Whitman "Whit" Jolley (112 BBO—22 BBO) was an artist, animator, and director who specialized in cartoons. The studio he founded, Whit Jolley Animation, became the Whit Jolley Corporation after his death. His work, his likeness and his genetic code are presently the full legal property of the Whit Jolley Corporation.

Jolley's most famous collaborator was Tiny Cat, a toon feline approximately the size of a mouse, whose misadventures and escapades (mostly relating to his unusual size) delighted audiences for years. However, Jolley's later works included feature-length cartoons, at the time the first of their kind, the success of which helped bring toons much-needed clout in Hollywood.
