Frank Zander (b. 1942) is a German singer, actor, and voice artist who dubbed Hoots the Owl on Sesamstrasse, the German co-production of Sesame Street.

Zander has been an active recording artist in the German pop music scene since the 1970s. Some of his material was geared towards children, such as singing with hamster characters or interacting with puppets, and he wrote and performed in spoken word children's cassettes. Dubbing assignments include the voice of Asterix in two eighties redubs, as well as singing or deep-voiced speaking roles (the butterfly in The Last Unicorn, the dog Rocks in Look Who's Talking Now, the Goanna in Ferngully: The Last Rainforest, and Powertool in the German animated feature The Fearless Four). Zander appeared in the film Neus vom Wixxer, on an episode of Tatort, and as himself on various chat and variety programs.
