In Australia he has acted in TV shows including Spyforce, Division 4, The Young Doctors, All Saints, and The Restless Years.

When comedian Rod Hull and his Emu puppet character left The Super Flying Fun Show and Australia, a duplicate of Emu was made so the character could continue on the show as Marty and Emu, much to Hull's annoyance, Marty Morton took over Hull's co-hosting position with Marilyn Mayo in Australia. Not long after, Marty became a regular on the Super Flying Fun Show.

In 2003 he was a guest on Channel 4 documentary on Rod Hull, Rod Hull: A Bird in the Hand .[1]

He has entertained with his 'sidekicks' Emu, Camel, Jake the Peg and Talkin' Horse.
