Dayton Allen, comedian and voice actor (September 24, 1919 - November 11, 2004) was born Dayton Allen Bolke in New York City,. He was best known as one of the "men in the street" on The Steve Allen Show, where his catchphrase was a drawn-out "Why not!". He is also famous for his children's television work on Winky Dink And You and Howdy Doody in the 1950s. In the 1960s he was best known for the cartoons he voiced, such as Deputy Dog and Heckle And Jeckle, as well as the live action chimpanzee show Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp. Like Art Carney, who was one of Dayton Allen's school friends from A.B. Davis High School in Mount Vernon, New York, Allen began his career in radio. In 1937-1938 WINS (AM) hired him as a disc jockey. His "Why Not?" gag began when he joined the cast of the NBC Sunday night variety show that Allen began hosting to compete against Ed Sullivan on CBS. It was a stalling ad-lib to an interview question; then it caught on. Allen used it for television commercials and saw novelty toys, a book and a record spin off from the "Why not?" phenomenon. In its day, fans were shouting "Why not?" as often as Mad Magazine's famous "What? Me Worry?" After his show business career ended, Allen became a wealthy real estate agent, operating out of an office in Dobbs Ferry, New York, where he refused offers to return to the entertainment industry. He died in Hendersonville, North Carolina aged 85 of complication from a stroke.
