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.

Ehh, Trick or Treat, Doc

Halloween seems tailor made for a trickster like Bugs Bunny, and that Oscar-winning wabbit headlined several issues of a Giant "Trick n Treat" comic, each with spectacularly spooky-yet-silly cover art. This example from the fourth edition of Bugs Bunny's Halloween Fun has particularly winning artwork with Bugs mischievously giving the business to straight man (make that straight ham) Porky Pig. Published in 1956, this Trick or Treat bag of comic book candy hit the stands the same year the Halloween-themed Looney Tune Broomstick Bunny was released to theaters, co-starring the "ugliest one of all," Witch Hazel.
