Question: This has been bugging me for years. Is the voice on those Country Crock commercials the same guy who played Mr. Carlin on The Bob Newhart Show? — Eric S., Seattle

Televisionary: Sharp ears, Eric. The voice is indeed that of actor Jack Riley, who played the neurotic Elliott Carlin, a regular patient of Dr. Bob Hartley's, on the hit '70s series. You may have also heard his voice work on Rugrats and its spin-off, All Grown Up.
