Danny played the role of the prude, strict father. Jessie was definitely the cool Uncle. Then there was Joey. In a way, Joey was a candidate for “cool Uncle” buuuut he gave off a few too many creepy vibes. Was it the corny, obnoxious jokes? I don’t know. Perhaps it was the “cut-it-out” thing he used to do? Or maybe, just maybe it’s the fact that he rarely showed interest in women his age throughout the entire series. Yes! That’s it. Any man in his thirties who is content telling jokes, doing sound effects and Popeye impressions to his three young nieces is automatically labeled a weirdo.
