    ...and have just discovered that Wally's co-star, Betty Taylor, has also died - the day after Wally. What sad news!

    Re: Wally Boag Has Passed Away

    I have a dvd somewhere that is dedicated to the Golden Horseshoe in DL. It has footage of old shows and lots of interviews with past CMs who worked/performed there, including quite a bit of video of Wally Boag performing his act at the Horseshoe. He was quite a guy, and quite an entertainer. I feel like he never really got the credit he deserved. Maybe with his passing Disney will honor him or recognize him, which would bring him more recognition among all the Disney fans and fanatics out there.

    If we can dream it, we can do it
