Lucien Littlefield (August 16, 1895, San Antonio, Texas – June 4, 1960, Hollywood, California) was an American actor in the silent film era. He later made numerous cameo appearances on television series.

His role of the doctor in The Cat and the Canary (1927) is one of his more notable performances. He appeared with Laurel and Hardy, first as an eccentric professor in Dirty Work, and finally as a vet in their classic feature Sons of the Desert, both made in 1933. He also played Mary Pickford's father in My Best Girl in 1927. Other roles include Tumbleweeds, with William S. Hart, Ruggles of Red Gap, with Charles Laughton, and Johnny Come Lately, with James Cagney.

He played an eccentric inventor in an early Adventures of Superman episode called "The Runaway Robot". Littlefield played many character roles in other TV shows of the 1950s, such as Blondie, Lassie, Dragnet and Peter Gunn.

He died of natural causes in 1960, and was buried in Glendale's Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery.
