In thirty seconds, voice actor Bob Bergen eloquently breaks down one of the most difficult to replicate classic cartoon voices: the stutter of Porky Pig. It’s a clip from the recent documentary I Know That Voice.

Bergen knew Mel Blanc, who perfected the voice of Porky that was originated by Joe Dougherty, so I wonder if Blanc ever actually explained it like this to Bergen, or if this is the result of Bergen’s own research. Either way, it’s an illuminating look at the peculiarities of the voice actor’s craft.
