Although Bob Saget was idolized by many comedians for his profane and often cutting act, he was best known for his role in the sitcom, Full House, where he starred alongside the actors John Stamos and fellow comic Dave Coulier.
He won plaudits for his portrayal of Danny Tanner, a widowed father of three daughters, playing the role from 1987 to 1995.
Bob Saget reprised the role in 2016 when Netflix revived the program for a further five seasons.
In more recent years he found fame among younger generations as the narrator of the hit show How I Met Your Mother and for his guest stints as a highly fictionalized version of himself in the TV series, Entourage.
John Stamos, who worked with Bob Saget on Full House and Fuller House tweeted: “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.”
Candace Cameron Bure remembered Bob Saget, who played her father on Full House, writing on Twitter: “I don’t know what to say . I have no words. Bob was one of the best humans beings I’ve ever known in my life. I loved him so much.”
John Stamos has been charged with driving under the influence of drugs, stemming for his June arrest in Beverly Hills.
The actor, best known for Full House and ER, is due to appear in court for a hearing on October 16.
John Stamos’ arrest in Los Angeles followed reports of him “allegedly behaving strangely and driving erratically”.
The 52-year-old actor, who is currently working on two TV shows, could face a maximum six-month jail sentence if convicted of the misdemeanor offence.
Any jail time could disrupt work on both his current TV series.

New Fox series Grandfathered, which premiered last month, casts John Stamos in the central role of a middle-aged man who discovers he has a son and infant granddaughter he never knew about.
John Stamos also has a recurring role in Fuller House, the Netflix reboot of sitcom Full House, which is shooting in Hollywood and set to debut on the streaming service in 2016.
Neither Fox nor Netflix made any comment on how the shows might be affected.
A hearing at LA’s Superior Court on October 16, could see a resolution to the case or the setting of a pre-trial hearing, which could mean any jail time for John Stamos is unlikely before the new year.
Beverly Hills police declined to identify the drug John Stamos had allegedly taken before his arrest, nor is it identified in the charging document.
John Stamos, who was taken to hospital at the time of the incident on June 12, checked into rehab following his arrest.
Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen won’t return for Netflix’s upcoming Full House revival – Fuller House.
The twin actresses, who collectively played Michelle Tanner on the original series, will not be returning for the Netflix reboot, executive producer Robert L. Boyett announced on May 22.
Robert L. Boyett said in a statement: “Although Ashley and Mary-Kate will not be a part of <<Fuller House>>, I know how much <<Full House>> has meant to them and they are still very much considered family. It has been exciting to see how they have built their professional careers, and I support their choice to focus on their fashion brands and various business endeavors. I appreciate their support and good wishes towards <<Fuller House>>.”
Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen’s participation on the new series has been a point of controversy since the project was announced. Mary-Kate Olsen had been quoted as saying that she and her sister hadn’t heard from John Stamos – who will guest on and produce the series – about the project.
However, there will be plenty of returning faces on the new show. In addition to John Stamos, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber will be on Fuller House, while Dave Coulier will appear on at least one episode.
Fuller House series, which has received a 13-episode order, will see Candace Cameron Bure and Jodie Sweetin reprising their roles as D.J. and Stephanie Tanner, 20 years after the end of the original series in 1995.
In the new version, D.J. is now a veterinarian, pregnant and recently widowed, still living in San Francisco. Stephanie Tanner, an aspiring musician, and Kimmy Gibler (Barber), now a single mother herself, along with Kimmy’s teenage daughter Ramona, all move in to help take care of D.J.’s two boys – the rebellious 12-year-old J.D. and neurotic 7-year-old Max – and her soon-to-arrive baby.
