholic. Gee, Mark Hammill is in that one. And the infamous Born Innocent. Killdozer.
And that's just a few when I started watching them.
Then there's always "To Rome with Love", a whole series set away from home.
