37 WTF Moments From The “Full House” Christmas Episode

Mickey Rooney in a Santa suit. No.

1. The show opens, and Michelle reveals that she bought Danny this hideous “party tie” that doubles as a cup holder. Excuse me, but why does this product even exist?

Warner Bros. Television

2. D.J. commends Michelle for no longer being poor as hell, since she gave cereal as Christmas presents last year.

Warner Bros. Television

3. She freaking made earrings out of Frosted Flakes for Stephanie. I felt so sorry for her.

Warner Bros. Television

4. And even worse, she made D.J. a Rice Krispies retainer container.

Warner Bros. Television

5. BUT ALL TRUE FULL HOUSE FANS KNOW THAT D.J. NEVER HAD BRACES, SO WHY WOULD SHE NEED A RETAINER CONTAINER?

Warner Bros. Television

6. In the next scene, Becky walks into the kitchen and says she smells “roast turkey, hot apple cider, and pumpkin pie”, but it’s just Danny’s new air freshener, “Can O’ Christmas”. OK???

Warner Bros. Television

“Now with more nog than ever.”

7. Jesse complains cause he was “mauled by 20 fat, jolly guys” at the dry-cleaners, and Becky responds “well, it’s been a while.”

Warner Bros. Television

How was this a kid’s show?

8. Jesse then reveals that he spent seven dollars on mistletoe, which turned out to be parsley*.

Warner Bros. Television

*Possibly marijauna.

Becky announces that she got Joey a gag gift, AKA THE SAME TIE THAT MICHELLE GOT DANNY.

Warner Bros. Television

9. Danny reacts accordingly, unaware that Michelle actually got the same gift for him.

Warner Bros. Television

And the award for ‘Worst Father of the Year’ goes to Danny Tanner.

10. Upon hearing this trash talk, Michelle attempts to throw her present in the fire, almost burning down the house.

Warner Bros. Television

11. Rather than giving Danny the tie, Uncle Jesse proposes that Michelle gives her father a Fruit Loop sombrero.

Warner Bros. Television

WHY IS THIS FAMILY SO OBSESSED WITH CEREAL?

12. BUT THERE’S A DILEMMA. MICHELLE ALREADY GAVE DANNY A FRUIT LOOP SOMBRERO TWO YEARS AGO.

Warner Bros. Television

(WHERE IS THIS SO-CALLED SOMBRERO? WHY HAVE WE NEVER SEEN DANNY WEARING IT?)

13. Michelle convinces Uncle Jesse to take her back to the joke store to return the gift. ON CHRISTMAS EVE.

Warner Bros. Television

Keep in mind that this episode aired in 1995. No store was open on Christmas Eve in 1995. Get your shit together, ABC.

Meanwhile, Steph and D.J. try to help Joey into a Santa suit.

Warner Bros. Television

14. Several grunting noises later, the three of them end up on the bed together.

Warner Bros. Television

Nicky and Alex watch in horror because they think Santa (AKA Joey) is hurting their precious cousins.

Warner Bros. Television

15. The next scene takes place in a joke store, WHICH IS OWNED BY MICKEY ROONEY.

Warner Bros. Television

16. Mickey Rooney runs to the door and locks it before Uncle Jesse and Michelle can enter, because he’s a miserable old bastard.

Warner Bros. Television

Come on, man, what’s your problem?

17. Uncle Jesse tricks Mickey Rooney into thinking that they can’t hear him, so Mickey Rooney opens the door and almost gets tackled to the ground.

Warner Bros. Television

18. Mickey Rooney says that he begrudgingly remembers Michelle because she paid for the five dollar gag gift in all nickels. NICKELS.

Warner Bros. Television

Michelle wants to exchange the gift, but she doesn’t have a receipt, so Mickey Rooney won’t let her.

Warner Bros. Television

Uncle Jesse requests that they exchange the five dollar tie for some other crappy five dollar present.

Warner Bros. Television

All this trouble for another shitty gift.

19. Mickey Rooney wasn’t having any of that shit, so he decided to LOCK THEM IN THE STORE.

Warner Bros. Television

20. To make matters worse, he also touched the secret alarm, which called the police.

Warner Bros. Television

21. WHICH MEANS UNCLE JESSE AND MICHELLE, A MERE SIX-YEAR-OLD GIRL, ARE GOING TO SPEND CHRISTMAS EVE IN JAIL.

Warner Bros. Television

22. But Uncle Jesse thinks about the situation and says he wants the cops to come cause he was basically KIDNAPPED by Mickey Rooney.

Warner Bros. Television

Always use the comedy rule of three when you’re being kidnapped by Mickey Rooney. It never fails.

23. Then Uncle Jesse politely asks Mickey Rooney for a cup of water, as if the whole kidnapping thing never occurred. Like, what?

Warner Bros. Television

And he totally forgot that he’s in a joke store, so of course it was a trick drinking glass.

24. And then Mickey Rooney and Michelle have a good laugh about the trick drinking glass, as if they’re best buds, DESPITE HIM CALLING THE COPS ON HER.

Warner Bros. Television

(Or maybe Mickey Rooney is having a heart attack. Not sure.)

Michelle then offers Uncle Jesse a towel.

Warner Bros. Television

25. BUT OBVIOUSLY IT’S A FREAKING JOKE TOWEL WITH GREASE ON IT.

Warner Bros. Television

26. Literally two seconds later Michelle tricks Uncle Jesse AGAIN, saying a dollar fell out of his pocket.

Warner Bros. Television

Damnit, Jesse, obviously a dollar did not fall out of your bulgingly tight pants.

27. Then Mickey Rooney says he talked to the police on the phone and told them not to come. But how could he secretly talk to the police if he was so close to Jesse and Michelle this whole time?

Warner Bros. Television

28. Mickey Rooney tells them to leave, but Michelle thinks he’s lonely, SO SHE INVITES HIM TO SPEND CHRISTMAS AT THE TANNER HOUSEHOLD, EVEN THOUGH HE IMPRISONED THEM.

Warner Bros. Television

29. And then Mickey Rooney admits that he doesn’t talk to his family anymore, so he’s used to spending the holidays alone. Then the audience collectively awes in the background because they feel bad.

Warner Bros. Television

HE JUST KIDNAPPED MICHELLE TANNER, AMERICA’S SWEETHEART, AND NOW YOU FEEL BAD FOR HIM?

Mickey Rooney finally agrees to spend Christmas Eve with the Tanners, and Uncle Jesse finds his Christmas spirit again.

Warner Bros. Television

30. But of course Uncle Jesse falls for yet another gag before they leave. This time it’s the old handshake buzzer joke.

Warner Bros. Television

You know what, Michelle, you deserve to spend Christmas Eve in jail.

31. Meanwhile, Joey dresses as the Easter Bunny, which he thinks will make Nicky and Alex less scared of Santa. This man is an idiot.

Warner Bros. Television

32. Later that night, everyone returns home, and Mickey Rooney is dressed as Santa. Why the hell would he have a Santa suit if he literally was the world’s biggest Scrooge 15 minutes ago?

Warner Bros. Television

33. But of course this magically cures Nicky and Alex of their fear of Santa.

Warner Bros. Television

If anything, a dressed-up Mickey Rooney should induce fear, not cure it.

34. Michelle gives Danny the new Christmas present, which turns out to be a freaking candy cane toothbrush.

Warner Bros. Television

Are you kidding me, Michelle?

35. Did I mention that the toothbrush also plays Christmas music???

Warner Bros. Television

Yo, Uncle Jesse, you could have prevented this.

36. “Deck The Halls” plays in the background as Mickey Rooney calls his six-year-old granddaughter, who apparently has her own phone line because she answers the phone herself on the first ring and immediately wishes this creepy stranger a Merry Christmas.

Warner Bros. Television

Except Mickey Rooney states that he hasn’t spoken to his granddaughter in a few years, so she probably wouldn’t remember him in the first place.

37. But all is right in the world now, so everyone starts singing and hugging each other, even though there is a complete stranger dressed as Santa in their house.

Warner Bros. Television

The end.
