Th-Th-Th-Th-Th-... That's all, folks

Porky Pig was designed in 1935 by animator Bob Clampet. Porky the pig had a minor role in the film I Haven't Got a hat. During this time Porky's stutter became famous. The man behind the stutter was Joe Dougherty who actaully had a stuttering problem. The stutter became a nuisance, the production costs of recording became expensive and
would take hours. Mel Blanc took Doughetry's place where he continued using the
stutter. Blanc was the official voice for Porky untill his death in 1989. Porky and
Daffy Duck were soon showcased together. You Ought To Be In Pictures
was the first animation as a duo. Porky Pig was shown on television regularly
in the 1960's. On Saturday afternoons The Porky Pig Show ran from 1964-1967.
He appeared in many other programs like , Porky Pig and Friends , a film shown
in art and college theaters , Porky Pig in Hollywood, later in the 1990's in
Tiny Toon Adventures.
