Porky Pig is the oldest continuing Looney Tunes cartoon character and one of the most beloved. Created by American cartoonist and director Fritz Freleng, the bashful, stuttering, bow-tie-wearing animated pig made his first appearance in the Warner Brothers short film, I Haven’t Got a Hat, in 1935. Instantly popular, Porky Pig went on to star in dozens of films in the late 1930s and became a regular character in the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of cartoons. In fact, during what is known as the golden age of American animation (from the 1928 advent of cartoons with sound to the end of the 1960s), Porky Pig appeared in more than 150 cartoons, culminating in his own compilation shows The Porky Pig Show and Porky Pig and Friends.

In modern times, kind-hearted Porky Pig has starred in video games, made movie cameos and appeared as a regular character in Cartoon Network’s The Looney Tunes Show and New Looney Tunes, where he often plays peace-keeper between Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny. Porky’s wife is Petunia Pig and they have a son, Pinkster Pig.

Known for the closing line, “Th-th-th-that’s all folks!”, Porky Pig was first voiced by Joe Dougherty, followed by iconic voice artist Mel Blanc from 1937 until Blanc’s death in 1989.
