'''''Porky Pig''''' was the first true star character to be adorned on the WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes and [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Merrie Melodies]] franchises,[[note]] (WesternAnimation/{{Bosko|TheTalkInkKid}} fans in the back, please sit down)[[/note]] and an icon of animation. This lovable swine has earned recognition for his cute looks, his [[PorkyPigPronunciation legendary stutter]], and his many escapades with fellow screwball WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck. He has starred in the second most cartoons in the franchises, with 159 appearances in the original theatrical cartoons, second only to WesternAnimation/BugsBunny's 168 short lineup and ahead of WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck's 129 short lineup (although he shared 42 shorts with Daffy).

Porky Pig as a character was instrumental in saving the Creator/WarnerBros cartoon studio from going under--by [[UsefulNotes/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.

While he barely had over a minute of screentime in said short, Porky was an immediate hit with audiences the first real star character the studio had. However, the studio seemed to think that Beans the Cat was going to be their next big character, so they tried a second cartoon, "Gold Diggers of '49", with young director Creator/TexAvery at the directing helms, starring Beans and a heavily redesigned Porky as his sidekick. Once again, the pig won out as the next big thing, thus establishing him as the official mascot of the studio, while Beans and other "Our Gang" deriative ensemble quickly faded away soon after. He even replaced Bosko's farewell to the audience at the end of the proper Looney Tunes series and immortalized "Th-th-th-th-th-that's all, Folks!", even to this day.

However, Porky's popularity was not to last--for another star stole his thunder two years later, in one of Porky's most beloved cartoons: WesternAnimation/PorkysDuckHunt. The star in question was a crazy darnfool WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck.

Around the late 30's, Porky would start becoming a more fleshed out character, especially in the hands of Creator/BobClampett, who made him a more peppy, youthful individual who frequently went on adventures across the world, resulting in some very interesting trips, especially his journey to the home of the fabled Do-Do bird in "WesternAnimation/PorkyInWackyland". Creator/FrankTashlin would also make several shorts with Porky, portraying him as an innocent every-man type personality.

While Daffy foreshadowed Porky's downfall in popularity, when WesternAnimation/BugsBunny arrived in 1940, it became clear that Porky's days as a major star were coming to an end. Fortunately, he still managed to appear in plenty of his own shorts, and eventually became the tagalong of WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck, starring classics like "WesternAnimation/RobinHoodDaffy" and "[[WesternAnimation/DuckDodgersInTheTwentyFourthAndAHalfCentury Duck Dodgers]]". He's currently appearing in ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow'', so at least he's getting a ''bit'' of work.

Here's a bit of interesting trivia for you: there are only THREE (or depending on how you feel about ["WesternAnimation/PorkysHareHunt" and "WesternAnimation/DumbPatrol", five) of the original theatrical cartoons that have starred Porky Pig and WesternAnimation/BugsBunny together  "WesternAnimation/ACornyConcerto", "WesternAnimation/PorkyPigsFeat", and ''WesternAnimation/AnyBondsToday''.

On a side note, Creator/HarmanAndIsing had already cooked up their own pig character in the early 30's as a {{Expy}} for their WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse [[CaptainErsatz wannabe]] Foxy, called "Piggy", although this character was just another non-descript run of the mill Mickey Mouse clone, with nothing in common with Porky.

Joe Doughtery (a man with a real stutter) was his original voice. He was quickly taken over by Creator/MelBlanc. Unlike the rest of his co-stars, who have had various actors voice them depending on the director and producer, Porky has the unparalleled distinction of almost always being voiced by Creator/BobBergen, and has been for decades.

All Merrie Melodies cartoons up to "Nothing But The Tooth" and color Looney Tunes ("My Favorite Duck" to "Little Orphan Airedale") were syndicated to TV through a.a.p. (Associated Artists Productions). The black-and-white Looney Tunes ("Golddigers Of '49" to "Porky's Cafe") were part of the Sunset/Guild package. All others were either shown on network TV (''The Bugs Bunny Show'' or ''The Porky Pig Show'') or syndicated through the ''Porky Pig And Friends'' package.

!!Tropes R-re-r-rel-re-re-rel-re-re-pertaining to the Character:
* AlliterativeName: As with many of Warner Bros.' animated characters including Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck.
* ArtEvolution: He was slimmed waaaaaaay down after [[UsefulNotes/LooneyTunesInTheThirties the Thirties]].
* BadassAdorable: Porky's not really the fighting type, but on rare occasions where push comes to shove, he can and ''will'' fight back. "Porky's Poultry Plant" is one occasion where Porky not only doesn't cower in fear, but actually takes the initiative to save his hens from a flock of vultures--by chasing them down in an airplane, equipped with machine guns! And he ''wins''. "Little Beau Porky" is another shining hour, where Porky singlehandedly and successfully defends his French Foreign Legion post from Ali Mode and his thieves. "Porky the Gob" has him singlehandedly defending his battleship from an enemy submarine.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Generally a nice guy and has a long fuse, but set that temper off, and you better get clear. "The Ducksters" is the clearest example: even before he wins his prize money, Porky is enraged enough to be ready to punch out Daffy when he is threatened and when Porky does win, he immediately buys out the radio company and gets his sweet revenge with all the sadism he suffered now being lashed out in return.
* BigEater: In his early appearances.
* BrattyHalfPint: Porky's nephew in "WesternAnimation/PorkysNaughtyNephew". He constantly messes with his uncle for kicks, such as swatting him with a toy shovel (and unwittingly smacking him with a real shovel), pretending to drown in shallow water and then laughing at Porky when he falls for his trick, and then dumping a truckload of sand on top of him. That said, he ''does'' help his uncle win a swimming race by tricking him into thinking his toy sailboat is a shark fin and then reveals his charade after he won--or rather, tries to, as it turns out to the horror of both of them that there really ''was'' a shark in the water.
* BreakoutCharacter: Porky barely had any screen time and a small role in "I Haven't Got A Hat", and was meant to be a sidekick to Beans, but his likable StraightMan role and distinct voice made it clear who the real star was.
* BurningWithAnger: In "My Favorite Duck".
* ButtMonkey: Porky wound up as this often, especially in his later cartoons. This got toned down as his co stars started to gain their own luckless streak. He played TheFool when paired with Sylvester and became Daffy Duck's HyperCompetentSidekick after the former evolved into a luckless SmallNameBigEgo. In comparison to these two, Porky generally took very few lumps in his later years. Until ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow'' and ''WesternAnimation/WabbitALooneyTunesProduction'' where he's shows signs of this again.
* CatchPhrase: "Tha-th-th-tha-th-th...[[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunesBackInAction go home, folks]]."
* TheComicallySerious: Specially when he interacts with Daffy.
* CrazyPrepared: Along with a fishing licence and a dog licence, he also has a licence to sell hair tonic to bald eagles in Omaha, Nebraska and a licence to use Daffy Duck as a motor.
* CriminalDoppelganger: Killer, in "Porky's Double Trouble".
* DeadpanSnarker: Especially when paired with Daffy.
* 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 "WesternAnimation/PorkyPigsFeat" 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. In the 1960's, he only appeared in three more shorts in the classic era. Even into the 21st Century, his screentime is severely trumped by the other characters. Animator Mike Fontanelli (who works for Creator/WarnerBros) claims that Porky's current downplaying is a result of an unexplained dislike of the character by many Warner Bros. executives.
* DependingOnTheWriter
** Though often placed as TheEveryman of the franchise, many shorts placed Porky with some distinctive traits, ranging anywhere from a rather naive and somewhat doormat-ish figure to a neurotic and occasionally violent tempered fuddy duddy (since both extremes were often provoked by his co stars, which persona was used usually depended how sympathetic they wanted them to be in comparison, especially with Daffy).
** In the 1930s shorts, Porky Pig appeared variously as a young child or as a grown-up.
* {{Determinator}}: In "Duck Soup To Nuts", he uses a pail to bail out ''an entire pond'' in pursuit of Daffy.
* EarlyInstallmentCharacterDesignDifference:
** Those of you who are used to watching his 40's and 50's cartoons may be quite surprised to see how different Porky was in his 30's cartoons, where he was a little kid, as well as morbidly obese in his early appearances. In ''WesternAnimation/WabbitALooneyTunesProduction'' he's noticeably a bit tubbier, similar to his original design from 1935.
** 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.
* TheEveryman: In contrast to his more infamously ScrewySquirrel co-stars Bugs and Daffy, Porky's an everyday average Joe sort of character. This ultimately came to bite him, as he became increasingly perceived as "the dull one" by comparison.
* TheFinickyOne: Certain cartoons, particularly in his later years, portray him more like this, as a way to make him funnier but still evoke his original status as TheEveryman.
* TheFool: When paired with Sylvester in Chuck Jones' shorts.
* FreudianTrio: {{The Spock}} Porky Pig is a sensible and intelligent straight man but despite being mild-mannered, he will often lose his cool if provoked or irritated. He doesn't really plan on creating mischief, unlike like Bugs and Daffy.
* GrumpyBear: DependingOnTheWriter, Porky can sometimes be rather curmudgeonly and sarcastic, and even prone to acts of extreme violence to get peace and civility. Granted how justified he is in this behavior varies ([[OnlySaneMan especially given the]] [[ScrewySquirrel people he is]] [[EscalatingWar usually paired against]]).
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: He wears an open vest and a bow tie, but is otherwise naked.
* HeroAntagonist: As Daffy became more and more the star of the series, Porky started to take on this role in their rivalry. This is particularly evident in shorts where he is an authority figure who is just trying to stop Daffy causing trouble (eg. "Daffy Doodles", Riff Raffy Daffy"). Depending on the level of Daffy's lunacy however, there's sometimes a shade of HeWhoFightsMonsters.
* HypercompetentSidekick: To WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck in some of Chuck Jones' later shorts (somewhat in contrast to his other appearances, especially [[TheFool alongside Sylvester by the same director]]).
* InnOfNoReturn: "Claws for Alarm", part of the Porky & Sylvester horror trinity, involves them visiting a run-down inn that's infested with murderous mice, who try their hardest to kill any visitors.
* MotorMouth: In his early cartoons, where his stutter was played up considerably.
* NoRespectGuy: A RunningGag in his cartoons is how little respect just about everybody gives him.
* OnlySaneMan: Especially whenever alongside Daffy.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: By both Bugs and Daffy.
* PieEyed: In his black-and-white shorts.
* PorkyPigPronunciation: His characteristic and iconic stutter makes him the TropeNamer.
* PrecisionFStrike: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8Q4IxITJZ4 Says "son of a bitch"]] after hammering his thumb in a short clip not intended for general audiences.
--> "Betcha thought I was gonna say son of a bitch didn't ya? Heh heh."
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: More so in his early appearances.
* RunningGag: Anytime he stumb-b-b-b, uh, stumb-b-b-b, er, stumb-b-b-b...has trouble with a word and uses similar word (or phrase) instead.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Sensitive Guy to Daffy's Manly Man.
* ShoutOut: In "Porky In Egypt", the camels nervous breakdown was inspired by the film ''The Lost Patrol''. In the same scene, the camel references Rudyard Kipling's poem "Boots". The scene where he's bathing in an oasis mirage has the camel imitate Hugh Herbert's laugh.
* TheSmartGuy: As a secondary character, this is usually his prominent trait. It's especially prominent in his many, many stints as Daffy's sidekick, where he tends to be the smarter, saner member of the duo and thus is exempt from the slapstick.
* SpeciesSurname: Just like the other two big stars of the Looney Tunes, Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck, he follows this theme be being called Porky Pig.
* StealthPun: There are a number of shorts where he's a police officer. Think about that for a second...
* TheStraightMan: While Porky was the first Warner Bros. character to actually have a distinctive personality, he was concieved and usually portrayed as a meek straight man, which made him a rather inflexible lead character for the directors. They usually had to rely on secondary characters to make his cartoons truly interesting, which eventually led to Porky becoming a secondary character himself once characters like WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck became the headlining star of the studio.
* ThatsAllFolks: [[strike: TropeNamer]] TropeCodifier, as [[WesternAnimation/BoskoTheTalkInkKid Bosko]] is technically the TropeNamer, since he said the lines first.
* {{Tritagonist}}: Ever since WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck and WesternAnimation/BugsBunny showed up.
* TooDumbToLive: In the Porky/Sylvester "horror trinity" of "Scaredy Cat", "Claws For Alarm" and "Jumpin' Jupiter", Porky's status as TheStraightMan is amped up to the point that he refuses to believe anything weird or dangerous is going on. This actually gets increasingly creepier; in "Scaredy Cat", he is forced to admit that Sylvester was right and Sylvester saves him ([[YankTheDogsChain only to be knocked out by one last mouse whilst Porky's thanking him]]), but in "Claws for Alarm", he's never clued into the danger but manages to get away safely (TheStinger that some of the killer mice have stowed away with them besides). Finally, in "Jumpin' Jupiter", he winds up getting himself and Sylvester stranded on an alien planet because he never figured out he was being abducted by an alien.
* TookALevelInBadass: There are rare occasions where Porky will man up and fight his foe toe to toe, even managing to come out on top. "Porky's Poultry Plant" and "Little Beau Porky" are two such examples.
* TookALevelInJerkass: From the early 40's to early 50's (see GrumpyBear above). This may be one of the reasons that directors eventually saw him as TheScrappy.
* VagueAge: In his earlier cartoons, Porky's age was all over the place. Some cartoons, including his debut, ''I Haven't Got A Hat'', depict him as a child. In others, he's an adult (one of which, he even had an adult daughter). Later cartoons seemed to settle on him being an adult.
* VillainOfTheWeek: The early Porky shorts occasionally had oneshot bad guys for Porky to deal with, such as the Streamline Train driver from "Porky's Railroad", the vultures from "Porky's Poultry Plant", Ali Mode from "Little Beau Porky", Sub Zero from "Porky the Gob", and so on.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Daffy.
* VocalEvolution: 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.
* WeirdnessMagnet: Seems to attract all sorts of demented characters, much to his dismay.
