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.

Are You Off To See The Wizard?

Today, March 8, brings the opening of the new Oz movie from Disney, Oz The Great and Powerful. To celebrate, here's a rare bit of Ozania from a rarely seen bit of Oz animation. It's the letterhead form the short-lived TV series Off to See the Wizard. This whimsical line art—elegantly enhanced with a spot of color in the form of the Yellow Brick Road—is based on the Chuck Jones-dessigned version of the beloved Oz characters seen in the television show (although the art here is actually more pleasing than the designs as realized on the show). Be sure and click the art for a larger view—and watch for much more OTSTW here at Tulgey Wood in the future.
