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.

Halloween is Pirate Time

I’ve had some questions about the pirate sculptures showcased on the cover of Sketches Magazine posted here a few days ago. Those beautifully sculpted buccaneers are from Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl and are not yet available. Sculpted in the likeness of Johnny Depp, Captain Jack Sparrow will be debuting in December. The Captain Barbossa sculpture (as portrayed by Geoffrey Rush) will be unveiled as the Winter Premiere Event sculpture at participating Walt Disney Classics Collection dealers, December 1-2. Watch this blog for more details closer to the Event dates. (Now, if you were a member of the Walt Disney Collectors Society, you’d be getting Sketches and you would know these things—I’m just saying.) And by the way, if you think pirates don’t necessarily mean Halloween, wait until you see all the pirates that will knock on your door round about the 31st.
