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.

A Hanna-Barbera Halloween (Or Close Enough)

There weren't a lot (if any) specifically Halloween-themed Hanna-Barbera comic books but there were plenty that fit the macabre mood, especially with Scooby Doo on board. Here are three favorites: the monster-movie themed cover from Scooby Doo Mystery Comics # 21 from October 1973 (from the Gold Key era; thankfully [and incredibly] Scooby Doo is still being published today); a tale of the Headless Horseman from the comic based on the underrated Funky Phantom show, issue # 2, June 1972; and Magilla Gorilla # 9 from October 1966.This Halloween post is part of the Countdown to Halloween 2012 blog-a-thon, adding fun to your October festivities all month long.
