Bob Saget was known to have two characters: one as a comedian with a “bawdy sense of humor” and another as a lovable patriarch.
The second character came from his years playing beloved TV dads on various shows, most notably on “Full House” and its Netflix spin-off “Fuller House”.
In the popular sitcom, the star, who died aged 65 on January 9, played Danny Tanner, a father of three whose mother has passed away. To help raise his offspring, Danny asked his friend Joey (Dave Coulier) and his brother-in-law Jesse (John Stamos) to move in with the family.
As well as providing touching learning moments for his daughters, Danny was known to be ridiculously groomed, as well as a charismatic and popular morning TV personality alongside Lori Loughlin’s Becky, who would later marry and have twins with Jesse.

Here’s a look at some of Saget’s best moments as Danny Tanner.
“There is a horse in my living room”
In a 1988 episode, Danny’s daughter DJ is desperate to own a horse and ends up buying one in secret in the hopes of proving that she is responsible enough to own a pet before her father finds out. .
However, when she is unable to make a weekly payment, DJ takes the horse home and brings it to the house.
When Danny arrives home, Joey and Jesse, trying to keep DJ out of trouble, grab Danny at the door, telling him to close his eyes so as not to spoil a surprise they have for him.
Eyes closed, Danny comes in, sniffs the air and says, “I know what the surprise is. Joey, you’re making that chili again.”

“There’s a horse in my living room,” he said before turning the incident into a deep conversation about trust, typical Danny Tanner fashion.
“Call the police, you’ve been robbed!”
Known for his adoration – bordering on obsession – for housekeeping, Danny struggled when he learned that a woman he was dating was rather slob.
After a date he described as “perfect”, Danny drops Karen off at her apartment and she greets him for coffee, warning him that she “wasn’t expecting company.”
“I bet you even make the perfect cup of -” he begins as Karen opens the door and turns on the light, revealing a messy apartment.
“Call the police, you’ve been robbed!” Tanner explains, unable to figure out another explanation for such a mess.
Karen explains that she has been so busy that she “hasn’t tidied up in a while.”
