You’ve wandered into the topsy-turvy world of Tulgey Wood, the blog of writer and historian Jim Fanning. Tulgey Wood celebrates artistry and creativity (and sometimes just plain madness): movies, animation, TV, books, comics—and of course Disney, lots and lots of true-blue, through-and-through Disney, including D23 and Disney twenty-three Magazine, and Sketches Magazine and the Walt Disney Collectors Society. Tulgey Wood is so fun, fascinating and full of frolicsome photos and facts, it’s scary. So wander through the wonder of it all, and enjoy.

Sincerity As Far As The Eye Can See

It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown premiered over the CBS network on October 27, 1966. Like its predecessors, A Charlie Brown Christmas and Charlie Brown’s All-Stars, The Great Pumpkin was a smash hit, so popular in fact that the special's success in the TV ratings was front page news in the show business trade paper, The Hollywood Reporter. Today, for most viewers, the animated special crystallizes the classic Halloween spirit, and is certainly one of the finest of the TV adaptations of Charles M. Schulz’s classic comic strip.
