Kevin Anthony “Moochie” Corcoran, born on June 10, 1949 and died October 6, 2015, Kevin was an American director, producer, and former child actor.

He appeared in numerous Disney projects between 1957 and 1963, frequently as an irrepressible character with the nickname Moochie.

One of eight children, most of whom did some acting in the late 1950s to early 1960s, Corcoran was the sibling whose work is best remembered.

His father, William “Bill” Corcoran, Sr. (1905–1958), was a police officer and then director of maintenance at MGM Studios.

Kevin’s mother, the former Kathleen McKenney (1917–1972), was, like her husband, a native of Quincy, Massachusetts.

Kevin graduated from California State University, Northridge with a degree in theatre arts.

After this he returned to Disney, this time working behind the camera as an assistant director and producer.

His credits from this era include Superdad (1973), The Island at the Top of the World (1974) and Pete’s Dragon (1977).

Appropriately, he also worked on The New Mickey Mouse Club (1977).

Kevin was an associate producer on Treasure of Matecumbe (1976), on the sequel Return from Witch Mountain (1978) and on The North Avenue Irregulars (1979).

He co-produced Herbie Goes Bananas (1980), and was the producer of the comedy television series Zorro and Son (1983).

Kevin’s more recent contributions to Disney include commentaries and interviews on such Disney DVD releases as The Shaggy Dog and Pollyanna.

He has also served as first assistant director on several non-Disney television series, including Scarecrow and Mrs. King, Quantum Leap, Profiler and Karen Sisco; and produced a number of projects.

Over the course of his tenure on the Angela Lansbury series Murder She Wrote, Kevin was credited as first assistant director, assistant producer, and director.

Kevin Corcoran passed away on October 6, 2015.
