Petunia Pig is an animated cartoon character in the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of cartoons from Warner Bros.

Description

She looks much like her boyfriend, Porky Pig, except that she wears a dress and has braided black hair (which she originally did not have).

History

Petunia was introduced by animator Frank Tashlin in the 1937 short "Porky's Romance". The film is a parody of a 1932 Walt Disney cartoon called "Mickey's Nightmare". Whereas Mickey Mouse marries his longtime girlfriend Minnie in that film, Porky's overtures toward Petunia bring him only the scornful laughter of his porcine paramour. Tashlin quickly adopted Petunia as a regular member of Porky's entourage and featured her in two more cartoons: "The Case of the Stuttering Pig" and "Porky's Double Trouble", both in 1937. Voice actors Bernice Hansen, June Foray, Mary Kay Bergman, and Grey DeLisle each performed Petunia's voice in various shorts. In addition, she appeared in the 1972 special Daffy Duck and Porky Pig Meet the Groovie Goolies, voiced by Jane Webb. Petunia was meant to have a cameo with Porky in the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit but the "Acme's Funeral" scene was deleted.[1] Her latest appearance is in The Looney Tunes Show, debuting in the Season Two episode, "Here Comes the Pig", voiced by Katy Mixon. Petunia was intended to appear earlier in the series with a different appearance and Grey DeLisle returning to the role, but ultimately, she only made two appearances late in Season Two with a much different appearance, and spoke in only one episode, despite appearing prominently in early merchandising and promotional material, indicating behind-the-scenes politics saw her debut put off until the eleventh hour.
