John Stamos, Bob Saget, and Candace Cameron Bure, co-stars of the 1990s television hit "Full House," reunited Wednesday night at the Starlight Awards, which is sponsored by an organization that works to improve the lives and health of children around the world.
The three former castmates met up at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles and reminisced about their experiences on the long-running ABC sitcom.

"It is a part of culture and it's not going away," Saget told Us Weekly.
"Little kids are watching it now like it just started, so it's really quite funny. The biggest compliment I get, me especially because I'm the oldest, is, 'You look the same!' I'm like, 'No I don't, dude, I'm all older and puffy,' but they're like, 'No, no.'"
Saget, 57, starred as widowed father Danny Tanner, who asks his best friend Joey Gladstone (Dave Coulier) and brother-in-law Jesse Katsopolis (Stamos) to help raise his three daughters, D.J. (Bure), Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), and Michelle, played by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. It ran from 1987-95.
"There was actually a lot of love, that's why the show's a hit," Saget told Us Weekly. "It was a nicely written kid show for 12-year-old kids, mostly girl friendly. Any cast that does well now is because there's stuff going on that's not in the lines where you can see there's a spark going on with them, and that's with the love of that show. This was a kid show and a family show so we all genuinely have affection, a love for each other."
Saget and Stamos, who is 50, said they are still being referred to by their character names.
"I've done so much work since then, but it just doesn't ever go away. I never tried to run from it, but I've really embraced it the last 10 years," Stamos told Us Weekly. "I'm proud of it and then main thing is that I really feel that 'Full House' helped a lot with Starlight and we helped a lot of kids through 'Full House' through the Uncle Jesse thing to make a lot of kids happy. I could be called worse, right?"
The Starlight charity helps families with hospitalized children. According to the organization's web site
, it was founded in 1982 by filmmaker Peter Samuelson and his cousin, actress Emma Samms. They created Starlight after sponsoring a trip from London to Los Angeles for a terminally ill boy who wanted to visit Disneyland. Since then, it has grown to become a leading charitable organization.
Stamos himself went above and beyond recently, promising a 19-year-old bacterial meningitis survivor a date to Disneyland
