Comet's Excellent Adventure is the first episode of season eight of Full House. It originally aired on September 27, 1994.


The Rippers – Lanny, Gary, and Roger – are tired of Jesse's personal life getting in the way of how much time he spends with them, and they think that he has lost his passion for the music. As a result, they unanimously vote him out of the band. Jesse, who feels hurt, embarks on a mission to prove that he does not need them, and that he can succeed without them, and Danny and Becky are doing an episode of Wake Up, San Francisco at Aquatic Park.

When Michelle asks Jesse if she can walk Comet, even though she is not allowed to do so by herself, he absentmindedly gives her permission. While she is out doing so, Comet escapes from her, sending the family on a frantic search for him, who returns home sometime later. 

Meanwhile, D.J. breaks up with Nelson Burkhard, the teenage millionaire that she has been dating.


  • The episode title is a take on the 1989 comedy film Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure
  • In a rare occurrence, the title shot of the Golden Gate Bridge is used to open the episode
  • The only episode of the series that was actually shot in San Francisco
  • The fourth wall is broken when the family turns on the TV and "Full House" is playing while the logo comes out from the TV for the episode
  • Stephanie sarcastically saying to Michelle, "Yeah, in a big giant bun," when Michelle insists Comet was chasing a wiener, is a reference to the Oscar-Mayer Wienermobile (interestingly, Jodie Sweetin made her acting debut in an Oscar-Mayer commercial prior to Full House's debut)
