** The reason MelBlanc's name is the only one seen in the voice credits for most of the cartoons, even the ones where there are obviously other actors, was because he was denied a raise.

** When Creator/BobClampett started out as a director, he was only allowed to make black-and-white WesternAnimation/PorkyPig cartoons. Tellingly, more than half of his filmography (44 black-and-white cartoons, and four color shorts) is made up of appearances of the character. Fortunately, Bob ''was'' allowed to use WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck alongside Porky in those shorts, and he did ''not'' take that for granted. Also of note is that, while Porky was mandated to appear in every early short he made, it was never stipulated how ''much'' he had to appear--Bob took advantage of this in the later black-and-white shorts by [[DemotedToExtra demoting]] Porky to fairly minor roles in favor of his own custom cast of characters (i.e. Porky is a narrator in "We, The Animals Squeak"). By 1941, Bob inherited Tex Avery's unit after he quit the studio, allowing to experiment with more shorts starring Bugs and Daffy, in addition to creating his own characters such as Tweety Bird. Tellingly, Porky only appeared in six of his color cartoons, two of which were remakes of previous Porky shorts, and one of them was only a very brief cameo in The Great Piggy Bank Robbery.

** The reason you wont be seeing any more milestone anniversaries or official filmographies for them is because Warner Bros. has a strict "No dates." policy, because they fear audiences won't care about the characters if they knew how old they are. It's also to ward off people who want to find out which of their cartoons are PublicDomain or not (even though that info can easily be found online). This was also given as a reason why they didnt do chronlogical DVD sets, bu they changed their minds with the Porky Pig 101 DVD set.

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: While the original shorts were not intended for television, it would be remiss to not mention the series relationship with ''Creator/CartoonNetwork''. In it's original format, the Looney Tunes was one of the libraries that made up a large chunk of the schedule and included a lot of the shorts in rotations. After the Time Warner merger this reunited the library but in the early 2000s this was not to last. Since then treatment of the LTs on CN and Boomerang has often been hot or cold based on the moment with only a fraction of what used to be aired anywhere near the schedule.



** The storyboards for "Porky's Party" show that Gabby Goat was also planned to make a fourth appearance, but was replaced with an unnamed bit player in the final film.
