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.

Walter Elias Disney (December 5, 1901-December 15, 1966)

A fascinating artifact from late 1966-early 1967, the Annual Report of Walt Disney Productions for 1966 had to be "enhanced" because, printing schedules being what they are, the Report was completed before Walt's death on December 15 of that year—an obviously cataclysmic and (given the relative short period of Walt's illness) unexpected event. Here you can read the letter (click on the images for a larger view), written by Roy O. Disney, that literally covered and figuratively (and sadly) overshadowed that year's Annual Report.
