Patrick "Pat" McHale (born November 17, 1983 in New Jersey) is an American writer, a storyboard artist, an animator, and independent filmmaker, best known for being a former writer and creative director on the animated series Adventure Time for Cartoon Network, which he contributed to during its first five seasons. McHale recently created the mini-series Over the Garden Wall. He voiced Hectorgon during the final episodes of Gravity Falls.

Patrick McHale graduated from the California Institute of the Arts in 2006 with a BFA in Character Animation. He began his professional career at Cartoon Network Studios in 2007, writing and storyboarding on The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack, helping to create 10 episodes in total. The one-shot character Punsie McKale was inspired by and modeled after McHale.

After leaving Flapjack, he joined fellow CalArts alum and Flapjack storyboard artist Pendleton Ward to help develop Ward's Adventure Time short into an animated series. Once the show got picked up, McHale stayed on board as the show's creative director up until the show's second season.
