2. 1992 - Hangin' with Mr. Cooper

Stamos appeared in the "Hangin with Michelle" episode as... Uncle Jesse, transcending the standard, earthbound cameo for the lofty, gossamer crossover - a true '90s sitcom dream team.

4. 2003 - Clone High

Stamos phones it in on a 2003 episode of MTV's Clone High, calling Principal Scudworth to remind him -- as he does every year -- that back in high school Stamos was prom king and Scudworth wasn't. Typical John Stamos.

5. 2003 - Friends

In the one where Monica and Chandler are trying to get pregnant, Johnny S. shows up as Zack, a dreamy potential sperm donor. Again, typical Stamos.

6. 2006 - ER

In 2006, Dr. Tony Gates showed up in the ER to diagnose everyone with a case of Stamos Fever. Unfortunately, the only cure? More Stamos.

7. 2010 - Dancing With the Stars

Oh yeah. No big deal. Stamos was on Dancing With the Stars in 2010. So what, right? Everyone goes on Dancing With the Stars. Ok, but does everybody play guitar for the freakin' Beach Boys?! You heard right - too handsome and charismatic to merely dance, Mr. Stamos would prefer to rock your face off - albeit in a calm, Beach Boys sort of way.

8. 2011 - Glee

Stamos played the role of dentist Carl Howell. In an interview published in USA Today, Stamos said that in other shows he was asked to be "the cool guy or the charming guy. This guy [Dr. Howell] wants to be that guy, but he misses the mark."

9. 2011 - Two and a Half Men

In the weirdest of all his cameos, John Stamos shows up to consider buying Charlie Sheen's old house, but leaves when he remembers that he and Charlie awkwardly banged on the couch once.

10. 2013 - Oikos Yogurt Commercial

Yes, we are aware that being in a yogurt commercial isn't technically a cameo... but you have to appreciate that someone took the very concept of "sexy John Stamos showing up in unexpected places" and turned it into a campaign.
