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.

Before Cinderella Glows Away Forever (or something like that)

I’m sure you’ve seen the TV commercials ominously informing one and all that “Cinderella is going back into the Disney Vault on January 31.” This could be a good time to check out the Cinderella Platinum Edition Collector’s DVD Gift Set. In addition to the 2 Disc DVD of the animated feature and accompanying bonus features and a set of lithographs, the Deluxe DVD also includes a book written by me. Walt Disney’s Masterpiece Cinderella: A Dream Come True was first published as part of the deluxe VHS and laser disc (sounds primitive, doesn’t it?) video release in 1995. The current volume is much smaller than the original version but it retains much of the art and all of my text: both the retelling of the film’s story and the historical creation-of-the-film account. Displayed here are the original cover, title page and some of the text, covering a few behind-the-scenes tidbits on Cinderella’s mouse friends, Gus and Jaq. Remember, just because the Cinderella DVD is “going back into the Disney vault” it's still available here and elsewhere.
