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.

December 5

Today is the birthday of Walt Disney, who was born in 1901. Certainly one of the best and most appropriate tributes ever paid to Walt is the affecting bronze sculpture Partners, sculpted by the great Imagineer Blaine Gibson. Originally dedicated on November 18, 1993 at Disneyland® Park in honor of Mickey's 65th anniversary, the statue was re-dedicated on what would have been Walt's 100th birthday, December 5, 2001, and Tulgey Wood features it here today in honor of the man and his day.
