Jaleel White will return to the role that made him famous, a full two decades and then some since Family Matters ended. The actor is playing the nosy, nerdy neighbor in a new Scooby Doo series, lending the nasal needling of Urkel to new mysteries solved by Mystery Inc. 

White's turn as Urkel will be just one of several guest stars for the upcoming Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?, a series that is reviving a tried-and-true format along with Urkel. Similar to The New Scooby-Doo Movies, which saw the gang teaming up with the Harlem Globetrotters and Sonny & Cher, Guess Who? will pair the beloved characters with current stars. The season will include appearances from Halsey, Sia, Kenan Thompson, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Bill Nye, Chris Paul, Mark Hamill, and Wanda Sykes, among others. 

White was ecstatic to appear in an episode of the long-running cartoon, if his Instagram is any indication. 

“Walked in that booth after 20 years and voiced him like it was nuthin,” he wrote. “To be on screen with Scoob and Shaggy solving a mystery is #Bucketlist stuff 🙏🏽 Enjoy!”

Take a look at the trailer up top. Urkel's episode drops on Boomerang on June 27.
