An Ode to ‘Parks and Rec’s Chubby Andy Dwyer

By

With Chris Pratt starring in the upcoming superhero flick Guardians of the Galaxy, his Andy Dwyer is returning to Parks and Recreation this season in noticeably better shape. While the show won’t making too big a fuss over his weight loss when it premieres tomorrow night, we’re going to miss the chubbier version of Andy lumbering around Pawnee. So we decided to take a look back at some of our favorite Andy Dwyer moments from the first five seasons, and hope that Andy’s newly svelte body won’t change him too much:

With Ben and April working in D.C. last season, Andy got the chance to visit our nation’s capital and give a one-of-a-kind tour of the historic city.

Chris Pratt may be a superhero these days, but here’s hoping Andy remains the gum-swallowing, wrapper-eating, near-sighted klutz we’ve come to love.

Also, computers are not Andy’s strongest area.

Before Andy and April become one Pawnee’s cutest couples, Andy had some pretty logical reasons why they shouldn’t get together.

But of course, they did. And the vows Andy and April wrote for their surprise wedding tell you everything you need to know about their relationship.

No look at the life of Andy would be complete without a Mouse Rat retrospective.
