Trivia

  • Despite sharks and other fish not having vocal cords and as such not being able to produce any sounds, Porpoise is clearly heard growling, snarling, and even roaring in his scenes. However, this may have been added for dramatic effect. Some of his roars co-incidentally sounded similar to Tanner the MGM lion from the openings of the 1930s-1950s MGM cartoons.
  • Though Porpoise was created exclusively for the Chuck Jones-era, his creation was very likely to be inspired by Flappy the coelacanth from the Hanna-Barbera era Tom and Jerry short "Cat Fishin'".
