While many child stars have had serious problems later in life, Neil Patrick Harris has proven to be one of the exceptions. He was thrust into the spotlight at age 16 as the star of his own hit ABC show, Doogie Howser MD
. He's received a lot of kidding about his alter-ego but he's always been happy to joke about it himself.
Doogie Howser, MD
centers around Douglas "Doogie" Howser, a protege who becomes a doctor at 14 and works as a resident surgeon in Los Angeles. The series stars Harris, Max Casella, Lawrence Pressman, James Sikking, Kathryn Layng, Belinda Montgomery, Lucy Boryer, Markus Redmond, Mitchell Anderson, Lisa Dean Ryan, and Rif Hutton.
Following the end of the series, Harris continued to act on television and also worked in movies and musicals. His second breakout role came in Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle
. That role led him to being cast in How I Met Your Mother.

. Harris filmed a nice Doogie
homage on Mother

. This past Saturday, he poked fun at the theme on Saturday Night Live
. Take a look...
