Alan Burnett (born 1950) is an American television writer-producer particularly associated with Warner Bros. Animation, Hanna-Barbera Productions, DC Comics and Walt Disney television animation. He has had a hand in virtually every DC animated project since the waning years of the Super Friends. Burnett's contributions for Disney were largely a part of the 1990s Disney Afternoon, where he was attached to the Disney's Adventures of the Gummi Bears and various projects set in the Scrooge McDuck universe. Because of his primary focus on televised animation, he has occasionally been involved in film projects related to a parent television program. He is a graduate of the University of Florida and has an MFA in film production from the University of Southern California.


Burnett has won five Emmys for his work in television as well as three Annie Awards, two Humanitas Awards, and an Animation Writer of the Year Award from the Writers Guild of America.[1]


He has worked on many television shows, from The Smurfs and DC animated series "Superfriends and The Super Power Team" and Batman: The Animated Series, to the Batman Beyond animated series and The Batman. Burnett also wrote a segment in Batman: Gotham Knight (a series of 6 animated short films bridging the gap between the movies Batman Begins and The Dark Knight).

Since 2009, Burnett has been co-producing and supervising scripts for all the DTV productions from Warner Bros. Animation. He also wrote "Green Lantern: First Flight" and co-wrote "Green Lantern: Emerald Knights" and "Scooby-Doo! Abracadabra-Doo."
