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.

Share a Horse Laugh With Horace (and Other Disney Stars)

One of the many informative, intriguing and just plain fun offerings on the D23 website is a series of star bios. Who do we mean when we refer to Disney stars? Well, Mickey Mouse of course and Donald, Goofy, Minnie...but there's also some other members of the gang that don't always get the star treatment. I had the honor of writing these D23 biographies, and I have to admit I'm proudest of the pieces about such immortal but obscure Disney pals as Clarabelle Cow, Clara Cluck and that improbable matinee idol, Horace Horsecollar (seen here in panels from the famed Mickey Mouse newspaper comic strip drawn by Floyd Gottfredson, originally published on December 2, 1931; click on the image for a larger view).
