What I loved the most about Johnny Quest was that, for the period and the genre -- commercial television cartoons, Johhny Quest was quite an
achievement. There were more animators involved in Johnny Quest than were previously involved in other "made for tv cartoons". There was a
noticeable difference when one watched this show compared to others of the period. Keep in mind that we are not talking about computerized animation
But what I liked the best about Johnny Quest was the superb work by comic book artist, animator Alex Toth.. Alex Toth was an artist who
started working in the comic book genre's "Golden Age" and was very influential throughout his career. Alex worked for, pretty well, every major
comic book company as well as the noted Warren Publications "Eerie" and "Creepy" magazines and, if I am not mistaken, "Vampirella". Of course,
Alex seemed to have really made an impact in the "made for tv" cartoons working on, amongst others, the popular "Super-Friends" series.
Every comic book affectionado and artist can appreciate Alex Toth's beautiful work. His sense of layout and design and, especially, his background
art made cartoons like Johnny Quest popular and appreciated decades after their original release.
