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.

More Haunted Mansion Hauntings

One of the most fun and most Halloween-esque promotions for Disneyland Park's opening of Haunted Mansion in 1969 was this edition of The Wonderful World of Disney magazine (Volume I, No. 4, 1970), the famous publication offered by Gulf Oil to promote the Disney TV series of the same name, which Gulf sponsored.  The photos of legendary Imagineer Yale Gracey interrupted in his Imagineering by one of the Mansion's silly spooks is a classic, and inspired more than one young Disney fan to pursue a career in Imagineering or just plain Disney-ing...after all, working with friendly- spirited spirits looks like so much fun! This post is part of the Countdown to Halloween 2012 blog-a-thon—be sure and stop by for more Halloween tricks and treats.
