Growing up in the 1970’s, almost all of my favorite cartoons from the Fantastic Four to the Super Friends had one thing in common… Alex Toth. It wasn’t until much later in life that I fully appreciated the gifted touch that he had and the magic that he brought to these characters on screen, forming the blueprint of these comic book creations in action for an entire generation.
It wasn’t just the superheroes that Toth worked on. He was also responsible for Space Ghost, the Herculoids, Birdman and the Galaxy Trio, Dino Boy in the Lost Valley, not to mention his body of work in print (still celebrated to this day). But for me, I will always get a warm goow from just looking at his character designs for the Super Friends.
