Michelle Tanner was born on November 7, 1986 to Pam and Danny. She is the youngest daughter in the Tanner family. Michelle has blond hair like her sisters. She is the younger sister of D.J. and Stephanie. She was nine months old when Pam died instantly from her injuries in a car accident after getting hit by a drunk driver. Since Michelle does not remember her mother, her family tells her what Pam was like in the final episode. She turns one year old in the first season and by the end of the show Michelle is eight. Michelle has appeared in every episode of every season. As she got older, Michelle has a wild streak and is a smart-aleck. She is shown having many friends, and spending much time with them. She always tries to follow in D.J. and Stephanie's footsteps. Michelle is the character with the most catch phrases. She mentions that her favorite color is green in Tough Love.
Michelle often feels left out when D.J. and Stephanie get to hang out together. Michelle wants to be just like her sisters. Michelle's hobbies include honey bees, ballet, soccer, and horseback riding. She is very close to Jesse, who nicknamed her munchkin. She is ambidextrous. Becky sometimes helps her and her sisters with girl and boy problems, among other things. She has two little cousins: Nicky & Alex Katsopolis.
Michelle attends Meadowcrest Preschool. After Michelle's first day of pre-school, when she lets the class bird, Dave, fly away by accident, she wants to quit pre-school, and Jesse agrees to let her drop out, but Danny won't let her. After graduating from pre-school, Michelle goes to Frasier Street Elementary School until the end of the series. Like D.J. and Stephanie, Michelle is a good student.
Michelle is best friends with Teddy and later on she gets another best friend named Denise Frazer. Her other friends are Derek and Lisa. Aaron has been Michelle's bully ever since pre-school, and they dislike each other sometimes but are friends.
During the run of the series, Michelle has had many catch phrases which she is known for saying:
- "Aw, nuts!"
- "You got it, dude"
- "Oh, puh-lease!"
- "Don't worry, be happy"
- "You're in big trouble, mister!"
- "Don't cry, be a big boy!"
- "Capiche" (Kapeesh; Italian for "understand?")
- "Thank you very much"
- "You got a bad attitude"
- "This is nuts!"
- "Just doing my job"
- "It will be my pleasure"
- "Go to your room!"
- "No way, Jose"
- Though she has the most parent-to-kid relationship with Jesse, she has a pretty strong bond with all of the adults.
- She is the youngest of the Tanner girls.
- She is the one of the characters with the most catchphrases.
- She played with a dish rag when she was a toddler.
- She is the only Tanner girl to not have a serious boyfriend (due to her 8-9 year old age at the end of the series).
