Winston Singleton Sharples (1er mars 1909 – 3 avril 1978) est un compositeur américain connu pour son travail avec des courts sujets animés, en particulier ceux créés par le département d'animation de Paramount Pictures. Dans sa carrière de 35 ans, Sharples réalise plus de 700 dessins animés pour Paramount et Famous Studios, et compose de la musique pour deux films de Frank Buck, Wild Cargo (1934) et Fang and Claw (1935).
En 1931, Sharples épousa Daisy Shackley, hôtesse chanteuse de l'hôtel Kimball de WBZ Radio à Springfield. En 1932, ils eurent un fils, Winston Sharples, Jr., qui travaillait avec son père comme éditeur de musique et devint lui-même directeur musical sur The Mighty Hercules. Ils eurent aussi une fille, Daisy Sharples. Après la mort de sa première femme en 1937, il remaria Carmela Parrino, une musicienne accomplie elle-même, et eut un autre fils Michael Sharples.
