Irv Wyner (September 4, 1904 – November 8, 2002) was a background artist who 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 1957 (where his last credited work was on the one-shot cartoon Three Little Bops), when he was briefly succeeded by Boris Gorelick, and later by Tom O'Loughlin.
