Over the decades Bob Hope hosted many network specials on TV, often singing his signature song, Thanks for The Memories. The shows features celebrities and lots of laughs.
The Thanks for The Memories six DVD box set has 13 of these star studded original TV specials. Featured guests include Lucille Ball, Don Rickles, Bing Crosby, Dean Martin, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Frank Sinatra, Dinah Shore and Flip Wilson. In the Laughing with The Presidents episodes you’ll see George and Barbara Bush, Bill and Hilary Clinton and Gerald and Betty Ford. My favorite episode is Bob Hope: The First 90 Years, which was a show to celebrate his 90th birthday. It has live performances along with classic clips from the past.
The Bob Hope Specials is great for collectors and will provide hours of laughter and classic entertainment.

Thank you so much for featuring the The Bob Hope Specials: Thanks for The Memories DVD Set tonight as a giveaway, and for giving us a chance to win this today.
When Bob Hope was alive, it was a totally different America. It would be interesting to go back and see the relationship of that time period and its celebrities and compare them to now.
