Paul Hull Husted (June 25, 1914 - September 5, 1995 Van Nuys, California), better known as "Paul Julian," was an American artist and designer, best known for voicing The Road Runner for director Chuck Jones and drawing backgrounds (often suburban ones) for Friz Freleng's Tweety & Sylvester series.

He first did the "beep, beep" noise in the Warner Bros. parking lot as a polite means of telling people to get out of his way. Paul recorded several versions of this, and sound-engineer Treg Brown sped some of them up and looped them together. These recordings were ultimately used for the Wile E. Coyote & Roadrunner cartoons. However, Paul was uncredited for his work, as Mel Blanc's contract with WB stipulated that he was the only credited Looney Tunes voice actor.
