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.

How Will I Know My Love?

Good news for all Disney fans: the new wave of the fantastic Walt Disney Treasures DVDs has been announced, and in addition to Donald Duck Volume III and the Scarecrow of Romney Marsh (more about that soon), the really great news is that the entire "Annette" serial from The Mickey Mouse Club TV show is getting the Treasures treatment. Starring (who else?) Annette Funicello, the serial co-stars those Disney TV faves Tim Considine and David Stollery (pictured here with Annette in their most famous Spin-and-Marty guises on a 1957 cover of Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse Club Magazine) the serial was a showcase for the most popular of the Mouseketeers. It's a thrill to anticipate not only every installment of this fun story being available to everyone on DVD but also what bonus materials might be included. (At the very least we can anticipate another full, hour-long episode of The Mickey Mouse Club, as was presented on the "Spin and Marty" and "Hardy Boys" DVDs.) Most of all we can look forward to "our fav'rite sweet brunette...Annette! Annette! Annette!"
