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 Hiawatha Month!

To help celebrate Thanksgiving (November 22 this year), I’ll be posting this month about Walt Disney’s delightful character Little Hiawatha. Introduced in the charming 1937 Silly Symphony, this little boy “brave” never appeared in another film, but Hiawatha was too intriguing and adorable for Disney to allow him to simply fade away. This is the original theatrical poster on which the cartoon is incorrectly titled Hiawatha. Stop by this blog throughout November for lots more of Little Hiawatha.

Little Hiawatha was always one of my favorite Silly Symphony characters. The first time I actually saw him was in an old book of Disney stories it wasn't until many years later that I finally saw the cartoon.
