Last year, Saget came to Cameron Bure's defense when the Hallmark actress revealed on Saget's podcast Here For You that she often gets criticized for appearing to be happy all the time.

"I'm going to ask you to talk about me for a second," Cameron Bure told Saget in April, before asking, "For those people that think that because I am a happy, positive person, that I must be a fake person, would you say that that's true or false?"

Saget assured his former on-screen daughter, "You're the opposite of fake. And I'm sorry — you're perky sometimes. What's wrong with being perky?"

"Thank you," the mom-of-three told Saget. "I only ask that because sometimes you read comments, and most of them, they roll off my back. But when people are annoyed at me that I'm such a happy person … I was like, let someone speak into this that's known me since I was 9 years old."

In response, Saget added, "You're a positive person. So if you're perky, it's because you're excited, and/or you've had a lot of caffeine. That's what people should know — there's nothing fake about you."

Another one of Saget's Full House costars and longtime friend, John Stamos, paid tribute to the comedian on Sunday.

"I am broken. I am gutted. I am in complete and utter shock. I will never ever have another friend like him. I love you so much Bobby," Stamos tweeted.
