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.

Woo Woo Hullabaloo!

In honor of St. Patrick's Day here's a grand Little Golden Book based on one of Walt Disney's finest live-action films, Darby O'Gill and the Little People (1959). Written by Annie North Bedford (one of the pen names of prolific Golden author and editor Jane Werner Watson) and illustrated by comic book artist David Gantz, this adaptation of the magical movie is the very thing to make us all feel Irish, even for just a day. Darby O'Gill and the Little People may be celebrating its golden anniversary (as is this delightful Little Golden Book) but today 'tis an elegant shade of green.
