Short-lived sidekick to Porky Pig. Gabby was a short-tempered, irritable, and ultimately rather unlikeable character who was fairly quickly dropped. Voiced by writer Cal Howard.
- Porky and Gabby (Iwerks, 1937)
- Porky’s Badtime Story (Clampett, 1937) debut of character
- Get Rich Quick Porky (Clampett, 1937)
Beck and Friedwald believe that elements of Gabby ended up in the character of Daffy, a theory buttressed by the fact that Porky’s Badtime Story was remade by Clampett as Tick Tock Tuckered (1944) with Daffy replacing Gabby.
