The Movie Fight That Entertained A Generation Just Got An Animal-Loving Twist

<p>Happy Gilmore</p>

In the 1996 comedy "Happy Gilmore," TV host and longtime animal advocate Bob Barker gets into a battle of epic proportions with actor Adam Sandler, eventually laying into him with a right hook. On a Thursday episode of the soap "The Bold and the Beautiful," Barker reprised his iconic role, playing a vigilante protecting animal activists everywhere.

The cameo is almost as memorable as his signature line - also about his well-known love for animals:

"Bob Barker reminding you: help control the pet population. Have you pet spayed or neutered!"

Barker, a strict vegetarian, has been involved in several animal causes for years - from the fight to stop Japanese whaling to saving big cats from circuses to, of course, setting up spay and neuter programs for cats and dogs.

Here's the original fight clip from "Happy Gilmore":
