Warner Bros. comedy shorts with George O'Hanlon. He co-starred in the early television comedy Life with Elizabeth (1953–55), with Betty White.

For several years in the late 1950s he hosted a daily children's program opposite Willy the Wolf (a muppet-like adult size character) on KTTV Channel 11 in Los Angeles.

Moore played supporting roles in several Jerry Lewis films, including The Big Mouth and The Patsy. He made his feature film debut in Lewis' Cinderfella in 1960 and was the university president in 1963's The Nutty Professor. He was also in the 1967 teen film Catalina Caper, which later appeared as an "experiment" in a 1990 episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000.
