Toonders father Marten Toonder (16 Nov 1879, Warffum - 24 May 1965, Leiden ) was a sea captain on The Holland America Line. He brought home comics from America for his two sons, Jan Gerhard and Marten. When the father was absent and the mother Trijntje Huizinga (2 March 1886, Uithuizen - 5 February 1970, Leiden)left the kids alone, Marten and Jan Gerhard could develop a vivid imagination.

His book, "A Case for Astrology" with A. West was translated and published in Dutch as "Het astrologisch argument" in 1971. He also appeared several times on TV, with Helene Koppejan in January 1976. He died on 25 August 1992.
