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.

A Harvey Halloween

Casper the Friendly Ghost was the cornerstone of the Harvey comic book empire and their friendly flagship phantom inspired some Halloween worthy covers. Here are just two examples: Casper, #101, dated January 1967 and Little Audrey  #73, dated December 1967. (Both of these comics were obviously intended to be on stands for Halloween 1966.) Judging by Playful Little Audrey's reaction it's fairly apparent that she never had much interaction with her Harvey neighbors such as the Ghostly Trio, Spooky the Tuff Little Ghost or even Wendy the Good Little Witch or Casper himself (all characters pictured on the Casper cover shown below ...otherwise wouldn't she be more inured to this sort of thing? This post is all part of the Countdown to Halloween 2012 blog-a-thon. Come back for more Halloween fun all this month.
