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.

They Weren't Kidding When They Called Her Well, a Witch

The Sea Witch from The Little Mermaid is one of the most popular nasties in the rogue’s gallery of Disney villains, so as indicated by this issue of Sketches Magazine (Spring 2007), Ursula was the Walt Disney Collectors Society's selection for the annual Disney Villains series sculpture. The article by Stephen Matzke reveals this Members-Only sculpture of the vile villainess is actually a set of two sculptures: Ursula and her undersea vanity, featuring an actual mirror. This wicked, octopus...make that witch is available exclusively to Members of the Walt Disney Collectors Society and is only available through the somehow significant date of October 31, 2007. As that's only a few days away, active Society Members may want to quickly “make a deal” with the duplicitous she-devil. Anyone who is interested in becoming a Society Member (and also get a subscription to Sketches, the Official Magazine of the Walt Disney Collectors Society) can call 1.800.932.5749 (go here for more details) and should also tell the customer service representative they wish to obtain Ursula before this devilish diva swims away for good on Halloween.
