C. Martin Croker Passes Away at 54
« on: September 18, 2016, 09:37:42 PM »


Quote from: PopCulture Now
Famously known for providing the voices of Zorak and Moltar, C. Martin Croker, passed away early Sunday morning. Details aren't for certain, but his loss was felt immediately by friends and colleagues. He was 54.

In Space Ghost: Coast to Coast as well as Steve and Dr. Weird on Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Croker was a talented animator in his own right who worked on the bumpers for Cartoon Network. Adult Swim sent out a tweet confirming his passing as well as goodbye to one of their oldest friends.


Condolences to his friends and family.

Wait, he was only 54? I thought he was older, for some reason...

I was too young to watch Space Ghost Coast to Coast when it was airing (probably saw the CN bumpers he animated without realizing it), but I've been reading posts from folks who are more familiar with that show and Mr. Croker's work, and...man.

Well if you wanted to see Space Ghost Coast-to-Coast now, Adult Swim has recently started streaming almost every episode of the show on their website and you can watch them for free, no sign up or fees required. This article mentions the ones they couldn't put up for streaming.

Like this says, there would not have been an Adult Swim without Clay. Space Ghost Coast to Coast was ahead of it's time, yet it was perfect at the time it came out. It was experimental. Cartoon Network had never done anything like this before and it was absolutely brilliant. I absolutely loved that show so much. A lot of that is attributed to him. I've met him too. He was such a nice person and a funny guy. I have a sketch he drew for me in my sketchbook and I think I'm going to get it framed.
