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.

Winnie The Pooh Waits For Santa

In the days when they were the sole licensee for Walt Disney's Winnie the Pooh, Sears put out some primo Pooh stuff, and this fun giveaway was no exception. This delightful activity booklet from 1976 features charming art of that silly old bear as he waits for Santa, his way. I hope the the front and back covers of this rare promotional giveaway (intended to promote the Thanksgiving Day Sears-sponsored broadcast of Winnie the Pooh Tigger, Too from 1976 as much as it did the Sears-exclusive Pooh merchandise) makes you feel all warm and fuzzy, just like Pooh Bear himself. (And if you have never seen it, check out all the wonderful Pooh Christmas art from Sears I posted in 2010.)
