And now a word from StatManDan.
The world of animation got a little darker today, as unconfirmed reports of C. Martin Croker’s death has begun to circulate around the internet. Mr. Croker’s name might not a ring a bell to many, as his voice acting and animation career was light compared to most portfolios, he was mostly known as the voices of Zorak and Moltar on Cartoon Network’s first original series, Space Ghost Coast to Coast.
Beyond the realm of Space Ghost, Mr. Croker was also the original host (as the character Moltar) on Cartoon Network’s programming block, Toonami, along with various roles on Adult Swim’s The Brak Show and Dr. Weird on Aqua Teen Hunger Force. And beyond voice acting, Mr. Croker was involved with the behind the scenes process of many of the shows he voiced on.
Currently there is no official news or announcement about his death, beyond word of mouth and an updated Wikipedia article. Considering he wasn’t hugely known to the general public, I see no reason for anyone to start a fake death rumor. According to what little information is available, Mr. Croker passed away at home.
Rest In Peace, C. Martin Croker.
