Full House was so beloved that it ended up landing its own spinoff in 2016 called Fuller House on Netflix. Once again, Bob showed up to reprise his role as Danny in all five seasons of the reboot. Bob’s involvement in Full House and Fuller House is a huge reason why he passed away with a net worth of $50 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. That wholesome family entertainment isn’t the only reason he was so wealthy though.

From 1989 to 1997, Bob made a name for himself as the hilarious host of America’s Funniest Home Videos. For 191 episodes of the show, he added jokes and commentary for live audiences to appreciate. Another huge sitcom Bob was part of was How I Met Your Mother. He narrated 208 episodes of the show! Since he wasn’t visually seen in any episodes of How I Met Your Mother, this was one of his lesser-known roles.

Getting started in the entertainment industry was important to Bob who aggressively toured the United States as a stand-up comedian before achieving full throttle success as a TV actor. Acting and narration aren’t the only types of projects he was part of before he passed away though. He also tried his hand writing and was the published author of a memoir called Dirty Daddy. The book was released in 2014 detailing stories of his experiences in Hollywood and his personal life.
