“WandaVision” released its fifth episode of the show on Friday morning. Like the first three episodes of the show, the Marvel project paid homage to an old sitcom show (the fourth episode took place in a normal setting, which was more like a traditional Marvel movie). This time, the sitcom-like reality seen in the show took on the appearance of ones from the ’80s.
- The episode included an introductory theme song, too, which paid homage to “Full House.” At the end of the opening video, it showed a family sitting together at a park eating a meal — an exact reference to the “Full House” theme song.
- “WandaVision” star Elizabeth Olsen said back in January that the show will “wink” at “Full House,” as I wrote for the Deseret News.
- Olsen is the sister of twins Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, who starred on “Full House,” which included Lori Loughlin.
Social media reaction
Social media instantly began talking about the connection to “Full House.”

The way today’s wandavision episode was literally Full House type of it, especially the intro and the fact that Elizabeth Olsen’s older sisters were in Full House#WandaVision pic.twitter.com/CiKybeIWIg
The weirdest part of WandaVision for me is seeing an Olsen sister on a sitcom set, I know she wasn't on Full House but it's impossible not to think about it— jon rosenberg (@jonrosenberg) February 5, 2021
