Porky Pig is an Academy Award-nominated animated cartoon character in the Warner Bros. Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of cartoons. He was the first character created by the studio to draw audiences based on his star power, and the animators created many critically acclaimed shorts using the fat little pig. The character was designed by animator Bob Clampett and introduced in the short "I Haven't Got a Hat" (first released on March 2, 1935), directed by Friz Freleng. Even after he was supplanted by later characters, Porky continued to be popular with moviegoers and, more importantly, the Warner's directors, who recast him in numerous everyman and sidekick roles. He is known for his signature line at the end of each short, "Th-th-th-that's all folks!" The slogan had also been used at the end of almost every Looney Tunes cartoon.
