How Much Was Bob Saget Worth At The Time Of His Death?

After appearing on-screen for decades and cementing his place in TV history, Bob Saget was worth an estimated $50 million at the time of his death, according to Celebrity Net Worth. But he didn’t only rake in the cash, he also earned plenty of fans — and that’s something Saget was well aware of.

“People feel like they know me,” he told AL.com in July 2021, referencing his many years on screen. “And that’s what happens from being in people’s living rooms when they grew up. Then they watched the other stuff that I did with my (stand-up) specials or other parts I’ve done, and they realize, oh God, this is hilarious, the duality.” And it’s true — those familiar with his squeaky-clean role of Danny Tanner may have been shocked by the sailor mouth in his stand-up, but he always was multilayered.

Still, his “Full House” role may be the most adored. In 2016, Saget told Willamette Week, “It’s not just a show I was on. It’s a cultural phenomenon,” before declaring, “So yes, Danny Tanner is part of me.” Additionally, he told AL.com that the show “meant everything” to him. And no, it wasn’t about the income. “I was never a guy who was like, ‘I’m gonna be rich and have all this stuff’ … I just wanted to do my work.” In that same conversation, he mentioned always being “hungry” for more work and claimed he “never would retire.” It’s incredibly sad Saget’s career was cut short, and fans will surely be mourning the star for a long time to come.
