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.

The Wonderful World of Disneyland Showtime!

Here's a tantalizing artifact promoting The Wonderful World of Disney TV show for the spring of 1970  from The Wonderful World of Disney (an apt title) magazine, 1970, Volume II, No. 2. This marvelously produced publication was available at Gulf service stations because Gulf Oil was the sponsor of (wait for it) The Wonderful World of Disney TV show. One of the most intriguing Disney episodes spotlighted here is "Disneyland Showtime." Broadcast on March 22, 1970, this very special episode is prime Halloween viewing because of its focus on the newly unveiled Haunted Mansion at Disneyland Park and Kurt Russell's fun and informative behind-the-scenes tour thereof. If you haven't already done so, be sure and check out my blog entry from Halloween, 2007, about the show entitled "Haunted Mansion Horror: Disneyland Showtime."
