- This article is about Bob Hope the character. For the comedian and guest voice actor, please see Bob Hope.
Bob Hope was an American comedian.
Armed with a golf club and the mayor's name, he entertained the troops at Fort Springfield with the joke "Hey, this Mayor Quimby, he's some golfer. His ball spends more time underwater than Greg Louganis." Hope introduced Lisa, the then-reigning Little Miss Springfield, to show the soldiers what they would be "fighting for, if there was a war on." However, expecting Miss Springfield, the soldiers stormed the stage, forcing Lisa and Hope to flee on a helicopter. Hope asked to be set down at a boat show.When Homer was trying to educate himself in hippie culture, he watched one of Hope's old comedy sketches. In the sketch, Hope, portraying a hippie, was invited to a love-in and thought he would be attending with Jill St. John, but instead ended up with Phyllis Diller. Hope died at age 100 and entertained God in Heaven while Maude Flanders was trying to watch Rod down on Earth. God wondered why he had waited so long to bring Hope up to Heaven.
