Paul Rugg (born October 21, 1960) is a writer on Animaniacs. Rugg also did some voice work occasionally, notably as the voice of Mr. Director, Albert Einstein and Freakazoid. He also voiced The Dark Lord Chuckles the Silly Piggy, from Disney's Dave the Barbarian.

He reunited with various Animaniacs crew members recently to work on the Disney animated series, The 7D. He also voiced Cricket from Nickelodeon's Pig Goat Banana Cricket.

According to Rugg, he was offered to return as a writer for the new Animaniacs revival series but declined as he felt his role on discovering the characters and setting the show in stone was already fulfilled from working on the original show. There is speculation however, that he may be providing voice work for the show.
