: What was the origin of "Is that your problem, Bunky?" I have a fuzzy memory of a recorded comedy routine: a creaky male voice, possibly with music, delivering a sort of pep talk that sounded like a parody of sales pitches for home remedies. Was this a radio or TV routine? Name of performer? A search on Google reveals only that many people say "Is that your problem, Bunky (sometimes Binky)?" when posting on bulletin boards, especially the ones about making your computer behave.

I have that same fuzzy memory -- there was a TV ad featuring a man's funny little voice. It seems that the same guy did a cartoon voice. Maybe our resident ad expert will know.
