Porky Pig is an animated cartoon character from the Looney Tunes series of cartoons. Introduced in the 1935 short I Haven't Got a Hat, he is the longest recurring character in the series, and the animators (particularly Bob Clampett) created many critically acclaimed shorts starring the character. Even after he was supplanted by later characters such as Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny, Porky continued to be popular with moviegoers and, more importantly, the Warner Bros. cartoon 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!"
