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.

Here We Come A-Wassailing

In this lavish panel (click on the image for a larger view) from the magnificent Pogo Sunday page written and drawn by Walt Kelly for Christmas Day 1955, Albert the Alligator ponders the meaning of wassail at Pogo's carol singing party. I'm betting that even if you, like Albert, don't know exactly what wassail is, you know the Christmas carol the Okefenokee Swamp gang is singing (the lyrics are on the bottom of the panel) so why not join in, as we indeed ask God to send us a Happy New Year.
