Gordon Moorehead was the fictional detective in the television show Moorehead Rides Again, played by George Moorehead. The show was of a popular detective on the Vice City Broadcasting System during the 1940s and 1950s. The show is credited for helping to "glamorize life round here (Vice City) and helped make Vice Beach the popular destination it is today". The show, entitled Moorehead Rides Again was making a comeback on the radios of Vice City in 1984 (the setting of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. This, 32 years after it was cancelled (suggesting the show was cancelled in 1952).

The co-star of Moorehead Rides Again and Gordon Moorehead's assistant/side-kick is Molly Mownstein. Moorehead treats Molly as a woman with little intelligence, often slapping her. The show, Moorehead Rides Again, seems to emphasise the problem of sexism, with Michaela Carapadis (a feminist in Vice City), known to be against the show.

Moorehead Rides Again was described: "With its non-stop action, pithy writing and believable characters Moorehead seems like a show made only yesterday". The fate of Moorehead Rides Again, it's comeback and George Moorehead (actor portraying Gordon Moorehead) himself are unknown, as neither Moorehead nor the series were mentioned in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City or in any other Grand Theft Auto game.
