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.

D23 Salutes Richard Sherman

On the eve of the release (a limited release, in Los Angeles and San Francisco) of the boys: the sherman brothers' story, a new documentary created by the Shermans' sons (the Sherman Cousins, one might say), the D23 website has a wonderful salute to Richard Sherman, in which that great songwriter, historian, and human being re-visits Sound Stage 2 (where Mary Poppins was filmed) and 3C 10/11 in the original Animation Building, where the Shermans had their office in the glory days at the Walt Disney Studios. Take a look at this photo from the back of the album cover of the 1967 second-cast (a second cast including Richard Sherman) LP for The Happiest Millionaire, and you can see Richard and Robert (aka Dick and Bob) Sherman posing near the famed Mickey Avenue/Dopey Drive street sign at the studio. Then hurry over to the D23 website (it's free, you know) and reminisce with Richard.
