Confused "Alf" Tanners and "Full House" Tanners

Oddly enough, BOTH shows "Alf" and "Full House" have the surname Tanners. But what if William Tanner was the older brother of Daniel Tanner from "Full House"?

I thought they were related as well, back when I was a kid. It would have been an interesting cross-over, if the networks had allowed it.

That would definitely be funny. And both Tanners live in California so it wouldn't be too much of a stretch for them to meet at some point. ALF and Full House crossover- I wouldn't be surprised if someone's written this on fanfiction.net...

I wouldn't be surprised either I might have to look it up over there.

Um, wow- read the whole thing posted so far and I can't say I'm really digging this story. I don't generally care for the fanfiction stories set in the future for TV series (i.e. that can work, depending on the circumstances, but for this particular one- I'd rather have just seen the scene set in the same place the TV show left us. For the purposes of ALF's timeline, this really should probably have been set in the late '80s or perhaps 1990.) I also don't really like the addition of new characters and particularly all this business with Stephanie's career field and how things went down with DJ and Steve. Somehow, I get the impression the author was wanting to get the Full House gang pretty far away from their wholesome images on the show...
And Kimmy and Joey getting married? Yeah- really don't see that happening. I kinda wonder if the whole Michelle being bi-polar thing was a reference to her character being played by twins- Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
And wow- ALF's Tanner family didn't fare much better. They also seem quite removed from the way I saw them on the TV show...
Not to mention there is a ton of language and situations that would never be seen on either show...
I'm not a fan of such stories, but oh well. It's still interesting to see a crossover.
