Kevin Corcoran

Many know KEVIN CORCORAN (1949-2015) best as "Moochie" in the Disney TV series, "The New Adventures of Spin and Marty". I saw him first in family films. He played the adorable kid who loved animals and got into a lot of scrapes.

Old Yeller (1957)
Haven't you seen Old Yeller (1957)? Kevin Corcoran is wonderful as Arlis Coates.

Watch this and then see these other four films.

Swiss Family Robinson (1960) He played the youngest son Francis. This is a delightful film.
Pollyanna (1960) He played the orphan Jimmy Bean, friend to Pollyanna.
Toby Tyler, or Ten Weeks with a Circus (1960) He played the lead role of Toby Tyler, a boy that runs away to join the circus.
The Shaggy Dog (1959) Here, he played one of his many "Moochie" roles.
