Fuller House is coming to Netflix in February and many people are talking about the revival of the series – that includes the man behind the animated series BoJack Horseman.
Raphael Bob-Waksberg spoke about a pitch he made for Fuller House in a recent interview with IndieWire. He is a fan of sitcoms from the 90s, and he had an idea for an episode of the series. The revival will focus on D.J. Tanner. She will return home after the death of her husband, and she will have three sons to raise. She will have some help from her family, but it will not be easy for her.
“My episode was going to be all about her feeling like she couldn’t tell her kids that she loved them because she was afraid that anyone she loved would die or get taken from her because she was cursed. And the guy I was talking to was like, “Yeah, I don’t think they’re going to make that episode.” [laughs] And I was like, “No, no, no. It would still be like an episode of ‘Full House’ — fun, full of jokes. And then like, Jesse would come up to her and say, ‘Deej, Deej, Deej, you don’t have to worry about people dying because you love them — because we all die. Your kids are going to die whether you love them or not. You might as well love them.'” And that was going to be my heartwarming ending. They did not love that. But that was going to be my pitch for “Fuller House.” If they’re interested, I will still write that episode for them.”
It might not be the typical Fuller House episode, but it is something that does happen in real life. Would you have wanted to see an episode like that in the revival? Tell us what you think.
