Sad news, but reading that makes me smile.

Drawing for Hanna Barbera in the 1960s and 1970s, Toth designed characters for adventure cartoons "Jonny Quest" and "The Herculoids"

Rest in peace.

Alex Toth gave us not just Space Ghost, but the hilarity mine that is Sealab. Rest in peace, Mr. Toth!

It is a sad story though and the majority of the current crop of cartoonists just don't cut it.
