Irv Wyner (4 September 1904 – 8 November 2002) was a background artist. He was most associated with the theatrical Looney Tunes animated shorts in Friz Freleng's unit. His first credited work was on the 1952 animated short "Gift Wrapped", a Sylvester and Tweety cartoon, and he stayed with Freleng's unit until his last credited work, the one-shot cartoon "Three Little Bops" in 1957, when he was briefly succeeded by Boris Gorelick, and later by Tom O'Loughlin.

In the early 1960s, Irv did work for Disney on Disneyland, for Walter Lantz, and later, in the 1970s, for Chuck Jones' Tower 12 for such specials as The Phantom Tollbooth, Horton Hears a Who!, and Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, among others.
