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.

Celebrating The Super Moon

Tonight's super-full, super-bright Super Moon puts me in the mind of Walt Disney's "Man in Space" episodes from his Disneyland TV series. The second episode of these "science factual" shows, "Man and the Moon," was first broadcast on December 28, 1955, but the first Tomorrowland episode, "Man in Space," from March 9, 1955, also dealt with a mission to the moon. The cover from the Disney comic book below gives a glimpse of one of the Disney-designed rockets (and the moon)  In the meantime, savor the sight of the Super Moon while you can—the moon won't be this close to Earth again until August 2014.
