Andrews-McMeel Publishing is a newspaper syndicate founded in 1970 by Jim Andrews and John McMeel as the Universal Press Syndicate.

It quickly gained notoriety by picking up a comic on the Yale Times called Bull Tales, drawn by Garry Trudeau, which was retooled into Doonesbury. For decades, Universal Press became known for giving its cartoonists more creative freedom than its competitors, giving way to features like Calvin and Hobbes and The Far Side among others.

In 2009 the syndicate became known as Universal Uclick after it merged with its digital division, and two years later it acquired United Feature Syndicate from Scripps-Howard. In 2017 the Universal Uclick brand was replaced by the Andrews-McMeel Publishing name.
