Family Matters’ Steve Urkel Actor Jaleel White Talks How The Role Really Helped His Dating Life
Stefan Urquelle was introduced in Family Matters Season 5’s “Dr. Urkel and Mr. Cool.” In the episode, Steve, aware of how tired Laura has become of his nerdy and clumsy tendencies, develops a formula using his “cool genes,” which transforms him into Stefan Urquelle. Not only does the concoction straighten his posture, deepen his voice and improve his eyesight, but it also lands him Laura. Unfortunately, Stefan is initially vain and apathetic to other people’s problems, until Steve later adjusts the formula to give him sincere feelings.
