Kevin Corcoran, 66, a former Disney child actor who played the irrepressible Moochie in the “Spin and Marty” serials on The Mickey Mouse Club and went on to play roles in films such as Old Yeller, died Tuesday at a hospital in Burbank, Calif. The cause was colorectal cancer, said his wife, Laura.

He was in several non-Disney productions, including guest spots on TV series such as Wagon Train, The Littlest Hobo, and My Three Sons with one of his favorite actors, Fred MacMurray.

In his late teens, he made a sudden decision to quit acting.

He went on to a career behind the camera. And unlike many child actors, he had a quiet life with a long marriage. “I enjoy entertaining people and doing good work,” he told the San Francisco Chronicle. “I’m glad my life didn’t have to be a spectacle.”
