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.

All Come Alive in 3 Dimensional View-Master Pictures

Thanks to the Sears "Wishbook" for Christmas 1966, here's a wonderful glimpse of the 3D wonders View-Master offered during its heyday (the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s). Sears offered over 180 sets and I'm not certain that weren't even more than that available from View-Master. Many travel and nature subjects were featured to be sure, but you can also see many Disney, Peanuts, Looney Tunes and other TV and movie titles too (click on the images for a larger view) And of course since this is from 1966, at the height of Bat-Mania, the catalog is sure to point out (as a "Special!) that "Now you can see BATMAN on your own stereo viewer." The classic 3D "magic" of View-Master is all part of the Christmas in 3D celebration right here throughout December.
