Joseph Tapley "Joe" Dougherty (November 4, 1898 - April 19, 1978) was an American voice actor who provided the original voice of the Warner Bros. animation character, Porky Pig, starting with the character's debut in I Haven't Got a Hat in 1935 until Porky's Romance in 1937. After that, Mel Blanc took over the role and voiced Porky for 52 years. Dougherty spoke with a natural stutter which became one of the character's trademarks; Dougherty's inability to control his stutter was a factor in the part being recast.

Dougherty was born in Missouri. Before becoming an actor, Dougherty attended medical school at the University of Nebraska, where he was a member of the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity. He died in Los Angeles, California.


Dougherty died on April 19, 1978 from a heart attack. He was 79 years old.
