CHICAGO — “It’s a rare condition, this day and age. To read any good news on the newspaper page.”

The home featured in the opening credits of the 1990s sitcom “Family Matters” has been approved for demolition, according to WGN.

The house is where the fictional Winslow family lived and the iconic character “Steve Urkel” frequently visited. You’ll likely remember Urkel’s nasally voice, clumsy nature and classic catchphrase: “Did I do that?”

According to DNA Info, the city approved a demolition permit for the home Tuesday. The permit allows the current homeowners to “wreck and remove” the two-story frame multi-unit residence.

The owners plan to build a three-unit residence on the lot.
