Catching up With Disney Legend Bob Gurr
Joseph Pimentel

Gurr discusses what he's been up to since the shutdown.

ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. — Bob Gurr wants his fans to know that he is doing well despite being stuck at home because of the global coronavirus pandemic.

Before the shelter-in-place orders, the octogenarian Disney legend was a common sight at various theme park-related events, social mixers, and around his Los Angeles neighborhood. He hosted a Walt Disney history bus tour. He participated in autograph signings and visited various non-affiliated Disney and theme park industry events all across Southern California.


However, when the coronavirus forced nonessential businesses to close, limited mass gatherings, and caused people to shelter in place, Gurr, 88, holed up in his home in Tujunga for the past several months.

But he said since the pandemic, he has found himself busier than ever and learning something new every day.

“People assume an old guy all by himself is lonely, but I’ve been doing podcasts, live TV, and being an elderly Zoom vlogger,” Gurr told Spectrum News 1. “People are so used to a ‘Bob Gurr’ sighting at a park or a grocery store. They all got to get a piece of Bob.”
