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.

Visions of Sugar Plums...

For the waning moments of Christmas Eve, here is one of my favorite Christmas comic book covers, one of my favorite Disney comic book covers—well, it's one of my favorite comic book covers, period. Created for Dell Giant, Walt Disney's Christmas Parade, Number 7, published for Christmas 1955, this cozy artwork portrays Mickey and Donald trimming the tree and Minnie and Daisy wrapping up some Christmas goodies, while Huey, Dewey and Louie and Morty and Ferdie and Uncle Scrooge snuggily sleep, visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads... or maybe in the case of Uncle Scrooge, it's visions of dollar signs. Whatever visions are dancing through your heads this Christmas Eve, I hope they are very merry indeed.
