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.

On The 12th Day Of A 3D Christmas

In honor of Epiphany, here's a look at the wonderful Little Drummer Boy sets created I believe in 2009. Based on the classic 1968 Rankin/Bass TV special, these figures were sold in various configurations, with the Three Kings being sold separately. The Three Kings' arrival here at Tulgey Wood signals the arrival of Epiphany...and the end of our Christmas in 3D celebration. Watch for more 3D mania (mostly in the form of View-Masters) throughout 2013 right here at Tulgey Wood.

Drumming Up Some 3D Christmas Magic

I posted about the wonderful Little Drummer Boy View-Master set some time ago, and now to help us celebrate Christmas in 3D on this 11th day of Christmas, here is the Talking View-Master version of that packet. The larger package required allows for more scenes to be shown on the cover (click on the image for a larger view), so enjoy.  And be sure and check back for more 3D Little Drummer Boy tomorrow for Epiphany.

Happy 2013!

Undoubtedly every blog dealing with Disney and/or comics has used this classic cover drawn by Walt Kelly as a New Year's Day illustration...and now it's Tulgey Wood's turn. I'd also like to thank all the readers who so faithfully checked out this blog throughout 2012...and to welcome any new readers, especially any that may have found their way here via the Countdown to Halloween blogathon. Anyhow, here to make the beginning of 2013 fun, merry and bright is the cover of Walt Disney's Comics and Stories # 88 from January 1948. Happy New Year!
