Talk about a trip down memory lane! John Stamos got back to his Full House roots on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Friday, July 19, reuniting with his former Full House fictional band, Jesse And The Rippers, to perform a medley of hit songs.
Fallon introduced the group as “a great band out of San Francisco” before the original members launched into Beach Boys’ “Forever,” Elvis Presley’s “Little Sister,” Chan Romero’s “Hippy Hippy Shake” and ended with their rendition of the Full House theme song.
Forty-nine-year old Stamos, who played Jesse Katsopolis on the popular ’90s sitcom, donned his character’s signature mullet and busted out a black leather vest for the special performance.
The band’s first reunion in nearly 20 years wasn’t the only exciting Full House appearance on the late night show, as fellow cast member Bob Saget was seen dancing in the audience during the group’s second song.
At the end of the group’s final song, Jesse’s wife, Rebecca Donaldson — played by Lori Loughlin — came out to congratulate him, giving Stamos a giant kiss on the lips. (In a recent interview, Stamos admitted that Loughlin, 48, currently married to fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, was “the one that got away,” revealing they never quite got together in real life because “timing was always off”).
Nevertheless, the pair seemed happy to reunite during the nostalgia-filled segment. “We were great friends…and we have chemistry,” the actress said recently of her former costar, who she refers to as her “family.”
