"Charlie Chaplin" (Greek script: "Τσάρλυ Τσάπλιν") was the Greek entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1978, performed in Greek by Tania Tsanaklidou.

The song was performed fifteenth on the night (following Monaco's Caline & Olivier Toussaint with "Les jardins de Monaco" and preceding Denmark's Mabel with "Boom Boom"). At the close of voting, it had received 66 points, placing 8th in a field of 20.

The song is in praise of Charlie Chaplin, with Tsanaklidou describing his comic appearance (she was dressed in a similar style for her performance) and wishing that there were more of him.

It was succeeded as Greek representative at the 1979 Contest by Elpida with "Sokrati".
