To celebrate his 90th birthday, Barker decided to return to The Price Is Right for another round of showcase showdowns.
The pre-taped show will air on Barker's birthday, Dec. 12, during a weeklong celebration that will feature pet adoptions in honor of the animal activist.
Barker has returned to the show only one other time since he handed over the skinny microphone to comedian Drew Carey in 2007.
Barker began hosting the show in 1972, and plans to spend all of his earnings on causes that he cares about, such as rescuing elephants from a Canada zoo.
"I had a job that I loved," he has said. "I was very well paid for it, and now I'm spending my money. I intend to die broke."
