The world of animation mourns today as C. Martin Croker, animator and voice-actor, has passed away early Sunday morning at the age of 54. Croker voiced several characters on a number of shows on both Cartoon Network and Adult Swim, most notably Space Ghost: Coast to Coast villains Zorak and Moltar. Some may remember Moltar as the original host of the anime series block Toonami, back when it was on weekdays during the late 90s. While the Hanna-Barbera created villain was eventually replaced, Moltar introduced an entire generation of young viewers to the wonderful world of anime, including Sailor Moon, Tenchi Muyo and Dragon Ball Z. Our condolences to Croker’s family and friends.
