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.

Art Prints Premium


Yesterday I posted about the 1971 Walt Disney World sweepstakes sponsored by Nestle's Quik to celebrate the opening of Bedknobs and Broomsticks. Today, here's the accompanying premium offer (seen on the front and back of the Quik package) of six "full color frameable art prints" based on the film's animated segment. 25 million one pound-and two pound cans of Quik carried the offer. Wonder how many sets of these "custom desgined by Walt Disney Studios" prints were given away? Interestingly, the art works shown on the cans were apparently prototypes, as the prints themselves were more "finished" and painterly than the more cartoony art shown on the packages. I acually prefer the style shown on the cans, but who's complaining? The Bedknobs and Broomsticks prints were free.

I have a full set of these...do you think they have any value?

Aubrey, thanks for visiting my blog. Yes, I believe these have a certain value, especially in mint condition with the envelope, if you can find the right buyer? eBay is a good bet if you want to give it a try...
