Alex Toth began his career in comic strips and comic books, producing a significant amount of material in the late Golden Age. The bulk of his work for DC, however, was in the non-superhero genres that gained prominence in the 1950s. Though his final, somewhat rare contribution to the superhero genre was in 1964, he continued to submit occasional work to DC's mystery and romance lines until 1971.
By the 60s, though, he had mostly moved to animation, where he inarguably gained his greatest influence. He is best known today for his animation designs for Hanna-Barbera throughout the 1960s and 1970s. His work with Iwao Takamoto includes Superfriends, Jonny Quest and Space Ghost. Toth's work has been resurrected in the late-night, adult-themed spinoffs on Cartoon Network: Space Ghost: Coast to Coast and Sealab 2021.
