Porky Pig

Top of Toon Town

“Th-Tha-That’s all folks!” With those immortal words, Porky Pig stammered his way to legendary movie status. The first true cartoon star from the Warner Bros. stable, Porky first appeared in a 1935 Friz Freleng cartoon as a school boy trying to recite a poem. Under the direction of Tex Avery, Frank Tashlin, Chuck Jones and Bob Clampett, the character was refined, redesigned and placed in some seriously funny scenarios. Whether hunting a do-do bird or being a space cadet companion to Duck Dodgers in the 24½ century — timid little Porky Pig became the biggest ham in Hollywood history.
