Brad Anderson is an American cartoonist. He graduated from Brocton Central School in Brocton, New York in 1943. He is best known for creating the comic strip Marmaduke in 1955, which he continues to draw to this day. One of his favorite inclusions in his comics was the old Cave's Meat Market in Brocton, NY. There were several cartoons dedicated to Cave's and to Marmaduke running away from the store with items he had retrieved. He was also involved in the comic strip Grandpa's Boy, which ran from 1955 through 1980. He received the National Cartoonists Society Newspaper Panel Cartoon Award for Marmaduke in 1978.

The repetitive nature of the themes in Marmaduke was recently parodied in the satirical paper The Onion.
