(CNS) Posted Saturday June 4, 2011 – 10am

The man hired by Walt Disney to perform as Pecos Bill in Disneyland’s Golden Horseshoe Revue, and who went on to headline nearly 40,000 stage shows, died Friday. Wally Boag was 90, it was reported today.

Boag’s feat was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest running stage production in show business, Disney officials said.

“The world’s stage has experienced a great loss in the passing of Disney legend Wally Boag,” said George Kalodridis, president of Disneyland Resort. “Wally was instrumental in the development of live entertainment during the early years of both Disneyland Park and the Walt Disney World Resort.”

Boag also was the voice of Jose in the Enchanted Tiki Room at the theme park. Wallace Vincent Boag was born Sept. 13, 1920 in Portland, Ore. Disney Legend Wally Boag Dies At Age 90.
