LOS ANGELES - Bob Barker hosted "The Price Is Right" for 35 years, but he wasn't invited to participate in the game show's 40th anniversary special.
The 88-year-old TV personality says the show's producers "chose to ignore me, which is fine."
"They haven't even offered me a DVD," Barker said in an interview Tuesday. Show producers had no comment.
The 40th anniversary special episode aired Tuesday morning and featured returning contestants from the past 40 years. Barker is shown in several clips but was not invited to appear on the program or attend the taping.
Barker announced his retirement in 2006 and hosted his final show in 2007. He was replaced by Drew Carey.
Barker made a special appearance on the show -- which is taped at CBS' Bob Barker Theater -- in 2009.
