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.

Another Determined Production: Crabby Costume

Here's a fun Halloween item: you can be the queen of crabbiness herself, Lucy Van Pelt, with this Peanuts Costume, created by the Peanuts licensee supreme, Determined Products. Released in the 1970s, this perfect-for-Great-Pumpkin watching (or scorning) outfit originally cost $3.18 according to the price tag from Rinks department store (which was apparently in Ohio) on the suitably pumpkin-orange box. (Also available: Charlie Brown and Snoopy costumes....but no Linus. Linus is of course waiting in the sincere pumpkin patch, waiting for the Great Pumpkin.)

Wouldn't it be considered "breaking character" if one was to purchase a Linus costume for trick-or-treating instead of donning it for an all-nighter in a pumpkin patch?

I personally think it would. Good thinking, James!
