Pigs

Porky - Childhood nickname of Sylvester "Porky" Brockway (Donald Keeler), a plump youngster living in the farm community of Calverton, near Capital City on the family drama JEFF'S COLLIE/CBS/1954-57. Porky shared a friendship with youngster Jeff Miller (Tommy Rettig) who owned a dog named Lassie.

TRIVIA NOTE: Donald Keeler's real name was Joey Vieira; he got his stage name from his aunt, dancer Ruby Keeler.

Porky was also the college nickname of lawyer Alonzo Sparks (James Avery) on the sitcom SPARKS/UPN/1996-97. When Alonzo attended law school, he had difficulty standing up in class and talking to his intimidating law professor. He earned the nickname of Porky (after Porky Pig) because he stuttered and stammered.
