Among Cisar's more frequent roles was from 1960 to 1963 as Sgt. Theodore Mooney in thirty-one episodes of CBS's Dennis the Menace. Oddly, series co-star Gale Gordon took the name "Theodore Mooney" and added the middle initial "J." for his character,Theodore J. Mooney, a tough-minded banker on Lucille Ball's second sitcom, The Lucy Show.
