Joseph Alvin Gladstone (born September 21, 1958, portrayed by Dave Coulier) ==Summary== Joey is one of the show's four protagonists. Joey is mainly known for his love of cartoons and other childlike things. He is also a stand-up comedian. He has a pilot's license and can fly a two-seater, out of which Jesse skydives the day of his wedding. Once, while appearing as a guest on Wake Up, San Francisco, he answers a question about cartoons with professorial mastery. It is also later revealed that he has a teaching license; he substitutes for Michelle's class a few times but it doesn't go well when he punishes Michelle for talking during class. He can give quite good advice at times. Though he does not like Kimmy, he holds his tongue when she is around, unlike Danny, Stephanie and Jesse. In the season two episode "Pal Joey", it is said that he and Danny have been friends since they met one recess in elementary school.
