I am so glad because the Family Matters franchise gets its first animated project. It's titled Did I Do That to the Holidays?: A Steve Urkel Story and it's gonna be an exciting Christmas story. Currently, as of this writing, Apple TV+, Hulu and Netflix are interested in the first Family Matters animated project. I am so excited. You?

Pretty sure it was one of those things that's looking for a new distributor. I don't think it's found one yet. But it hasn't been canceled. Yet.

Urkel Saves Santa: The Movie! is rated PG for "some rude humor". Might have changed its title but I imagine there are plans for it to be released if a rating is out.

Okay. Thread title changed.

The link in the above post says WB is still the distributor, so I suppose this project survived Zaslav's wrath unscathed.

I wonder if the rest of the Family Matters characters will be in this special, and if so, will they be voiced by the original actors (I would love to see Waldo show up).

The trailer was uploaded exclusively to iTunes, but someone decided to save us the trouble by recording their screen and uploading it to YouTube.

EDIT: Deleted. Darn.

Just like in Scooby-Doo and Guess Who, Steve Urkel's voice is just not the same past puberty. But, at least Jaleel White can still do the cadences.

As for the character, Urkel's still Urkel! A well-meaning, intelligent, and almost saintly but nerdy weapon of mass destruction that we all know and love! I also noticed Dana Snyder playing the voice of that short old guy in the trailer. Also, if you can remember, the "Urkel Saves Santa" font is exactly the same as Family Matters'.

I guess we're not getting the original Family Matters cast members (save for Urkel) to be in this.

I like that there seems to be an appropriate slight 90s vibe to the character designs; it's kind of filtered through the standard post-Family Guy aesthetic, but that's to be expected.

Urkelmania totally bypassed the UK incidentally; I remember having no idea who Homer was talking about in the "like Urkel!" joke from The Springfield Files. Hangin' With Mr Cooper was more of a thing here. Heck, Smart Guy was more of a thing here!

Missed opportunity: Warner Discovery should have premiered this on ACME Night sometime in December and then stream it on Max the following day.

Well dang. Grey DeLisle was originally scheduled to be doing a free gig this coming Saturday here in Phoenix, but she's no longer listed on the bill. I guess she had to back out. I was going to go because I love her music in addition to her VA work, but not anymore. I'm glad I didn't make a reservation.
Man, I wish I got paid for every time someone on this forum said they believed that Warner Brothers Discovery was going to ax, erase or sell off the Looney Tunes franchise. I could retire tomorrow.
Why do so many adults with no kids get so hopping mad about the existence of preschool shows and blocks? "Grr! I hate Cartoonito and Mickey Mouse Fun House! How dare they make preschool shows!" I don't get it.
Did the forum drop the swear rule? I've seen serious high tier swears and adult terms.
Just 10 more days until part 2 of Invincible's second season. Let's go!!!
