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.

Blazing A New Frontier At The Walt Disney Family Museum

If you are in the San Francisco area this weekend, you won't want to miss the Fess Parker tribute at the Walt Disney Family Museum. Jeff Kurtti, otherwise known as King of the Wild Disney Historians and one of the guiding imaginations and Disney authorities behind the splendid museum devoted to a man named Walt, will be hosting two very special salutes to the tall Texan who so winningly portrayed the coonskin-capped Congressman in Walt Disney's groundbreaking, blockbusting "Davy Crockett" TV shows. For more information about all the Fess Parker festivities, check out the Museum's website.

Thanks for the "plugola" Jim! It was a really terrific weekend, and the Parker family could not have been more gracious, generous, and available to our Museum audience. It was a fitting and fun tribute to a man who is, as the Museum's Donna Tuggle introduced him, "a Disney Legend and an American Icon."
