The big night came Monday as Robin Sparkles returned to “How I Met Your Mother” for the third time. As we reminded you yesterday, Robin Sparkles is the Canadian teen-idol alter-ego of the show’s Canadian TV morning show host Robin Sherbatsky, who is played by Canadian actress Cobie Smulders.
Robin Sparkles’ big return came in the form of an episode of “Space Teens,” which Barney discovered and parsed out in brief segments throughout Monday night’s “HIMYM” episode.
What we learned was that Robin’s persona actually came out of this kids’ show, in which she co-starred with her best friend Jessica Glitter (played by Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger). In the show, Robin and Jessica were lost in space and used math to solve crimes. It contained significant sexual undertones, including slow-motion shots of Robin and Jessica bouncing up and down and playing with a joystick in tremendously suggestive fashion. It culminated in the singing of a song about friendship, “The Beaver Song,” which repeats the line “Two beavers are better than one.”
