Danny Tanner was the perfect dad. He cooked, he cleaned, and he still made time for some amazing family adventures. He was kind and calm. He could cook dinner, help with homework, and finish your little sister’s craft project… all at the same time. No matter what was going on in life, he always had the right answer.

And looking back, I can’t blame her. It was 30 minutes of pure magic. The Tanner family had more fun than any real family, ever! And best of all, they had Danny as a dad. Each and every week, one of the girls would have a life-altering crisis. But just a hug and a few words from Danny Tanner and everything was perfect. This happened every single week. No matter how bad a situation was, it was resolved by the end of every show. From heartache to joy in under 3o minutes.
