John A. Derevlany (born October 3, 1964) is a writer, director, and performer who most recently co-created the TV series "Legends of Chima" for LEGO. He also wrote every episode of the series and the "Legends of Chima" 4D movie playing at Legoland theme parks and Legoland Discovery Centers. Derevlany is also known for playing "Crackers the Corporate Crime Fighting Chicken" in Michael Moore's TV Nation. In addition, he created the preschool dance and movement show Animal Jam for Jim Henson Productions and the Discovery Channel, wrote many episodes of cartoon The Angry Beavers, and co-founded the heavy-metal ukulele band Uke Til U Puke.

Derevlany also wrote and developed 26 episodes of Gerald McBoing Boing based on the 1951 cartoon by Dr. Seuss. He wrote and story-edited the series Wayside, and has also wrote for the 2009 Doki special. Derevlany is the creator of the life sized board game CulverLand, which is a temporary artwork located in Culver City, California.

Endangered Species, developed and story edited by Derevlany, was nominated in 2016 for three awards at the 4th Canadian Screen Awards, including Best Animated Program or Series, Best Directing in an Animated Program or Series, and Best Writing in an Animated Program or Series.

Derevlany started his career as a journalist, working for newspapers and magazines, including The Village Voice, National Lampoon, and Seventeen. While working at the Hoboken Reporter Newspaper in Hoboken, New Jersey, he published his first book at the age of 23. "Yuppies Invade My House at Dinnertime" was hailed by The New York Times Book Review as "a vivid picture of a community in transition... It is that rare thing: a light book about a big issue."
