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.

Wishing Upon Winnie the Pooh's Star

Did you know that Winnie the Pooh has a star on Hollywood Boulevard? Many of this blog's readers undoubtedly are aware of this fun fact (though OMD is not). On April 11, 2006, Winnie the Pooh became the fourth animated character created by Walt Disney (in Pooh's case, by way of A.A. Milne) to be honored with a star on the Walk of Fame along Hollywood Boulevard. As wonderful as it would have been in any case, the photo below (shot by award-winning photographer Nick Ut of AP) is simply made by the little girl (identifed as two-year-old Calista Bess)
who is seen seemingly approaching Pooh and his friends for a hug (or an autograph). Speaking of Hollywood stars, don't miss my account of Snow White receiving her star at, as well as this Tulgey Wood post all about Walt Disney's own Hollywood Boulevard star(s). UPDATE: OMD amended their fun Snow White post to include Winnie the Pooh in their mention of Disney characters who have been honored with stars on Hollywood Boulevard.
