As this interview (from 2008) with co-creator Craig Thomas reveals: We've had a plan since the pilot and we actually shot a little piece of it at the beginning of season two, using the kids, because we knew if we waited until the finale of the series, the kids would have aged like six years.

Yeah this question seems to come up a lot since the Family Guy episode where Peter asked this. Interestingly enough even though it's well known that Bob Saget is the voice of the Narrator he is not credited. No reason has been given so far as to why he is the Narrator. They have even shown Future Ted in the show and he sounds just like Present Ted. My best ...

First of all, if you haven't seen the series finale, this answer might be considered a spoiler (it was for me, as I haven't seen the finale yet).

"6 years earlier" which means that it was most likely Wednesday, October 31, 2007, assuming the party was ...

It is that most likely the producers shot this flash back scene back in season 7 as they had access to Katie Holmes being the slutty pumpkin in the backround during the production of the episode. They probably saved and later edited this clip into season 9 for the flash back footage, this can be confirmed by a few simple observations between the s7 episode ...
