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.

More Madam Mim

In one of the most memorable sequences of Walt Disney's The Sword in the Stone, Madam Mim challenges Merlin to a Wizard's Duel. That fast-paced sequence—a superb example of the art of animation—was adapted into a charming 1963 Little Golden Book with expressive art by Al White and Hawley Pratt. Here's a page of the story (written by Carl Memling) showing the witch and the wizard about to start their spectacular duel, as Merlin's irritable owl Archimedes looks on. Come back to Tulgey Wood for more Mad Madam Mim throughout October. After all, what's Halloween without the madness of Mim?
