Watching George Takei play a video game is just about as adorable as watching a newborn fawn walk for the first time — only a lot more entertaining.

The “Star Trek” actor laughs his way through multiple levels of Maro Party 4 on actress Felicia Day’s retro-gaming show “Co-Optitude” on Geek and Sundry’s YouTube channel.

After Takei had Day as a guest on “Takei’s Take,” his new YouTube talk show about social media and technology, it was only fitting that he co-star on the YouTube show that Day normally co-hosts with her brother Ryon Day.

Playing in co-op mode for 10 rounds against the computer, Takei is Yoshi and Day is Peach. Highlights include Day wearing her Toad hat; Takei reading the dialog aloud in character as only he can; and Takei getting excited that the game controller vibrates.
