Over its eight seasons on the air, Full House introduced us to some iconic characters — from an overprotective single dad to a rock star uncle and everything in between. However, one of its most memorable characters, of course, was Tanner household's ultimate little sister: Michelle Tanner. While I love each and every character on Full House individually, it is pretty obvious that Michelle stole the show. Aside from the fact that she was played by tween idols, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Michelle clearly helped make the show the success it is today. From her super cool style to her funny catch phrases, no one could compare to the oh-so adorable youngest Tanner girl.
As the show centered itself on heartfelt advice and learning from your mistakes, Michelle's character was no exception. There were plenty of times on the show when Danny had to sit her down for a little talking to. Sure, her younger child syndrome and sarcasm may have gotten her in trouble from time to time, but there were also moments when Michelle was the one doing the teaching. Because, let's be honest, Michelle had some of the most important life mottos of all.
1. Cookies Are An Important Food Group
Michelle was the queen of junk food and we could all relate to her cravings. She taught us all the importance of a good cookie, or even a nice bowl of ice cream.
2. When In Doubt, Say "Yes"
Sometimes you just gotta stick up two thumbs and say, "You got it, dude!" Michelle's signature catch phrase taught us all to add a little optimism in our daily lives.
3. Play To Your Strengths
If your best quality is your cuteness factor, play it up until you get what you want.
4. Never Underestimate The Power of Puppy Dog Eyes
As the youngest Tanner child, Michelle knows that no one can resist her batting her adorable eyes — especially Uncle Jesse.
5. Beauty Takes Time
Even the adorable Michelle understands the importance of a big hair bow — because hairstyles can really make or break an outfit.
6. Don't Let Them See You Sweat
Sometimes you just gotta put on a brave face and take on the world full force.
7. Tell People When They're Wrong
Everyone needs a little tough love now and then. When her friends are acting up, Michelle isn't afraid to tell them like it is.
8. Sass Is Key
Only thing better than Michelle's catch phrases are her sarcastic one liners. Paired with an eye roll, this girl is sass to the max.
9. Own It
Michelle taught us how to be secure with ourselves. You're awesome! Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
