Walter S. Burr (born June 2, 1924) also credited as Wally Burr and Walter Burr is an American voice actor and director.

As the voice director for the original Generation 1 cartoon and The Transformers: The Movie, Burr has had many stories told of him by actors on the show, who universally recall his perfectionist recording sessions as exhausting, voice-straining experiences, to the point that Michael Bell jokingly implicated the strain involved as the cause of Orson Welles's death. He has also filled in roles for regular voice actors who were unavailable for taping.

He voice directed several other cartoons during the 1980s, such as G.I. Joe, Inspector Gadget, Spider-Man and some voices he has done include The Atom on Superfriends, Emmett Benton on Jem and the Holograms, Huang Zhong in Dynasty Warriors, and Rock in Soulcalibur. He has also filled in roles for regular voice actors who were, at the time, unavailable for the recording session.
