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: Walt’s Boyhood Hometown

To celebrate the anniversary of Walt Disney’s birth, here’s an article I wrote for the Spring 2001 issue of Sketches, the Official Magazine of the Walt Disney Collectors Society. From 1906 through 1910 Walt lived with his family on a farm in the small community of Marceline, Missouri, an experience that strongly influenced Walt and his future projects. I hope you enjoy reading this article from Sketches, a quarterly Disney magazine that's for anyone who loves Disney. Sketches is available exclusively to Members of the Walt Disney Collectors Society. For more information about Society Membership, go here.
