Dancing with the Stars of TGIF; Or an Excuse for Reginald VelJohnson in a Uniform

Well, we assume that Dancing with the Stars was unable to strike a deal with Bartman to join their new cast, so they went ahead and secured the next best thing, Urkel!

That’s right!  Jaleel “Steve/Stefon Urkel” White will be the centerpiece of Dancing with the Stars upcoming 14th(!) season (which begs the obvious question, how long until they do Dancing with the All-Stars?).  And, we bet you thought we’d take this easy opportunity to post the Urkel Dance, right?  RIGHT?  WRONG.  Nope, we’re taking this easy opportunity to post what happened after the Urkel Dance, Drunk Urkel! (but you should totally go watch the Urkel Dance when you’re done here)

But, no half measures here, we’re also taking this easy opportunity to revisit our dormant, once regular feature, Reginald VelJohnson in Uniform Moment of the Week!  And this is what happened after Drunk Urkel after the Urkel Dance!

What TGIF star do you think they’ll snag for Season 15???  Cousin Cody?  We know that he can kick.

Drums, Conga & Guitar, Uncle Jesse? Have Mercy!

Just to tie a bow on yesterday’s John Stamos-Beach Boys-DWTS post, here’s last night’s surf rock medley, with Stamos performing not one, not two, but three instruments, and looking, in the words of my mother, adorable: [via Gawker.TV]

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Could this be a storyline for that long-awaited Full House reunion?  Uncle Jesse goes on tour with his teen heartthrob twin sons Nicky and Alex?  But the show is cut short when niece Stephanie goes into labor?  How rude!  Younger sister Michelle shows up at the hospital just in time, barreling into the waiting room exclaiming “I’m coming, I’m coming, I’m coming.  I’m here!”?  You got it, dude!

Also Gawker.TV did what I couldn’t do and found the classic clip of the Tanner clan joining The Beach Boys on stage for “Barbara Ann.”  I hang my blog in shame.

And so ends the Full House portion of our week.  Or does it?

Tuesday Nostalgia Corner: Stamos & The The Beach Boys Together Forever

I was watching Dancing with the Stars last night (which I had a perfectly good reason for doing, one that I won’t explain here), and learned that John Stamos would be performing on tonight’s episode with the Beach Boys!  Stamos and the Boys together again, just like the late 80s!  Stamos, as you might recall, for some reason, has often played with The Beach Boys over the years, and apparently frequently still tours with the group.  You might also remember a little more clearly the song “Forever,” which was recorded with Stamos on vocals, but featured on Full House as the smash hit video from Uncle Jesse’s rock band, Jesse and the Rippers.  I mean, how could you ever forget this:

Even though The Beach Boys weren’t properly credited on the sitcom as the real band behind “Forever,” they did make several appearances on the show, even bringing the whole Tanner clan on stage in the episode “Beach Boy Bingo,” and later engaging in a group hug in the family’s living room (only mere feet from where Uncle Joey slept in season 1).

We should also not forget that Stamos played the congas on that perennial summer jam “Kokomo.”  I’m not sure that anyone, and I mean anyone, has ever rocked a pink tank top like Stamos in this video (nostalgia side story: a friend whose name I’ve long since forgotten and I performed this song for our summer day camp talent show.  I must have been about 5 years old at the time, but I’m pretty sure we brought the house (elementary school gym) down).

And that is how I learned the geography of the Caribbean.
