The voice actor and animator is perhaps best known for his roles as Zorak and Moltar on Space Ghost: Coast to Coast—both roles he reprised for its various spinoffs. A pivotal part of Cartoon Network’s rebranding and refocusing on making late night programming for more mature audiences, Croker had continued to lend his talents to such programs as Aqua Teen Hunger Force voicing Dr. Weird and Steve.
Adult Swim has planned a brief tribute for Croker. In honor of his passing, Cartoon Network will be airing the first episode of Space Ghost: Coast to Coast late Sunday night at 12:30am.
