In the days leading up to the 'Full House' reboot - 'Fuller House' - John Stamos has been looking back at old home videos. The actor, who reprises his role as Uncle Jesse, posted a video to Instagram of the Olsen twins on Sunday morning. Taken on a trip to Hawaii in August 1989, the clip shows 3-year-olds Mary-Kate and Ashley rocking matching pink bathing suits and patterned pants giving Stamos hugs and kisses.
The upcoming series is centered around the widowed veterinarian D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron-Bure) who enlists her younger sister and aspiring musician Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and her lifelong best friend Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber), along with Kimmy's teenage daughter Ramona (Soni Nicole Bringas), to help take care of her three sons - the defiant 12-year-old Jackson, high-strung 7-year-old Max and newborn Tommy Jr.
Most of the original 'Full House' cast members will be returning for the spinoff Netflix original series. Bob Saget (as Danny Tanner), John Stamos (as Jesse Katsopolis), Dave Coulier (as Joey Gladstone), Lori Loughlin (as Becky Katsopolis) and Scott Weinger (as Steve Hale) will appear as guest stars throughout the series.
The Olsen twins, who played Michelle Tanner, are the only 'Full House' cast members who are not returning to the show.
Executive producer Bob Boyett told People, "Ashley said, 'I have not been in front of a camera since I was 17 and I don't feel comfortable acting.' Mary-Kate said, 'it would have to be me because Ash doesn't want to do it. But the timing is so bad for us.'"
The now 29-year-old twins are focusing on their fashion brands and other business ventures at this time.
Netflix announced the release of the 'Full House' spinoff for Feb. 26.
