HAPPY 80th BIRTHDAY, ALEX TOTH!
Happy birthday to the late legendary comic artist and animation character designer ALEX TOTH! In honor of TOTH's 80th birthday, I'm posting two of his model sheets for the 1967 HANNA-BARBERA production, SHAZZAN. As you know, TOTH designed just about all of the HANNA-BARBERA super-hero shows during the 1960s and 1970s, including SPACE GHOST, MIGHTOR, YOUNG SAMSON, MOBY DICK, SUPERFRIENDS, BLUE FALCON and more. I'm also posting the original art to a 1967 SHAZZAN puzzle from Western Printing. TOTH didn't do the puzzle art, but it is based on his sensational character designs!
