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.

The Monster Who Stole Thanksgiving!

As you might recall from last November, and posts such as this, this and this, the Muppets are mighty popular here at Tulgey Wood. And since the Muppets mean monsters, here's a timely and monstrous treat for Thanksgiving. Published in 1997, The Thanksgiving Monster is a charming story wherein a monster steals Kermit's Thanksgiving feast. Does that get Kermit or his guests Miss Piggy and her nephews Randy and Andy, and the Elvises down? Of course not. Instead they decide to be thankful for what they have instead of what they don't have, like enjoying the "teensy-weensey snack" (her words) of candy, doughnuts, cupcakes and an entire regular-sized cake that she just happens to have in her purse. After observing the friends' thankfulness, the monster sees the errors of his ways for a Muppety ending that's full of the Thanksgiving spirit. (As the Elvises put it, "Thank you, thank you very much.")
