The possibility of a 'Full House' reunion has shook the hit show's loyal fan base with speculation and excitement. The family friendly show which aired from 1987-1995 remains a staple on TV, and even the younger generation is taken up with old reruns. Earlier this week, rumors of a sequel created quite the internet buzz. While these reports haven't been shot down, Bob Saget previously made it known that not ALL of the cast would be interested in said reunion. In a People report dated Weds. Aug. 28, they shared a quote that TV dad Danny Tanner had said back in April, which suggests that the days of the cast in its entirety are probably over: "Not everybody would want to do it. Maybe two-thirds of the cast would want to," said Bob Saget.

"John [Stamos] is such a good guy, and I think he would want it to happen in some way if it could. There's some stuff going on, I don't get involved in it, where people were trying to put some energy into it … [But] I don't think it will happen in a way that it would be everybody," he added.

The latest reports have suggested that Candace Cameron Bure (D.J.), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie), Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibbler), Uncle Joey (Dave Coulier), and Uncle Jesse (John Stamos) would be among those interested in returning. Since Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen seem content far away from the spotlight, it seems reasonable to believe that they would be in the "not wanting to do it" category. Also, Aunt Becky (Lori Laughlin) hasn't really been mentioned in the reunion buzz, and since she keeps busy with other avenues, she may also be one of the ones opting out.

Just the idea of handsome John Stamos returning is probably enough for some of his admirers out there. Thankfully, Uncle Jesse is leading the cause, but will he bring his Rippers back with him? After all, they did reunite on 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon' last year. Other members of the cast have also been very visible in the spotlight this past year. Candace Cameron-Bure recently showed off her dancing skills on 'DWTS.' Coulier, Stamos and Saget all reunited for a Dannon yogurt commercial for the last Super Bowl.

On Watch What Happens Live in January, Stamos said, "We're sort of working on a twist on a sequel, but we don't know if it's going to happen yet or not."

And Cameron Bure also said in January that a TV reunion would be "really fun."

Where does Bob Saget stand on getting back together?

For him, he wouldn't want to mess up a great show.

"It's such a sweet thing, nobody should mess it up. I wouldn't want to see it Brady-ed, where they make fun of it," he said in April, adding that a reunion show was "the farthest thing from my mind that exists."

"Five years ago, I said, 'Hey, everybody looks pretty good. I kinda still look okay. We should hurry."

Hmmm....it just might be too early to tell what's "really" going on?

What do you think? Should 'Full House' return to television, or should they leave the masterpiece alone as part of TV history? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
