Before they became staples on CBS sitcoms “How I Met Your Mother” and “The Big Bang Theory” respectively, Neil Patrick Harris paid a brief visit to Mayim Bialik on her show, “Blossom.”

In this flashback clip, Patrick is seen in 1991 at the height of his “Doogie Howser” fame, hobnobbing with Bialik’s Blossom in a fantasy episode entitled “Rockumentary.” In the episode, Blossom lies in bed sick and watches rock-themed movies, falling into a hallucination in which she’s the most famous rock star in the world.

Harris appeared in the episode as an equally snotty star named Derek Slade, who encourages Blossom to dump her father as her manager.

“Blossom” premieres Monday, July 7 at 10 p.m. and airs weekdays at 10 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. on the Hub Network. The “Rockumentary” episode, which also features Tori Spelling and Dick Clark, will air on Friday, July 11 at 10:30 p.m.
