Charlie Anderson (19 August 1903 – 31 January 1985) was an Australian rules footballer who played with Carlton, South Melbourne, Richmond and Footscray in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

In a five season career, Anderson played with four different clubs.[2] The Gippsland recruit made his only appearance for Carlton in the opening round of the 1924 VFL season.[3] He then joined South Melbourne and kicked the only two goals of his career in his first game at his new club, against Essendon.[3] It was one of eight games he played that year and he added another three in 1926.[3] Later in the 1926 season he crossed to Richmond, where he played just three games.[3] He finished his career at Footscray, who were competing in just their third VFL season.
