Kevin Corcoran was a child actor who was best known for his numerous roles in Disney TV shows and films throughout the late 1950s and early 1960s. One of eight children, many of whom were also child actors, Corcoran began landing uncredited film roles in the mid-1950s. In 1956 he landed his first credited role on the sitcom "December Bride" (CBS, 1954-59), and from there his career began to take off. Between 1957 and 1963 Corcoran appeared in over two-dozen Disney films and TV shows, most notably "Old Yeller" (1957), "The Shaggy Dog" (1959), and "Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color" (ABC, 1957-1963), in which he appeared as a character known only as "Moochie." By the mid-1960s, as Corcoran got older, the acting roles began to dry up. Thus, he turned his attention to college. He studied theatre arts at California State University in Northridge, and after graduating took on a second career in the entertainment business as a first assistant director. Corcoran was the first assistant director on a number of TV shows throughout the '80s and '90s, including "Murder, She Wrote" (CBS, 1984-1996), "Baywatch" (Syndicated, 1989-2001), and "Providence" (NBC, 1999-2002). Then in 2006 Corcoran was honored as a Disney Legend for the years of acting work he did as a child. He made a brief return to acting in 2009 with a small role in the film "It All Starts with Murder!" but sadly, his life was cut short in 2015 when he died from colorectal cancer. Kevin Corcoran was 66.
