Toth Tuesday

For sheer drawing ability, no one was ever better than Alex Toth, in my opinion.
Still, I gotta wonder what the H&B animators thought of these incredibly complex character layouts Alex had come up with.
Did he really expect them to animate all this motion?
Come to think of it, I've never seen this cartoon, and maybe they did animate all this parry and thrusting.
In any event, it makes for a gorgeous layout.

Toth was a genius, and the cartoons he worked on never lived up to his genius, although those early 60s action cartoons were still watchable.

I even saw a super dynamic and stylized storyboad he did for SUPERFRIENDS, and it was amazing. Superfirends was NEVER amazing.
