Who Created the Cartoon Character Porky Pig

The character was designed by animator Bob Clampett and introduced in the short “I Haven’t Got a Hat” which was released on March 2, 1935.

The unmistakable voice of Porky Pig was originally done by Joe Dougherty, who was a genuine stutterer offscreen, before Mel Blanc took over as the swine’s voicebox.

Today Bob Bergen is usually the voice behind Porky’s “Th-th-th-that’s all, folks!”

Even after Porky Pig was supplanted by later characters, he continued to be popular with audiences worldwide.
