Family Matters TV Show Facts

The Winslows - and their nerdy neighbor Steve Urkel - took America by storm in the 1990s and haven't looked back since. Though the series finale aired in 1998, the show still airs weekdays on ABC Family. Check it out!

Family Matters - Main Cast

  • Carl Winslow - Reginald VelJohnson
  • Harriette Winslow - Jo Marie Payton (and later Judyann Elder)
  • Eddie Winslow - Darius McCrary
  • Laura Winslow - Kellie Shanygne Williams
  • Judy Winslow - Jaimee Foxworth
  • Estelle Winslow - Rosetta LeNoire
  • Steve Urkel - Jaleel White
  • Rachel Crawford - Telma Hopkins

Family Matters - Fun Facts

  • A few seasons into Family Matters, the writers decided to get rid of the character of Judy. She walked up the stairs in one episode and never came down.
  • Family Matters was actually a spin-off of the popular '80s series Perfect Strangers. Harriette was an elevator operator in that series, and when it ended she was given her own show.
  • Steve Urkel was only supposed to appear in one episode, but was so popular with viewers that he was brought on as a regular character.
  • There was supposed to be a 10th season in which Laura and Steve get married but the show was cancelled in its ninth season.
  • He most notably played Steve Urkel, but Jaleel White played more than seven characters over the course of the show.
