John Stamos temporarily fired the Olsen twins in the early stages of "Full House".

During an appearance on Josh Peck's Good Guys podcast on Monday, the 59-year-old actor said that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who famously shared the role of Michelle Tanner on the hit sitcom from 1987-1995, nearly got the boot from the show.

The then-11-month-old twins were having a rough day on set during a memorable season 1 scene in which Stamos' Jesse Katsopolis and Dave Coulier's Joey Gladstone were taking care of the baby.

Stamos recalls, "[Dave] and I were changing the baby. We're carrying the baby downstairs, I think I was holding on to their armpits and Dave was holding her little feet. We take her into the kitchen and hosed her down, we put a fan on her, wrapped her up in paper towels. She was screaming."

"Both of them, they wanted to be anywhere else but there, and so did I. They were 11 months old, and God bless them. And they kept switching."

When the situation got worse, Stamos recalled thinking the Olsen twins, now 36, were not ready for prime time.

"I said, 'This is not going to work, guys,' and I screamed it 10 times. I said, 'Get rid of them, I can't work like this.'"

After the producers briefly hired "two red-headed kids" who were seemingly not as cute as Mary-Kate and Ashley, Stamos says the Olsen sisters were welcomed back to the show.

"I said, 'Bring the Olsens back, these kids are terrible! It was a day or something, we tried the other kids, it didn't work."
