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.

When You Wish Upon Walt's Star(s)

Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Snow White may all have stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but so does their creator. In fact, in 1957, Walt Disney was on at least one of the committess that created this honorific/tourist attraction that bedazzles the sidewalks of Hollywood Boulevard, along with such luminaries as Cecil B. DeMille, Samuel Goldwyn and the "other" Walt of animation, Walter Lantz. The first Walk of Fame stars were unveiled in 1958, and Walt was honored with two stars—one for his achievements in motion pictures, the other for television—on February 8, 1961. Happy Birthday, Walt!
