Steven Tyler will play himself in the upcoming animated episode of Hot in Cleveland. According to TV Land, the July 30th half-hour will use the Aerosmith frontman as a “guide through [the series regulars’] animated adventure.”

Once Melani (Valerie Bertinelli), Victoria (Wendie Malick) and Ella (Betty White) meet up with Tyler in Ella’s apartment they’ll “go on a psychedelic romp through pop cultures, including scenes with homages to Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, The Walking Dead and Frankenstein. Then, jumping on the hottest sports story of the summer, they’ll also see what life in Cleveland would have been like if LeBron James had never left. The NBA superstar just announced his return to the Cleveland Cavaliers after spending three seasons with the Miami Heat.
