A Tommy Tale is the thirteenth episode of season 3 and the thirty-ninth episode of Fuller House overall.


D.J. pulls out all the stops to get Tommy into a prestigious preschool. Jackson and Ramona unplug for "Pioneer Day" -- so Kimmy decides to join them.


D.J. attempts to make Tommy appear smart and coming from a good household to get him into a prestigious preschool. D.J., however, remains in denial when the representative tells her Tommy is behind on his speech and that if he can catch up using a speech therapist, he can be accepted in the Spring and takes the representative's criticisms as an insult, vowing to take Tommy to a different preschool instead. Stephanie helps D.J. realize that Tommy is behind where Max and Jackson were at his age.

Max is sick with a flu on the day he is supposed to give a report on Ancient Rome. Max tries various attempts to sneak off to school and give his report such as trying to bribe Stephanie with cash and having Cosmo pose as him in bed, not wanting to be upstaged by Taylor. Stephanie helps him be able to give the report by streaming it for his class from her tablet.

Jackson and Ramona are forced to unplug for "Pioneer Day" at their school by Kimmy and D.J. with Ramona challenging Kimmy to do the same. Jackson and Ramona end up not making it to school without technology to help tell time and find directions. They eventually panhandle for money by singing and dancing until being detained by a police officer who mistakes them for Amish children.
