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.

A Little More Little Hiawatha

Here’s what everyone’s hankering for, another look at Little Hiawatha as he appeared in other media besides animation. The little Indian boy was featured in the Silly Symphonies Sunday comic page, charmingly written by Hubie Karp and drawn by Bob Grant (the artist of Disney's long-running Merry Menagerie daily comic panel), from November 10, 1940 through July 12, 1942, a nice run for the small but mighty star of Walt Disney’s 1937 Silly Symphony cartoon.
