How to Succeed in Business
Without Really Trying
Morse made his Broadway debut as the eager Barnaby opposite in Ruth Gordon in Thornton Wilder's The Matchmaker which served as the basis for Hello, Dolly. He later reprised the role in the film version with Shirley Booth. He continued to make positive impressions in Say, Darling and Take Me Along before starring in How to Succeed. He later played another eager young man in So Long, 174th Street, a musical based on Carl Reiner's memoir of his days as an aspiring actor.
Morse played in many films, but never achieved Hollywood stardom. He specialized in farcical comedies such as Honeymoon Hotel, The Loved One, A Guide for the Married Man, Where Were You When the Lights Went Out?, and The Boatniks.

His career sported some oddball assignments such as playing the vampirish Grampa Munster in a 1995 TV-movie Here Come the Munsters, the voice of Santa Claus in Teen Titans GO!, the character Howler on Pound Puppies, and Jack Frost in an animated musical TV special.
