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.

Great Minds Thinking Alike

Both Mark Evanier (at his long-running blog) and Ed Squair (at his brand-new blog) have posted about that terrific cereal spokes-cat and all-around wonderful cartoon character, Tony the Tiger. First stop over at Mark’s neighborhood and see an actual Sugar Frosted Flakes animated commercial (Mark rightly points out the cereal should always be referred to as Sugar Frosted Flakes, no matter what Kellogg's says) and you’ll not only see Tony (and Tony Jr.) but you'll also hear the great singer/voice artist Thurl Ravenscroft (a vocal favorite in more than one Disney production), and then drop by Ed’s place and see the Tony cel from a similar commercial Ed actually has in his collection—each designed in that sophisticated Cartoon Modern style. Both Mark and Ed have good blogs. Good? They’re G-R-R-R-R-REAT!

Thanks for the shoutout Jim!

I think I had the chance to buy a cel from that commercial Evanier has up - or at least a similar one where Tony has those odd, pointy teeth that are a little scary.
