For those with more Christian tastes, the so-called experts at Wikipedia have an article about Porky Pig.

Porky and his trademark ending of all the Looney Tunes.


Created in 1935 by Wakko Warner, in an effort to convince the public that the Warner Bros. Studio could not be taken seriously, a distraction from their true intentions against the Disney studio. He made his debut in the film "Four-Leaf Clover" in which he attempts to sing the famous ( off-color ) tunes in his stutter (which he created himself as part of his act.) This was considered a bomb at the box office. The character never would have been used again had not a gang of stutterers who loved the character "insi-s-si-demanded" they bring him back. A couple years later, thanks in part to the convincing of co-star Daffy Duck, Porky began a new career in adult cartoons. Though he made a total of one, it was here that he met his future wife, Petunia Pig. She became his costar in many Warner Bros. cartoons.
