Series Info

A suburban Chicago family is pestered by nerdy, nosy neighbor Steve Urkel in this long-running spin-off of 'Perfect Strangers' (Harriette Winslow was the wisecracking elevator operator at the newspaper where Larry and Balki worked). Originally, Urkel was a supporting character but he quickly emerged as a breakout star whose shenanigans came to dominate the sitcom.
