Did you think How I Met Your Mother‘s Ted Mosby had the emotional maturity of a toddler? In a new video from Mumbai-based comedy channel Romedy Now he is a toddler, which makes him not only tolerable, but downright adorable.

The video recasts the entire crew from How I Met Your Mother as adorable half-pints looking for love among the fingerpaints and fishsticks at a pint-sized tea party hosted at a kid-friendly version of MacLaren’s, which is not strange at all. Fans will note that baby Barney has as much swagger as his full-grown counterpart.

Sadly, the creators did not use the opportunity provided by the new and far more adorable cast to re-imagine the series’ fan-frustrating ending. Coming up with an ending that will appease fans who stuck with How I Met Your Mother for nine seasons will have to be left to fan fiction.
