Pierrot Co., Ltd. (株式会社ぴえろ), also known as Studio Pierrot, is a Japanese animation studio founded in May 1979 by former employees of Tatsunoko Production and Mushi Production.

It was responsible for the 1988 adaptation of Fujio Akatsuka's Osomatsu-kun, as well as the latter two adaptations of The Genius Bakabon.

In 2015, it became the animation studio behind a new media-mix re-imagining of -kun, with the production of Osomatsu-san (2015).
