John Stamos Got Them Fired (Temporarily)

John Stamos found the process of acting with the very young Olsen twins to be challenging sometimes. It's fairly difficult to get babies or young children to do what they're supposed to do in front of the camera. Also, John noticed that the twins cried frequently on the set, according to People.com.

John thought that his work life might be easier if the Olsen twins were replaced with another set of twins, so he got them fired.  He soon discovered that things were just the same with other twins. Plus, he thought the second set of twins didn't look as good.

They Had To Wear Dentures During Filming

Since the twins were playing one character, they had to look the same.  But how do you make two people look the same when they don't lose their baby teeth at the same time? Hollywood magic in the form of dentures were used to ensure continuity in Full House scenes, according to Teenvogue.com. When Mary-Kate and Ashley wore their fake teeth, they looked the same from scene to scene.

While it seems strange to put dentures on very young kids, it's all about continuity.

Characters need to have the same look. The twin's character couldn't have different teeth missing in different shots. Hopefully, the dentures weren't too uncomfortable for the tots.

Their Fame Prompted The Divorce Of Their Parents

Did the twin's Full House fame put a big strain on their parent's relationship, and ultimately trigger the divorce of their Mom and Dad? Yes, it did, according to information found at Lifeandstylemag.com. Their parents divorced when they were nine and kids who are that age generally find the divorces of the parents to be extremely rough.

Apparently, the growing pressures of Mary-Kate and Ashley's fame caused a rift between their mom and dad that just couldn't be repaired. Relationships are complicated, so there were probably other factors that led to the split.  Still, having famous daughters probably changed their marriage a lot. It would almost have to.

Mary-Kate Felt Like A Performing Monkey

Mary-Kate has issues with being put to work so young. She hasn't been shy about expressing the fact that she felt like a performing monkey during her Full House years, and possibly afterward, according to

She has also said that she wouldn't want other children to have the same type of childhood that she had.

I see her point. Children aren't supposed to be working when they're infants, toddlers or of school age. They're supposed to be finger painting, watching cartoons, doing schoolwork and making friends. Mary-Kate and Ashley were too young to make decisions about their own lives when they started filming Full House.

They Were Surrounded By Grown-Up Humor On The Set

Grown-up humor seeped in on the set of Full House.

  Fortunately, the very little Olsen twins weren't able to understand most of it. They did sense that stuff was being said which was for adults. Bob Saget wrote a biography and he admitted that he had a particular sense of humor, according to the .

He wasn't the only cast member who occasionally told off-color jokes, although the cast did behave well in front of the twins most of the time. There is a lot of dull wait time on TV sets and boring lulls tend to provoke cast members to act up a little bit.

The Show's Sad Reviews At First

Did you think that Full House was a great show? Many critics hated its blandness. It wasn't one of those shows that wins major critical acclaim, especially at the beginning.

Critics didn't appreciate its vanilla qualities too much. In fact, they had a field day with Full House in their reports.

Mary-Kate and Ashley may have been too young to read the bad reviews, but they probably heard cast mates talking about the bad reviews. No one who works on a TV show wants it to get dragged by critics. These days, on , critics award season 1 of Full House a 40 percent rating, while viewers give it 78 percent.

Bob Saget & The Doll Incident

Bob Saget is a typical comedian who is used to getting a little wild with his humor. When he was pulled into Full House, playing the ultimate clean-cut character, he wasn't necessarily that wholesome character in real life.  He was actually miles away from being Danny Tanner in real life!

Sometimes, he'd act up on the set, including a time when he would make very unsavory gestures to a "stand-in" doll of Michelle Tanner (played by the Olsen Twins), according to . Saget had to use the stand-in doll during rehearsal times when the twins weren't available as babies and child actors aren't allowed to work for too many hours per day.
