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.

Big "Mac": Billions and Billions Served

In just a few hours, Turner Classic Movies is up to its old tricks: showcasing some worthy Disney movies (in other words, treading where Disney Channel dares not go). As part of their month-long Summer Under The Stars series (a different movie star is saluted each day of August), TCM is presenting three Fred MacMurray films in a row (starting at 4:15 am PST): The Shaggy Dog (1959), The Absent-Minded Professor (1961) and Son of Flubber (1963). If you can't catch that sterling triple-feature check out the decidedly-not-Disney The Apartment (1960) featuring one of Fred's best (and not-too-Disney) performances. And keep your eyes on TCM for both the occasional Disney gem and other terrific films, some of them starring one of Disney's favorite stars, Fred MacMurray.
