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 Sign Of The Z

Just the other day, on Tuesday, November 3, the latest "wave" of the Walt Disney Treasures DVDs was released, featuring the entire series (in two sets) of Walt Disney's Zorro. When the series originally aired in prime time on ABC from 1957 through 1959 (the DVDs also include the rarely seen hour-long episodes that aired on the Walt Disney Presents anthology series), Zorro was all the rage with viewers, including Donald Duck, and (as Carl Barks might say) so too Hu, Dew and Lou, as evidenced by this May 1959 cover of Walt Disney's Comics and Stories, Number 224, drawn by Tony Strobl.
