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.

More Merriment From Pogo & His Pals

Walt Kelly drew this festive scene in 1964, and it’s difficult to imagine a more fun-filled holiday celebration—or a more beautifully conceived, composed and executed work of cartoon art. One of its many joys is the number of cast members from his Pogo comic strip Mr. Kelly fit into the festivities, and how each character is conveyed with such personality. Take a look at Porky Pine—even though his face is partially hidden, Porky’s uncertainty and discomfort is communicated through the sheer artistry of Kelly’s drawing. The more you feast your eyes on this merry revel, the more you want to join in Pogo’s jolly song.
