That's All Folks! Warner Brothers Issue

The Postal Service issued a 34-cent "That's All Folks!" commemorative stamp in Beverly Hills, California, on October 1, 2001. The stamp, designed and illustrated by Ed Wleczyk of Los Angeles, California, went on sale nationwide October 2, 2001. The stamp was produced in souvenir sheets of ten.

The first true star of the Looney Tunes cartoons, Porky Pig is popular with audiences of all ages and has appeared in more than 160 productions. Porky Pig experienced several changes in his early years, appearing as child, father, and young suitor in succeeding cartoons. Later he became a more consistent personality with a gentle stammer, wide- eyed appearance, and boyish nature. Eventually, Porky Pig was redesigned as a more adult-looking character and cast as a wry foil for the silly Daffy Duck. Porky Pig, already a famous star, was guaranteed immortality when he was chosen to deliver his famous phrase "That's all Folks!" at the end of the Looney Tunes cartoons. Porky Pig completes the Postal Service's Looney Tunes Series.

Avery Dennison printed 275 million stamps in the gravure process.
