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.

Welcome, Great Pumpkin

The classic animated TV special It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown was first broadcast on October 27, 1966, making today the 46th anniversary of its first telecast. In 1968, as that Halloween cartoon treat was on its way to becoming an annual event, Hallmark released a whole series of Halloween "Plan-a-Party" goodies, including paper cups, napkins, a table cloth and centerpiece, and these invitations—all decorated with delightful Charles Schulz art of Great Pumpkin fanatic Linus and party animal Snoopy. These irresistible Hallmark goods undoubtedly helped many a host or hostess throw a Halloween hootenanny rivaling the one given by Violet in It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie BrownThis Halloween post is part of the Countdown to Halloween 2012 blog-a-thon.
