(CNN) - Bob Barker is returning to The Price is Right to celebrate his 90th birthday.
Barker hosted the game show for 35 years, beginning in 1972.
He retired in 2007, and comedian Drew Carey took over hosting.
A pre-taped show featured an appearance by Barker will air on Dec. 12, which is his birthday.
He'll be honored the entire week with pet adoptions on the show, something Barker used to do on the program.
Barker has appeared on the show just one other time since he retired, to mark the release of his memoir.
