Saget isn't what you would expect from those shows

Growing up I knew actor Bob Saget from two things, Full House and America's Funniest Home Videos. On both of those shows he played a straight arrow and seemed like the cleanest guy you would ever meet. Later in my life I ran across some of his stand up and realized he was one of the raunchiest comedians you will find, which was very different from what I expected.

Saget has published a new book called Dirty Daddy and parts of the book talked about his time on Full House. Saget revealed that the pilot for the show was shot with another actor and the executive producers replaced him with Saget and Saget says that he still feels bad according to E Online.

He also says that he would have outbursts on set going back to his foul-mouthed ways when cameras weren't rolling. So much so that he was reprimanded by producers for how he acted on set.

"I still knew, even back then, and I know it more today that portraying a good father for hundreds of millions of people is valuable."

Saget also said that while on set he once changed the diapers of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

"I felt protective of Mary-Kate and Ashley—and equally so with Candace [Cameron Bure] and Jodie [Sweetin]. Same as I do with every child actor I've ever worked with. I was proud to be their 'dad'. It upsets me when people jump all over them and talk trash. All the kids on that show are not kids anymore, but they're all lovely people. Family to me. And I don't talk badly about family…I did—and do—love everybody on that show."
