Tyler James Jordan (born June 8, 1971), known by his pseudonym TjsWorld2011, is an American animator, screenwriter, electronic musician, and composer who first gained prominence during the 1990s and 2000s with his animated television series PuffRuff School (1994-2004, inspired by character designs of a short film that would later evolve into the Cartoon Network series The Powerpuff Girls) and Tj’s World (1999-present, based upon his own original character designs), which have aired on the Fox television network and on Nickelodeon, respectively.

He has also written and directed various feature films throughout his career, including but not limited to Operation BLUE (1994), The Hub (1995), Revolt Squad (1998), Project Zero (2000), Team POWER (2004), Heroball (2008), ROBLOX: The Movie (2010), Uploaded (2012), Planet Chasers (2014), Reality Check (2015), and Ready Player One (2016, an adaptation of the novel of the same name by Ernest Cline), as well as feature length adaptations of both PuffRuff School and Tj's World (released in 2001 and 2005, respectively).

He was one of the forerunners of the puff subgenre of film, where each character is drawn in the minimalist style of the design of the eponymous protagonists of The Powerpuff Girls. He also founded the electronic music project Downsize in 2009 with Ntpockets, which has released three albums as of 2017.
