Jay Stephens (born March 22, 1971) is a Canadian cartoonist. He is best known as the creator of Discovery Kids's animated television series Tutenstein and Cartoon Network's The Secret Saturdays. Stephens has also worked on an animation project JetCat which aired on Nickelodeon's KaBlam! for the series' third and final seasons, with only four shorts produced. Before creating "Tutenstein", Jay created several comics, including "Land of Nod", "Oddville!", and "Chick & Dee" (for Chickadee magazine). He currently lives in Guelph, Ontario. Tutenstein was actually based on a character he used for the JetCat comics. On June 28, 2010, Stephens launched a comic strip called "Oh, Brother!" with Slylock Fox creator Bob Weber, Jr. Oh, Brother ended in 2011. He is good friends with stop-motion animators Chris Lavis and Maciek Szczerbowski, where they give thanks to him for their award-winning short, Madame Tutli-Putli.
