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.

Angela All Day On TCM

Much merchandise was created for the original 1971 release of Bedknobs and Broomsticks, including this coloring book featuring a fine painting of the children, the rabbit, the glowing magic bedknob (bed attached) and Angela Lansbury as Miss Price. Today, Ms. Lansbury is the subject of Turner Classic Movie's monthlong Summer of Stars, spotlighting a particular star each day of August. In addition to such fascinating Lansbury films as All Fall Down and The Manchurian Candidate, TCM will be presenting Bedknobs and Broomsticks at 6:00 pm EST/3:00 pm PST—and watch this space for news of an in-depth behind-the-scenes article by me about Bedknobs and Broomsticks.
