Episode Summary

October 5, 1970

Bob Hope is surrounded by Women in this comedic special on Women's Lib. Appearing are Connie Stevens, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Virginia Graham, Kaye Ballard, Totie Fields, Sheila MacRae, Nanette Fabray, Martha Raye, Imogene Coca, Phyllis Diller, Edie Adams, Jo Anne Worley, Ruth Buzzi, Teresa Graves, Minnie Pearl, Nancy Walker and Irene Ryan.

When we meet Hope, he is doing the chores in his kitchen. Virginia Graham, one of the 17 lady guests, comes to find out why he has disappeared from television. In flashbacks, we see his specials being taken from him by Phyllis Diller, the news with a new Huntley-Brinkley report (from Minnie Pearl and Irene Ryan), Ruth Buzzi as his agent, Martha Raye and Teresa Graves as his dresser and make-up man, "Bonanza" with Kaye Ballard as Ma Cartwright and Jo Anne Worley as Hoss and Imogene Coca as Little Josie. There's a new player on the Rams (Zsa Zsa Gabor) and Mrs. Sarnoff, the head of the network, is Nanette Fabray. The final humiliation for Bob is when he has to dress as a rabbit and go to work in a club where the ladies (Sheila MacRae, Edie Adams and Connie Stevens) make passes and paw him. Totie Fields and Nancy Walker complete the list of women against Bob.
