While it may be awhile before we see an on-screen reunion of the Full House
cast, that doesn't mean that the performers don't keep in touch.
Dave Coulier, Uncle Joey on the popular sitcom, is taking part in the first annual Bras for a Cause event. The actor will be hosting the event that will benefit Gilda's Club Metro Detroit, a non-profit that provides support for those affected by cancer.
As part of the event, there will be an auction of "Art Bras" that have been created by local artists, family members, and celebrities. Not only is Coulier hosting the event but he's also decided to donate an extra large bra, nicknamed "Full Blouse." To make the female undergarment extra special, he's enlisted his former Full House
castmates to sign it.
Thus far, those spreading the love are Bob Saget, Lori Loughlin, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber, Scott Weinger, and Coulier himself. And lest anyone think that the signatures aren't authentic, Coulier's been posting proof online. Take a look.

There have been so many revivals of old TV shows in recent years, why not a Full House
reunion? It turns out that John Stamos has already thought of it, at least twice.
centers around the household of Danny Tanner (Bob Saget), a widowed father who asks his brother-in-law Jesse (Stamos) and best friend Joey (Dave Coulier) to move in to help raise his three young daughters. The kids are independent D.J. (Candace Cameron), talkative Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), and tiny Michelle (Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen). Over time, the family grows and Jesse marries Becky Donaldson (Lori Loughlin) and they have twin sons, Nicky and Alex (Blake and Dylan Tuomy-Wilhoit). Frequent visitors to the house include D.J.'s zany friend Kimmy (Andrea Barber) and boyfriends like Steve (Scott Weinger), Viper (David Lipper), and Nelson (Jason Marsden).
The series debuted on September 22, 1987 on ABC. The sitcom wasn't an immediate hit but eventually became a cornerstone of ABC's Friday night line-up, averaging 15.6 million viewers at its peak. Despite still being in the top 30, the network cancelled the show in 1995 due to high production costs and a decline in viewers. There was talk of moving House
to the fledgling WB network, owned by the show's Warner Bros. studio, but it never happened. House's
last episode aired on May 23, 1995 with only a minor acknowledgment that the show had come to an end.
