Toth is best known for character designs on Space Ghost, SeaLab 2020, Johnny Quest and SuperFriends. His pen defined Hanna-Barbara cartoons of the 60s and 70s, and lives on in Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim programming bloc, with Space Ghost: Coast to Coast and SeaLab 2021.

PvP’s Scott Kurtz reports Alex Toth died at the drawing table. It is a fitting tribute to his own enduring talent that he continued to create until his final breath.

Rest in Peace, Mr. Toth. You’ll be missed.
