How I Met Your Mother is giving fictional Canadian teen pop celebrity Robin Sparkles a Canuck-studded farewell.
Canadian icons Alan Thicke, Alex Trebek, Jason Priestley, musicians Geddy Lee, k.d. lang, Steven Page, Paul Shaffer, and former NHL star Luc Robitaille will appear on a special Canadian-themed Feb. 4 episode of the popular sitcom, CBS announced Tuesday.
As portrayed by Cobie Smulders, Sparkles (loosely based on Alanis Morissette's early career) is the former identity of Robin Scherbatsky, a Canadian expat living in New York. Her teen stardom is a source of constant amusement for her friends.
