Joey from 'Full House'

Mr. Woodchuck's Face

Was MAULED in Dog Attack

EXCLUSIVE

Mr. Woodchuck -- Uncle Joey's faithful puppet on "Full House" -- was gruesomely disfigured in a freak accident 17 years ago ... and now, Mr. Woodchuck is finally showing his face ... or what's left of it.

Dave Coulier -- who played Uncle Joey on the show -- dug up the old puppet from storage for a "Funny or Die" sketch, joking that Comet (the Tanner family dog) chewed up Mr. Woodchuck's foam face.

But Comet's just a scapegoat -- in reality, Mr. Woodchuck was the victim of Coulier's own dog who got a hold of the puppet soon after the show wrapped for good in 1995.

We're told Coulier's new video is scheduled to debut in the near future -- with a bonus cameo by everyone's favorite annoying neighbor ... Kimmy Gibbler.

Here's hoping she keeps her shoes on.

He was just Joey. They never called him Uncle Joey and he was not related to any of the characters. It always frustrates me when people refer to him as Uncle Joey.

Full House was awesome.

TMZ Staff, ask yourself if the changes I've asked for would make the site reader friendly. People are sick of all the BS comments made by people who are not held accountable. This website is hard to read because of the comments made. Implement a notification system like facebook. It will save this site. Nasty and hateful people can comment in 3....2.....1.....GO!

That's not even the same puppet. Look at the placement of the ears. Then- down in and droopy. Now- up and perky.

1995 is also the year that Alanis Morrissette released "You Ought To Know", which is about him (as is most of the rest of the album). Maybe it was really Alanis that did it.

I blame this on bath salts. Did this happen in Miami by chance?
