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.

Island of the Misfit Aflac Duck

A very authentic and affectionate parody of the classic Rankin-Bass Christmas special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer has been produced for the Aflac insurance company, the one with the impatient duck who continually quacks (in the voice of Gilbert Gottfried) the name of Ben Affleck, uh, I mean the name of the insurance company. Word is that the TV commercial was created by Corky Quakenbush and that’s easy to believe—and not just because of Corky's last name. He was the producer of the famous Mad TV Rudolph parodies. You can see the Aflac commercial here.
