I thought I was the only one who preferred her Full House episodes to feature as little of cutesy Michelle Tanner as possible. But a YouTube user has re-imagined the old-school sitcom without the presence of its littlest star, played by twins Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. They also suggest, in the video description, that perhaps Danny (Bob Saget) imagined Michelle in order to cope with the grief of losing his pregnant wife in a car crash.
It’s a little like Fight Club Minus Tyler Durden, with the key difference that the creator of Full House never intended us to think Michelle was imaginary. Right? (As Dangerous Minds notes, it’s also quite a bit like Garfield Minus Garfield.)
