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.

Christmas Fun With The Flintstones

Since the days following Christmas Day often feature fun with gifts opened on Christmas morning, here's a playful Flintstones comic strip from December 25, 1964. There's a lot that's fun about this comic, including Pebble's thought-balloon comment about her doll looking like Fred (apparently the writer's sly reference to the multitude of Flintstones merchandise that was put out in the wake of the show's success) and a rare appearance by Baby Puss. (The Flintstones' cat appeared a bit more in the comic strip than in the TV series, not counting the end titles. This strip was posted by Yowp at his excellent Hanna-Barbera blog in 2010. Be sure and read his entire post about the fun of a Flintstones Christmas.

It also looks like Fred and the gang actually got all dressed up for the holiday; they seem to be wearing different outfits than normal.
