Harry Potter in Growing Pains

Speaking of ’80s sitcoms, I just found this video from 2008, which shows how the Harry Potter cast grew up by using a quick series of still photographs like the old Growing Pains main title. I think it’s one of the better ideas for a main title parody/mash-up (and there are thousands of them on YouTube), because it actually has a point to it. Someone should do an updated version, if there isn’t one already, and then keep updating it — like the “Up” movies, except with Harry Potter and set to an ’80s sitcom theme tune.
