'Full House' reunion: John Stamos, others celebrate 25th anniversary (Photo)
It was not a full "Full House" reunion - but it did include a "drunk Gibbler."
John Stamos recently shared on Facebook a slew of photos as well as a video from a recent get-together with several of his co-stars of the hit TV show, which first aired about 25 years ago, in September 1987. The actors included Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, his on-screen wife Lori Loughlin and, yes, Andrea Barber, who played mischievous Kimmy Gibbler.
Notably missing - twins Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, who played Michelle, the youngest of the three daughters on the show. A spokesperson for the 26-year-old sisters, who are keeping busy nowadays by running a fashion empire in New York, had no immediate comment. The two have reunited with individual "Full House" cast members over the past few years.
In addition to the photos, Stamos, who played the girls' Uncle Jesse, also posted a homemade mobile phone video of Bure and Barber, Tweeting: "My contribution to #FullHouse25Years a drunk gibbler, me and deej singing step by step."
Bure, 36, played the eldest daughter, D.J., who is best friends with Gibbler. In the shaky clip, the two dance to the 1990s boy band New Kids On The Block's hit song "Step By Step," which was most popular when new episodes of "Full House" were airing.
"I'm Tweeting this [expletive]. "Kimmy Gibbler and ... DJ! DJ Tanner!" says Stamos, 49, turning the camera on Bure and Barber. (watch video)
Scott Weinger, a 36-year-old actor who played DJ's boyfriend Steve and is also the voice of Disney's Aladdin, also attended the reunion, which included a cake shaped like the "Full House" family's San Francisco home.
"Love my Full House family," Barber Tweeted. "Full heart. @candacecbure @bobsaget @DaveCoulier @JohnStamos @JodieTweetin @ScottWeinger."
Many of the actors have kept in touch over the years, especially via Twitter.
Sweetin, who is 30 and played middle child Stephanie, earlier this year Tweeted about getting into a car accident and, Bure, her on-screen big sister, contacted her publicly to offer messages of support.
Saget, who played the girls' father and Uncle Jesse's brother-in-law Danny Tanner, and Stamos are friends in real life. Saget, 56, went to watch the actor perform in the Broadway play "The Best Man" in August and posted a WhoSay photo with the two and co-star James Earl Jones. Saget said his "brother" Stamos gave a "remarkable performance."
Saget, unlike his character Danny Tanner, is in real life an edgy comedian whose jokes would make Aunt Becky lecture him about inappropriate language. He brought Stamos on stage for a surprise appearance during one of his comedy shows in California in 2008, as he performed his acoustic "Full House"-"Backstreet Boys" parody song "Danny Tanner Is Not Gay." The song also contains a sexual reference to Gibbler.
The Olsen twins reunited with Saget at Cool Comedy Hot Cuisine 2009 event, benefiting The Scleroderma Research Foundation, at the comedy club Carolines On Broadway in November 2009.
Stamos was joined by the sisters at Disneyland in California in 2005 (see photo). Sweetin Tweeted a picture of her with the actor at the adjacent Disney's California Adventure Park in January, when she was celebrating her 30th birthday (see photo).
Stamos wished his other "brother" Coulier, who is also a comedian and played Tanner's other friend and roommate Joey, a happy 53rd birthday on WhoSay and shared an old photo of the two sporting their "Full House" characters' signature mullet hairstyles.
"Happy birthday to my dear brother @DaveCoulier - couldn't find a pic of us, but found two lovely lesbians by a door," Stamos joked.
Coulier and Sweetin reunited for a web series called "Can't Get Arrested." The actor also cast Barber in a web short called "It's [Expletive]' Late with Dave Coulier," which marked the actress' first acting role since "Full House" ended in 1995. (watch video)
