Robert Cannon (July 16, 1909 in Ohio, USA - June 9, 1964 (aged 54) in Los Angeles, California, USA) was an animator.

Robert 'Bobo' Cannon began his career at Leon Schlesinger Productions in 1934, assisting ace animators Robert Clampett and Chuck Jones. After a two-year apprenticeship, he graduated to full animator. Cannon became an integral part of that anarchic Warner Brothers in-house cartoon outfit, known as 'Termite Terrace' (due to its cramped and austere quarters). In the process, he laboured on such iconic Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies characters as Porky Pig, Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny, and Elmer Fudd. He animated for Tex Avery, Clampett and Jones from 1936 to 1944, after which he became co-founder and a leading light in the innovative United Productions of America (UPA). Unlike at Warners or MGM, UPA allowed him to direct, including cartoons featuring the famous character of Mr. Magoo. Cannon later taught animation at San Fernando Valley State College and was awarded in 1976 with the International Film Society's Winsor McCay Award for Lifetime Achievement.
