Eberhard Prüter (January 21, 1945 - October 28, 2014) was a German actor and voice actor. He was best known for providing the voice of Squidward Tentacles on the German dub of Nickelodeon animated series SpongeBob SquarePants. He had also been a cast member of Dieter Hallervorden's comedy sketch show Die Didi Show and has appeared in dramas such as Tatort and Polizeiruf 110.

The German voice of Zazu in 'The Lion King' was originally done by Uwe Paulsen. However, Prüter re-recorded the part and became the character's official voice actor, although Paulsen can be heard in the radio play and the soundtrack version of 'I Just Can't Wait to be King'.

Prüter died on October 28, 2014 in Berlin at the age of 69. He is survived by his children and grandchildren.
