Vinnie John Travolta will reunite with the cast of "Welcome Back, Kotter" to honor the 1970s comedy's 35th anniversary at the TV Land Awards 2011.

The ceremony will be taped April 10 in New York City's Jacob K. Javits Convention Center for broadcast on April 17 on TV Land.

Other "Kotter" co-stars scheduled to participate in the reunion include Lawrence Hilton-Jabobs, Ron Pallilo and Marica Strassman.

Travolta, who played Vinnie Barbarino, was starring in the series when he was cast in "Saturday Night Fever," the disco movie that launched his movie career.
