Adult Swim Streams all most of Space Ghost for Free

AASC GITDTVVia Adult Swim: Adult Swim is streaming most of Space Ghost Coast to Coast. Not everything is up, but a lot of it is there for you to watch all night long for free. If there's a better way to pay tribute to the works of one C. Martin Croker, I have yet to see it.

Episodes like "Knifin' Around," "Kentucky Nightmare," "Bobcat," and even "Baffler Meal" await you. Classic rock will be forever changed. For those not in the know, Adult Swim used to be a cutting-edge animation block on Sunday nights. The showcase is more live-action now - the low-budget weirdness is really, truly the kind of thing you want to put on TV when nobody is watching but the people who are going to love it - and this sort of thing is kind of everywhere and nowhere in the streaming era. You may also be surprised to hear "Squidbillies" is still on, because I sure as heck was.

RIP C. Martin Croker

RIP C. Martin Crocker - Williams Street, Zorak, Moltar, More

AASC GITDTVVia Adult Swim's Twitter: RIP C. Martin Croker. He was 54.

You recognize his name because it was on the end credits of an amazing piece of culture, Space Ghost: From Coast to Coast as a piece of the future (way back in the 1990s) wrapped in the skin of the past. Mr. Croker was an animator and voice on Perfect Hair Forever, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and other Williams Street and Adult Swim programs. He may be best known for his voice work as Zorak and Moltar. Episodes of Space Ghost are hard to find in an official capacity, but the channel aired a few last night - and also, you are on the internet and know how Google works. You should check it out. I particularly recommend "Kentucky Nightmare" and "Yorke and Bjšrk in: Knifin' Around." Along with Mr. Show, this is one of those things from the 1990s that, I hope, sincerely, you watch when the chance comes up.
