When Uncle Jesse invited Michelle Tanner to his 50th birthday party, she was like, "You got it, dude!"

Yes, John Stamos celebrated with Full House costar Ashley Olsen on Monday, Aug. 26, at a star-studded bash in L.A. Bob Saget, Candace Cameron Bure and Lori Loughlin (aka Danny, D.J., and Aunt Becky) also fêted the age-defying actor.

Loughlin tweeted a photo of herself and Olsen, writing, "I had a great time hanging with Ashley last night! Such a beauty inside and out." Cameron Bure also shared a sweet, nostalgia-inducing Instagram of herself with Stamos and Saget, captioning the shot, "Family Forever"

In addition to Stamos' Full House friends, Nia Vardalos, Johnny Knoxville, Priscilla Presley, Linda Cardellini, Darren Criss, Kristin Chenoweth, South Park's Matt Stone, Oscars producers Craig Zaden and Neil Meron and Kristin Davis attended the star-studded, rat-pack themed affair. Musical guests for the evening included The Beach Boys and Tom Jones.

Legendary comedian Don Rickles joked and paid tribute to the birthday boy, hilariously roasting Stamos for his good looks. Garry Marshall, 87, also praised his longtime friend for walking through life with "class and style," adding, "I love him and I love all of you who paid your respects to a gentleman who God will bless forever."

Stamos' mom Loretta Stamos (who also appears to be blessed by the fountain of youth!) celebrated her son's birthday as well, posing for a sweet Polaroid Fotobar picture.

Midway through what the actor described as "the greatest night of his life," he compared himself to Willy Wonka, exclaiming, "I got the golden ticket."

Sounds like a sweet evening.
