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.

Hostess is Toast, It's Casper

I'm certainly not the only one posting one or another of the many Hostess comic-book ads in the wake of the news the badly mismanaged Hostess company's demise. Whatever Hostess's financial woes have been in recent years (and dubious nutritional value always), the company was obviously a big supporter of the comic-book industry in the 1970s as just about every family of comic-book characters (except Disney, but these ads were published in Disney comics) participated in these advertisements (drawn by artists from their respective houses), including Marvel, DC, Archie and Harvey. Here's a Casper ad from 1978.
