Porky Pig - is probably the most famous of several of the Looney Tune characters who display speech-language disabilities. Created by Warner Bros., Porky Pig debuted in "I Haven't Got A Hat," directed by Fritz Freleng in 1935. In1937, Mel Blanc debuted his character voices. The Sunsite archives has a SoundMachine (22K) clip of That's all folks.. Gerald Johnson, Ph.D. published an article in the Journal of Fluency Disorders in 1987 entitled A Clinical Study of Porky Pig Cartoons, JFD, 12 (1987), 235-238. In 1991, the National Stuttering Project picketed Warner Bros. Studios carrying signs that read "Make Friends, Don't Make Fun of Kids Who Stutter." Although Warner Bros. at that time turned down NSP's request to use Porky Pig as an advocate for children who stutter, they did give the Stuttering Foundation of America a $12,000 grant to underwrite the costs of a 1994 Conference for School Clinicians in the treatment of childhood stuttering. Through persistence, particularly of NSP member Ira Zimmerman, in 1997, Warner Brothers "Top of the Tune Squad" developed a poster, - Everyone's Unique and Th-th-that's Good Folks! - using various Warner Bros. cartoon characters including Porky Pig in a media campaign to stop the bullying of all kinds of children. Both the poster and the picture of Porky Pig on this page are provided with permission from Warner Brothers.
Piglet in Winnie the Pooh, "is a small timid little piglet. He is Pooh's best friend. He is kind and friendly and is known to be scared of everything. Piglet seems to stutter when he is scared." (www.geocities.com/foreverpooh123/characters.html)
