    Re: Fond Memories of the Golden Horseshoe Revue



    Howdy Pards,

    Course, back in them days, us fellers, well...we didn't notice them fancy Golden Horseshoe Can Can girls much...

    Why...no...no...we was just there to have an ice cold Pepsi in the air conditionin' don't ya know?

    Still, I reckon it is true that...once that music started playin'...and all that color started splashin' up there in ways some of us fellers never did see much...well, it was kinda hard not to notice 'em...

    The truth is those beautiful ladies put a whole lotta energy, talent, and skills into those performances...made 'em truly delightful...especially for us fellers.

    Yessir, I reckon mor'n one husband over the years had his arm hit hard by his wife durin' those ol' Golden Horseshoe Revue shows... Truth is, my arm's kinda sore just rememberin'...

    Adios for now. Talk to ya on down the trail.

    Howdy sbk1234,

    Well, I reckon I always wanted to...but my Mom, and later my wife, wouldn't let me set too close to the stage...they were always tellin' me it would hurt my eyes...



    So...we were always about half way back or up in the balcony somewheres...and I still got hit in the arm just for payin' attention...

    And, speakin' of not payin' attention...pay no attention to all those white things on the piano there...those of us who saw the show know that those are just Wally Boag's teeth...

    "Oh, that's good. No, that's bad."

    Fulton Burley:
    "I was walking down the street when I met a man I hadn't seen in years. How've you been?" I said.
    "I got married," he said.
    "Oh, that's good," I said.
    "No, that's bad," he said. "She's pretty ugly."
    "Oh, that's bad," I said.
    "No, that's good," he said. "She has quite a bit of money."
    "Oh, that's good," I said.
    "No, that's bad," he said. "She won't give me a dime of it."
    "Oh, that's bad," I said.
    "No, that's good," he said. "She built a grand mansion filled with servants."
    "Oh, that's good," I said.
    "No, that's bad," he said. "It burned down last week."
    "Oh, that's bad," I said.
    "No, that's good," he said. "She was in it."

    Howdy HiddenMickeyBook,

    Ahhh...tis a good memory you've got then! Either that...or you wrote that one down like I shoulda all those years ago.

    So many memories come floodin' back they do...Remember Wally always invitin' a little one...the cutest he could find...up on stage to get one of those famous Boagaloons?

    I found this particular picture while horsin' around over there in a favorite spot of mine...the davelandweb.com...by the way if any of you folks ain't visited that site yet, let me encourage ya to go take a look. You're gonna find more wonderful memories over there than you could possibly ever imagine. I think you'll find that ol' Dave has put his heart and soul into rememberin' the Happiest Place on Earth...and Walt Disney World too for that matter...but, gosh, don't take my word for it...go take a look for yourself. It's like havin' your own personal Disneyland time machine it is...

    Anyways, here's Wally, makin' folks happy...just like he always did up there on that Golden Horseshoe Revue stage... Yep, there's his hat, hangin' in it's usual spot on that longhorn steer horn...

    Adios for now. Talk to ya on down the trail.

    Re: Fond Memories of the Golden Horseshoe Revue

    I wish I had written everything down! Nope, just memory. How about this for y'all?

    Out of which song did this come:

    A miner from the Klondike
    Came a strolling in the place,
    With nuggets in his knapsack
    And a beard all down his face.

    He said, "A kiss I crave."
    And I said, "Sir! Not...till...you...shave...."

    "A lady has to mind her P's and Q's"

    Its the first song that Betty sings by herelf.

    And Dan mentioned "A Musical History of Disneyland" CD set. Its wonderful. Pick it up if you can find it. Its a 6 disc set.

    And please remember that there were other parts of the Golden Horshoe Revue (not just Betty, Donald, & Wally). Disney's own Strawhatters and the Main Street melodeers performed there as well. You would get 2 singers, a barbershop quartet, dancers, a Dixieland Jazz band, and a world class comedian for the low low price of FREE!

    I wish I could have been there to experience it!

    I wonder if they ever filmed the whole show, and if it's available on DVD.

    Oh, I was there, just too young to really appreciate it.

    They need to make a concerted effort to archive ALL the shows around the resort - you never know what will be valuable in 50 years.,. Even if that means paying a full-time video crew to film a day or two of shows each venue every few years.

    For live venues like the Golden Horseshoe or the Hyperion I'd set up a dozen fixed Hi-Def Video cameras semi-hidden around the place, and with one or two live cameramen to catch close-ups they could do it with no disturbance to the Guests.

    Re: Fond Memories of the Golden Horseshoe Revue

    The didn't film any of the first 9,999 shows. They filmed the 10,000th show, and it is available on DVD (ata a large price). But they added "special performances" and lengthened the show for the filmed one. From what I have heard it wasn't as good as the first 9,999.

    I agree. With the miniscule cost of media storage today it doesn't make sense not to record some of it.

    I remember that show and the can can dancers!! My Grandparents took me to the parks at least once a year since 1974 through the mid-80's and they loved the show. It was a must stop every visit. What a great thread and good memory
