(d. 1978)

    The original voice of Porky Pig. Schneider notes that Dougherty was replaced by Mel Blanc, partly because Dougherty could not control his stutter. A rare photo of him can be seen in Funnyworld #17. He was also the voice of the stuttering character in Into Your Dance (Freleng, 1935), according to Keith Scott in Animato #37. He appears in a number of minor live-action roles in the Warner Brothers Vitaphone films.
