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.[2]

Bob Hope meets Maude Flanders in Heaven.

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.[4]

Behind the Laughter

Bob Hope was voiced by himself in "Lisa the Beauty Queen," Hank Azaria in "D'oh-in' in the Wind," and Dave Thomas in "Bart Has Two Mommies."

Although Bob Hope himself does not appear in Insane Clown Poppy, he is indirectly referenced in Krusty's flashback to the time he impregnated Erin, as Krusty was shown to not only be operating in a USO tour at the time, but he was even seen holding a golf club during one of his comedy sketches, similar to Bob Hope.
