Once in a while TV shows want to show their lead characters at an earlier time in their lives. The most fun is seeing the familiar characters dressed as and acting like kooky younger versions of themselves. Which TV flashback was the most fun? 

*characters must be played by the same actors as the present day 

The Big Bang Theory 
Buffy the Vampire Slayer 
Everybody Loves Raymond 
Friends 
Grey's Anatomy 
How I Met Your Mother 
New Girl 
The Vampire Diaries 
Will & Grace 

List: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls063831479

Friends is my favorite and uses the flashback episodes well.
Also, FYC: Suits, (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1632701) uses flashbacks with the actors who play the modern characters.

Can you please point out a photo that is good for the scene(s) and give a few words to describe the situation? (See other entries.)

"Flashback" episodes have contributed to some of the best Simpsons' classic... i'm not sure there've been many animated shows that used that trope, it would have been cool to have the Simpsons included as well.

I know it's about actors playing their younger self but maybe the list would be a bit longer that way
