Cláudio Paiva (Carangola, June 6, 1945) is a cartoonist and one of the most renowned writers of Brazilian humor programs.

He remained on the team until 1988, when he began to dedicate himself to scripts for TV Pirata; Hubert and Reinaldo would remain in the newspaper and in the Casseta & Planeta group. After the success of TV Pirata, Paiva did the final writing for the programs Sai de Baixo and A Grande Família.
