May 29: The Birth of Hope

On this day in 1903, comedian, actor and entertainer Bob Hope was born in London, England (he became a U.S. citizen in 1920). Known for his appearances in vaudeville, on Broadway, and in radio, television, and movies - Hope was most noted for his work with the U.S. Armed Forces and his numerous USO tours.
Although Hope never voiced a Disney animated character or appeared in a Disney feature film ... his career crossed paths with Walt Disney and his company many times.

Here's just one example:
