Johnny Depp to Reprise Edward Scissorhands Role on 'Family Guy' (VIDEO)

Edward's return!

Johnny Depp is reprising his role as Edward Scissorhands – in the most animated way.

The 49-year-old will return as the synthetic youth in an upcoming episode of the FOX comedy cartoon, Family Guy, according to Entertainment Weekly.

But Depp needed some inspiration to channel his inner Scissorhands once again.

“When he was in the booth, he said that he felt like he hadn’t done that voice since he did it in front of the camera,” Family Guy executive producer Mark Hentemann told EW. “He was able to snap right back into Edward Scissorhands once we pulled up a clip from the movie.”

He was also able to charm the show’s female staff.

Said Hentemann: “He was amazing — and demonstrated extraordinary patience with all the fawning women in our office who swarmed him.”

Edward Scissorhands, about a man who’s built by an eccentric inventor and has scissors for hands, was released in 1990. The Tim Burton-directed flick earned $86 million at the box office, and also starred Depp's then girlfriend Winona Ryder.

    I Edward Scissorhands. To me it is the best movie since E.T. Before the Avengers. And Beetlejuice. All of these movies really good movies.
