blue vein steel It seems a lot of pop-and-lock dancers from the 80s got second careers as TV robots in the 90s.
Born in the RSR I'm glad I can spread the joy of german pop-culture in the 90s to all my internet kumpels.
SolRo Gotta respect the actor in the suit. Very good moves for a bit role.
betamaxed The performer in the suit was none other than Michael "Boogaloo Shrimp" chambers aka "Turbo" from Breakin' and Breakin' 2
Gaseous_Planet As good as the voice acting is, "war ich das etwa?" doesn't have the same ring to it.
Spit Spingola Kraftwerk wrote a song called "Hast du den Käse?" but they decided against including it on Die Mensch Maschine because it didn't fit in well enough with the theme of the album. It would have been perfect to have Urkel-bot sing it. :(

Siebenstein Needless to say, this show was enormously successful in Germany. Urkel is dubbed by the same guy who does the German voice for Spongebob Squarepants.
