Tears Of A Clown: Comedic Characters Who Had Sad Backstories
Steve Urkel in “Family Matters”
Did anyone else wonder why Steve was constantly over at the Winslow’s house? He would always give a quick quip about his family trying to get away from him while the recorded laughter would ensue, and then he would begin to torment the Winslows.
But it’s not until you actually pay attention to those little quips Steve would say that you realized that his parents didn’t really like him that much. They would leave and go on vacation without him, lock him in the house, during a moment of being hypnotized Steve recalled his father trying to push him back in after he was born, and the list goes on and on.
So maybe that’s why he was so needy with the Winslows?
