Ralph Eggleston (born October 18, 1965) is an American animator, art director, storyboard artist and production designer at Pixar Animation Studios.

Born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Eggleston began his career at Kroyer Films working on projects such as Computer Warriors and FernGully: The Last Rainforest. He was hired by Pixar in 1992 during the development of Toy Story, his work on which won him the Annie Award for Best Art Direction.

In the late 90's he was set to make his director debut by making an animated film adaptation of Bluebeard for Warner Bros. Animation called Haunted Holiday, but production was canceled after the box-office failure of Quest for Camelot.

Eggleston also directed the Oscar-winning Pixar short film For the Birds.
