From January 10, 1942 until August 1943, he had the title role on The Adventures of Ellery Queen, and from 1943 to 1952, he played Edmond Dant├Ęs in Mutual's version of The Count of Monte Cristo.

Young appeared in a number of Hollywood films, including The Kissing Bandit (1948), starring Frank Sinatra, and three 1951 movies, His Kind of Woman (with Robert Mitchum), Hard, Fast and Beautiful (with Claire Trevor) and The Blue Veil (with Jane Wyman).


He worked frequently in TV. In 1959, in the season-two episode of ABC's Leave It to Beaver, Young played John Bates, the father of series character Gilbert Bates (Stephen Talbot). That same year, he was cast, along with Mary Castle, in the episodes "The Big Gamblers" and "The Confidence Gang" of Rex Allen's syndicated western series, Frontier Doctor.

Other television roles were on The Loretta Young Show, Annie Oakley, Sheriff of Cochise, How to Marry a Millionaire, Perry Mason, M Squad, The Rebel, and Bourbon Street Beat. In 1960, he portrayed the character George McKean in "A Murderer's Return" of the ABC western series, The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp, starring Hugh O'Brian.

Young's last television roles were in 1961 on the ABC/Warner Brothers drama series, The Roaring 20s and on NBC's Tales of Wells Fargo. That same year, his son, Tony Young, starred in the short-lived CBS western, Gunslinger.

Carleton G. Young is sometimes confused with the film actor Carleton Scott Young.


Young has a star at 6733 Hollywood Boulevard in the Radio section of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It was dedicated February 8, 1960.


Young died on July 11, 1971, at St. John's Hospital in Santa Monica, California. He was interred at Inglewood Park Cemetery, in Inglewood, California. He was survived by his wife, a daughter, and two sons.
