That’s correct, Jaleel White – the actor famous for his role as Steve Urkel was also the voice of our beloved Sonic The Hedgehog. When I originally discovered this, I was almost as shocked as I was when I found out about Realization #22. When I think of Urkel, I’m reminded of all things not cool. The suspenders, the thick glasses, the rolled up jeans and white socks, the accordion but most memorable of all: the obnoxious voice. In fact, if there’s any sound in the world that I think I could easily recognize – it’s Urkel’s voice. But, for whatever reason, when you don’t see the geek but you do see the awesome, blue hedgehog it’s harder to decode the voice. Sure he switched up the tone and pitch of his voice a little bit for the Sonic character but when I watch with the knowledge of the actor behind the voice, I don’t see how I didn’t pick up on this in the 90s.
