Before Jaleel White was uncool on Family Matters, he was very cool eating Apple Jacks. How cute was the 11-year-old in that 1988 commercial?


Could Family Matters be revived as a cartoon?
June 25th, 2018 under Jaleel White. [ Comments: none ]

When you think of Steve Urkel, you think he is so animated that he would make a great cartoon series? Therefore, could his character and the Winslow family come back as animated characters? Jaleel White answered that very question on Twitter, “Couldn’t agree more 💯 Animated series was pitched and rejected by the show’s original producers. Steve’s inventions made it all a cartoon by today’s TV standards but they didn’t see it that way 🤷🏽‍♂️ Thanks for the support. Check us out on @hulu.”

I think the producers are making a huge mistake because if anyone can take on The Simpsons and Family Guy, it is Family Matters. Best part, we do not have deal with older versions of the characters we know and love. They can be just the way were. Who wants a 40-year-old Urkel when he could still be that nerdy teen driving everyone crazy?

Especially since White based his character after Ed Grimley and Martin Short turned that dream into one of animation gold.

Would you like to see Family Matters: The Cartoon?

Before Jaleel White had those Urkel dance moves on Family Matters, he was showing them off for Lionel Richie in a Pepsi ad. How cute was the 8-year-old in that 1985 commercial?


Jaleel White reveals who he based Urkel on!
October 5th, 2017 under Jaleel White. [ Comments: none ]

We all fell in love with Urkel from Family Matters and thought he was completely original character. Turns out that Jaleel White based him on another beloved character from that era. He told Entertainment Weekly, that the lovable geek was based on Martin Short’s Ed Grimley from Saturday Night Live. Now that you know, it is completely obvious. I cannot stop seeing the two actors with their pants up to their nipples. What about you?
