Doogie Howser, M.D. Kid Doctor

Who didn't watch
 Doogie Howser, M.D. in 1989?
As you know, I'm addicted to The Hub and their weeknight lineup. I especially enjoy watching Neil Patrick Harris as Doogie (Douglas) Howser, M.D. and his silly sidekick Vinnie Delpino played by Max Casella.

The ABC comedy drama aired for four seasons from 1989 to 1993 and focused on the life and times of a young prodigy doctor who finished med school at age 14. It was somewhat unbelievable, but that's what we loved about the show ... The idea that this cute kid close to our age was out there and doing the Saint Elsewhere/Quincy thing.

I have to admit, whenever I hear synthesizers without lyrics, especially at wedding cocktail hours, I always think of Doogie. Do you?

LOVE this show! I keep forgetting The Hub exists, though, so I haven't watched the show in ages LOL. That theme song was fantastic, though my favorite part was when he'd write in his computer journal at the end; even then the writer in me was beginning to come out, haha ;)

Doogie rocked!

I love Doogie (and NPH in general)! I have this theme song as the ring tone for my parents. Hahaha!

Believe it or not, I have two uncles who are doctors and their last name is Houser. You know how much shit they got when this show was on!

There is a Doogie Howser tribute from no other than Neil Patrick Harris himself on SNL. Google it, you won't be disappointed!
