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.

More Charlie Brown's Christmas Stocking

As it gets to be time for you to hang your stockings by the chimney with care, here's a few more surprises stuffed in the Christmas stocking that is Tulgey Wood. These are some of the concluding pages of Charlie Brown's Christmas Stocking, the charming little booklet written and drawn by Charles M. Schulz for the December 1963 issue of Good Housekeeping. To put it in perspective, Charles Schulz's holiday entry in his "square little book" series for Determined Productions, Christmas is Together Time, was published in 1964 and the animated special A Charlie Brown Christmas debuted on CBS in 1965, so this little stocking-stuffer of a book was Schulz's first true non-strip exploration of the Christmas theme. (For the first few pages of this delightful little booklet, please visit here.)
