Peter Livingston Hastings (born January 9, 1960) is an American animation writer. On Animaniacs, he wrote a majority of the Pinky and the Brain cartoons and later moved onto the spin-off.

However, when Kids' WB! suggested making changes to the show, Hastings was an outspoken critic of that move, even describing the network as being "a little weak"[1]. One of his last story ideas for the show he created before he quit was "You'll Never Eat Food Pellets in This Town Again", which described his feelings toward the changes.

Hastings would return to Warner Bros. in 2003 to work on ¡Mucha Lucha!

Hastings also appears as himself in the beginning of "Yes, Always".

He will soon make his feature film debut as the director for the upcoming film DogMan, based on the book by Dav Pilkey set for release in January 2025.
