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.

The Parade Passes By, 1965

Thanks to Jack and Jill magazine, here's a glimpse of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade from 1965. Since this issue of the magazine was published for November 1966, we can assume that the photographs are from the previous year's parade. One interesting thing is who's hosting the parade for its colorcast on NBC: Lorne Green (star of the enormously popular in-living-color NBC hit Bonanza) and TV favorite (and recently appointed Disney Legend) Betty White. Also check out the wonderful Donald Duck balloon which had been introduced I believe in 1962. Whether you are about to watch the parade or have already experienced the 2009 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, enjoy these pages out of Thanksgiving parade history.

Hey Jim,

Is Sketches Magazine dead? Only 2 issues this year, even though we've all paid for 4, and the WDCS is now suspended. What do you know?
