* CreatorBacklash: Allegedly, Porky became an unpopular choice for some Warner staff, due to being less flexible and colorful than newer more abrasive stars like Bugs and Daffy. Director Frank Tashlin in particular noted his dislike for Porky and resented having to make endless shorts around him.

Even his own creator, Friz Freleng made fun of how much more boring he was utilise: -->'''Freleng:''' Nobody liked working with Porky Pig much because he was sort of a square.

* ThrowItIn: Porky's original voice actor was given the boot because his inability to control his very-real stutter made recording sessions last for hours. When Creator/MelBlanc took over, he kept the stutter in and [[PlayedForLaughs played it for comedy]].

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: In the early 1940s, BobClampett wanted to ditch the slimmer, redesigned Porky in order to go back to the original Fat Porky design, but Leon Schlesinger wouldn't let him, so he just did that to Elmer Fudd instead.

* TheOtherDarrin: While all the cast went through this trope following Blanc's death, Porky is one of a small number of characters for whom Blanc ''was'' TheOtherDarrin. Joe Dougherty initially played Porky, but was ultimately replaced by Blanc after Dougherty couldn't control his real life stutter during recording sessions, and then by BobBergen, who has played him in almost all official projects since then. It seems he's the only Looney Tunes character who's voice was replaced depending on who could do the best stutter.

** Bergen was very briefly replaced by BillyWest for the short "My Generation G-g-gap!" due to a dispute with producer Larry Doyle (West also provides his "T, t, that's All Folks!!!" at the end of all of Doyle's finished shorts). This change was planned to be permanent throughout all of Doyle's shorts though the series was quickly put to a halt, with Bergen taking over the role again in all later projects.
