Adventures of Bob Hope #107

Adventures of Bob Hope #107 (On Sale: Aug 3, 1967) has another nice cover by Neal Adams.

"Summer H-E-L-L-L-P" is written by Arnold Drake and drawn by Neal Adams. With school out for summer the students of Benedict Arnold High try out some summer jobs. Bob Hope's houseguest, boy genius Tad, gets a job sweeping floors at a nuclear power plant, but is soon fired for doing everyone's job better than they do it.

He eventually gets hired at a gas station as a mechanic and then hires on some of his female schoolmates to pump gas wearing skimpy outfits. The long lines at the gas station attract the attention of the monster staff of Benedict Arnold who are upset that the students are making money over the summer and they are not.

The monsters get jobs at a crooked car dealer as salesmen. The dealer's assistant steals cars at night, repaints them and puts them up for sale on the lot. The dealer, Straight Shootin' Newton, is looking for a few patsies to take the fall when the cops get wise and the Benedict Arnold staff foot the bill perfectly. Their first customer? Bob Hope!
