Two years ago, rocker Jesse (John Stamos, Jake in Progress
) and stand-up comedian Joey (Dave Coulier, Skating with Celebrities
) moved in with TV personality Danny (Bob Saget, most recently seen subverting his kindly dad image on Showtime's Huff
) and daughters after the death of their mother. The next year, Jesse started seeing Danny's co-host, Becky (Lori Loughlin), who became a mother figure to Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), D.J. (Candace Cameron), and Michelle (Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen). Taking a page from the Brady Bunch playbook, the year begins with a trip to Hawaii to celebrate their anniversary as an extended family. In the season premiere ("Tanner's Island"), Uncle Jesse even gets to sing a song by his hero, Elvis Presley (Blue Hawaii's "Rock-a-Hula Baby"). After they return, it's time for Stephanie and D.J. to head back to class. Stephanie's first day in second grade is a blast, while D.J.'s first day in junior high is a bust ("Back to School Blues"), but things improve once she stops trying so hard to fit in. Other third year changes include new dog Comet ("And They Call It Puppy Love"), D.J.'s first kiss ("13 Candles"), and birthday number three for precocious munchkin Michelle ("The Greatest Birthday on Earth"), who begins pre-school shortly afterwards ("Bye, Bye, Birdie"). Guest stars include Ed McMahon ("Star Search"), Scott Baio ("Dr. Dare Rides Again"), the Beach Boys' Mike Love ("Our Very First Telethon"), and Everybody Loves Raymond
's Doris Roberts as Grandma Tanner ("Granny Tanny"). --Kathleen C. Fennessy
