Neil Patrick Harris Channels ‘Creepy’ Doogie Howser on ‘Late Late Show’ (Video)

On ”The Late Late Show With James Corden,“ Harris admits he rewatches ”Dougie Howser, M.D.“

Neil Patrick Harris stopped by “The Late Late Show with James Corden” on Wednesday night, and he made fun of his teenage voice from the ’90s show, “Doogie Howser, M.D.”

The actor starred in the long-running sitcom as a precocious genius who deals with the usual problems of growing up, all the while being a licensed physician in a demanding residency program.

When Corden asked Harris whether he ever rewatches the show, Harris looked back on the voice of his character.

“Yeah, they are airing it a lot now on the flix of net,” Harris said, referencing the streaming service Netflix. “It’s weird to watch, because […] I sound like I was in the ‘Wizard of Oz’ of something.”

Harris goes on to re-create his famous voice, staying true to the “s” sounds sounding like “sh” sounds that his character used to make — which he admits was pretty unsettling paired with a munchkin-like pitch.

“Yeah, its creepy, and finally my testicles dropped, and I feel much better!” After all, Harris was 16 years old when the show started filming.

“Doogie Howser, M.D.” aired from 1989 to 1993 and costarred Max Casella, Belinda Montgomery and Lawrence Pressman. It ran on ABC and totally 97 episodes.
