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.

December 21, 1937

This magnificent poster (art by Gustaf Tenggren) heralded the release of Walt Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Premiering a matter of weeks after the final animation was completed, Snow White was an unqualified hit, and became the most popular movie ever released up until that time. In numbers of actual tickets sold on that first release and on its many reissues over the years, Snow White has probably been seen by more people than any other feature film.
