Coronavirus: 'Full House' cast reunites for quarantine spoof of show's iconic theme song
No pandemic could stop this "Full House" reunion.
On Wednesday, six cast members and the creator of the hit sitcom reunited remotely to share "Full Quarantine," a coronavirus video spoof of the show's famous opening.
The video, posted on TikTok, Instagram and Twitter, sees John Stamos, Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber performing various quarantine activities in the style of the sitcom's iconic theme song.
In one clip, Stamos channeled suave Uncle Jesse to fix his hair. In another, Saget, who played single dad Danny Tanner, lathers on hand sanitizer. Coulier even seemed to reprise his role as wacky Uncle Joey by fishing for a slice a pizza.
Cameron Bure, aka big sister DJ Tanner, plunged her toilet while Sweetin, DJ's younger sis, refused to get out of bed.
Barber, who played the Tanner family's rebellious neighbor and DJ's BFF Kimmy Gibbler, rummaged through her refrigerator, only to find an empty carton of eggs.
The show's creator, Jeff Franklin, also got in on the fun, with a clip of him tossing a tennis ball indoors to his two golden retrievers, who both wear face masks.
The video ended with a message of hope: "Stay safe, and stay home. Unlike 'Full House,' this will all go away." "Full House" ran on television for eight years, from 1987 to 1995.
Absent from the video was Lori Loughlin, who played Aunt Becky on the series.
Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, are among 36 parents accused of paying into a vast criminal network led by Rick Singer, a college admissions consultant from California who took payments in exchange for either tagging their children as fake athletic recruits to get them admitted into elite colleges or fixing their college entrance exam scores. Singer pleaded guilty and is cooperating with authorities.
On April 1, attorneys for the couple and other accused parents moved to have federal charges dismissed in the scandal, arguing Massachusetts is an improper venue for the case, among other objections.
