I have such fond memories of Wally (and the rest of the cast at DL's Golden Horseshoe Review. There will never be anyone like him.

One of our fondest memories of visiting Disneyland in the 1960's and 70's was seeing Wally Boag performing at the Golden Horseshoe Revue as'' Pecos Bill.''......So happy to see the great memories alive on YouTube

As a child my family flew us from Mexico to Disneyland three times. During those visits, I believe I saw the show about 10 times. When I was 10 or 11, my family let us all go anywhere in the park, as long as we checked in with them every few hours. While my siblings went on rides, I went to see the show three times in a row. In my college years, I saw the show many more times, both as a park guest and later as an employee. I was fortunate to make friends with Wally, Fulton and Betty. Many times they would invite me up to their dressing rooms to talk, laugh and learn. One New Year's Eve, Betty even let me stay in her dressing room when the park closed; so that I could be in the park when it re-opened (I had just arrived from spending Christmas with my family in Mexico and was not able to get tickets to the evening's festivities). Now I am an adult and an entertainer (comedy-magician). I realized the other day, that my stage persona is an amalgam of all three of their personalities. I have been lucky enough to meet and work with some incredible performers in my lifetime, but none have had as much of an impact on my life and my performing style as Wally, Fulton and Betty. A year before Wally passed away; I was able to locate his phone number. I trembled with anticipation as I waited for Wally to answer the phone. Chatting with him brought back so many fond memories of this wonderful man and his cohorts who created a true entertainment gem which was unparalleled in the history.
Thank you, Wally for all the love and laughter.

Wally, you were a man to be respected. No comic today can match your talent. I may not have met you, but your antics will forever light my life. Go with God, and make him laugh as you did us.

Wally you were ageless. I only saw you perform once but it was amazing. I wish I had been able to see it again. We will all miss you.

Wally you were ageless. Remember the show from when I was a kid and now my children have enjoyed your antics in the clips on the Disneyland Treasures discs and of course as Jose the parrot. Hard to believe all the things you did. Thank you

To the Boag Family,

I have so many wonderful memories of going to Disneyland. One of the best ones was going to the Golden Horseshoe Revue. It was one of my favorite things to do when we went to the Park. I could watch that show over and over, and never got tired of it. When we would bring visiting relatives, we would always take them to see the show. Wally Boag was such a talented performer! He will be missed by us all.

He was the Chaplin of Disneyland and one of the greatest live stage entertainers of the 20th century.

I visited Disneyland for the first time back in 1977 or so. It was hot and sunny, and I wandered by the Golden Horseshoe with two friends, and saw that a show was about to start. As I recall, it was a full house but we were told to wait for a moment. Suddenly we were ushered into the theatre and right into the stage-left box seats. It felt a bit embarrassing to be sitting right there on the stage. I felt even more embarrassed when Wally starting popping seeds from his mouth, aiming them directly at us! I still can't explain why it was so hilarious, but it was an afternoon I will never forget. When I tell people about Wally, I always have to explain that it might not sound funny when I explain what Wally did, but we were all (the whole audience as well as myself and my two friends) roaring with laughter! It was magical! I am so glad that I got the chance to meet him and shake his hand when he made an appearance at the Egyptian Theatre a few years ago...Memories like these are treasures.

Wally was a gem, I'll mis him but not his laughter.
