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.

That Was Then For The Gremlins

In tribute to Walt Disney’s Gremlins—and their triumphant return to comics, as mentioned in the last post—here’s a classic cover from the July 1943 issue of Walt Disney’s Comics and Stories, attributed to the great Walt Kelly. This issue, Number 34, also included a comic story written and drawn by Walt (Kelly, not Disney) entitled “Gremlin Gus and the Widgets,” one of a handful of short Kelly Gremlin stories, but this is the only comics cover on which the little guys appeared (until 2008, that is).
