"Key and Peele" has released a funny sketch on Vulture mocking 90s sitcom "Family Matters," which more or less became "The Steve Urkel Show."

In the sketch, Jordan Peele plays sitcom dad Reginald VelJohnson and is fed up with being upstaged by Urkel and his nerdiness. A future plotline includes Urkel turning him into "a giant sandwich" and eating him, and yet another introduces an Urkel clone.

"This was supposed to be a blue collar 'Cosby Show,'" Reg screams. "Now you turn it into goddamn 'Quantum Leap,' who writes this shit?"
