'Dancing With the Stars' cast and pros answer: 'Full House' or 'The Wonder Years'? -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Posted on

DWTS Backstage Clip

With TV’s D.J. Tanner and Winnie Cooper (Candace Cameron Bure and Danica McKellar) vying head-to-glittery-head for mirrorball trophy, more than a few of season 18’s Dancing With the Stars votes could depend on whether viewers preferred Full House or The Wonder Years. After Monday’s premiere, the DWTS cast — along with Our Pros! — weighed in on some of their favorite memories from those series. Find out whose dog’s name is “D.J. Tanner” (!?!) in the video below….

It makes so much sense that the ultra-wholesome Meryl Davis and Charlie White were Full House fans. Sleep, food, training, and Tanners — what more do you need to win gold?

I like how Drew Carey wisely abstained from the conversation. “Tom Bergeron said ‘every grown man had a crush on Winnie Cooper’ — I was like ‘Not me, man. I’m not a pedophile!” You heard it here first. Drew Carey: not a pedophile.

What about you? Full House or The Wonder Years?
