When D.J. hears that her favorite singer Stacy Q will be at a local mall to give out autographs, and knowing that it would mean meeting Stacy Q in person, D.J. wants an autograph, and she'll do absolutely anything, no matter what it takes, to make it happen. Problem is, the signings are scheduled to take place during school hours, so D.J. decides to secretly skip a day of school to get the autograph. D.J. gets Jesse to mention how he once secretly and successfully skipped a day from school, and D.J. pulls that same trick on Jesse and Joey. D.J. and Kimmy head to the mall and get in line to get an autograph - but they never expected Joey and Michelle to show up, because they didn't know that Joey had made plans to get the autograph for D.J. and surprise her with it after school.
After his wife is killed in a car accident, news anchorman Danny Tanner recruits his brother-in-law Jesse Katsopolis (a rock musician) and best friend Joey Gladstone (who works as a stand-up comedian) to help raise his three young daughters: D.J., Stephanie, and Michelle, in his San Francisco home. Over time, the three men as well as the children bond and become closer to one another.
Danny is reassigned from his duties as sports anchor by his television station to become co-host of a local morning television show, Wake Up, San Francisco, and is teamed up with Nebraska native Rebecca Donaldson.
