    Kimmy Suffered From A Learning Disability

    From Redditor u/TedTheodoreMcfly: 

    In Full House, one of Kimmy's character traits was her bad grades/ineptness with schoolwork. It would be easy to assume that this is simple stupidity, but there have been episodes where she speaks fluent Spanish, shows surprisingly good driving skills, and plays multiple musical instruments. Furthermore, in Fuller House she has a successful party planning service, so she must have at least some intelligence. Given that Full House takes place from 1987-1995 it would be very easy for a learning disability to be dismissed as simple laziness/stupidity. From what we hear of Kimmy's parents, they seem to be neglectful bordering on abusive, so they probably wouldn't go out of their way to help her get tested for disabilities/have necessary adjustments made to her curriculum.

    From Redditor u/AbsolutLove: 

    Danny Tanner is known for cleaning and being a neat freak. It is only fitting their dog is named after a popular cleaning product.

    Danny And Cindy Broke Up Because Of Rusty

    From Redditor u/3_point_turn:

    What I think happened is, maybe Cindy could see that Rusty wasn’t ready for a new man in their life. Even though they both liked the Tanner’s, maybe she realized it was too soon, and gave up that relationship for her son as he was still getting over his parents’ divorce.

    Danny Became A Strict Parent After D.J. Graduated

    From Redditor u/80sBernardBrother: 

    If somehow the original show could've lasted, Steph was looking to have some wild teens based on the final season or two, so I could see Danny being a way more strict freaked out dad with her circa 1998 than he ever was with D.J..

    Once Michelle was the only one left he'd get the empty nester fears AND probably deny that his last little girl was growing up, so I could envision him really cracking down on her. Imagine her as a Hot Topic emo teen circa 2002!
