Hey! That's not Bob Hope!
In 1949, Bob Hope was one of America's biggest celebrities, having become famous in vaudeville, on radio, and in movies. With such a highly recognizable face, it is no surprise he ends up being one of the first real life people to get his own impersonator in comics.
Being published in November 1949, this character actually predates Bob's first appearance in The Adventures of Bob Hope from National Periodicals/DC a year later.
Note: the comic is public domain, and I got this scan from the Golden Age Comics Archive Plus these were very large scans, so dialup beware.
