How I Met Your Father Pays Touching Tribute to Bob Saget

Bob Saget, How I Met Your Mother

Earlier this week, the first two episodes of Hulu’s spinoff series to How I Met Your Mother, titled How I Met Your Father, were released. At the end of the second episode, the show paid tribute to the late Bob Saget, who was responsible for narrating the original CBS comedy, playing an older Ted Mosby.

Saget passed away earlier this month on Jan 9. at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Orlando, Florida, at the age of 65. Alongside his work on the NBC sitcom, he is best known for playing Danny Tanner on the ABC sitcom Full House and its Netflix sequel Fuller House.

When speaking to Variety, How I Met Your Mother and How I Met Your Father executive producers Craig Thomas, Carter Bays, and Pam Fryman had the following to say.

“The wit, the wisdom, and, above all, the kindness fans heard in Bob Saget’s voice (as Ted Mosby in the year 2030) was no act. It’s who Bob really was. And it’s how all of us in the ‘How I Met Your Mother’ family will always remember him. R.I.P. to a truly legendary human. You’ll be so missed, Bob, because you were so loved.”
