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.

From The Pages of Sketches Magazine: It’s Minnie’s Birthday Too

Minnie Mouse is also celebrating the 79th anniversary of her debut as she too made her initial movie screen bow in the cartoon short Steamboat Willie on November 18, 1928. Here’s an article I wrote for Sketches, the Official Magazine of the Walt Disney Collectors Society. Published in the Winter 1998 issue, this article explores the career of Ms. Mouse through the years. If you’d like to receive Sketches in your mailbox four times a year, there’s only one way: You need to be a Member of the Walt Disney Collectors Society. Find out more here. In the meantime, move over, Mickey! It’s Minnie’s turn now.
