Trivia
Bob Clark stated in the 2006 DVD commentary that he used his real life High School and College experience as the basis for various characters, and compares himself closest to Pee Wee, Billy and Tommy (the brains); others characters were based in real life friends or people he went to school and college with.

First of two "Porky's" movies directed by Bob Clark who directed the picture's sequel Porky's II: The Next Day (1983) the following year. Clark did not want to direct a third film in the series so he did not direct Porky's 3: Revenge (1985).

Goofs
The marching band at the end has Mellophones. These instruments were invented around 1966 and didn't become popular for another 10 years or so. In 1954 the band would have been playing French horns.

This movie was set in 1954, but in numerous street scenes more modern "cobrahead" streetlight fixtures are seen. That type of streetlight was first introduced in 1957.
