Otto Soglow (December 23, 1900-April 3, 1975) was an American cartoonist best known for his comic strip The Little King.
Born in Yorkville, Manhattan, Soglow studied with John Sloan at the Art Students League of New York. He published his first cartoon in 1919 and throughout the 1920s he published them in numerous magazines. Most notably he was a frequent contributor to The New Yorker, where his character The Little King first appeared in 1931.

William Randolph Hearst lured Soglow away for his King Features Syndicate, but contractual obligations to The New Yorker prevented The Little King from appearing immediately, so Soglow produced a knock-off strip called The Ambassador from 1933 to 1934. The Little King debuted on September 9, 1934 and ran until Soglow's death in 1975.
Soglow was a co-founder of the National Cartoonists Society and served as president for the 1953-1954 term. He received their Reuben Award in 1966 for the strip, and their Elzie Segar Award in 1972.
