Kevin Anthony "Moochie" Corcoran (June 10, 1949 – October 6, 2015) 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. Corcoran's mother, the former Kathleen McKenney (1917–1972), was, like her husband, a native of Quincy, Massachusetts.

Biography

Moochie
Entre 1956 et 1960, Kevin Corcoran a joué plusieurs rôles similaires ayant à chaque fois le surnom de « Moochie ». Il est d'abord apparu dans trois feuilletons du Mickey Mouse Club mais n'a jamais été un des mouseketeers officiels. Il débute dans Adventure in Dairyland, où il joue Moochie McCandless, le fils d'un fermier. Ensuite il interprète Montgomery (Moochie) O'Hara dans deux épisodes de The Adventures of Spin and Marty, The Further Adventures of Spin and Marty et The New Adventures of Spin and Marty.

Il n'est apparu aux côtés de mouseketeers qu'une seule fois, lors de l'émission spéciale des quatre ans du Mickey Mouse Club en 1957, portant un T-shirt avec le nom Moochie et harcelant Walt Disney au sujet de la série Zorro.

Mais il poursuit son rôle de Moochie dans plusieurs films dont Montgomery "Moochie" Daniels dans Quelle vie de chien ! (1959), Moochie Morgan dans Moochie of the Little League (1959) puis Moochie of Pop Warner Football (1960). Pour Steven Watts, il est l'un des produits de système Disney d'intégration, utilisation d'un même élément dans l'ensemble des divisions de la société Disney, la télévision, les films, la musique à l'instar de Fess Parker ou Annette Funicello.


Autres rôles
Il a eu plusieurs autres rôles importants. Parmi ces rôles, Kevin Corcoran et Tommy Kirk ont joué des frères dans cinq films : Fidèle Vagabond, Quelle vie de chien !, Les Robinsons des mers du Sud, Bon voyage ! et Sam l'intrépide, la suite du Fidèle Vagabond.

Sa carrière pour les projets Disney s'est arrêtée en 1964 après qu'il a tourné Les Pas du tigre, mais sa carrière d'acteur s'est poursuivie.

A woman named Karen (Susan Strasberg), who is suffering from a growing tumor on her neck, enters a hospital in San Francisco. After a series of X-rays, the doctors begin to think it is a living creature: a fetus being born inside the tumor. Eerie and grisly occurrences begin; the tumorous growth perceives itself – himself – to be under attack as a result of the X-rays used to ascertain its nature, which are starting to stunt and deform its development. The growth is actually the old Native American shaman, Misquamacus; he is reincarnating himself through the young woman to exact his revenge on white men who invaded North America and exterminated its native peoples. A second Native American shaman is contacted and hired to help fight the reincarnating medicine man, but the kind of spirits he can summon and control appear to be too weak to match his opponent's abilities.

The film begins as if it were a stage play presented by Mother Goose (and her wise-cracking, talking goose companion, Sylvester) about two nursery rhyme characters, Mary, Mary Quite Contrary and Tom the Piper's Son, who are about to be married. At the same time, the miserly and villainous Barnaby is hiring two crooks, Gonzorgo and Rodrigo, to throw Tom into the sea and steal Mary's sheep, thus depriving her of her means of support, and forcing her to marry Barnaby instead. (Mary has just come into a huge inheritance of which she is obviously unaware, but somehow–it is never explained how–Barnaby knows about it and intends to get it for himself.) After bopping Tom on the head with a hammer and tying him in a bag, the two henchmen, dimwitted Gonzorgo and silent Roderigo, pass by a gypsy camp. They decide to sell Tom to the Gypsies instead of drowning him in order to collect a double payment.

Suddenly, the pirates turn around; Father has put up a flag indicating the ship is under quarantine and that there is Black Death aboard. The three men construct a tree house home on the island while the youngest boy Francis (Kevin Corcoran) investigates the wildlife and starts an impressive collection of animals including a young elephant, a capuchin monkey and two Great Danes rescued from the ship which they name Duke and Turk. Mother (Dorothy McGuire) prays to be rescued. The boys, particularly Ernst, also build inventions to provide modern amenities to the family such as drawing water and preserving food.
