Boag, Wally

Boag, Wally (1920-2011)  Longtime comedian from the Golden Horseshoe Revue at Disneyland, which put him into the Guinness Book of World Records for the most number of performances of a show. He was most known for creating characters out of balloons and for spitting out a seemingly inexhaustible number of his “teeth” (beans) after being hit in the mouth. He opened the show at Disneyland in 1955, took time out to get the same show started at the Diamond Horseshoe in Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World in 1971, then returned to Disneyland for the remainder of his career. His last performance before his retirement was on January 28, 1982. Boag also had brief roles in The Absent-Minded Professor, Son of Flubber, and The Love Bug. He was named a Disney Legend in 1995.
