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.

Making Merry With Archie And His Pals And Gals

That all-American teen Archie knows how to celebrate Christmas, as evidenced from the vast number of holiday-themed Archie comics published through the decades. From an earlier era, here's a great cover of that evergreen holiday title Archie's Christmas Stocking (#6 from 1959), in which Master Andrews, pal Jughead and gals Veronica and Betty are ready for holiday hilarity decked out in Dickens-style carolers garb—and just look at the typically scampish expression on the face of the conceited and ever-crafty Reggie! Archie still gets up to holiday hijinks every year as seen here in the 2009 issue of the Archie's Holiday Fun Digest (#9). Bets and Ronnie stop sparring over Archie long enough to decorate the Christmas tree, and in a time-honored comic book-cover tradition, the various characters are seen in the surface of the shiny ornaments Archie's gals hang on the evergreen.
