Steve Urkel may have sported high water dork pants and world-class wedgies, but they didn't stop him from busting a mean move on the dance floor. He didn't fear the opposite sex. (Isn't that right, Laura?) Snort, snort, snort! — so it was only natural for him to take the floor and show all his fellas how to pelvic thrust with the ladies. Wholesome family programming, eh? (Thanks, eBaum's World!)
Every Wednesday on BuzzSugar, I post a Recast challenge, where I ask you to choose new actors for a classic TV show or movie. The reader who submits the best cast wins a BuzzSugar t-shirt!
I used to love watching "Family Matters" when I was younger and did you know (possible Buzz Brainteaser here!) that the show stemmed from the sitcom "Perfect Strangers"? It's true! Harriette Winslow was a recurring character on the third and fourth seasons of "Perfect Strangers," and was the character chosen to have her own series.
Anyway, if you could recast "Family Matters" with new actors, who would you pick for Harriette and Carl Winslow? What about their children Eddie and Laura (I'm leaving off Judy, who was on the show for some seasons but not all)? Then there's "Mother" Winslow (Carl's mother), the aunt Rachel and her little boy Richie. Finally, of course, who could properly whine Steve Urkel's catchphrase "Did I do that?"
Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, October 9, complete with a "new" cast photo. To see a list of characters to recast and a photo of the BuzzSugar t-shirt, read more
Remember that high pitched voice, snorting laugh, pants pulled up way too high with suspenders and those trademark thick geeky red glasses? If you didn't guess it already, I am indeed talking about Steve Urkel. Played by Jaleel White in the 1990s sitcom Family Matters, Urkel was the stereotypical 'geek.' If his looks weren't nerdy enough, his accident prone/socially awkward behaviors were 100% pure geek.
Check out the video below of Urkel being Urkel. Kinda makes you want to get up and 'Do The Urkel!'
