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.

Witch Hazel, or the Voice Thereof

As reported by Mark Evanier at, June Foray, the First Lady of Animation Voice Artists, was recently honored with a birthday party last week. Best known as the voice of Rocky the Flying Squirrel, the legendary Ms. Foray also voiced Witch Hazel in Walt Disney’s classic Halloween cartoon, Trick or Treat (1952). You can read a full report (and see video of June’s gracious speech) at the excellent website of animation historian and writer Harry McCracken, found here. In the meantime enjoy Witch Hazel (and her broom Beelzebub) on the comic book cover by Duck master Carl Barks for Donald Duck No. 26. Of course, that 1952 issue carried Carl’s excellent adaptation of the animated cartoon.
