For anyone who's forgotten the importance of having their pets spayed or neutered, Bob Barker still has a message for you.

The iconic game show host is prepping a return to the tube on the occasion of his upcoming 90th birthday, when he'll appear on an episode of The Price Is Right.

The Dec. 12 episode, which sees Barker returning to the broadcast for just the second time since handing over the reins to Drew Carey in 2007, is part of a weeklong Barker celebration at the top-rated daytime game show. CBS also is planning on a week of pet adoptions in the animal activist's honor.

Barker already taped the episode, surprising the audience and presenting a special showcase. He hosted The Price Is Right between 1972 and 2007.
