The Olsen Twins are, the twins, Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen. They were a pop culture sensation from around 1988-2004. They started working in television, when they shared the role of Michelle Tanner in hit ABC sitcom 'Full House', before they'd even hit their 1st birthday. In their time on 'Full House' they became beloved by audiences who couldn't get enough of Michelle's cute personality, as well as phrases such as "you got it dude". Because of their rise in popularity they began to star in movies together so people could see them interact with one another - titles include 'To Grandmother's House We Go', 'Double, Double, Toil and Trouble' and 'How the West Was Fun'. Even after 'Full House' was cancelled in 1995, the Olsens continued to release movie after movie and between 1998 and 2002 had starred in the 3 TV shows 'Two of a Kind', 'Mary-Kate and Ashley in Action!' and 'So Little Time'. Then after the the release of, their last movie together, 'New York Minute', in 2004, they've both faded away. The Olsen Twins are the ultimate washed up child stars.
