* ''Radio/ImSorryIHaventAClue'': Spoofed in a round where the players had to improvise a detective story with the title "Murder by Moonlight": almost immediately, Barry Cryer established that "Moonlight" was the name of the butler. [[spoiler:He was innocent, though.]]

* Possibly the first work to depict a butler who "did it" appeared in 1915 - when E. Phillips Oppenheim, at the time a well-known writer, authored a thriller called "The Black Box" ([https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Black_Box_(serial)]/ [http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/17197]). It was successful as both a book and a film serial. It features an American gangster who goes to England and manages to gain the impeccable mannerisms of a perfect British butler. He gets the complete confidence of Lord Ashleigh, a rather gullible aristocrat of ancient lineage. Eventually, when Lord Ashleigh decides to send his daughter to study music in New York and gives her as a parting gift the Ashleigh Diamonds (a priceless family heirloom), he sends along his trusted butler "to keep an eye on her". The tragic result is that once across the Atlantic, the butler proceeds to murder the girl and abscond with the diamonds. However, the nasty butler is no match to the dashing star detective Sanford Quest, who lays him by the heels after just a few pages. The true challenge comes from a lesser servant (not a butler), who is implicated in various other murders and villianies, who is endlessly resourceful and slippery, and who leads the book's merry band of band of detectives on a wild chase all around the globe - which takes the bulk up the bulk of the plot.
