Porky's Romance is a 1937 Looney Tunes cartoon that stars Porky Pig and for the first time, Petunia Pig. The cartoon deals with Porky trying to propose to Petunia and him getting rejected by Petunia. He proceeds to try to commit suicide, but ends up in a bizarre dream showing what would happen if he married Petunia.
Porky's Romance is particularly significant in that it is the last cartoon that had Joe Dougherty as the voice of Porky Pig before Mel Blanc got the job and exclusive voice credit contract. Dougherty's uncontrollable stutter had made it extremely difficult for the producers to work with him; such frustrations were evident in the cartoon's production, much of which has Porky either as a silent character or one who only speaks with his face turned away from the view of the audience. (When Blanc took over the Porky role, he maintained the character's stutter, but harnessed it to achieve a greater comedic effect.)
