One of seven children of MGM studio policeman Bill Corcoran, Kevin Corcoran was five years old when he followed the lead of his older siblings, Bill Jr., Noreen, Donna, and Hugh, by becoming an actor. Corcoran's first film appearance, in the company of his sisters, Noreen and Donna, was as one of Quaker farmer Ernest Borgnine's children in Violent Saturday. In 1957, he was featured in Adventures in Dairyland, a serialized component of Walt Disney's daily TVer The Mickey Mouse Club. Corcoran's character name was Moochie, a tag that stuck when he was signed to a Disney contract. One of the busiest child actors of the late '50s, Corcoran was co-starred in such Disney theatrical features as Old Yeller (1957), The Shaggy Dog (1960), Pollyanna (1960), and Savage Sam (1963). He also played the title role in 1960's Toby Tyler, and was top-billed in the Disney TV projects Moochie of the Little League (1959), Moochie of Pop Warner Football (1961), and Johnny Shiloh (1963). After outgrowing his natural cuteness, Corcoran found roles harder to come by, and called it quits after a minor role in Blue (1968). Upon attaining adulthood, Corcoran returned to Disney as an associate producer, working on such films as Superdad (1977) and Pete's Dragon (1977). Kevin Corcoran's brother, Brian, and sister, Kerry, also showed up in several films and TV programs of the 1950s and 1960s.After retiring from acting, Corcoran moved behind the camera, beginning as an associate producer on Return from Witch Mountain in 1978. He continued his Disney association by producing fare Herbie Goes Bananas and on the '80s TV show Herbie, the Love Bug. Corcoran also worked extensively as an assistant director on series such as Scarecrow and Mrs. King, Baywatch, Murder, She Wrote and Providence. In later year, he turned to more mature fare, producing The Shield and Sons of Anarchy. He was honored as a Disney Legend in 2006. Corcoran died in 2015, at age 66.
