Mark Zaslove is an American television and film writer, prominent for animation and entertainment for general audiences. Throughout his career he has served as a writer, producer, voice director, story editor, and live-action director, among other things.

Zaslove started out in animation screenwriting in the mid 1980s, cutting his teeth on the Disney movies: The Fox and the Hound, The Black Cauldron, The Little Mermaid, and Oliver and Company. By the late 1980s, he had become a staff writer for Walt Disney Television Animation. He also served as an episode writer and story editor for The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, in which his personal writing style of subtle humor and underlying intelligence became apparent.

In 1989, in order to fill a major gap in Disney's production schedule, he co-developed TaleSpin with fellow staff writer Jymn Magon. They both oversaw the expedited production of the show, which went from a rough draft concept to completed episodes in less than a year. Zaslove eventually left Disney around 1992, however, he later wrote for The Book of Pooh in the 2000s.
