Geek Of The Week: Steve Urkel

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!'

Jaleel is a great looking guy and a great actor as well. He was also cute as Steve Urkel.
