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.

Uncle Scrooge and Christmas

Uncle Scrooge really should be the Christmas comic book poster child, as he was of course originally created for the 1947 Donald Duck comic story, "Christmas on Bear Mountain." Since then Scrooge has appeared in more than a few Yule-themed comics over the years, as celebrated in Duck artist Don Rosa's art, which served a salute to the 70th anniversary (which was acti of the World' Richest Duck. Here from Issue 383 (November 2008) is a Christmas "poster" (the front cover, also by Don Rosa, is seen here too) celebrating the Yule roots of Scrooge McDuck.
