The Porky Pig Show is an American television anthology series hosted by Porky Pig, that was composed of Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies theatrical cartoons made between 1948 and 1964. The series aired on ABC from 1964 to 1967, with 26 half-hour episodes created.

Format[edit]

Each show began with a newly-animated title sequence featuring a theme song by Barbara Cameron, in which Porky welcomes his friends into a barn to dance and watch his show. Following the three cartoons featured on the program (the first one always featuring Porky), a closing sequence played in which Porky's friends say goodbye and promise to return the following week. These opening, closing and bridge sequences were produced in New York by Hal Seeger, was Warner Bros. had shut down their own cartoon studio the previous year.
