Reunited and it feels so good

It's been years since their triumphant exit from NBC's Thursday night line-up, yet fans can rejoice in some serenity now because the cast of "Seinfeld" are coming together again to appear on Larry David's HBO-hit "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

A reunion that's sure to make everyone bust into an Elaine-like convulsion dance.

HBO hasn't released much in terms of details of the gang's return but can confirm that Jerry Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander and Michael Richards will all be back to guest star in at least a few episodes. Hooray!

Well, minus Richards' return ... Did someone say awkward?! (Perhaps Michael can take some acting tips from David's racist dog.)

Seriously, there better be a few cracks about Kramer's apparent racist ways -- let's talk about the giant purple elephant in the room -- and at least one rip on Julia's horrific "New Adventures with Old Elaine," er, Christine. Heck, I'd even be up for a few bee jokes for Jerry. And for Jason, well, according to, I guess he was on "Criminal Minds" not too long ago, but joking about that would just be sad.

The cameo on "Curb" isn't the first time for Louis-Dreyfus, Alexander or Seinfeld -- perhaps you recall the debacle over the pilot casting Alexander as another "loser" (making reference to the character George, loosely based off David) or Julia's fan meeting which ends with her giving Larry's neighbor an Elaine-esque scolding. And who can forget Seinfeld's perfectly timed look of disapproval as David bombs on stage during his uncomfortably awkward run in the "The Producers."

Though the actual plotlines are unknown, here at Channel Surfing, we have a few ideas for scenarios we'd love to see ...

Stay tuned.
