Porky Pig as a character was instrumental in saving the Creator/WarnerBros cartoon studio from going under--by [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1935]], the studio had been in the doldrums after studio founders Creator/HarmanAndIsing left, taking early star character Bosko The Talk Ink Kid with them to Creator/{{MGM}}, leaving them with four things the names "WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes", "[[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Merrie Melodies]]", "ThatsAllFolks", and the virtually worthless, hastily cooked up {{Expy}} for Bosko, the incredibly bland Buddy. Suffice to say, the studio was in serious need of a kick in the pants, so in an effort to save the studio, Creator/FrizFreleng cooked up a batch of FunnyAnimal characters based on the ''[[Film/TheLittleRascals Our Gang]]'' series of shorts, as well as his childhood memories, who all made their debut in the Merrie Melodies cartoon "I Haven't Got a Hat": the troublemaking Beans the Cat, cute little Kitty the Cat, Ham and Ex the twin puppies, Oliver Owl the bookworm, and a pudgy little piglet with an uncontrollable stutter, intended as the sidekick for Beans.

* DemotedToExtra: As noted above, he was the first big star to emerge from the Warner stable and headlined a number of shorts. Even after WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck first appeared, he was still a star, but his leading roles began to decrease by 1942. While he had a long successful partnership with Daffy, 1943's "Porky Pig's Feat" was the last short to give him top billing over the duck. Much of his mid-40s and onward work consisted of Porky playing sidekick to zanier characters, with his own series limping to an end in 1951. Even into the 21st Century, his screentime is severely trumped by the other characters. Animator Mike Fontanelli (who works for WarnerBros) claims that Porky's current downplaying is a result of an unexplained dislike of the character by many WarnerBros executives.

** His voice also sounded different in his initial '30s cartoons, where his stutter was more apparent.

** His voice also sounded different in his initial '30s cartoons, where his stutter was more apparent. This is due to the fact that his original voice actor, Joe Dougherty, had an actual stutter problem.

Added DiffLines:

** His voice also sounded different in his initial '30s cartoons, where his stutter was more apparent.
** This could also apply to the first version of the ThatsAllFolks drum ending, where his design is radically different, especially when you compare that version to the newer, streamlined version used from late-1939 to 1946.
