In February 2011, Hinton starred in the theater production The Last Laugh by playwright Bill Svanoe and directed by Emmy-winner Blake Bradford and starring Joan Darling.


In 1988, Hinton appeared in the first episode, "Road Ranger," of the short-lived NBC series The Highwayman, starring Sam J. Jones.

After Daniel Boone, Hinton acted only occasionally, with appearances as Hal Parker in "This Will Really Kill You" (1970), of NBC's The Bold Ones: The New Doctors and as Tom Woods in "Legacy of Fear" (1971) of ABC's Owen Marshall: Counselor at Law.

He co-starred as Simon Graham in the two-part 1968 episode, "Boomerang, Dog of Many Talents" of NBC's Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color, with Darren McGavin, Patricia Crowley, and Russ Conway.


He appeared in 110 Daniel Boone episodes beginning with the September 24, 1964, premiere, "Ken-Tuck-E," a reference to Kentucky, the setting of the series. Patricia Blair played his mother, Rebecca Boone, and Veronica Cartwright played his sister, Jemima Boone. Ed Ames and Dallas McKennon co-starred as the Cherokee tribesman Mingo and innkeeper Cincinnatus, respectively. Hinton's last Daniel Boone roles, filmed when he was 12, were in the 1969–70 season: "A Very Small Rifle," "The Road to Freedom," "The Printing Press," "Target Boone," "Hannah Comes Home," and "Sunshine Patriots."


Hinton's acting debut at the age of six months old was in the arms of Jayne Mansfield in the TV show "Playhouse 90".

One day his mother dropped him off at Twentieth Century Fox (dressed in knee high socks and lederhosen) to audition for a role in The Sound of Music, and the boy unintentionally got lost. He wandered into the wrong line of kids; by the time his mother found him, Darby had turned in his lederhosen for a coonskin cap to play Fess Parker's son Israel, on Daniel Boone, for the next six years.

Hinton has two sisters who were child actors, Daryn Hinton and Darcy Hinton Cook. Darby Hinton was also a godson of actor Charlton Heston and former Arkansas Lieutenant Governor Winthrop Paul Rockefeller, son of former Arkansas Governor Winthrop Rockefeller.
