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.

Art Babbitt In The (1968) News

Tulgey Wood visitors undoubtedly often visit the  blog of artist Patrick Owsley, a visual feast for animation fans. A couple of days ago, Patrick ran something of historical interest: a 1968 issue of The Exposure Sheet newsletter from Hanna-Barbera Studios. Of particular interest in this issue of the H-B house organ is an interview with legendary animator Art Babbitt. In addition article properly credits Art's contributions as a major Disney artist but wisely avoids any mention of that messy 1941 strike business. Take a look at the entire newsletter at Patrick's blog (you will have to scroll down to the posts for Friday, November 29, 2008) here. You'll find plenty of other cartoon-related goodies there too.
