Challenge of the Super Friends Storyboards by Alex Toth

Check out these super-cool storyboards for episode 9 of Challenge of the Super Friends, "Revenge on Gorilla City" by the master, Alex Toth. Toth's little thumbnails were so beautiful, so full of life, that sometimes I think you could just print them all and release them as comic books, full stop.
I love how much energy and character Toth managed to put into the faces of Giganta and Grodd, and how simply rendered Black Manta's chrome dome is. They are a pure pleasure to look at.

Gorgeous, gorgeous stuff.

It's also amazing that in all the years he worked on the show, no set of animators every bothered to capture this artistry on film.:-(

Hey, we mentioned this one on the latest Power Records episode (plug)!

I agree. These are gorgeous, but then anything from Alex Toth would be!

Makes me feel like Dali said when he saw some pencil tests at Disney one time:

"Why don't you just leave it like that?"
