This show, the anchor-point for ABC’s successful "TGIF" family-friendly Friday night programming, was similar to the theme of My Three Sons, except the kids had TWO Uncle Charleys in Uncle Jesse and Joey.
Jesse was the brother of Danny’s wife. Joey was an honorary uncle as he and Danny were pals since grade school.
A swing of the Michael Dorn Memorial Bat’leth to Alert Viewer Carlos for the info about Uncle Joey.
A tip of the Chuck Connors Memorial Cowboy Hat to Katie Burell (firstname.lastname@example.org) for the information about the stand-in "moms" of the Tanner kids. Thanks again, Katie!
…and a big toot on the Fred MacMurray Memorial Saxophone to "John Rompala, a.k.a. Lucky" for the details about Uncle Jesse’s relationship to Danny – – plus the news about how Mrs. T. met her unsavory end. Thanks, Lucky!
