    Bolke voiced Chumley the walrus on the 1963-66 Tennessee Tuxedo & His Tales cartoon series. Don Adams voiced the title character, a penguin. "Duh, what are we gonna do, Tennessee?" "We'd better go see Mr. Whoopee." Phineas J. Whoopee would help them solve problems by explaining different inventions or scientific principles. Yes, the show was semi-educational. Bolke also voiced characters on Casper, Underdog, The Year Without A Santa Claus and other series. Dayton Allen, his brother, was the voice of Heckle & Jeckle and characters on Deputy Dawg and Howdy Doody.

    Voice actor Bradley Bolke dies at 93
