Gone but not forgotten. America’s Funniest Home Videos honored former host Bob Saget on Sunday, January 16, following his sudden death a week prior.Saget, 65, hosted the long-running ABC show for eight years, from 1990 until 1997, which overlapped with his time playing Danny Tanner on Full House.

During the episode, which featured clips from his tenure on AFV, host Alfonso Ribeiro celebrated the comedian’s talents.“As you’ve heard, the world lost a legend last week, and AFV lost a family member,” the Dancing With the Stars alum, 50, said. “Bob Saget is synonymous with AFV to this day, and this show wouldn’t have been the same without his unique sense of humor.

It’s been my honor to continue carrying the torch Bob so brightly lit.”In his honor, America’s Funniest Home Videos asked that fans consider donating to the Scleroderma Research Foundation.

Saget vowed to raise awareness for scleroderma research after he lost his sister, Andrea, to a brain aneurysm in 1987.“For more than 30 years he was a champion of the scleroderma community, helping to raise awareness about this complex disease and millions of dollars to fund research for a cure,” the caption on AFV‘s YouTube video reads. “Bob was unparalleled in his generosity and dedication to the mission of the SRF and will be remembered for his deep compassion, uncommon kindness and huge heart.”One day after a stand-up performance at Ponte Vedra Concert Hall in Florida, Saget was found dead in his Orlando hotel room on January 9.
