Whats the deal with Bob Saget?

Seriously ive asked my self this question about 100 times, WHY oh god Why is Bob Saget on this show, i mean Ted's not going through puberty his voice is not gonna change one bit, i mean common, did someone take pity on Bob Saget and gave him a job or something because i see no logical reason this guy should be in this, Do you?

We've debated this at home, too. My theories are:1- Logistics of the actors/filming. It's more time efficient and all to have a second actor do the voice overs in a recording studio while the plot is being shot elsewhere.2- When the show started, how many of the actors were big names? Alyson Hannigan was known to younger people through Buffy and Am Pie, but maybe not so much to older people. Was Jason Segal famous yet for his movies? Maybe they needed a known name/voice to bring people in. Who doesn't know Bob Saget? You watched him on Full House either as a kid or with your kids.3- The different voices allow the viewers to differentiate between "future" Ted and "current" Ted. Sure, in real life your voice isn't going to change that much between 30 and 50, but when Bob Saget talks, you know damn well that it's Older Ted doing a voiceover, and speaking from hindsight many years later.
Make sense, or is it just me?

i dont mind bob saget being on the show.
bengela u make a good point .but the reason i started watching how i met your mother was cause of Jason Segal he was so good in freaks and geeks and in undeclared, so when i heard he was on this show i had to check it out.

I agree, him1788, i adore Jason Segal, too. I watched him in those show, too, though I didn't know hime by name yet at that time, only by face. I'm glad he's finally getting his due.
