A 12-minute interview with the now-adult Neil Patrick Harris, who talks about the problems of being a child actor. He was the same age as Doogie -- 16 in Season 1, 19 in Season 4 -- and had to adhere to child-labor laws, not to mention the horrors of going through puberty in front of America. (He confirms what was obvious to viewers: He didn't reach even the beginnings of adolescence until he was 15, and he grew about four inches in height between Season 2 and 3.)

It's an enlightening and amusing segment, particularly when Harris talks about the finer points of following (and evading) the child-labor laws, and the accommodations that had to be made for his minor status.

James Sikking spends nine minutes reflecting on his role as Doogie Howser's dad. He talks a lot about his relationship with Neil Patrick Harris, and he covers some of the same territory as Harris (i.e., the challenge of filming with stand-ins for Doogie while Harris was with his law-mandated tutor). He speaks fondly of his time on the show, and seems to be sincere about it. (9:33).
