    Full House: S3E5: Granny Tanny (Grandparents Day Series)

    Hey Tanner Fans,

    Angela Bowen here, the host of Oh Mylanta Holy Chalupas: An Unofficial Full House Fuller House Podcast.

    Today, in continuing with the Grandparents Day Series, I covered Full House S3E5: Granny Tanny, which aired on October 20, 1989.

    In this episode we get Doris Roberts (Everybody Loves Raymond) guest starring as Claire Tanner or as I refer to her in this episode Claire 2.0.

    Newly divorced as well as retired from the stationary supply business and now residing in Seattle, Washington, NOT Tacoma, Washington like in Season 1. I had to correct myself towards the end of the episode. She's come to visit and looking for a sense of purpose with no more work and no kids to raise she needs something to fill her days.

    Danny senses his Mom is becoming depressed and has the family act like they can't take care of the house without her help. Claire jumps at the chance to take care of everyone, making them elaborate Thanksgiving sized meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. She picks out Michelle's beautiful pencil bed (which I am so envious of)since Michelle proved that it's time to upgrade from a crib to a big girl bed which honestly is the safe way to go to prevent possible future injury of her climbing out of her what would be today, an unsafe crib with bars.

    Claire takes the job of being the caretaker so seriously that she takes it upon herself to move in permanently practically shoving Jesse and Joey out the door, telling them to get on with their lives. The guys say no way this is my family, I don't want to miss out on these girls lives, so Claire suggests the guys share a room and get bunk beds while she takes over Jesse's room, trying to convince herself she can fit 6 rooms of furniture in that small space as she measures the room.

    Danny finally puts on his big boy pants as he spills the beans about the lies of them needing her to wait on them hand and foo including the I Love Brussels lie he's been telling for over 20 years. They settle on her she moving into an apartment in the neighborhood instead of living under the same roof.

    Join me next week when we celebrate Fuller House Elias Harger (Max Fuller, DJ's middle child)birthday with Fuller House S2E5: Doggy Daddy, which aired on December 9, 2016.

    in this episode A not so typical day involves a dance audition, a toddler play date, four chickens, and a vet emergency. Matt comes to an important realization.

    Growing Pains: S3E3: Taking Care Of Business (In Honor Of Kirk Cameron's (Mike Seaver) Birthday)

    Growing Pains: S3E3: Taking Care Of Business (In Honor Of Kirk Cameron's (Mike Seaver) Birthday)

    Hey Seaver Fans,

    Angela Bowen here, the host of Show Me That Smile Again: A Growing Pains Podcast.

    Today, I covered a MIKE SEAVER Episode S3E3: Taking Care Of Business, which aired on September 22, 1987.

    In this episode morals and friendships are tested when Mike takes a job at a stereo store managed by a notorious troublemaker from his past.

    I gotta say, I really liked Boner (Mike's Friend) in this episode, he was my favorite, he's such a sweetie and has a good heart, honestly Mike could really learn a thing or two from him, Mike was a real pain the in butt this episode, I was happy he learned a valuable lesson.

    As for Jerry/Andrew Delish, he get that he was just doing his job, but we all know that he's just a garbage human being and hasn't changed since the pilot episode.

    I sure learned about about this bait and switch business that Jason confronts Mike about. I had no idea how serious that was and the other ways it is used to day.

    Next month I will be covering a BEN SEAVER Episode for Jeremy's Miller's Birthday, not sure which one yet, so stay tuned!

    Please Stay Safe, Stay Strong, and Stay Positive!

    Full House: S1E4: The Return Of Grandma (Grandparents Day Series)

    Full House: S1E4: The Return Of Grandma (Grandparents Day Series)

    Hey Tanner Fans,

    Angela Bowen here, the host of Oh Mylanta Holy Chalupas: An Unofficial Full House Fuller House Podcast.

    Today, I begin the first episode in a new series entitled Grandparents Day Series, Full House S1E4: The Return Of Grandma, which aired on October 9, 1987.

    In this episode an untimely visit from Danny's mom Claire, leaves them unprepared and the house looking uninhabitable. Shocked at Danny and the guy's unkempt ways she calls in reinforcements in the form of Irene Cochran (Jesse's Mom) and Mindy Gladstone (Joey's Mom) to help encourage the guys to clean up their act for the girl's sake or the mom's are moving in and it will really be a Full House.

    I enjoyed this episode. I was a lot of fun and who can forget Bubba the turtle. I can only hope that eventually Jesse released Bubba to his natural habitat or donated him to a zoo (ya know, like they did for Shorty the donkey in Season 8).

    I was rolling on the floor laughing (not literally) to Claire's reaction to thinking Michelle had turned into a turtle. (really, Claire?, too much jetlag, I guess)

    Join me next week when I dive into the next installment in the Grandparents Day series Full House S3E5: Granny Tanny, which aired on October 20, 1989.

    In this episode It's early Saturday morning and Michelle crawls for the first time out of her crib all by herself and gets a real big girl's bed from Grandma who comes on a weekend visit, and Danny learns a lesson.

    Full House: S6E20: Grand Gift Auto (In Honor Of Dave Coulier's (Joey Gladstone) Birthday)

    Full House: S6E20: Grand Gift Auto (In Honor Of Dave Coulier's (Joey Gladstone) Birthday)

    Hey Full House Fans,

    Angela Bowen here, the host of Oh Mylanta Holy Chalupas: An Unofficial Full House Fuller House Podcast.

    Today, in honor of Dave Coulier's Birthday, I've decided to cover Full House S6E20: Grand Gift Auto, which aired on March 16, 1993.

    In this episode Joey gets D.J. a car for her birthday, but the police show up with the news it's stolen and suspect Joey of being the thief. When the Tanners attempt to prove his innocence, Joey gets the impression that he's not appreciated in the family.

    I really enjoyed this episode, for years Joey has been seen as the funny guy by his family, but he feels the joke's on him when he buys DJ a used car for her 16th birthday and it is reported stolen by the owner. The family rallies around Joey in his defence by using all his goofy possessions like a Scooby Doo Nightshirt (I Want That Shirt), and TMNT Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Slippers (I Had Those Same Ones When I was 11, Leonardo) to save him from being arrested. Luckily for Joey the tough lady cop is wowed by his Turtle Slippers and he isn't take to jail.

    While the family celebrates, Joey is hurt and embarrassed as he lashes out at the family thinking he is the big family joke.

    I feel for Joey up to a point, but honestly this whole thing would have gone a lot better if Jesse or Danny had gone with him to see this car, granted Joey wanted it to be a surprise for DJ, but now he's out a bit of money, and sadly we don't know how much he laid down for the car.

    I loved the lady cop and thought the actress did a great job.

    This is a good life lesson for us all, if a deal seems to go to be true, it probably is, and also never go by yourself to purchase something from someone online. Don't go to someone's house, always meet in a public place, bring a friend in case things are shady. If you don't feel right about something, walk away.

    This little old lady as Joey describes her will be caught, she is the real thief. I'm sure the bank knows something, and I bet Joey isn't the first person she tried to get with that scam.

    Join me in October for the first episode in the Grandparents Day Series, I kick this off with Full House S1E4: The Return Of Grandma, which aired on October 9, 1987.

    In this episode an untimely visit from the guys' mothers turns the house upside down.

    Small Wonder: S1E20: Good Ol' Lou

    Small Wonder: S1E20: Good Ol' Lou

    Hey Everyone,

    Angela Bowen here, the host of She's A Small Wonder: A Small Wonder Podcast.

    Today, I covered S1E20: Good Ol' Lou, which aired on February 22, 1986.

    In this episode Ted's plan for physical fitness backfires.

    I liked this episode, Ted's insistence to get in shape and include the family after his coworker Lou went from 300lbs to 165lbs by joining a fitness center and Ted decides to program Vicki to be his physical fitness coach with disastrous results like jogging at 5:30AM and eating the most disgusting sounding yet supposedly healthy food for breakfast, lunch and dinner (Ted's idea, not Vicki's).

    Also a plus it was Brindle free!

    Join me next month when I cover S1E21: Like Father, Like Son, which aired on March 1, 1986.

    In this episode Ted pushes Jamie to try out for the football team.

A Wonder Years Podcast I recommend!

This is a great insightful podcast about my all time favorite show ever, the wonder years. literally grew up with this show. Kevin was 12 and I was 12 back in 1988 and there were tropes that actually helped me at times in life. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
