Bob Weber, Sr. (born June 26, 1934), is an American cartoonist, best known for his Moose and Molly comic strip, distributed by King Features Syndicate.

Weber was born and raised in South Baltimore. His career as a cartoonist and illustrator moved into high gear in 1959, when he contributed to The Saturday Evening Post and the syndicated Laff-a-Day panels.[1][2]

Relocating to Connecticut, he became cartoonist Dick Cavalli's assistant on Winthrop. In 1965, he launched his own strip, which began September 20, 1965, as Moose, retitled Moose Miller six years later.[3] It was renamed Moose and Molly (aka Moose & Molly) in 1998.[1][3][4] After peaking with 200 newspapers, it eventually dropped to 75 papers.

Weber lives in Westport, Connecticut, which he refers to as "Westpork".[2]

Weber's son, cartoonist Bob Weber, Jr., reaches a readership of 30 million with his Slylock Fox & Comics for Kids puzzle feature. He also co-created the short-lived Oh, Brother! strip.
