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.

Trick Or Treat For UNICEF

Here's a great tradition that's making a comeback. Created by kids in 1950, Trick or Treat for UNICEF is the U.S. Fund for UNICEF’s signature campaign. By Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF (the United Nations Children's Fund), thousands of kids and adults help UNICEF to provide nutrition, immunization,sanitation, access to clean water and proper education for children around the world. Last year, kids with their families, schools, corporations, and communities raised over $4.4 million and have raised more than $144 million to date. Some will recall how famous spokespersons, from Danny Kaye to Casper the Friendly Ghost have over the years promoted the charitable concept of harnessing the positive energy of Halloween to help children in need. Today the program is represented by some charming children reminiscent of the International kid cast of Walt Disney's It's a Small World, which was originally created to benefit UNICEF at the 1964-65 New York World's Fair. Happy Halloween!

How I remember the little orange boxes that folded together, and somehow looked so official. And saying "Trick or treat and trick or treat for Unicef" because we wanted to get all the candy we could too.
