Former Full House star Candace Cameron Bure is reuniting with her onscreen beau Scott Weinger for an upcoming episode of U.S. sitcom The Neighbors. Just weeks after her TV father figures Bob Saget, John Stamos and Dave Coulier came together for a Super Bowl commercial, the actress is also reuniting with a co-worker from the popular 1990s show.
Weinger, who is also a writer on The Neighbors, recruited his pal Cameron Bure to play his significant other on the show. The two also played long-term teen lovebirds on Full House.
Their reunion will be featured on the season finale of the comedy, which airs in America on 28 February (14).
Everywhere you look, everywhere you go--there's a Full House reunion! OK, so maybe not everywhere you look or go, but there was a 25th anniversary get-together with the San Francisco family this weekend and nearly everyone was there!
Candace Cameron-Bure (D.J. Tanner), Bob Saget (Danny Tanner), John Stamos (Uncle Jesse Katsopolis), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner), Dave Coulier (Joey Gladstone), Lori Loughlin (Becky Katsopolis), Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibbler), and Scott Weinger (Steve Hale). The Olsen twins, Mary-Kate and Ashley, who took turns playing Michelle Tanner, were not in attendance.
Feel old yet? Well, here's something that will definitely do that: the reunion was in honor of the 25th anniversary of the series, and People, the party included cake and a dance party featuring the music of the oh-so-appropriate New Kids on the Block.
Several of the cast members tweeted from the day--including a video of said singalong as well as pictures of TV BFFs Gibbler and DJ.

With what some might say is a "classically handsome" look, Scott Weinger was on his way to becoming a TV heartthrob when he put his Hollywood career on semi-hold to attend Harvard University in the 1990s. But even attending Harvard did not keep him from working both in front of the cameras and in doing voices. He became the "youth correspondent" for ABC's "Good Morning, America" in 1994. But Weinger is best known for performing the voice of Aladdin in Disney's 1992 animated mega-hit film, and reprising the character in two direct-to-video sequels as well as the spin-off TV series.<p>Born in New York, but raised in Florida, Weinger got the acting bug at an early age, guest-starred on an episode of "Miami Vice" (shot in southern Florida) at age 11, and also appeared in numerous TV commercials. He convinced his family to move to Los Angeles in 1988, and he promptly made his feature film debut in a small role in "Police Academy 5" and had a more substantial role in the syndicated TV-movie "Hemingway". In an "odd but true" potential trivia answer, Weinger spent the late 80s and early 90s on three different TV series, in each one cast as a character named 'Steve'. He was cocky class president Steve Smith on ABC's "Life Goes On" (1989), Steve Taylor, son of Gregory Harrison, on "The Family Man" (CBS, 1990-1991) and for two seasons had the recurring role of Steve Hale, the beau of Candace Cameron's D.J. on "Full House" (ABC, 1991-1993). Weinger also did the voice of the title role in the 1994 remake of Disney's "The Shaggy Dog" (ABC).

"With his chiseled face, prominent eyebrows and coal black hair, Scott doesn't look too different from his animated alter ego. And if you close your eyes, the voice is definitely Aladdin's. . . ." --From "He's the lad in 'Aladdin'" by Jim Abbott, DAILY NEWS, January 3, 1993
"After I graduate from Harvard, I'm not sure what I'll do. Maybe I'll die of exhaustion! They'll say 'Scott Weinger,' give me my diploma, and I'll say thank you and just pass out." --Scott Weinger
"My general feeling is, if something really tempting came along while I'm here, I'll go for it. After all, Harvard's been here for 400 years and isn't going anywhere. If I graduate later, at 22 or 23, it's not a great loss. I won't be too old to continue acting." --Weinger to THE LOS ANGELES TIMES, November 9, 1994
