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.

What’s My (Wonderfully Drawn) Line?

One of the many (at least 101) joys of Walt Disney’s One Hundred and One Dalmatians is the sharply designed cast of characters, and that extends to the spoof of the popular TV panel show What’s My Line? enjoyed by the Badun brothers in the film. Due in large part to the skilled and only recently celebrated character designer Tom Oreb, What’s My Crime? (as the Dalmatians parody is entitled) features a wonderfully caricatured moderator, panel and contestant. Also pictured here (as published with the groundbreaking article about Oreb by Amid Amidi in his excellent Animation Blast magazine) is a Tom Oreb model sheet of the What’s My Crime? challenger, Percival Fauncewater, or as he is known to the Baduns, Meathead.

Great scan!

Thanks for sharing this with us. I always thought that scene was a little wry!

This film is so full of fabulous character design, and this sequence is one of my favorites.
