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.

Happy Halloween Month!

During October I hope to make a number of posts about scary subjects, and I don’t mean The Barefoot Executive. I mean really scary topics like monsters, witches and Disneyland Showtime, starring Kurt Russell and E. J. Peaker. (To the uninitiated that particular 1970 episode of The Wonderful World of Disney celebrated Disneyland Park’s The Haunted Mansion, which had opened in 1969. Watch for more on this TV spooktacular later this month.) To get things off to a very Halloween-ish start here’s a classic 1953 Little Golden Book cover by Disney artist Dick Kelsey, an adaptation of the Donald Duck cartoon Trick or Treat (released in October 1952).

I love the Trick or Treat cartoon! It's one of Disney's cutest Halloween projects.

I love this Golden Book (some of my favorite illustrations inside, as well!)
And I'll be Walkin' Happy when you write about "Disneyland Showtime!"

Disneyland Showtime is one of my favorite specials! Wish it was more officially available. And WOW to that golden book!!
