Family Matters

Show generally

Plot hole: The history on Urkel's Isetta is all wrong; in one episode he mentions that he paid $4 for a sunroof that he claims he bought used, however his uncle paid him $50 to take it away. In another, he claims his car has a speedometer that goes up to 30, but before it had a chalkboard. In "Hot Rods to Heck," the speedometer goes to 60 mph. The car would also screech, putter, sputter, smoke, break down, etc. but it seemed to be just fine in "Driving Carl Crazy," ''It's Beginning to Look a Lot like Urkel," and "Hot Rods to Heck."

Continuity mistake: From the outside of the house, you can see the staircase and door are to the far left of the house. But from inside the house, you have a fireplace and the staircase to the right of the door. So you know it's not the same house they use in the show.

Question: In the mistakes section it mentions that Richie's mother, Rachel, and the Winslow's younger daughter, Judy, disappeared without a trace. Was there ever any explanation?

Answer: It is said that as Steve Urkel became a more popular character on the show, Judy became less important to the storylines, plus either her or her parents were demanding more money, causing her to be removed from the show entirely.

Answer: No. Call it "Chuck Cunningham Syndrome". A character is written off the show without any explanation at all.
