    I'm apparently so young that I didn't know there was another host on Toonami before Steve Blum, but it still sucks that he's gone.

    Damn, that sucks.
    I met him at a con in 2014 and he told me some stories about working on Space Ghost C2C.

    Yeah it was originally hosted by Moltar from Space Ghost.

    It's a shame he's gone. His characters on Space Ghost and Aqua Teen were hilarious.

    I always hoped Moltar would return to Toonami for just one day and host alongside TOM.

    Man, this blows. His Moltar voice was pure awesome-sauce.

    RIP, Mr. Croker.

    He also did a lot of the original animation (The ones that weren't stock animations). I live in Georgia and saw him for many years at the local conventions, recently one just a few months ago. He usually carries around a portfolio of original images from the show to sell.
    Besides Space Ghost, he also did many of the early Adult Swim shows even Sea Lab 2021 and Birdman.

    Btw He was also Zorak, and Steve.
    Nice guy.

    Sorry to lose him at such a young age.

    Toonami did a tribute to Crocker by having Moltar appear at the beginning of the show.

    Well not quite what I wanted but I'll take it. That was a great tribute to Croker. Unfortunately though since I've only been watching One-Punch Man I didn't see it when it aired on TV. I should have known there would be a tribute to him I honestly don't know why I didn't think to tune in.
