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.

With a Hip Hip and a Clippity Clop, He's Looking For a Head to Chop

Stop by 2719 Hyperion and discover some fascinating (and frightening?) facts about Walt Disney’s Halloween classic The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (from The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad, especially the sensational “Headless Horseman” song, sung and swung by the great Bing Crosby. Jeff Pepper provides the fun and Disney historian Jim Korkis supplies some more insights straight from Sleepy Hollow. The "Headless Horseman" song somehow remains a relatively little-known gem but it's been recorded (and wonderfully so) by the likes of Thurl Ravenscroft (on the pictured 1963 LP) and Kay Starr.
