Saget is perhaps best known for his portrayal of Danny Tanner in the ABC sitcom "Full House" and its Netflix sequel "Fuller House." Tributes to the actor quickly poured in shortly after news of his death broke, including many former castmates on social media and even flowers from fans in San Francisco outside of the home used in the popular show.

John Stamos, who played Uncle Jesse on the show, shared a heartbreaking reaction on Twitter: "I am broken. I am gutted. I am in complete and utter shock. I will never ever have another friend like him. I love you so much Bobby."

"Full House" also brought fame to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen when it debuted in 1987. The twins issued a joint statement, which called Saget "the most loving, compassionate and generous man."

"We are deeply saddened that he is no longer with us but know that he will continue to be by our side to guide us as gracefully as he always has," the Olsens said.

Dave Coulier, who played Danny's best friend, said he'll "never let go."

Bob Saget: That’s What I’m Talkin’ About (2013): 

If you’re looking for a special to help you remember the warm, dorky dad from "Full House," this ain’t it — but as Saget reverts to his "foul-mouthed explainer and raconteur" persona for this Seattle stage show, it’ll be easy to fall in love with the R-rated version, too.

Bob Saget: Zero to Sixty (2017): 

Just because Saget’s off-sitcom persona was a teeny bit raunchier than viewers might expect doesn’t mean he’s not still "the last TV father viewers can trust," a title he embraces in this stand-up special he saw as "a warm embrace in this troubled times." It’s still not for kids, though.

Comedy Warriors (2013): 

The foul-mouthed, big-hearted Saget is one of five comedians (alongside Lewis Black and Zach Galifianakis, among others) who steps up to coach "five wounded war veterans for their first stand-up comedy set." This documentary captures the attempt to promote "healing through humor."
