Millôr Fernandes (August 16, 1923 – March 27, 2012) was a Brazilian writer, journalist, cartoonist, humorist and playwright. Born as Milton Viola Fernandes, his birth was registered in May 27, 1924; the handwriting on his birth certificate made the name Milton being read as "Millôr", which he adopted as his official name.
In 1956, Millôr shared with Saul Steinberg the first prize at the Buenos Aires International Caricature Exhibition, and in 1957 he had a one-man exhibition in Rio de Janeiro's Museum of Modern Art.
