Probably his best known role was as Harold Lampson, the henpecked husband and incompetent lawyer in the 1965 comedy movie How to Murder Your Wife.
In 1952, he starred on the short-lived NBC sitcom Doc Corkle, which was broadcast for only three weeks.
In the 1954-1955 television season, Mayhoff appeared as a construction contractor and former football player trying to thrust his son "Junior", played by Gil Stratton, to success on the American football gridiron at their common alma mater. Rochelle Hudson played the wife and mother in the CBS situation comedy series entitled That's My Boy, based on a 1951 Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis film of the same name.
