This article is about Bob Hope the comedian and guest voice actor. For the character, please see Bob Hope (character).

Bob Hope (May 29, 1903 – July 27, 2003) was a comedian and actor, mostly known for his goodwill tours around the world, commitment to providing entertainment for U.S. military personnel via the USO, and his longtime friendship with Bing Crosby. In 1996, the United States Congress honored Hope by declaring him the "first and only honorary veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces."

Hope voiced himself in the episode "Lisa the Beauty Queen". He was 89 when he recorded the part, but he was animated to appear more youthful.

When the Bob Hope character appeared in "D'oh-in' in the Wind," Hank Azaria provided the voice. In "Bart Has Two Mommies," which aired after Hope died, Dave Thomas voiced the Hope character.

Hope died at the age of 100 in 2003. His last words were, "Surprise Me."

Hope is 1 of 2 centenarians to appear on the show. The other one is Kirk Douglas, who died at 103.
