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.

From The Pages of Sketches: An October Night On Bald Mountain

Here’s a Halloween-appropriate article from Sketches Magazine detailing the behind-the-scenes story of Chernabog from one of the most powerful animated films ever created, the Night on Bald Mountain sequence of Walt Disney’s Fantasia. Written by me (check out the byline in teeny-tiny type), these pages from the Winter 2007 issue focus on the masterful animation of the demonic Black God by Bill Tytla. The article was produced with the assistance of Tytla expert (and all-around Disney and animation authority) John Canemaker (see his website here) and Bill Tytla’s son, Peter. An artist like his dad, Peter’s website showcases his artwork, be sure and stop by. And remember, Sketches Magazine is only available to Members of the Walt Disney Collectors Society.

I always thought Chernabog was the creepiest Disney bad guy. He never gave me nightmares but he scared me little brother to bits!
