I've got a book of his Hanna Barbara designs (the exceedingly out of print "Alex Toth: By Design", not to brag about it too much.)

One of my favorite monsters in was a stone age mummy wrapped in stitched skins instead of bandages from the "Mightor" cartoon. Now THAT is a monster I'd like to stat up someday. :D

Superfriends and Space Ghost were two of my favorites when I was a kid. The images you posted here definitely have a vibe I like.
