In 1945 Moore appeared in the Daffy Duck cartoon Ain't That Ducky. He was so pleased with his caricature he offered to add his voice free of charge on the condition that the animators draw him with a little more hair.

Personal life

He was married twice – first to actress Emma Littlefield from 1902 until her death on June 25, 1934, and then to Shirley Paige in 1942. The marriage was not announced for a year and a half. At the time of the announcement, Moore was 66 years old and Paige was 22. They remained married until Victor Moore's death 20 years later.

He had three children with his first wife: Victor, Jr. (1910), Ora (1919), and Robert (1921).

Moore died of a heart attack on July 23, 1962. He was 86 years old. He is interred at Cypress Hills Cemetery in Brooklyn, New York, United States.

Legacy

The Victor Moore Bus Terminal and business arcade at the New York City Subway's Roosevelt Avenue / 74th Street station in Jackson Heights, Queens, served by the 7 E F M R trains and the Q33, Q47, and Q49 buses, was named for him when it opened in 1941. In 2005, the arcade was replaced by an Intermodal Transportation Complex serving the same subway and bus lines.
